Easter at PLC

Ash Wednesday
Ash Wednesday will be celebrated on February 22, at Peace Lutheran at 7 p.m. with Pastor Kevin Nelson
leading the service and with the traditional placement of the symbol of the cross on participants forehead.

The ashes used come from the ashes of a palm tree burned on Palm Sunday of the year before.
Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a

40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration.

The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where

Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional

season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection.

Lent Services and Fellowship
We will again gather every Wednesday evening during Lent to share a Soup and Sandwich fellowship meal prior to our Wednesday evening Lent Service. We will gather at 5:45 p.m. and start serving at 6 p.m. with the goal of being done serving at 6:45 p.m. The confirmation students will be serving and cleaning up. The Lent service will begin at 7 p.m. (students will be expected to attend). Please SIGN UP to bring a soup and sandwich or whatever you want to bring to share. This year’s dates are: March 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29. Free will offering will be taken, with proceeds going purchase kitchen paper products.
