Join us in the Sanctuary for our Ash Wednesday Service. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is a time when we prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation, and spiritual discipline.
Ash Wednesday emphasizes two themes: our sinfulness before God and our human mortality. The service focuses on both themes, helping us to realize that both have been triumphed through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Our Pastors will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers. The ash cross on the forehead is an outward sign of our sorrow and repentance for sins.
What We Learned
KIDS FIRST Serves
Each month on third Friday, KIDS FIRST will perform a service project for our community followed by open gym time in the Christian Life Center. Our goal is to build lasting friendships among our children and help create a serving heart.
Last Friday, KIDS FIRST collected and packaged 114 hygiene kits for the homeless. These kits will accompany our Adult Life Group as they serve the homeless in the Norris Park area of Memphis next month.
