Ash Wednesday Worship Service

The first Lenten service will be held at 6:30 P.M. on Wednesday, February 18th. The theme for this year’s Lenten season is “Restored in Christ” a series of special services for Lent by Rev. Joel Biermann.

‘The season of Lent is a time for us to face together the brokenness of our lives and our world, and then turn that brokenness over to Christ so that we can be restored by him. Written by seminary professor Joel Biermann, each service in the series focuses on a certain event in the Lenten story and takes a good, hard look at a broken element from that particular story. Coming to an understanding of how each of these broken elements in these services leads to restoration in Christ is key to understanding what it ultimately means to live today as new creations in Christ.’

The Lenten worship services will be round robin involving: Laurie Albertson from Waters of Grace, Pastor Jillene Gallatin from Trinity, Pastor Dean Grier from First Lutheran of Audubon, Pastor John Lee from St. Peters, Pastor Ann Newgard-Larson from Bakke-Richwood and Pastor Rob Nelson and Pastor Randy Whitehead from the LAMP Parish. A light supper meal will be served at 5:30 P.M. before each of the 5 Lenten 6:30 P.M. worship services beginning February 25th.
