Ash Wednesday Service
Wednesday, February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Maize Manor UMC will be observing Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent with a Traditional Service in the Sanctuary at 7:00 PM.
From the UM Discipleship Ministries Resources:
“Ash Wednesday emphasizes a dual encounter: we confront our own mortality and confess our sin before God within the community of faith. The form and content of the service focus on the dual themes of sin and death in the light of God’s redeeming love in Jesus Christ…The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship, and the Imposition of Ashes can be a powerful nonverbal and experiential way of participating in the call to repentance and reconciliation. “
