Lent begins with a solemn call to fasting and repentance as we begin our journey to the baptismal waters of Easter.

Ash Wednesday morning worship • 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel.

Soup and bread lunch • 12 noon in the Chapel basement.

Soup and bread dinner • 6:00 p.m. in the Life Together Hall.

Ash Wednesday evening worship • 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary.

The sign of ashes suggests our human mortality and frailty. What seems like an ending is really an invitation to make each day a new beginning, in which we are washed in God’s mercy and forgiveness. With the cross on our brow, we long for the spiritual renewal that flows from the springtime Easter feast to come.

Join us for Ash Wednesday worship that includes confession, singing Psalm 51, imposition of ashes, Ash Wednesday sermon, Holy Communion, and Lenten hymns
