ASH WEDNESDAY at THE WELL
The Christian Church has certain rhythms on the liturgical calendar that happen annually, that as a church we desire to participate in. One of them being Lent.
What is Lent? Lent is the six week period leading up to Easter. It’s one of the most important times of year for many Christians around the world, held at a similar level of importance to Advent – the build up to Christmas.
Lent, always begins on a Wednesday. That day, is known as Ash Wednesday.
What is Ash Wednesday? Ash Wednesday comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. At The Well, our Pastor applies ashes to our heads as a reminder of our sin, while repeating the scripture Romans 6:23 “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is Eternal life through Jesus Christ.”
*Pastor Trey will administer ashes during this service and all are invited to accept the ashes as a visible symbol of penance. Even non-Christians are welcome to receive the ashes. The ashes are made from palm branches.
There will be a time of singing, prayer, short message and the administering of ashes. This is a rich and powerful service and we hope that you will attend.
When: Wednesday, March 6th at 7:00pm (7-8pm)
Where: The Well Church Keller (Party Room)
*All (including children) are welcomed.
