LUTHERANS OBSERVE ASH WEDNESDAY

Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Christian penitential season of Lent, will be commemorated at Grace Lutheran Church on Wed., February 14 with services and Holy Communion at 12:15 and 7:00 p.m.

For Christians, Ash Wednesday commemorates the beginning of the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the desert where he endured temptation by Satan. Lent is a time of preparation for Easter. Everyone is welcome at these services and those who believe that Holy Communion carries with it the forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are invited to share in this means of God's Grace.

Ashes were used in ancient times to express grief. Today,Christians continue the practice of using ashes as an external sign of repentance. At Grace Lutheran, those attending the service will be invited to receive the imposition of ashes from the burned palms of last year’s Palm Sunday, prior to receiving Holy Communion. For those who wish to receive ashes, the Pastors will apply them in the shape of the cross on the forehead of each worshipper. This serves to witness that all people are sinners in need of repentance and that through Jesus all sins are forgiven through faith.

Nursery care for children ages birth to 5 years old will be available during both services. Grace Lutheran Church is located at the corner of Sixth Avenue West and Blythe Street in Hendersonville. For further information call 828-693-4890.
