Seven years ago, we began offering Ashes on the Way so that anyone – be they church members, friends, or the public at large – could receive ashes and a blessing in a simple, accessible way. It quickly became a deeply appreciated tradition.
Here’s how it works: Drive into the church parking lot anytime between 6 and 10 A.M., enter the roundabout, stop curbside, and one of our pastors will meet you at your car to mark your forehead with ashes and to offer a personalized prayer. If you do not wish to receive ashes, you may simply ask for a prayer. Ashes on the Way is a poignant and powerful start to Lent.
Or you can join us at 7:00 PM for a short Ash Wednesday worship service, where you can receive ashes.
