“…have you not read…the story about…?” (Mark 12:26)
STORIES OF GRACE TO TELL
Lenten devotionals told by members of the Grace community, along with a daily continuous reading of Mark’s entire gospel, will be provided via email. Each household will also receive the devotional, A Story to Tell, in the mail. These devotionals are partially funded by a grant from Interfaith Health at Fairview Health Services, which supports Faith Based Community Nursing in congregations, including Grace.

ASH WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17
A pre-recorded worship service will be available in the morning of Ash Wednesday. In following health guidelines during the pandemic, we will not have in-person Imposition of Ashes. These times require us to adapt and be resourceful. With that in mind we invite your participation:
- Have paper and pen/pencil on hand along with a bowl of water.
- Have a candle with a wick that has already been lit, but do not light for worship. The ash of the wick will be used to mark the sign of the cross on your forehead or the foreheads of those in your household.
- If you don’t have access to a candle have a face mask on hand with a black marker or pen. You will be invited to make the sign of the cross on your mask and then wear it. This personal protective equipment acknowledges our mortality and is a powerful sign of our interdependence in community, and our dependence upon God.
At 7:00 pm a shorter worship will be held via Zoom.
Please have the same items on hand as listed above.
Details for connecting at 7:00 pm on Ash Wednesday:
