Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent and occurs forty-six days before Easter.
According to Matthew, Mark, and Luke; Jesus spent forty days fasting in the desert, where he endured temptation by Satan . Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of this forty day liturgical period of prayer and fasting or abstinence.
Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of adherents as a celebration and reminder of human mortality , and as a sign of mourning and repentance to God . The ashes used are typically gathered from the burning of the palms from the previous year's Palm Sunday.

LOOKING AHEAD TO HOLY WEEK
Interested church members are invited/encouraged/urged to join a team that will form in early March to plan the details of our Holy Week services, including Easter Sunday.
We are taking seriously the meaning of the word "liturgy", which means the work of the people. Part of the Lenten journey for team members will be shaping a Holy Week that is meaningful and memorable for our church and our community. Interested persons can contact Jimmy Moor.

Wednesday Night Suppers
will return in January
Supper time is from 5-6:30 pm in the Activities Center. This year, we are using a catering service so reservations are required. You may register one of two ways:
- Make a standing reservation for a season (first season ends December 4) or
- Make your reservation week by week.
Reservations should be made by 4:30 pm on the Monday before the supper by contacting Sarah Cann in the church office at 678-325-4025 or email@example.com
Because our meals are being catered, persons who show up without a reservation cannot be guaranteed a meal and will need to wait until reservations are honored to see if food is available. A reservation MUST BE HONORED either by attending, by cancelling by the same Monday deadline or by paying if you do not eat or cancel. We have to pay for all reservations.
Children - age three and under eat FREE
Children - 5th grade and under - $3
Adults – includes 6th grade and up - $6
We look forward to having supper with you!
Wednesday Night Supper Drivers Needed
As part of the Family Night Supper program, a cadre of volunteers delivers meals to persons in our community who are homebound. Last year, this dedicated group delivered over 350 meals. We are in need of drivers on Wednesday night to deliver the meals. It only requires a little of your time each week to deliver to one house and put a smile on someone’s face. Also, if you know of a church member or someone in our community that is homebound and would like a meal delivered to their door on Wednesday evenings, contact Linda Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are no requirements for the free meal; the person(s) can be homebound because of illness, age or other reason. It can be a short term or a long-term situation. We refuse no one.
