Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The convenience of drive-up service has come to the church.

The pastor at First United Methodist offered ashes in downtown Fargo on this Ash Wednesday.

Reverend Cody Schuler held signs saying "Doing Church Different," and "Got Ashes," at the corner of Broadway and 2nd Avenue.

While our cameras were there, a few people got their ashes in a different way. To go.

Rev. Cody Schuller, 1st United Methodist: “We always expect people to come to us, so our idea is to be out here on the street, with people passing by, and at least offer it to let people know this time is beginning, and that the church cares about them.”

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. The ashes signify repentance.
