Ash Wednesday Worship
February 17 @ 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm
Worship with us at 6 PM as we join the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) for a virtual Ash Wednesday service that features liturgy and music in English, Spanish, and Korean. The 40-minute pre-recorded service was filmed at the chapel in our denominational office in Louisville, Kentucky, and will be streamed on February 17 at 6:00 PM over Zoom and YouTube. After the service, we will gather in a separate Zoom gathering, as we do on Sunday mornings, for a Time of Prayer. The password for these Zoom gatherings is the same as our regular worship service.
The Rev. Dr. David Gambrell, associate for worship in the PC(USA)’s Office of Theology & Worship, who along with Dr. William McConnell, a Mission Engagement Advisor in the Presbyterian Mission Agency, prepared the service, said he’s confident that the service reflects the hope and promise of the gospel.
“In some ways, it feels as though we have been living in the season of Lent since March of 2020 — confronted with mortality through the COVID-19 pandemic, lamenting and repenting of the evils of racism, longing for reconciliation in a time of deep division,” said Gambrell. “Our prayer is that this online Ash Wednesday service will point to the hope and promise of the gospel through the cross of Jesus Christ. As the Ash Wednesday liturgy says, “God is our refuge and strength, a present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear ….”
