"Ashes to Go" on March 5


On March 5, Ash Wednesday, Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill is bringing “Ashes to Go” into our front driveway. 

“Ashes to Go” is a slightly irreverent name for a most solemn religious tradition — the distribution of ashes on Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. 

Ashes will be offered during the morning commute, between 7:00 - 9:00 a.m., to any commuters who pass by and stop in off of Seminary Road.  Ashes will be offered to all who wish to receive them.  One does not have to be a member of a particular faith. 

“Ashes to Go” brings spirit, belief, and belonging out from behind church doors, and into the places where we go every day.  Look for our clever Burma Shave-like signs that direct people our way.
