Lent is about a journey – a journey to the cross. As with any journey, we have choices about which road to take. Most take the well-trodden path, because it is familiar and easier. The gospel texts through Lent invite us down a road less traveled: the way of the cross. Choosing that road makes all the difference in our lives. During the remaining Sundays of Lent, Palm Sunday, and Easter, we will explore “The Roads of Lent” through various stories, sermons, and songs.
Pastor Dennis’ sermon this Sunday, March 6th will be “The Road Back Home.” Services are at 8:15, 9:45, and 11:00 am.
When you come to worship, be sure to bring a new comb to donate to our ‘Baskets of Promise’ campaign. IF YOU ARE ABLE, please bring a bath towel (dark color, light-weight, max. 52”x27”) too. On March 20th, we’ll assemble all the personal care items donated throughout Lent and send the kits to Lutheran World Relief for distribution to people around the world who have been driven from their homes by natural disasters or violence.
Share your God-given gifts with others in the church and in our community…..
Recently we offered our 2016 Time & Talent catalog for members and friends of Resurrection to read through and decide how they want to serve in the year ahead. If you haven’t already signed up for your serving preferences, please pick up the T&T catalog and a Volunteer Response Form and return them to the church office as soon as you can. The booklets and forms can be found at the usher stand or Welcome Center window at the church, or below:
