Ash Wednesday Service

Wednesday, February 14, 7pm, Sanctuary


Each year, Christians worldwide attend services on Ash Wednesday and receive the imposition of ashes. The marking of ashes in the shape of a cross on the foreheads of believers begins the forty-day journey of Lent leading to Easter.


 Nursery will be available for children 3 and under.

Prayer


Prayer Focus for February: Relationships with family and friends.


Christian Love is extended to Sonya Turner on the death of her stepfather, to Jane Jones on the death of her son / Lauren Biggerstaff on the death of her uncle and to the family of Dave Reynolds on his recent passing (Dave was the husband of member Wynelle Reynolds, father of member Susan Reynolds and grandfather of Samuel and Marina Reynolds. Dave is a retired Presbyterian minister).


We would be honored to pray for you or someone you know. We believe prayer is not just an important part, but the essential component in our practice as believers. If you have a request to be added to the list, email prayer@saxegotha.org.
