Lent 2018

Lenten services

During Lent we gather more frequently to remember our baptism, deepen our understanding of the faith, and help each other to prepare for the great feast of Jesus' resurrection.

 

Wednesdays in Lent

On each Wednesday in Lent there is an opportunity to gather for fellowship, learning, and worship.

  • 10:00am and 5:00pm Bible studies based on movies
  • 6:00pm - soup supper
  • 7:00pm - Worship service. Lutheran pastors from around Lorain County taking turns leading the services, speaking on "Powerful Passions."
