Interprovincial Ash Wednesday Service, Wednesday, Feb. 17

Join us for an Interprovincial Ash Wednesday Service that begins our Lenten time of preparation and reflection. This worship service will invite you to consider making a Lenten commitment and to remember the promise of baptism.  As we approach one-year living through this pandemic, we choose to focus on God’s movement in us that helps us to grow and be prepared for new life through the power of the resurrection.

This worship opportunity will be led the Rev. Beth Rohn-Habegger of Wisconsin Rapids, Wis., who will be joined by pastors from both the Northern and Southern Provinces throughout the service.

In preparation for the service, please prepare a small bowl or cup of water, and think about what kind of commitment you would like to make as part of your observance of Lent. For example, your commitment might be to call a friend each week, or write notes to people who are living in care facilities, or add 10 minutes to your devotional time each day. There will be an opportunity to share our commitments with each other and to use the water as a reminder of the Grace of God especially as it connects to the practice of baptism.

Even as we are distanced from one another we can come together to remember God’s presence with us and the practices of faith that have long helped followers of Jesus along the Way.
