Ash Wednesday
Wednesday, February 14 | 7pm | Sanctuary
Participants in the Ash Wednesday Service will be invited to receive ashes in the shape of a cross on their foreheads. Ashes are a symbol of mortality and a sign of humility and repentance. We leave the service in gratitude that through the cross, Christ conquered death. Nothing can separate us from the love of God!

Stephen Ministry Lenten Devotional
Beginning Sunday, February 11, a new Stephen Ministry Lenten Devotional will be available in the Gathering Space or read it online here.

This compilation of devotionals for each day of Lent 2024 was lovingly and prayerfully written by FPC Stephen Ministers, both past and present. Through these writings, they share God’s love and the hope of the scriptures.

In observance of the Lenten Season, many people choose to “give up” something they enjoy as they enter a period of reflection. An alternative is to “give” to someone who needs what you take for granted. Please consider donating shelf stable items to The Pantry on Church. You and your family may: donate an item per day, as indicated below, one item per week, or have your children choose their favorite item to contribute. A flyer with weekly lists is available in the Gathering Space and online at fpcmarietta.org/lent.
