Upper Lake United Methodist Church plans Feb. 14 Ash Wednesday service

UPPER LAKE, Calif. — Begin your journey to the Easter Resurrection with the Upper Lake Community United Methodist Church as they observe Ash Wednesday at the Feb. 14 service, which will include the Disposition of Ashes.

The service begins at 4:30 p.m. at the church, located on the corner of First Street and Clover Valley Road in the town of Upper Lake.

During the service Pastor Bob (Rev. C. R. Green) will mark the sign of the cross with ashes on the foreheads of those wishing to receive it.

The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Christian worship. The ash cross on the forehead is an outward sign of our sorrow and repentance for sins.

The church’s annual prayer vigil will run from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 14 and the service will start promptly at 4:30 p.m.

Ash Wednesday is the start of the Lenten season; you are welcome to join church members on their Lenten journey through Easter.

Worship services are Sunday at 11 a.m.

The church’s motto is “Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors.” All are welcome.
