April 2, Fifth Sunday in Lent

In this day’s gospel Jesus reveals his power over death by raising Lazarus from the dead. The prophet Ezekiel prophesies God breathing new life into dry bones. To those in exile or living in the shadows of death, these stories proclaim God’s promise of resurrection. In baptism we die with Christ that we might also be raised with him to new life.

Worship is at 9:00 am and 11:15 am. Be with us.

March 26, Fourth Sunday in Lent

Baptism is sometimes called enlightenment. The gospel for this Sunday is the story of the man born blind healed by Christ. I was blind, but now I see, declares the man. In baptism God opens our eyes to see the truth of who we are: God’s beloved sons and daughters. As David was anointed king of Israel, in baptism God anoints our head with oil, and calls us to bear witness to the light of Christ in our daily lives.

Worship is at 9:00 am and 11:15 am. Be with us.

March 19, Third Sunday in Lent

In this Sunday’s gospel the Samaritan woman asks Jesus for water, an image of our thirst for God. Jesus offers living water, a sign of God’s grace flowing from the waters of baptism. The early church used this gospel and those of the next two Sundays to deepen baptismal reflection during the final days of preparation before baptism at Easter. As we journey to the resurrection feast, Christ comes among us in word, bath, and meal—offering us the life-giving water of God’s mercy and forgiveness.

Worship is at 9:00 am and 11:15 am. Be with us.

March 15, Lenten Wednesday Worship Service – Rev. Roger Allmendinger

We will have two worship services again: 11:00 a.m. (with lunch to follow) and 6:00 p.m. ( with supper prior to worship). For the five Wednesdays of Lent we will reflect on five questions that are named in the hymn Will you Come and Follow Me? The five questions will be: Will you come and Follow me: will you go where you don’t know, will you care for cruel and kind, will you set the prisoner free, will you love the you you hide and will you use the faith you’ve found to reshape the world around.
We are excited to collaborate with three other congregations from the Eastside this Lent and look forward to welcoming a pastor from the three different congregations to join us for worship and hear them preach at one of the 6:00 p.m. evening services. Tonight at the 6:00 pm worship service our preacher is The Rev. Roger Allmendinger of Arlington Hills Lutheran Church.

March 12, Second Sunday in Lent

During Lent we journey with all those around the world who will be baptized at the Easter Vigil. In today’s gospel Jesus tells Nicodemus that he must be born of water and Spirit. At the font we are given a new birth as daughters and sons of God. As God made a covenant with Abraham, in baptism God promises to raise us up with Christ to new life. From worship we are sent forth to proclaim God’s love for all the world.

Worship is at 9:00 am and 11:15 am. Be with us.
