Ash Wednesday – 2024

Date: February 14, 2024
Key Speaker: Pastor Dan Gerrietts
Season: Lent
Series: Lent 2024 - Figuring Out Faith with Peter

Jesus’ most famous disciples. In Peter, we see a person who is both steadfast and unsteady, a dear friend and a betrayer, a follower and a wanderer. In Peter, we often see ourselves – a very normal human trying to figure it all out—just like us. Looking at Peter’s faith journey, the lyrics of “Come Thou Fount” came to mind. It’s as if Peter himself wrote this song. And so, as we follow Peter’s story, we will sing our way through Lent, binding our wandering hearts to God. Ash Wednesday is about the heart – our heart and God’s heart for us. On Ash Wednesday, we acknowledge the brokenness in our hearts due to missteps, mishaps, and painful endings. We also celebrate the remarkable grace of the God who, through Jesus, replaces our broken hearts with a heart of new life, hope, and rebirth.
