Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lenten season for observant Christians. It is traditionally a time of fasting and prayer in preparation for receiving or reaffirming baptism at Easter. For some Christians, Lent is a time to think about one’s life choices and mortality, as well as reflect on life directions. It serves as a wake-up call for some Christians. There are also those who choose this time of the year to make special donations to charities or take part in charity events as a way to grow closer to God.
Come and worship on Ash Wednesday, February 26. Arrive in the sanctuary any time between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m. for a self-guided tour of the elements of Ash Wednesday.
