Ash Wednesday & Mid-Week Worship

Join us for Ash Wednesday Worship on February 17 at noon and 7:30 p.m. in the Worship Center. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, the forty days preceding Easter. Our observance of Ash Wednesday includes receiving communion and the imposition of ashes on the forehead. Genesis 3:19 invites us into a penitential season with the words, “For you are dust and to dust you will return.”

Our sermon series on “The Lord’s Prayer” will begin at this service, and a Lenten Devotional written by people of Saint Matthew with a focus on the Lord’s Prayer will be available.

During Lent, we will have mid-week worship on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. in the Worship Center. Join us for a reflective and meditative worship incorporating the Taizé style which uses simple songs, scripture and prayer. Our first service will be February 25.
