As a Lenten lead-in to the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, our Mid-Week Lenten Services will be from the series, Standing at the Cross and will focus on portions of sermons Martin Luther actually preached during Lent, Holy Week and Easter in the parishes where he served. As we stand with Luther at the foot of the cross each week, we contemplate the ways in which we stand firm in the faith as followers of Christ during this holy season. Join us with what we hope will be a meaningful Lenten Journey.

March 1 Ash Wednesday: "Standing in the Word" When Jesus was tempted by the devil, the Savior responded; "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God." Join us as we are nourished in faith by the Word and by our Savior, the Bread of Life.
March 8: "Standing in Prayer" When a Canaanite woman asked Jesus to heal her daughter, Jesus did not immediately do so. But hidden beneath his “No” was the Savior’s “Yes,” and the woman’s daughter was healed. This week in our Lenten worship we will explore the “Yes!” imbedded in the heart of Jesus.
March 15: "Standing Unafraid" We fear many things, and we often fear death. This week in our Lenten service we will see how our Savior Jesus Christ, true God and true man, faced death and through his death and resurrection defeated it for us.
March 22: "Standing in Suffering" As we stand together at the cross this week, we will see how Jesus suffered the penalty that we deserved for our sins. The Lamb of God suffered the penalty of death for us so that through faith in his name we have forgiveness and life.
March 29: "Standing Through Persecution" We have the freedom during this Lenten season and always to gather for worship. Many of our brothers and sisters around the world do not enjoy such freedom. As we stand together at the cross, we remember the suffering of the saints who endure persecution for the sake of the Savior who suffered for them, and for us.
April 5: "Standing in Truth" In our world we are surrounded by many philosophies and religions, all claiming to have the truth. In our Lenten worship this week we will gather to worship Jesus our Savior, whose kingdom is a kingdom of truth and who is himself the Way and the Truth and Life.
