Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday Service and Spaghetti Dinner

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. It derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of adherents as a sign of mourning and repentance to God.

Our Ash Wednesday service will begin at 7:00 pm with Soup and a Discussion online.

And Chuck Knows Church says…

Ever seen a little smudge mark on someone’s forehead as they walk out of church? That’s a sign of the cross and it means it’s Ash Wednesday during Lent. Chuck tells you about this important worship service:

Race to Nowhere ~ Feb. 8th at 7:00 pm

Race to Nowhere

Turning Point Youth Ministry presents: Race to Nowhere

Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried that students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids.

Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

All parents and youth are invited to a showing of this movie on February 8th at 7:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall.

A small panel discussion will immediately follow the film.
