Ash Wednesday services

Looking Ahead to Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday this year is March 1st, the day that marks the beginning of the Season of Lent, and once again we will gather in worship at both 11:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and celebrate Holy Communion as we begin the journey to the cross with Jesus. As we enter into the Lenten period of 40 days, our worship also includes a time when we mark with ashes the sign of the cross on one’s forehead, a ritual which has been part of Ash Wednesday worship over all the centuries. This visible sign not only identifies us as followers as Christ Jesus, but also reminds us of our deep need for God’s love and mercy in our lives.

The worship services on Ash Wednesday are scheduled for 11:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. However, beginning 10 minutes before each service, you are invited to come into the sanctuary where you will be invited to come forward to the altar rail for the imposition of ashes. We ask that you then take some moments and sit in quiet meditation in preparation for worship to begin.  Each Wednesday through Lent we will also have worship services at 11:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.  All are welcome!

Beginning on Ash Wednesday and following through all Wednesdays in Lent and Maundy Thursday, you are invited to a time of fellowship at either noon or at 5:30 p.m. for a hearty meal of soup. Thank you to Mandy Johnson who is catering this year and the individuals / committees who have signed up to set up serve, make desserts and clean up.

The worship committee is looking for willing participants for our Lenten “Temptations of Jesus” drama series this year. During Lent, we gather for worship each Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. and again at 7:00 p.m., and these dramatic dialogs will capture the difficulties that Jesus encountered when he was human on earth.

Would you be interested in sharing your dramatic gifts at one of the Wednesday services? Pastor Janel is gathering the cast together now, so please let her know of your willingness. And don’t worry about skill level. Experience is not final criteria – only desire!

On the first Sunday of each month, our Parish Nurse, Linda Peterson, offers free blood pressure checks.  You don’t need to sign up in advance – just come to the church office after the 9 a.m. worship service.  If you have any other health questions or issues you would like to discuss with her, she is also available to talk with you, or set up a time to talk with you, about these things, too.
