LentNewsVirtual Ash Wednesday


 

February 17, 6:30 Fellowship, 7:00 Worship; Zoom
Community UCC will be joining St. Paul’s Christian Church for Ash Wednesday. Our congregations have a long tradition of worshipping together and this year we will meet on Zoom. The meeting will begin at 6:30pm for those who’d like to enjoy casual conversation before the start of the service. Bring your dinner if you’d like. Worship will begin at 7:00pm.
Ash Wednesday is the day many Christians mark as the first day of Lent, a time of reflection and penitence leading up to Easter Sunday. The 40-day observance of Lent is supposed to mirror Jesus’ 40-day journey in the wilderness where he faced temptation and prevailed. Many people take on a new spiritual practice during Lent, or they try to give something up so that they can better focus on their relationship with God.
If you would like to join us, we’d be delighted to include you.  Contact Pastor Lacey at lacey.cucc@gmail.com for the Zoom information.  For members, a special email will be sent with the Zoom meeting information.
