Ash Wednesday Worship, Feb. 18, 7:00 p.m.

“Return to me,” says the Lord. Ash Wednesday ash wed with crossmarks the beginning of Lent — 40 days of spiritual preparation for the celebration of Easter. The message focuses on the question — What difference does it make that we serve the Lord? Worship includes meaningful music and reading of scripture and the imposition of ashes. (Christians receive a mark of ashes on their foreheads or hands as a token of penitence).
