What Lutherans Believe
Through his ministry,
death and resurrection, Christ has saved us from "sin, death, and
the power of the devil." God's gift of faith in Christ's saving
power makes that saving power effective for us. In joy and freedom,
we respond to God's grace with praise and thankful service.

MID-WEEK LENTEN SUPPER & SERVICE Wednesdays during Lent (March 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th) Join us at 6:15PM for a simple supper of salad, soup and bread; followed at 7:00PM with a new Vesper Service (similar to Holden Prayer, but with a Lenten focus.) ***We need volunteers to provide food for the Lenten Suppers. *** Look for sign-up sheets on the bulletin board (across from the Parlor.) Remember, many hands make little work!
LENTEN LEARNING OPPORTUNITY What are the Means of Grace? How do we use them? Who’s included? Who’s left out? Christians don’t often think about these questions, but they are important to our faith practice and our mission in the world. On Wednesdays during Lent, you are invited to share in a conversation: The Use of the Means of Grace: Baptism, Holy Communion, and Mission. Over the five weeks of Lent prior to Passion Sunday, we will consider the following topics:
The Triune God Acts in the Means of Grace; Holy Baptism and the Christian Assembly; Hospitality and Holy Communion; Welcome, Nurture and the Christian Faith; and, The Means of Grace and Christian Mission.
These 30-minute conversations will follow the evening Vespers Service, and will be led by Pr. Ted Cockley, a member of St. Luke Church, who recently retired from his call as chaplain to Buffalo Valley Lutheran Village in Lewisburg. If you would like to join the group, please call the Church Office (570-323-7309) by Monday, February 23, 2015, or simply stay after the mid-week Vespers service on Wednesday, February 25th as we begin these informal but important conversations.
