Ash Wednesday Prayer Event

Join us for our ASH WEDNESDAY PRAYER EVENT, March 6, from 12:00 noon - 8:00 p.m. Bring your families and invite friends to visit our prayer stations throughout the day. We will be focusing on Jesus in the Wilderness with scripture, prayer, music, art, and resources to take you through Lent.


Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 Days of preparation leading up to Easter. The example of Jesus in the wilderness for 40 days is a common theme during Lent. In biblical times, people covered their heads with ashes or wore sackcloth (like burlap) as a sign of repentance - of being sorry for things they had done wrong. Traditionally, on Ash Wednesday, Christians have marked a cross with ashes on their foreheads. This is practiced in many churches today. it is a sign of wanting to turn away from sin. It is also a sign that life will end, and that our lives are in God's hands.


In the 1st 3 centuries of Christian experience, preparation for Easter varied from 1 - 2 days to at most a week. The 1st reference to "Lent as 40 Days of Preparation" was at the First Council of Nicaea in AD 325. By the end of the 4th century, 40 Days of Lent was established in the Roman Catholic church. Now, many Protestant churches also observe Lent, and other dates in the Christian calendar to help Christians intentionally reflect on the life of Jesus and to respond in needed ways to His love and sacrifice.

For more information, contact Jesse Hill (worship arts pastor), Jan Mutter (family life pastor), or Val Harvey (contemplative prayer).

Three seasons at Actor's Theatre of Louisville saw him in roles as diverse as D'Artagnan in The Three Musketeers, Carl the homeless psychotic in Holy Ghosts, and Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream.
