About Us

 

We are what God has made us – people whom God has created by grace to live in union with Jesus Christ and has prepared to live faithful, fruitful lives by the power of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:8-10). In Jesus Christ, God has reconciled us to God and to each other. As we gather around word and sacraments, this life in Christ is what defines, shapes and guides us as a community of faith, the church. 

By God’s grace we can and do live confidently and generously in this community of faith and in service of others, amid the mysteries and paradoxes of this life in Christ – including our human limitations and failings, and the ambiguities, uncertainties and suffering that we experience.

Come worship with us this Sunday  at 10:00 am 

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday Service February 26th 12:00 noon

   


  • Mardi Gras, or “Fat Tuesday,” is the Tuesday before Lent begins.
  • The official start of the Lenten Season is Ash Wednesday.
  • During the Lenten season, many people make a personal commitment to fasting or giving up certain things in their lives as an act of penitence.
  • Why 40 days? The number is significant throughout Scripture; Noah was on the Ark for 40 days, Moses fasted 40 days before receiving the Ten Commandments and Jesus spent 40 days fasting in preparation for His work on earth.
  • The liturgical color for Lent is purple, the color of repentance and sorrow for sin.
  • The celebration of Lent is not a commandment but an opportunity to renew our faith and edify our spirit.

 

Ash Wednesday signifies the start of Lent. The day is often started with a service where members are asked to recognize their own mortality, repent their sins, and return to God. On Ash Wednesday the faithful begin their Lenten sacrifices and commit to changes in their lives.

At Ash Wednesday services, the pastor marks the sign of the cross on each person’s forehead with ashes. The ashes are an important symbol that represents mortality and repentance. Ashes connect with mortality because when we die our bodies fade away to ash and with repentance because in Scripture people would put ashes on their head and wear sackcloth as an act of contrition.

The ashes have further meaning in that the ashes used come from the previous year’s Palm Sunday. The palms used on Palm Sunday are burned and mixed with water, which is symbolic of tears.
