Redeemer's Ash Wednesday service, marking the start of our Lenten season, will be Wednesday, February 10th 6:30-8. Ash Wednesday is recognized in many churches, but if you grew up in a tradition that did not recognize it, you're not alone. Our Ash Wednesday service will be a solemn and reflective service as we begin the process of preparing our hearts for Good Friday and Easter. The season of Lent (46 days in all - 40 weekdays and 6 Sundays) is spent practicing repentance and self-denial in order to help us meditate on the death and resurrection of Jesus.
We want to encourage everyone in our congregation to come to this service. If you're new to the idea of Ash Wednesday, the service will feel different from a typical Sunday morning service, but it plays an important role in our Christian faith and is part of our Church Family's spiritual traditions.
