Midweek Lenten Services begin

Ash Wednesday

February 14

7:30

  Lenten services will follow on February 21, 28, March 7, 14 and 21.  Our theme this year is “Thy Will be Done”.  “Not as I will, but as you will,” Jesus prayed to his Father the night before he went to the cross for our salvation.  And that is our prayer as well this Lent as we seek to do God’s will in our lives, as we draw near to the observance of Christ’ suffering, death and resurrection during Holy Week.  Each service in the series focuses on a different aspect of God’s will at work among us.  Biblical characters are used as insightful reference points each week to guide us in following our Lord more nearly day by day.

Lutheran Hour

Ministries Sunday

February 4

Lutheran Hour Sunday will be Sunday, February 4.  A pamphlet and offering envelope will be in your boxes on that day.  Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) can only move forward with your help.  You can partner with them today:  (1) Remember LHM in your prayers and share your own prayer requests by visiting lhm.org/prayer.  (2) Tell others about LHM’s work.  Like “Lutheran Hour Ministries” on Facebook to learn what God is doing through the work of this global mission movement.  You can also sign up for our Middle East group to stay up-to-date on efforts in the Middle East and North Africa.  (3) Volunteer to share THRED content with others through your own social networks by visiting lhm.org/thred. (4) Make a gift to share the Good News worldwide.  Every gift you give today will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000 through a special grant opportunity provided by generous supports of this ministry.  LHM is not included in the budget of the LCMS and relies on generous gifts from people like you.
