Ash Wednesday

ASH WEDNESDAY WORSHIP SERVICE
Wednesday, February 18
7:00 pm

Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of adherents as a sign of mourning and repentance to God. The ashes used are typically gathered after the palms from the  previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned. Each participant receives a mark on their forehead with black ashes in the shape of a cross. The act echoes the ancient Near Eastern tradition of throwing ashes over one’s head to signify repentance before God.

Church Growth

PASTOR’S STUDY
Mondays at 6:30 pm
Meeting Room A

The current study focuses on the theme: “Becoming the church for tomorrow, today”. We will discuss current trends and patterns in the wider church and culture and explore paradigm shifting ideas and practices that can plant the seeds for us to develop more faithful, effective, and courageous expressions of being Christ’s church in today’s world. Please let the church office know if you need child care.

Pastor’s Lenten Study beginning February 23
Pastor Ray will be using the book, “The Present Future” by Reggie McNeal for the Pastor’s Study. This study offers a difficult but truth-telling word about some of our failed assumptions and efforts as the Body of Christ. By no means a serene devotional, McNeal’s book afflicts the comfortable and gives us the opportunity to return to Christ for direction, restoration, and transformation.
