Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection.
On Wednesday, February 26 we will celebrate Ash Wednesday with open prayer from 6-8am, and then gather for worship at 7pm in the Sanctuary.
Childcare is available for our Worship service beginning at 6:30pm in Room #3.
