Ash Wednesday - February 17th, 2021
Ash Wednesday Online Service at 7pm (After Soup Supper)
On Ash Wednesday we begin our forty-day journey toward Easter with a day of repentance. This year we will be viewing our service online. Marking our foreheads with dust, we acknowledge that we die and return to the earth. At the same time, the dust traces the life-giving cross indelibly marked on our foreheads at baptism. While we journey through Lent to return to God, we have already been reconciled to God through Christ. We humbly pray for God to make our hearts clean while we rejoice that “now is the day of salvation.” Returning to our baptismal call, we more intentionally bear the fruits of mercy and justice in the world.
We invite you to tune in to Faith's Facebook page or YouTube channel at 7pm for our Ash Wednesday Service (by clicking the buttons below).
The scriptures for the day, communal prayers, and words for the hymns will all be displayed on your screen during worship.
