This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the season of Lent.  Lent is the season to observe and commemorate the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the son of God, our Savior and Redeemer. It is an opportune time to reflect on what it means to be a follower of Christ.  Many Christians kick off the season with a time of prayer and repentance on Ash Wednesday followed by receiving ashes in the sign of a cross on the forehead.  If you or your children want to receive ashes this Wednesday, Pastor Leland will be in the sanctuary before school from 7:45-8:30am.  You can also consider if there is something you could “give up” for the next forty days leading up to Easter as a way to remind you of Christ’s sacrifice for us.  What a blessing it is to be a part of a Christian community!

Go Conquerors!!!
