Ash Wednesday Service and Dinner

Please join us for a "family friendly" service in the Sanctuary at 6:30p.m. followed by a Lenten Supper for the entire family. Soup, salad, and bread will be served in the fellowship hall. For the little ones we have macaroni and cheese and "pigs in a blanket". Based on Isaiah 58: 1-12, the service will include art, motions, visuals, and a few surprises. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, where you will receive, if you wish, a sign of the cross on your forehead.
