February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
The Lenten journey from the ashes of death to the resurrected life begins on the first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday, which signifies a time to turn around, to change directions, to repent. This first day of Lent reminds us that unless we are willing to die to our old selves, we cannot be raised to new life with Christ. The first step is to confront and acknowledge our mortality. In many traditions this is symbolized through the imposition of ashes – placing the sign of the cross on one’s forehead. We are to remember that we are temporary creatures, always on the edge of death. Please join us at Old Bergen Church for our Ash Wednesday Service February 26th at 7:00 PM.
