Ash Wednesday Service

Invitation To Lent 2015.001

ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE • WED 2/18 • 7PM • VINE SANCTUARY

For the 40 days before Easter, excluding Sundays, allow God to shape your life around the cross and empty tomb of Christ with fresh intentional ways. Let’s begin our Lenten journey together on Ash Wednesday.

In the Bible, ashes are symbolic of mourning, mortality, and repentance, and these themes help set the tone for the coming 40 days of Lent as we purposefully set aside time for reflection on the life, sacrifice, death, and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Lent is typically characterized by repentance, fasting, prayer, and/or giving. More information and ideas can be found in our monthly mega-bulletins and Lent page. Come join us for a reflective and participatory service as we draw closer to God by remembering the sacrifice and resurrection hope of our savior.

Parents are encouraged to participate with their children.

Grace & Peace.
