The season of Lent invites us to embrace our faith journey by reflecting upon and deepening our relationship with God.  As Lent occurs on the cusp of springtime, our Lenten theme draws upon the springtime gardening activities of preparing, planting, pruning, and cultivating – words that also speak to important activities in our relationship with God and with others.  We encourage you to make this season of Lent a time when you intentionally plant the seeds for a more fulfilling life with God and others through the simple expressions of love, gratitude and forgiveness.

EBPC Ash Wednesday Offerings
 Something for Everyone!

Join us Morning and Evening
Wednesday, Feb. 10

WEDNESDAY MORNING

WHAT: Drive Thru Ashes

WHO:   EBPC church members and Pastor John will be offering ashes to drivers who pull into our parking lot from the Concord Road entrance.

WHEN:  Ash Wednesday, Feb. 10 from 7 to 8:00 a.m. and at 9:00 am for preschool drop off.

WHY:  We are going to the street corner because we need to be reminded of the promises of God: that we are his and there is no sin or darkness that can keep us separated from him and his love. Christ is with us! We will be there in rain, sleet or snow!

YOU:  Our church members will offer ashes to all drivers. For those who drive thru and receive ashes, you will be given a CD or connected to our podcast so as you drive you can hear music and reflections on the significance of Ash Wednesday and be reminded that you aren’t ultimately in charge of your lives, God is, and that’s good news.
