Bethlehem Lutheran Church will have a special guest speaker for our Ash Wednesday service today. Mike Holstad will be leading our service and kicking off Pastor Mark's sermon series "Places of the Passion." We will also have music provided by the very talented Rachel Faulkner! Join us for this special service to start the Lenten season. The service starts at 6:30 pm.
The service will be streamed for anyone joining at home. Those at home are encouraged to have soil or cooking oil to mark themselves during the distribution of ashes. We will also have Communion.
