Ash Wednesday Service – Feb 26th
Join us for our Ash Wednesday worship service this Wednesday, February 26th at 5:30 p.m. at Hope UMC in Pocahontas.
Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection. We look forward to worshipping with you on Wednesday.
