Ash Wednesday is February 26, 2020.
We have Ashes on the Go for folks who can't make it to a service. Ministers will be placing ashes on peoples foreheads from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Christ Church in the parking lot on the corner of Martin and Fremont streets. We will also have a 12 noon and 7 p.m. service that day. The ashes remind us of our deep need of God and God’s promise of bringing resurrection to things that are dead.
There are several opportunities to deepen your spiritual walk with God this Lent. They include:
On the first Sunday in Lent, March 1st and on Palm Sunday, April 5 we will have our regular potluck parish luncheons. It is a really good chance to get to know one another and support each other with a meal and fellowship.
