Bear Creek is offering 3 ways of celebrating Ash Wednesday this year!
(1) 11:30 a.m. to 6 pm. Come as you are prayer and repentance. Pastor Brook will be available in the sanctuary for prayer/personal conversation/ and a personal imposition of the ashes. There will also be a personal reflection card to help you with some silent reflection during this time. You are welcome to drop in at any time during this time space. This could take as little as 5 minutes to as long as you want.
(2) 6:30 Traditional Ash Wednesday Worship Service. Come celebrate the beginning of Lent together as we gather in our celebration space and turn to God via songs and hymns, scripture, and ashes. The service will end with the traditional imposition of the ashes.
(3) 8 pm Labyrinth and Fire! Pastor Brook has found a need in his own life for a different way to worship. On Ash Wednesday he is going to try something new called Labryinth and Fire! This will be a experience of contemplative worship meant to center and inspire. Expect guitar music (Taize style), a “take your shoes off and get comfortable attitude,” and some practicing of spiritual practices that help us center our lives so that we can listen to where God is leading us.
