Tonight at 7pm we will be live-streaming our Ash Wednesday worship service. While we are not able to be in an intimate setting together to begin the Lenten Season - we encourage you to be part of this worship when we remind ourselves whose child we are.
Lent is the forty days of preparation between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday when we reach the victory of the resurrection. Today we begin an inward, spiritual inventory by professing our devotion to God and acknowledging our sins. Ashes are used to symbolize both death and repentance.
" .... for dust you are and to dust you shall return." (Genesis 3:19).
The forty days of Lent represent the time Jesus spent in the wilderness being tempted by Satan and preparing to begin his ministry. (Matthew 4:1-11). As we move into this 40 days, how will we prepare our minds, bodies and spirits for our personal ministries?
Epworth is offering several outreach opportunities to keep us focused on the needs of others during Lent. We also have a few spiritual disciplines that can be implemented to help us be more attune to God. Visit our website at epworthnc.com for more information on how you can participate. You can also find information in our weekly E-blast.
