Ash Wednesday


Grace UMC will observe the start of Lent in a variety of different ways on Ash Wednesday, March 6. 

Ashes to Go for Commuters will be offered by Pastor Daniel at the Naperville Train Station from 7 a.m. - 8 a.m. 

Imposition of Ashes will be offered from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Sanctuary. This is an informal time to receive ashes with reflection and prayer. All are invited to come and go as you please.

Our 5 p.m. family service will feature the children’s choir, a teaching time with Pastor Daniel, and the imposition of ashes. Children will be offered a small seed to take home, water, and watch grow during Lent as a reminder of God’s nurturing love. 

Our 7 p.m. traditional service with a Lenten message from Pastor Cindy followed by the imposition of ashes, Holy Communion and music led by the Chancel Choir.
