This Lenten Season, the three area ELCA churches are working together to offer a series of messages called “The Miracles of Lent.”
Each week, they will explore one of the signs and miracles God performed at the moment of Jesus’ death on the cross as told in Matthew 27:51-54. Rather than going to each other’s churches each week the pastors will rotate. They will gather Sunday afternoons at 5 p.m. for a short service centered around the miracle of the week. Afterwards, there will be a simple meal provided, and the proceeds will be donated to “Relay for Life.”
The schedule is as follows:
March 13: The Miraculous Tearing of the Temple Curtain: Pastor Barb Koch, Zion Lutheran Church
March 20: The Miraculous Earthquake; Pastor John Barichivich, Jerusalem Lutheran Church.
March 27: The Miracle of the Splitting of the Rocks: Pastor Barb Koch, Zion Lutheran Church.
April 3: The Miraculous Raising of the Saints from Death: Pastor Patrick Finley, St. John’s Lutheran Church.
April 10: The Miraculous Faith of the Roman Soldiers: Pastor David Hendrix.
