Wednesdays during Lent

lenten graphic 2017On Wednesdays during Lent we come together around soup, study and reflection, and prayer. The Lenten Vespers theme this year is The Seven Petitions of the Lord’s Prayer.  We invite you to join us! 

Soup Supper every Wednesday in Lent
At 5:30 p.m. in the parish hall the Altar Guild and the Worship Commission will kick off the Soup Suppers serving home-made soup until 6:40 p.m. Donations for the Lenten Soup Suppers benefit our missionary David Brondos in Mexico City.  All are invited to join one of our Wednesday teams in either preparing a soup or helping us serve.  Please contact beverlydavis@ctkelc.org to volunteer.  Continue reading

TaizecandlesTaizé Worship will be called Contemplative Mass. More styles of music and prayer will be added to beloved Taizé chants to offer a yet more meditative worship experience, all so to deepen faith and empower personal lives for peace-making. We hope to reach more people with God’s gentle grace by this Saturday worship experience.

Lenten Devotional Booklet – Praying together in Lent

free indeedLet us engage together in praying Luther’s Small Catechism for this year’s Lenten devotions. In the 500th anniversary year of the Reformation we will re-learn and deepen many aspects of our Lutheran heritage. Publishing house Augsburg Fortress has put together a delightful little book Free Indeed with daily devotions which take us through Lent with readings from Martin Luther’s Small Catechism. Each reading is accompanied by a photo, a quote to ponder, reflection, and prayer. Free Indeed invites you to reflect on Martin Luther’s guide to the basics of Christian faith during the Lenten season, and within the observance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.

The devotional books will be offered in the narthex on Sundays in Lent, as long as supplies last. An ebook version is available at Augsburg Fortress.
