Ash Wednesday Service this Wednesday

February 11, 2018

Ash Wednesday is this Wednesday, February 14.    This day initiates the series of Lent which in the church has been for centuries a forty day period for more intense focus on what it is that God has done for us in Jesus through the active obedience of Jesus in His life, the active obedience of Jesus in going to the cross as our sin-bearer and sacrifice, and the great work of God in raising Jesus from the dead so that we can be declared to be right with God on the basis, and only on the basis; of what God has done for us in Jesus.  Ash Wednesday marks us rightly as depraved men and women before a holy and righteous God who are in desperate need of Jesus.  Do you want to know and celebrate what real love really is?  You will not find it I promise in a Valentine but you will find it at the cross.  Join us this Wednesday at 6 in the sanctuary for our Ash Wednesday service.  ALL OTHER ACTIVITIES EXCEPT FOR THE NURSERY ARE RELOCATED TO THE SANCTUARY FOR THE SERVICE.  THE CHOIR WILL MEET AT 7 FOR WORSHIP PREPARATION FOR SUNDAY.
