Hosted by

Glen Leven Presbyterian Church

 

You are invited to join in this Interdenominational Ash Wednesday Worship Service that marks the start of the season of Lent.

 

Lent is a time to prepare for the celebration of our redemption through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus the Christ and to renew our life in the atoning mystery.

 

We begin our journey to Easter with the sign of ashes. This ancient sign speaks of the frailty of human life, and marks the penitence of the faith community. We thus begin this holy season by acknowledging our need for repentance, and for the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the Gospel of Jesus the Christ.

 

You are invited to observe a holy Lent by self-examination and penitence, by prayer and fasting, by works of love, and by reading and meditating on the Word of God.
