Ash Wednesday Services

Wednesday, March 6

New Joy Lutheran will be offering two opportunities for you to worship on Ash Wednesday, March 6.

At our services, those who desire to receive ashes come forward and may stand/kneel. Ashes are applied with the minister's thumb in the form of a small cross on the forehead of each person with the words: "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."

The times available for the distribution of ashes include:

  • 10:30 am — Bible Study. We will begin with a short service and then you will receive ashes.
  • 7:00 pm — Ash Wednesday Worship. This is a full hour-long service where ashes will be distributed as part of the service.
