First Church will be holding a service for Ash Wednesday on Wednesday, March 6th, at 7:00 pm.

The holy season of Lent is upon us. Lent represents the forty days of preparation between now and the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter Sunday. Historically, people who were preparing to be baptized went through lessons during the Lenten season. Now, people also use it as a time of personal sacrifice and learning so that they might live and love more like Jesus.  Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of this special season. The imposition of the ashes reminds us of our mortality and our need for God’s help as we enter the holy time. Join us to learn more about this season and explore your relationship with Jesus Christ.
