Folks are marking Ash Wednesday in the parking lot of Ghent United Methodist Church.
Pastor Melody Tanner had the ashes ready to go at the church until 7 p.m.
It's in a place of a full Ash Wednesday service.
Tanner thought delivering ashes in the parking lot would be a good way to reach more people.
Ash Wednesday marks the first day of the Christian period of fasting and reflection called Lent.
Believers are marked with a sign of the cross in ashes.
