Ash Wednesday

Lent Begins at La Jolla Community Church

February 14 – Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the 40-day period called Lent prior to Easter. It’s been an important date for centuries of Christ followers to pause their normal lives and contemplate their lives with God. Join us on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, for an intimate and reflective service with Communion and the imposition of ashes from 6:30-7:00 pm. Youth in High School and Junior High will attend the Ash Wednesday service and then attend their regularly scheduled programs.

Childcare for infants through 5th Grade

If your family is joining us for the Ash Wednesday service on February 14th from 6:30-7:00 pm, we will provide childcare for infants through 5th graders. Elementary kids are welcome to join the service and discover the purpose of the season of Lent that Ash Wednesday signifies, but childcare is open to all ages if that’s what you prefer.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, we want to give parents an opportunity to go on a date night. For those who RSVP by email and pay $5, we will extend childcare to 9:00 pm! Leave your kids with us and invest in your marriage or take the night off! The cost includes dinner for children. Please RSVP for the Parent’s Night Out by emailing Ryana Contreras. Parent’s Night Out for infants-fifth grade takes place in Room 2

If you are only attending the Ash Wednesday service, childcare from 6:30-7:00 pm is available at no charge and it is not required for you to RSVP.
