Federated sets Ash Wednesday Soup Supper

Published: Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 1:09 p.m. CDT

The Federated Church in Sycamore will begin the Lenten season with its traditional Ash Wednesday Soup Supper and Service at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

All are welcome. A light supper of homemade soups and bread will be served. Following the supper the Rev. Dennis Johnson will lead a short worship service, which will include communion and the imposition of ashes for those who wish to participate.

The church season of Lent, the 40-day period (excluding Sundays) preceding Easter, is marked by a time of prayer and preparation for the Easter celebration. The 40 days represent the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness preparing for his ministry. Just as Jesus faced many temptations during this time, Christians use the Lenten season as a time for introspection, self examination and repentance.

Federated Church is located at 612 W. State St. in Sycamore. Parking is available behind the church, off of Greeley Street. Use the west doors off of the parking lot to access Dutton Hall.
