Ash Wednesday

On one Wednesday each year, the church gathers to mark the beginning of the Season of Lent by placing ashes in the form of a cross on the forehead of each believer. This ‘dust and ashes’ is an ancient symbol of humanity and is a reminder that we are imperfect, fallible, and mortal. We begin the season of Lent in this way to remind us that this is a season of self-reflection and a time when we consider how well we have been representing Christ to the world. Please join us at Lakeway United Methodist Church for this powerful Ash Wednesday service, on Wednesday evening February 26, 2020 at 6:30 pm!
