Bulletin for evening service

Midday Drive-Through Ashes: We will offer drive-through ashes from 11:15am-12:30pm in the small parking lot off Douglass Blvd. We invite you to stop by St. Paul to receive an individual container of ashes for your family, along with a blessing and a liturgy you can use to impose the ashes yourself. 

Evening Service with Ashes: At 7:00pm, we will offer a Facebook Live Ash Wednesday service with music and a message. The direct link to that service is:

Note: Our original plan was to have an outdoor service, but the inclement weather has caused us to cancel the in-person service in favor of an online-only service.

Due to Covid restrictions, pastors will not impose the ashes but will offer a blessing.
