First Pres events are a great way to celebrate, journey and serve for all ages.
Take advantage of the many opportunities to participate in worship, education, mission, service and fun!
Ash Wednesday February 10
Quiet prayer and imposition of ashes from 7:30 - 8:30 a.m.
Ash Wednesday Worship Service at 7:00 p.m.
Marking the beginning of the Lenten season, this is an opportunity to gather for prayer, confession, and worship as we resolve to turn from our sins and turn to Christ as our Savior. As we remind one another of our frailty and need for forgiveness, we will receive the sign of the ashes, a practice which serves as an outward manifestation of an inner posture of repentance and faithfulness.

6:30 - 7:15 p.m - Food and Fellowship in Stewart Hall
7:15 - 7:45 p.m - Worship
