Christ United Methodist does drive-through Ash Wednesday

Shreveport, La. - Time is a precious thing and these days there never seems to be enough minutes in the day. There are drive through ATM's, drive through car washes, drive through restaurants, and at the Christ United Methodist Church in Shreveport there is a drive-through for Ash Wednesday 

Rachelle Terry said the drive-through was the only reason she and her kids could participate in the holy day.

Terry said "They have school, we have athletics, homework. We're tying to find a way to get it all in with their schedules." 

On Ash Wednesday a cross is made from ashes on your forehead to symbolize Jesus on the cross and to signal the beginning of Lent, a time of sacrifice and repentance before Easter.

Mark Goins, Lead Pastor at Christ United Methodist Church said  "Its the beginning of the journey to prepare yourself for the sacrifice that Jesus made for us on the cross." 

Typically, people will make their own sacrifice during Lent, many choose to give up something that's "bad" for you.

Lent ends on Easter Sunday.
