Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent.  Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.

Ash Wednesday emphasizes two themes: our sinfulness before God and our human mortality. The service focuses on both themes, helping us to realize that both have been triumphed through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

FPCP will join with the First United Methodist Church of Plymouth in a joint Ash Wednesday Service, which will be held at the Methodist Church on North Territorial.  We encourage all to attend this service as a way to begin the journey to Easter.
