Ash Wednesday Service

17 Feb 2021 | 06:00 pm - 07:00 pm

Join us online for either of our two Ash Wednesday worship services as we begin the Lenten journey towards Easter.

Ash Wednesday is a day of repentance, but it is also a call to reflection, meditation, prayer, and preparation.  We prepare and turn toward God, so that we are ready for the renewal that awaits us in Easter.  It is the prayer of the Psalmist that puts our wish to words: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me” (Psalm 51:10).

After the services (at noon and 7 pm), the pastors will be available in the Clinton Street parking lot for those who wish to receive ashes on their forehead (or wrist) with the sign of the cross.

The service will stream on our Facebook page (First Presbyterian Church of Grand Haven), and will also be emailed to those for whom we have addresses.
