*NEW* High School Ministry in Lent – Starting March 2 we will join in the larger Church in the season of Lent. The forty days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. Each week we will discover a new weekly theme and use a book with multimedia links to connect with us every day. Every youth can get a book for this study and check out the blog for updates or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram! The book is a guide…a help…a companion on the 40-day journey of prayer and Christian practice known as Lent. On this journey, we’ll practice the disciplines of addition, subtraction, and introspection so that we may more fully participate in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
WEDNESDAYS IN LENT, we are adding a new service over the lunch hour, 12:15 - 12:45 p.m. Evening services start at 6:30 p.m.
Also each Wednesday the Chapel will be set up as a prayer space /labyrinth walk 10 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.
Dinners will be available starting each week. Serving starts at 5 p.m.
Details about the worship themes and meals can be found on firstlutherancr.org/lent
