Ash Wednesday: February 17, 2021

Ash Wednesday, which falls on February 17th this year, is the traditional beginning of the ancient Christian season of Lent, the six-week period leading to Easter. Ash Wednesday emphasizes Christian repentance, the setting aside of the old self, and the placing on of the new behaviors in Christ. As a part of those new behaviors Christians have placed a special emphasis on renewing practices of prayer, bible study, and Christian living. It is a period of preparation. Like many churches, PCPC will hold Ash Wednesday services.

6am Virtual Service

PCPC will post a short online service at 6am on Ash Wednesday. This service will include music, scripture reading, prayer, and a reflection on the imposition of ashes. You can find the posting on our Facebook page, our YouTube channel, or palmaceia.org/videos.

Noon Midday Service (Sign up here)

This in-person worship service in the Sanctuary will center around the traditional scripture readings and prayers for the day. The imposition of ashes (an ancient symbol of repentance, sorrow, and sacrifice) will be available for those who desire. Reserve a spot to attend this service here.

5-7pm: An Ash Wednesday Church Campus Pilgrimage (Sign up here)

This year on Ash Wednesday, we will offer an in-person, interactive service from 5-7pm on PCPC’s campus. The service will act as a journey in worship as we begin our journey through Lent, and will take about 30 minutes to complete. 

All of the elements of an Ash Wednesday service will be present during our walk-through worship, and it will conclude with the imposition of ashes. This service is a great opportunity for people of all ages to reflect on scripture, tangibly interact with their faith, and contemplate the liturgical season of Lent. 

While this service is completely outdoors, we still ask participants to wear masks and to adhere to the social distancing parameters in place.

6:00pm: Ash Wednesday Service via Zoom with Mike Peacock, Pastor for Bel-Mar, and Rick McClintock
