Lent & Easter Services

Lent & Easter Services

Lent is a special time to worship, study, and grow. In addition to our own regular services and as a way of growing in the richness of a broader community, this year we will join with Salem Lutheran Church in Marion for our midweek Lenten services. Each service will have the opportunity to get to know each other with an optional soup and sandwich fellowship at 6:15 PM (an informal start time; come later if it suits you) with the service at 7:00 PM in the sanctuary. The theme will be “The Disciplines of Lent”.
