Ash Wednesday – Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent and emphasizes two themes: our sinfulness before God and our human mortality. The service focuses on both themes, helping us to realize that both have been triumphed through the death and resurrection of Christ. During our Ash Wednesday service, our Pastor will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers (imposition of the ashes). The ashes signify purification and sorrow for sins. The ashes are made by burning the palm branches from the previous Palm Sunday service. The ash cross on the forehead is an outward sign of our sorrow and repentance for sins.
