Ash Wednesday, the day that marks the beginning of Lent, is coming up on March 1st. WUMC will host two opportunities to worship and begin Lent together with the imposition of ashes.
Ashes-to-Go will be available during the day at 12:00PM. Come during your lunch break or in the midst of your day to receive ashes and meditate on the beginning of the Lenten season.
A fuller worship service will take place at 7:30PM. We will sing, pray, reflect, and receive ashes together at a short service.
