Ash Wednesday – 7:30pm
The Christian season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14, and Knox will be holding an Ash Wednesday worship service at 7:30 p.m. Ash Wednesday is an ancient holy day in the Christian church calendar. It marks the beginning of a six week journey with Jesus to his cross and resurrection, celebrated on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.The first step of this Lenten journey invites us to acknowledge our mortality and our sinfulness. by using the centuries-old symbol of ashes. During the Ash Wednesday service, each worshipper is invited to come forward to receive a mark of ashes that are imposed on the forehead in the sign of a cross.
In the Ash Wednesday service we are reminded of our mortality, we confess our sins, and we experience forgiveness through Christ’s death and resurrection. All our welcome to this service of song, confession, prayer and scripture.
A church family for you in the city.
