Wednesday, February 17th 7:00 p.m

We will have our Ash Wednesday Service at the church for anyone who is interested in coming. It will immediately follow our prayer time from 6:30 –7:00 p.m. The service will be live via Facebook for those who would like to join with us and we will be celebrating Holy Communion. Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the season of Lent, the 40 days prior to Easter minus the 6 Sundays, when the church prepares to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday morning. This is a time of self-reflection and evaluation, a timeto search our hearts to rid ourselves of those things that may hinder our relationship with God. Many churches use this as a time of self-denial when people give up something so that they can spend more time in prayer as well as take any money they may save and give it to those in need. The challenge for us is what do we give up. Some give up coffee, chocolates, desserts, etc.and this is all well and good. I would like to challenge us a congregation to consider maybe giving up 30 minutes a day of television, or reading, or recreation and use that time to spend in prayer for the church, for each other and for yourself that you might grow in yourrelationship with the Lord.
