Join us on for a special Ash Wednesday service on Facebook Live and Zoom. Ashes are available for pick up ahead of time to use during this livestream service. In accordance with COVID protocols, SUMC members will be mailed an individual portion of ashes to place on their own foreheads and/or the foreheads of members of their household. An alternative is to mark the backs of people’s hands.
Ashes can be messy. Cotton swabs can be used. Do not mix with water. If you do not have ashes, you can create note or art piece at home that represents obstacles that block your relationship with Jesus. Mark your notes or art with the shape of a cross in a spirit of humility and sacrifice.
