Drive-through Ashes on Ash Wednesday

You are invited to come to the church campus during three one-hour timeframes on Ash Wednesday to either pick up a simple kit that will allow you to impose ashes at home as a part of our online worship, or receive ashes on your forehead or hand directly from one of the pastors.

Pastors will be  available outside from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m., noon - 1:00 p.m., and 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. Please enter the Sanctuary parking lot from Radnor Street. If you want to receive ashes from a pastor, please park behind the Chapel and walk up to the main Chapel entrance. If you would like a kit, drive up to the Chapel entrance. All participants need to practice social distancing and wear a mask.
