Happy Lent!
For those who know Lutherans, there isn't usually anything HAPPY about it!

But that is a sad thing really.  Lent is full of hope, of expectation, of promise.  Lent and Advent (before Christmas) are very similar seasons of the Church Year, and both lead us to major Festivals!  We hear the story of Jesus, of all he did, taught, preached, healed, debated, argued, and stood up for those with no voice.  It is an amazing time really.

So we gather for worship and play hymns that are not as peppy, remembering how our walk of faith isn't always so close to Jesus' instructions.  But we also know God's incredible love for us, seen most clearly IN JESUS!  

This season gives us a chance to repent of our failures, remember the love and grace of God, and return God to a more central place in our lives!  
So I hope you also take a chance this Lent, to refresh your relationship with God.  Join us for worship Sundays at 10:30 and Wednesdays at 7pm (Taize music for our service), and get back on track in your walk of faith!

Minister of Music


Our beloved Music Director Judy Blair keeps using the “R” word at church.  She will soon be retiring, which means we have some pretty big shoes to fill.  A team to interview prospects has been formed, and we’ve updated her job description.  If YOU are aware of a likely candidate, a link to the job description is posted below.  Please talk to any likely candidates and direct them to the website, or pass their contact information to Pastor Dan or Cynthia Klingensmith.
