Ash Wednesday holds significant importance in the Christian faith, it serves as a reminder for believers to acknowledge their sins and recognize their need for God. The service is a time of worship and reflection, allowing individuals to engage in introspection and repentance. “The imposition of ashes” is a symbolic act that involves the marking of a cross on the forehead with ashes, representing repentance and grief for one’s sins. It serves as a visible sign of humility and a reminder of our mortality. Coming together as a church family on Ash Wednesday allows believers to collectively embark on a spiritual journey towards the cross. It provides an opportunity for communal support and encouragement as individuals reflect on their relationship with God and strive for personal growth. All are welcome to attend and service will be about 30 minutes. Colonialkc.org. 816-942-3272.
