The Lenten season begins each year with the solemn day for repentance and renewal of God's people called Ash Wednesday - this year on March 6, 2019. Once again this year there will be a special Ash Wednesday worship service at Redeemer Lutheran on that day at 7:00 p.m. The service will include the traditional imposition of ashes and the Lord's Supper. Please make it your priority to join us for worship on this holy day!
On subsequent Wednesdays (March 13, 20, 27, and April 3 and 10) there will be simple midweek Lenten devotional worship services also at 7:00 p.m. with a midweek meal at 6:00 pm. depending on the completion of our Family Life Center. Plan also to be there for these services
In April there will be special Holy Week services before Easter arrives on April 21. Watch for more details about these soon.
Lent takes us on a devotional journey to the cross. These special worship services help us make a meaningful journey and show our gratitude to our Savior who "gave up" so much for us!
