Ash Wednesday Information & Resources

On Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, we use the ashes from last year’s palm branches to remember that we are human — that we make mistakes.  We also remember that God loves us no matter what.  God’s love is stronger than any mistakes we might make.  It is a love that won’t stop — even when our own life here on earth does.

Ash Wednesday — an Invitation to Enter Into Lent

Four Ash Wednesday opportunities February 17:

1. Open Sanctuary with imposition of Ashes

Pastors Doug and Molly will be outside from 5:00 – 6:00pm on Ash Wednesday and safely distribute ashes (masked and using a Q-tip to apply the ashes) and offer a prayer as you drive-through the parking lot in front of the gathering space.
