Ash Wednesday Service

Ash Wednesday Service

Lent at House of Hope begins with the 7 p.m. worship service on Ash Wednesday, February 14. It includes Holy Communion, the imposition of ashes, and music by the House of Hope Motet Choir and Choir School.The season of Lent is a time of prayer, fasting, and self-examination in preparation for the celebration of the resurrection of the Lord at Easter. It is a period of 40 days—like the flood of Genesis, Moses’ sojourn at Mount Sinai, Elijah’s journey to Mount Moreb, Jonah’s call to Ninevah, and Jesus’ time of testing in the wilderness. All who put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ are welcome to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Elements served are bread and grape juice. Gluten-free wafers are available from the servers.
