Ash Wednesday Service

February 26 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Ash Wednesday is February 26 at 7pm

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season, traditionally seen as 40 days of preparation before Easter. We read in the Gospels that Jesus turned his face towards Jerusalem, and he prepared himself and his followers for his death on the cross. In the same way during this Lenten season, we turn our own hearts towards the Cross so that we can fully embrace the power of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter. During this Ash Wednesday Prayer Service, we invite you to join us and begin this preparation journey with us through worship, guided prayer, and response stations.

Register to Attend

Ash Wednesday with Fairfax Kids—Elementary children are invited to attend their own Ash Wednesday experience in their familiar Fairfax Kids space.  They will participate in an evening of worship, guided prayer, and response stations as we prepare our hearts for the journey towards the Cross.  At the end of the service, parents can pick up their children to join them in receiving Ashes.  Childcare will be available for children 5 years old and younger.  Please register so we can best prepare for the evening.
