About “Restored in Christ” services for Holy Week

We will continue our “Restored in Christ” series during Holy Week and Easter. In this series by Concordia Seminary professor Joel Biermann, we have been facing together the brokenness of our world and lives, turning it over to Christ so we can be restored by Him through the cross. Each Wednesday evening service during Lent focused on a certain event in the Gospels and we’ve taken a good, hard, look at a broken element from a particular story. Coming to an understanding of how each of these broken elements leads to restoration in Christ is key to understanding what it ultimately means to live today as sanctified Christians. This theme will continue during Holy Week and Easter at the following services:

Palm Sunday, April 13th Broken Majesty 8:30 & 10:45 am

Maundy Thursday, April 17th Broken Sanctuary 7:00 pm

Good Friday, April 18th Broken Curtain 8:00 pm

Easter Sunday, April 20th Broken Seal 7:00, 8:30, & 10:45 am

I hope you will join in worship for all of these services, as they are for your spiritual benefit and edification.

After Easter, I’m looking forward to working with many of you on various things coming up this Spring and Summer including the Robin Hood Festival, VBS, family camp and Camp Lutherwood, Confirmation, and the start of the new School Year. At some point by this summer I’m hopeful to have a permanent projector and screen installed in the sanctuary for your benefit as well. This improvement will make it easy to have sermon illustrations, announcements, pre and post event videos and slide shows to keep you informed of our youth and mission activities, chapel, VBS, etc. I know, I know, some of you are thinking it’s going to cause more clutter in the sanctuary. But my goal is to do it in a way that will hardly be noticeable. A consultant has already done an evaluation and shown us what can be done. I think it will be a great enhancement to communication and knowledge of the faith.

Grace be with you all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love undying. (Eph. 6:23-24)
