This Wednesday February 14, 2018 is Ash Wednesday when the Church begins her slow and measured journey to the cross, where we see Jesus: the Savior who hangs- bloodied and scourged-for us. It is a time of reflection and repentance for me and also for you, for all of the Church throughout the world.

And yet in the midst of our dusty Lenten ashes, we also look forward to Easter, when our Lord is raised from the dead, triumphing over sin and Satan, all for us. Yes even during our Lenten fast, joy abound!

This Wednesday February 14 we will have the church open from 9 am to 3 pm for anyone who would like to receive the Imposition of Ashes. Also at 7 pm we will have a Ash Wednesday service. Everyone is invited to come and partake. Also following this Wednesday every Wednesday till Holy week we will have a meal at 6 pm followed with a Lenten service at 7 pm. Any questions concerning any of this please fill free to contact Pastor Gary Pippitt at 530-695-2311 or 530-713-4610 or at Grace Lutheran 530-846-4736.

We hope we will see you this Wednesday and the Wednesday’s to follow till March 21, 2018.

God’s Blessing to all of you as we begin our journey through this Lenten season.

Pastor Gary Pippitt
