Ash Wednesday – February 22, 2023 (and Lent, too!)

Ash Wednesday worship: weather precluded our in-person gathering 2/22/23. Here is the audio devotion link for you to use at home.

In addition, we have some exciting changes and some longstanding traditions Lent and Holy Week 2023.

First: SOUP SUPPERS ARE COMING BACK-with a twist. We’re calling it “soup AND suppers”-as volunteer groups plan one simple, kid-friendly entree and one soup to choose from. Meals begin Wednesday, March 1 and conclude March 29. Each meal service in the Luther Rooms begin at 5:45pm with a freewill donation. At 6:30 pm, we gather in the sanctuary for brief worship. Our theme for midweek worship is O CHRIST, SURROUND ME. You’ll learn the background of this phrase (it’s ancient!)…and, over 5 Wednesday nights, we will spend holy time considering God’s protection and courage. Worship is 30 minutes.

Wednesday nights are the perfect time to rest in Christ, and make friends old and new. Consider inviting a neighbor, a coworker, or anyone you feel might need some special moments for Christ to surround us all.
