Ash Wednesday is right around the corner! For the families who can make it to Bethlehem Lutheran Church – Twin Cities, we have a 5:45 pm Ash Wednesday Family Blessing service. It’s sweet as families come forward to put ashes on each other, hear the words they are dust, and then snuggle up together to receive a blessing. Below is the bulletin from 2020.
The families that are there will then receive a take home kit similar to the one below. (The beads and ashes-to-go are for families who will be pick up their building kit early and will attend the service via live stream.)
The kit includes:
A bag to reuse for March Food Drive!
40 Days to Pray: scratch off sticker prayers.
A bag of building bricks. (Careful what you name things with trademarks!)
Lent: Building with Jesus Devotional that goes with the building bricks.
Super simple and sweet! What will you be doing for lent?
