Sackcloths for Ash Wed. Service

Pickup outside church doors. Sackcloth was a dark-colored material made of goat or camel hair. Wearing it became a sign of distress and repentance. We are using burlap as sackcloth for Ash Wednesday and the season of Lent.

Ash Wednesday Worship, Feb. 17

There will be two worship opportunities for worship:

  • 3PM Children & Family Worship* in the parking lot. This will be a short, 15-minute service aimed at elementary school-aged children.
  • 7:30PM Evening Worship* will be live-streamed. Look for the link in an eblast.

*Please pick up pieces of burlap from the tote outside the church building to serve as sackcloth for both Ash Wednesday services. Due to social distancing, we will not be having the imposition of ashes this year.
