Making Christ Known

We are an Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) congregation growing in the likeness of Christ by:

Worshiping, praying, and studying God’s word;
Being together with other people; and
Acting in faith through words and deeds both inside and outside our church walls.

Spiritual Practices: Jesus Loves Me - Now What??

As Lutherans, we understand that our salvation comes through God’s grace and not anything that we do to earn God’s love.  However, that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing for us to do as followers of Jesus.

 During this Lenten season, we will spend time with five foundational practices of the Christian faith, five “marks of discipleship,” which both bring us closer to God and also set us apart from the ways of the world.

 The practices we will examine are:  Prayer, Worship, Inviting, Encouraging, and Giving/Serving.

 There are a variety of ways you can be part of this Lenten experience:

  • Attend our Lenten Dinners.  New this year will be activities and conversation starters during our Lenten Dinners to get us thinking and reflecting on our spiritual practices.  Don’t worry!  There will still be plenty of time to enjoy good food and socialize.
  • Attend our Lenten Worship.  We will continue the tradition of Holden Evening Prayer as the centerpiece of our Lenten Worship and will have members of the congregation who will speak about a different practice each week.
  • Take the Practice Home.  We will also provide weekly reflection sheets for you to take home with suggestions for ways to practice each practice for folks and families of all ages.
  • Join a Small Group. for additional reflection and conversation:

Monday evenings 7-8:30 pm at the Gentes’ home

Wednesday evenings 7:45 – 8:45 pm in the Inspiration Room

Friday mornings 10-11 am in the Inspiration Room
