Ash Wednesday Service

Ash Wednesday falls on the first day of Lent, a time of introspection and repentance prior to Easter.  Once perceived as Roman Catholic, over the past 30 years or so, Presbyterians have begun to recover Ash Wednesday as part of the worship life of the Church.  What has made congregations more accepting of Ash Wednesday rituals has been a broader reassessing of the liturgical traditions and teaching related to Holy Week and to the   preceding weeks of Lent.  The 40 days of Lent mirrors Jesus’ 40 days of prayer and temptation in the desert before he was crucified.  To some, Lent means “giving something up”, but as Presbyterians, we use this period to commit ourselves to doing something that will deepen our faith during Lent, perhaps a special daily devotion or committing ourselves to an outreach activity.

During the service as the ashes are imposed, marked in the sign of a cross on the forehead, this phrase is often used: “From dust you come and to dust you shall return.” Death is a part of life, we are finite.  We do not live forever, so the choices we make and the things we do are important because we are here for a only a short time. Mortality isn’t the last word when we belong to Christ.  The good news is that GOD HAS THE LAST WORD.

Red Cross Blood Drive
Mar 3 @ 2:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Red Cross Blood Drive @ Great Bridge Presbyterian Church | Chesapeake | Virginia | United States

Our next Red Cross Blood Drive is scheduled for Tuesday March 3rd, from 2 pm to 7 pm in the Fellowship Hall.   This is a great way to serve our community.   There is currently no substitute for donated blood for blood transfusions.  Since less than 10 percent of the US population donates blood each year, and there is a constant need for accident victims, cancer patients and others, donating is giving a precious gift.  The Red Cross separates the blood after donation into red cells, platelets, and plasma – so each donation can touch up to three lives.

Signups will be in the Fellowship Hall between services starting on February 9th.

THE MISSION of Great Bridge Presbyterian Church is to share the love of God and His promise of salvation with all people, equipping them to mature in Jesus Christ. Our vision focuses on the first three words of this tagline, “sharing Christ’s love.” The vision of GBPC is to share Christ’s love through one million touches in our church, our community, our country, and throughout the world. The vision statement is patterned after Jesus’ command to His disciples in Acts 1:8, that empowered by the Holy Spirit they should be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. In order to “equip God’s people,” we provide multiple ways for people to Worship, Grow and Serve–see where YOU connect!
