Farewell to Alleluias

Shrove Tuesday

2/13/2018
6:30 PM

After pancakes (at 5:30) we will burn our palm fronds from last Palm Sunday, creating ashes. Bring your palms in, too, if you would like to add them to the fire. Then we will have a brief child and adult friendly service, saying farewell to the singing and saying of Alleluia for the season of Lent. The children play simple musical instruments, make some noise in church, and sing alleluias for a final time until Easter. Please join us for a time together of worship which will help our children, and all of us, understand why we do things the way we do during the Lenten season.
