    Ash Wednesday and Lent, A Time of Preparation

    The Ash Wednesday service, celebrated on February 26, is a special time to recommit ourselves to God as we strive to grow in grace, taking seriously Paul’s call to “present ourselves as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God” (Romans 12:1). The service will begin at 7 PM, includes literally nailing our sins on the cross, and concludes as palm ash (from the palms used for Palm Sunday last year) are used to draw a cross on each person’s forehead as a sign of confession, repentance, and dedication to God.
