March 2 | Ash Wednesday — It’s Never Too Late

Feb 24, 2022 | Worship

You are invited into this worship experience on Ash Wednesday, March 2.

Traditionally we burn the palms from the previous Palm Sunday to create ashes for Ash Wednesday. We wear these ashes to be reminded of our own mortality and to make a commitment to journey with Christ through the peaks and valleys of this Lenten season.  Having just concluded a series about our shared commitments, Scott Bach-Hansen’s message for this service, based on 2 Corinthians 5:13 – 6:2, reminds us that it is never too late to commit to live the teachings of Jesus.

The service will be held at 7 pm in Doe Fellowship Hall. All are invited to join in-person or on YouTube or on herndonumc.org.

If you choose to worship at home, there will be ashes available for pickup beginning after worship this Sunday (2/27), and from the office (9:00am – 4:00pm) or in the entry near the Fellowship Hall (5:30 – 7:30pm) on Monday through Wednesday. If you need assistance getting the ashes, please email office@herndonumc.org.

No matter where you worship from, you are encouraged to add your voice to prayers and songs and stand as you are able.  There is a Bulletin to help you experience worship.  It includes links and information to help you be connected at Herndon UMC along with the order of worship.

Nursery care is available for infants and young children during this worship service.  If you have questions about the Nursery, contact mallory@herndonumc.org.

As always, we want to stay connected and are a community of prayer.  Glory sightings and prayer concerns may be shared by text, in the chat, through this online form, or at any time by email to prayerchain@herndonumc.org.

If you are new or looking to get more connected or learn more about Herndon UMC, please email welcome@herndonumc.org or complete this online form.  You are welcome here and we would love to grow in a Spirit-filled relationship with you.
