special services

Ash Wednesday
February 14, 2024

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. This year we will offer an opportunity to receive ashes from 8:30 to 9:00 am in the Sanctuary on February 14.  The reflections we share in our traditional Ash Wednesday Service will be incorporated into Worship on Sunday, February 18th.  We consider our own personal spiritual growth during the days leading up to Holy Week and Easter.

entry into Jerusalem with our children carrying palms.  Our choir will offer a special anthem

accompanied by scripture.

Good Friday Tenebrae - 7:00 p.m

Tenebrae means “shadows.” We will read the story

into the darkness of the tomb.
