About Ash Wednesday and Lent
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.
Ash Wednesday emphasizes two themes: our sinfulness before God and our human mortality. The service focuses on both themes, helping us to realize that both have been triumphed through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We will have our first Outdoor Worship Service this Sunday July 5, at 9:00 am.
Please bring your own lawn chairs. We will social distance from each other at least 6 feet. Families may sit together. Wearing a mask is requested due to the State Mandate. If not, we ask you to distance further than 6 feet. If you do not have a mask, one will be available.
Seating will be behind the church, marked with orange cones. Parking will be in the lot outside Pastor John’s office and you can walk thru the connecting overhang.
One external door will be propped open to enter the KCLC for restroom use in emergencies. Bathroom doors will be propped open to keep touching surfaces to a minimum. Only one person in the restroom at a time please. Be courteous and go before you come!
This process is new to all of us, so please be patient and we’ll get this thing figured out.
Our Father who art in Heaven. Hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil, for Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever and ever.
Let’s all pray together. The power of prayer is amazing!
I pray that all my family and friends are kept safe in these very scary times. Also watch over health care workers as they work tirelessly to protect their patients. AMEN
