Ashes and a Blessing on the Corner

10:00-11:30am – Pastor Darren will be offering ashes and a blessing as an outreach to the Highlands and all who pass by that day.

Noon Ash Wednesday Service and Soup Lunch

Noon – Join us in the St. Paul Sanctuary for a brief service, including a pastoral meditation, music, and imposition of ashes. All are invited to a light soup lunch in McAdams Hall following the service.

Evening Ash Wednesday Service

7:00pm – This service marks the beginning of Lent, a time of reflection leading up to Holy Week and Easter, during which we focus on the sacrifice of Christ and our response to that sacrifice. Our evening service features music by one of our children’s choirs, a pastoral message, and imposition of the ashes. It will conclude with a fire pit where we offer to God those things that are hindering us and barriers to our spiritual growth.
