February 14th is also Ash Wednesday this year. So grab your loved ones and come and have a soup and bread supper at 6:00 pm. The service follows at 7:00pm.
This is the beginning of Lent. For some, it is a time of fasting, of denying oneself of something. It is a time of repentance. We confess we are sinners and “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Hence the ashes.
This is also a time to increase our spirituality, in preparation for the gift of Easter (No more sin and Eternal Life). See announcement of Lenten Bible Study in the carousel of the Home Page.
