The season of Lent begins this Wednesday, March 6, with Ash Wednesday. This is a traditional time of repentance: of changing the direction of our lives and thoughts. We turn to God, and undertake spiritual disciplines, like prayer, fasting or sacrificial giving for the sake of the poor. Our Ash Wednesday events include:
–“Ashes to Go” in Lake Ann Village, 7am-9am. This is not meant to replace worship or prayer, but instead to be visible and present for the surrounding community, inviting them to join us in reflection. If you have prayer requests, or if you would like to be praying for others, come join us.
-Community Ash Wednesday Worship, 7:00 PM at Advent. We will gather with our siblings from Lake Ann United Methodist church for a service of prayer and the imposition of ashes. This year we will host the service and Pastor Josh from LAUMC will preach.
