Event Details

Please join us 7:30PM this Wednesday as we celebrate the beginning of the Season of Lent.


Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Ash Wednesday emphasizes a dual encounter: we confront our own mortality and confess our sin before God; we focus on the dual themes of sin and death in the light of God’s redeeming love in Jesus Christ.

 

The service will include imposition of ashes and also the celebration of Holy Communion. We will also hear the witness from one of the churches who recently returned from a mission trip in Central America. Come join with us as the churches of Berwyn UMC and Paoli join together and extend welcome to all in our area.  Childcare is provided, and we are handicapped accessible. Ours is an open communion table where all our welcome.
