According to The Book of Worship, Ash Wednesday emphasizes a dual encounter: we confront our own mortality and confess our sin before God within the community of faith. The form and content of the service focuses on the dual themes of sin and death in the light of God’s redeeming love in Jesus Christ.

The Chino Valley United Methodist Church will hold an Ash Wednesday service, with imposition of ashes, on Wednesday, February 18, 2015, at 6:00 pm.
