Ash Wednesday Service in Conyers GA

Ash Wednesday conyers ga

Begin the journey to Easter with a family-friendly Ash Wednesday service for youth (6th-12th grade) and adults.

During the service we’ll share in prayer, in hearing God’s word from the Bible, have a brief devotional, and have a time of meditation and reflection in which you can receive the mark of a cross in ashes on your forehead or hand.

 
 

Ash Wednesday & Valentine's Children's Activities

Children are invited to the Kid’s Valentine’s Party from 6:45-7:30 PM while adults and youth are in the Ash Wednesday service. They will have a light dinner, games, and music.

Prior to the party, any children or volunteers who would like to receive ashes are invited to come to the sanctuary between 6:30 and 6:45.

What is an Ash Wednesday Service?

Ash Wednesday is the first day of the traditional church season of Lent. This day is named after the practice of meeting for a church service which features the symbol of Ashes put on the forehead in the shape of a cross.  This year, Ash Wednesday falls on February 14.

The ashes typically represent our awareness of sin and death and turning to God in repentance and trust. Each year, we create our ashes from the Palms left over from last year’s Palm Sunday service.

Lent: the Journey to Easter

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent and kicks off our metaphorical journey with Christ to the cross and the resurrection. 

Lent is a season of preparation and reflection. It is a season where we choose to face some hard truths. We face the reality of sin, death, and our own weakness.  These topics alone could easily become scary and gloomy. In fact, we usually run away from these topics. As Christians we can face them with confidence because we know that Christ has defeated sin and death.

 

"Giving Something Up" for Lent

People customarily fast during lent. This has morphed away from just fasting by not eating meat or foods to the broader fasts of giving up something for Lent. Some people have turned towards giving up sweets or cola, giving up media or internet habits, or giving up using certain words or phrases.

It’s important to remember the point of fasting isn’t what you don’t do, it’s how fasting can change your attitude towards God.  In giving up food or something else we allow ourselves to be more aware of our own neediness and use this to inspire us to turn more frequently to God during this time of fasting.
