A close up of a man

Welcome to Ash Wednesday Worship on Wed, Feb 14 at 7 p.m.

Our Lenten journey begins with Ash Wednesday on February 14th, 2024, a day we hear both that we are loved and that we are dust. The cross made on our foreheads with oil in Holy Baptism is retraced with ashes, a reminder that we are dust and to dust we shall return. Ash Wednesday’s scripture calls us to genuine faith practices of generosity, prayer, and fasting. In response, many Christians choose a Lenten practice—either to give up something or to add something that enriches their lives of faith during the 40 days of Lent.

For those who embrace a Lenten practice, we suggest two:

Esperanza’s Mid-Week Lenten Practice: Each Wednesday beginning February 21st through March 20th, Esperanza will have a Soup & Salad supper at 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall, a discernment gathering with centering prayer at 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary, and then worship at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary.

This service will be live-streamed and can be accessed by visiting our Worship Page.
