7 PM – Worship Service with Imposition of Ashes (sanctuary).

On Ash Wednesday we begin our forty-day journey toward Easter with a day of fasting and
repentance. Marking our foreheads with dust, we acknowledge that we die and return to the
earth. At the same time, the dust traces the life-giving cross indelibly marked on our foreheads
at baptism. While we journey through Lent to return to God, we have already been reconciled to
God through Christ. We humbly pray for God to make our hearts clean while we rejoice that
“now is the day of salvation.” Returning to our baptismal call, we more intentionally bear the
fruits of mercy and justice in the world.
