Lent Begins on February 14, 2018 with an Ash Wednesday Service

How will you prepare for Resurrection Sunday?

Charleston Presbyterian Church will have an Ash Wednesday Service on February 14, 2018 at 7:00PM.

Lent is a time to prepare for the celebration of Easter and to renew our life in the saving death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  We begin this holy season by acknowledging our need for repentance, and for the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We begin our journey to Easter with the sign of ashes, a Biblical symbol of mourning and penitence.  This ancient sign speaks of the fragility of human life, and marks the penitence of the community of faith.  We invite you, therefore, in the name of Christ, to observe a holy Lent by self-examination and repentance, by prayer and fasting, by works of love, and by reading and meditating on the Word of God, beginning with the Ash Wednesday service.

Bring your whole family.  We will have a nursery available.  Let’s begin this 40 day journey of Lent together.  Everyone will have the opportunity to come forward to receive the sign of repentance in ashes upon the back of the hand or forehead.  May we gather for the worship of our Savior and Lord and to dedicate our lives to Him!
