Ash Wednesday & Lent

Ash Wednesday & Lent


The symbol for the day is ashes, a reminder of the curse from Genesis 3: "For dust you are and to dust you shall return." During Ash Wednesday we remember that though we were made for life in a garden with God, we now live in a world broken by our own selfishness and sin. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a 40-day season of repentance and self-reflection in which we look toward Easter and long for God to come and make all things new.

But Ash Wednesday is more than just a day for mourning, it is a day in which we remembrer that, through Christ, we are forgiven and made new. Join us on February 26th as we reflect on and find hope in the promises of God in Jesus. 

Our service begins at 7:00pm here at Trinity Kimberly Way.

The imposition of ashes will take place before the service begins, from 6:45-7:00pm. So please arrive early to participate in this meaningful ritual.

At the heart of Lent is the journey of Jesus from Galilee to Jerusalem. The gospel writer Luke says that after his transfiguration, “Jesus set his face to go to Jerusalem” (Luke 9:51). Jesus knows that when he arrives he will face rejection, betrayal, torture, and execution. But he also knows that on the other side of the Cross is the Empty Tomb. 

In this series we are taking a look at the Psalms of Ascent, the songs that pilgrims would have sung on their way to Jerusalem, songs that Jesus himself would’ve know and probably sung as he drew ever nearer to completing his purposes. Not only do these Psalms help us to see Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection in a new light, they provide guidance for us as we follow in Jesus’ footsteps as his disciples.

Lenten midweek services begin on March 4th and start at 7:00pm.
