Drive Thru Ashes


We begin the season of Lent with a reminder of our mortality and our need for a Savior. Traditionally, a symbol of those reminders come in the form of ashes, in the shape of a cross, on our foreheads. It is a symbol of a mighty truth and in wearing our ashes, we become a living witness to that truth and to our faith. However, there are many who cannot attend our evening worship service to receive ashes. There are also many more who wish to be that living witness to all they encounter during the day. Therefore, this Ash Wednesday, La Plata UMC will be engaging in what is known as “Drive-Thru Ashes”. From 5:30 am until 9:15 am, Pastor Susan will be imposing Ashes for all those who would come and drive thru the parking lot.
