Genesis Health Care Center – All are welcome to join us at 3:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month for worship and Holy Communion at Genesis Health Care Center in La Plata, MD.
Ash Wednesday – Ash Wednesday is a holy day in the church year. It marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Since the earliest days of the Christian faith, Christians have gathered on Ash Wednesday to acknowledge our sins, ask for God’s forgiveness, and recommit to following Jesus more faithfully. Ash Wednesday takes its name from the ancient Christian practice of receiving ashes in the sign of the cross on the forehead. These ashes remind us of our mortality and dependence on God. As noted in the Bible, “You are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Please join us for worship on Ash Wednesday (March 1st) at 12 p.m. or 7 p.m.
Lent – Lent is the season of the church year that spans approximately six weeks before Easter. It is a time of preparation for Easter – the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection. During the season of Lent, Christians focus on deepening our relationship with God through acknowledging our sins, focusing on prayer and Scripture reading, fasting, and acts of charity. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. To deepen our observance of Lent, midweek worship services will be offered at 6:30 p.m., on Wednesdays in the Lenten Season (March 8, 15, 22, 29 & April 5).
