Lent Begins This Week

Dear Friends,
 
    Ash Wednesday will soon be upon us.  For many of us, this is a tradition that we have participated in for many years while for others this may be very new.  In short, Ash Wednesday is the day that we begin the season of Lent, days of prayer, repentance, remembrance of baptismal promises, for some, preparation to be baptized, and the celebration of Easter.  Ash Wednesday symbolizes our acknowledgement that without God we are nothing and that our very life comes from God.  Recalling themes from the beginning of the book of Genesis, we hear the refrain, "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."  This is a time of contemplation and prayer.  We hope that you will be able to join us for worship on Ash Wednesday and throughout the Lenten season as we remember who we are and whose we are. 
 
Ash Wednesday Noontime Devotion - a brief service of scripture, reflection, confession, and imposition of ashes.  
 
7:30 PM - Worship with Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion - including music from our choir and liturgy to prepare us for the 40 days ahead.
 
See you in church!
 
Peace,
 
Pastor Mueller
