Lent begins this month! “Lent is the forty-day season (excluding Sundays) of penitence and preparation for the Three Days of Holy Week and Easter. The current practice of forty days of Lent recall Jesus’ forty-day fast in the wilderness after his Baptism (Matthew 4:2, Luke 4:1-2) as well as Moses’ forty-day fast on Mount Sinai (Exodus 34:28). ” (http://blogs.elca.org/worship/430/).
Join us in growing in faith, love and service throughout the coming weeks! Our Lenten mid-week theme this year is “Prayer.” Each week we will be digging into a biblical text about prayer from the gospels and exploring different ways to pray. This will be a hands on and highly interactive Lenten Series. We are partnering with St. Paul and we will worship each Wednesday at 12:10 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. is at Immanuel. All are welcome!
