ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICES | MARCH 6
The observation of Ash Wednesday and the season of Lent has solid roots in the history of Church and worship practices. The word “Lenten” means “lengthen,” and the purpose of the season is repentance and a 40-day fast or spiritual focus in preparation for Easter weekend. Each year more Protestant and Evangelical churches are emphasizing these liturgical roots and traditions.
We will observe Ash Wednesday (March 6, 2019) with three different service times – 11:00 a.m., Noon, and 6:30 p.m. in our Chapel. These services are open to anyone in our church or community. A simple Ash Wednesday service usually lasts around 20 minutes – with 15 minutes for readings and music and five minutes for applying ashes in the shape of a cross on one’s forehead. The ashes come from Palm Sunday leaves from the year before.
