Ash Wednesday worship service

We begin the reflective season of Lent with a service of confession, turning, and ashes. As we gather in the shadows, we turn our lives again toward the cross, committing ourselves to a season of preparation. 

The worship service will include a time to confess the ways we have fallen short of God's vision, as well as an opportunity to renew our commitment to God's call. The imposition of ashes--when a cross of ashes is marked on the forehead--is a reminder that we are dust, and to dust we shall return, but God's steadfast love endures forever.
