Ash Wednesday | Special Service
February 22 | 7pm
Ash Wednesday is the traditional beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is the forty days leading up to Easter. Lent is meant to be a time of self-reflection, repentance for sin, fasting as a way to grow in spiritual hunger. We will be celebrating Ash Wednesday with several neighboring churches. The service will be hosted at New Brighton United Methodist
(1033 6th Ave, New Brighton, PA 15066)
Two of our dear members, Paul Vavro, and his wife Pam have been faithful in following God's call on their life. The Vavro's started a ministry called "Yard-Cross" where they make basic wooden crosses and distribute them for free. If you
drive through Beaver County, you will likely see several of the many thousands of wooden crosses that the Vavros have built and given away. Many of them have been given away at the corner of our church building.
AS A CHURCH WE WANT TO BE GENEROUS
IN HELPING THE COMMUNITY
Every month we take up special collections to give to several of the local missions organizations such as "Tiger Pause" and "Hose of Hope." We also collect money to donate to the "Deeply Rooted, Upward Reaching" campaign. This campaign helps to make Christian summer camp affordable to families. We wholeheartedly support this ministry, knowing that a week of camp can truly transform a life!
