The first day of Lent is marked with a special worship service starting at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. The goal of the day is to reflect upon our humanness, our need for forgiveness, and our connection to Christ’s last days. These themes are symbolized by the imposition of ashes on the forehead, with the words, “You are dust and to dust you shall return…” during the worship service. We invite you to come, see, and experience a powerful time of worship, song, light, darkness, and exploring the spiritual life. In addition, we will take a special offering to support the Ballston Area Clergy Fund to assist needy families in our community.
