Please join us for one of our Ash Wednesday services at Ellen Dorsett's Pavilion. We will have a time of fellowship, communion, and the imposition of ashes. We ask that you practice social distancing and masks are required. We look forward to seeing you.
Lyrics from the Faith We Sing Hymnal
"Sunday's Palms are Wednesday's Ashes"
Sunday’s palms are Wednesday’s ashes as another Lent begins; thus we kneel before our Maker in contrition for our sins. We have marred baptismal pledges, in rebellion gone astray; now, returning, seek forgiveness; grant us pardon, God, this day!
We have failed to love our neighbors, their offenses to forgive, have not listened to their troubles, nor have cared just how they live, we are jealous, proud, impatient, loving over-much our things; may the yielding of our failings be our Lenten offerings.
We are hasty to judge others, blind to proof of human need; and our lack of understanding demonstrates our inner greed; we have wasted earth’s resources; want and suffering we’ve ignored; come and cleanse us, then restore us; make new hearts within us, Lord!
