Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 days (excluding Sundays) leading to Easter. The mark of ashes upon our forehead (or hand) is in recognition of not only our mortality but our need for repentance. The season of Lent is an opportunity to turn our attention back to God and prepare for the gift of eternal life, which we celebrate at Easter. We will have 2 opportunities for you to receive ashes.
- Stop by the Parkville Coffee House between 7:00-11:00 a.m. to receive ashes.
- Join us for our Ash Wednesday Worship Service in the Worship Center at 7:00 p.m. where you will receive ashes and Holy Communion. Childcare is available for 3 years and under. All are welcome!

During the school year, PWUMC offers Couples’ Nights Out once a month (usually on the first Friday) to give couples an opportunity for an evening to themselves.
Each CNO starts with a short program (usually 30 minutes or less) followed by a date night where they discuss what they’ve learned.
We are excited to announce our Couples Nights Out program for the 2017/2018 season. We will be using the book by Francis and Lisa Chan, “You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity”. Francis and Lisa will address the question that many couples wonder at the altar: “How do I have a great marriage?” Learn more about resources available for this study.
Cost is $10 per couple each month when registered 10 days before the event. (Reservations after that will be charged a $20 late fee). This covers the adult program AND childcare. Childcare check-in is available starting at 6:15 p.m., with pickup by 9 p.m.
