6 to 7 pm – Empty Bowl Soup Supper
We invite you to participate in a special Empty Bowl Project to raise money for the Inter Faith Council Social Services. Members of the church have been busy making pottery bowls to be sold at the Ash Wednesday dinner as part of a soup and bowl fundraiser. The cost of the dinner will include a take home bowl and a bowl of soup. Suggested $15 donation.
7 to 8 pm – Ash Wednesday Worship Service
Ash Wednesday begins the 40 days of the season of Lent. Lent is a time of preparation for the joy of Easter. On Ash Wednesday human mortality is underscored (literally). During the Ash Wednesday service there is the opportunity for ashes to be placed on our foreheads as a reminder of our mortality, our flesh. [ . . . you are dust and to dust you shall return . . . Genesis 3:19] But it also points to the one who created us, and thus the service becomes a pronouncement of hope and grace. Please join us for worship at 7 pm.
