Ash Wednesday

service planned

Dresden First United Methodist Church will be hosting a special service to observe the beginning of Lent at 7 p.m. on Wednesday March 9. Lent is the season leading up to Easter when we pause to reflect on who we are and who God is through reflection, repentance, prayer and self-denial. By understanding Jesus’ journey into the wilderness we can most fully appreciate the true meaning Easter and the resurrection. Pastor Mark Earheart and the entire church family invite everyone regardless of religious preference to join us for this worship service to acknowledge our humanity and God’s grace. For more information, please call 364-2419.
