Church will take ashes to the streets

Several members of our church will join our pastors as we take ashes to the streets on Ash Wednesday, February 14. The plan (as this edition of The Bell goes to press) is to take ashes to the Union City BART station and to make them available to anyone who wishes to receive them during the afternoon commute. If you would like to help with this effort, please contact either of our pastors.

Because Ash Wednesday is also Valentine’s Day, rather than reminding people that they are dust and to dust they shall return, our Pastors plan to say, “Remember you are love and to love you shall return,” as they trace hearts on people’s foreheads.

Our pastors will also offer a simple, meditative service at the church at 7:30 p.m. for all who would like to participate.
