Ash Wednesday worship will be at 6:30 p.m. on March 6. Imposition of ashes will be offered during worship. The youth and leaders preparing for this summer’s National Youth Gathering will be hosting a dinner of chili and cinnamon rolls (and hot dogs for kids who prefer them) before the service, starting at 5:30. Suggested offering for the meal is $5 per person, or $20 per family. This will help cover their costs at the gathering. Thanks to the Rolfs, Homps, and Berrys for organizing this meal. Stepping Stones and FaithInk will not be meeting separately--we encourage families to attend the service together.
