Ash Wednesday Worship February 14, 6:00-6:30 pm

The Bible does not mention Ash Wednesday or the custom of Lent, however, the practice of repentance and mourning in ashes is found in 2 Samuel 13:19; Esther 4:1; Job 2:8; 

Daniel 9:3; and Matthew 11:21. We hope you will plan on attending this service as we begin our 40 days of Lent observation.

Pastor Jacqui will be available in the courtyard 7:30-8:45 am for the imposition of ashes.

*Please find attached our 40 Day Reading Plan Through Mark
