Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. Ashes are imposed at the two worship services in the Sanctuary and at our morning prayer service in FE 100 at 7 a.m. Our Drive-Thru prayer team will also impose ashes for those driving by in the parking lot between 7 and 9 a.m. We serve a light lunch after the noon service and dinner before the evening service in FE 200.

Prayer walking is exactly what it sounds like: walking while praying. Ordinary Christ-followers step into their streets to pray for their neighbors. Prayer walking is walking through a part of the city where you live, praying with your eyes open to real needs and hearts open to the prompting of God’s Spirit. It’s noticing signs of hope and signs of need as God asks you to be attentive to both.
