This year we take up the theme of Holy Baptism. We will be talking about how we live out our baptism daily. The question Luther asked was, “What does baptism mean for daily life?”
We will continue our focus on Luther’s Small Catechism.
On Sunday mornings in worship we will be talking to members of our congregation about how they live out their baptism in life’s ordinary circumstances. The themes for our discussion will come straight from the assigned Lenten Scriptures. We will discover how people respond with faith when challenges happen in our lives.
Each Sunday we will take the Gospel we hear in worship and look at how it intersects with our daily life. We will ask the quintessential Lutheran question of it, What does this mean for me? Be ready to engage the scripture on a very personal level.
Wednesday Night Soup Supper and Worship
After we share a meal, we will be looking at each of the 5 aspects of our Baptismal Affirmation:
As in past Advents and Lents, you will have daily devotional cards to mark the 40 days of Lent and the days of Holy Week.
A Congregational Service Project
To emphasize the watery part of our baptismal theme, we will be collecting loose change for Lutheran World Relief, to fund a $500 water system that provides clean water for drinking and bathing.
Our Objectives for our Lenten Season for every worshiper:
