Ash Wednesday and the Beginning of Lent—February 22
The beginning of Lent is right around the corner. Ash Wednesday will be a very unique and special service, including the Imposition of Ashes, the Lenten Litany, corporate confession and individual absolutions. From ancient times the season of Lent has been kept as a time of special devotion, self-denial, and humble repentance born of a faithful heart that dwells confidently on His Word and draws from it life and hope. Let us pray that our dear Father in heaven, for the sake of His beloved Son and in the power of His Holy Spirit, might richly bless this Lententide for us that we may come to Easter with glad hearts and keep the feast in sincerity and truth. Lent begins with Ash Wednesday Divine Services at 7:00 p.m. We will have a light luncheon before each of the midweek services. Watch for more details to come.
