Ash Wednesday Worship


Ash Wednesday Worship

Wednesday, March 1 | 7:00pm | Sanctuary

All ages are invited to join us as we begin our Lenten Journey toward Holy Week and Easter. We celebrate the sacrament of communion and give you an opportunity to have ashes (last year’s palms) placed on your forehead or back of your hand. The choir sings and we hear Jesus’ words about being more faithful as recorded in Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21. We also light our Lenten candles of courage, vulnerability, patience, flexibility, receptivity, advocacy, generosity. Each time we worship during Lent, we will extinguish one candle as we get closer to the darkness of Good Friday. We light all of the candles again on Easter morning as nothing can extinguish God’s light or love.

7:30pm—Candlelight Communion Worship

Prelude music for flute and organ begins at 7:105pm. This is a quieter and more contemplative service than the earlier one.

We will celebrate the sacrament of communion at our open table and sing Silent Night by candlelight.
