Ash Wednesday Service - Wednesday, February 18, 7:00pm at El Segundo UMC
We will enter into the penitential season of Lent by having ashes placed on our foreheads, walk with Jesus on the road that will lead him to the cross, and confess our sins and our need for God to carry us with him. Our Ash Wednesday service has been a special blessing, with over 75 voices of the joint Chancel Choirs from all the participating churches. Hope to see you there.
Lenten Prayer - Monday through Saturday, 7:00am, starting February 19-April 4
Do you seem to start every day one step behind?

Here is your chance. In keeping with the upcoming season of Lent, we will be having a daily time of prayer.
