Virtual Lenten Midweek Worship
Wednesdays Feb 24 – Mar 24, 7pm
 

“We are created for communion with God, to love one another, and to live in harmony with creation.” – Evangelical Lutheran Worship

Lent is often a time of fasting and solitude, but it is also a time for us to come together as the Body of Christ. In our world now, we need this community more than ever.

To honor this theme of community, congregations in the Cincinnati Conference of the ELCA have come together to bring you virtual Midweek Worship each Wednesday evening throughout Lent.

Each week features a virtual worship service at 7pm, followed by a discussion group opportunity to reflect on the theme of the evening. Worship and discussion groups will both take place via zoom.

Healthy neighborhood of Cincinnati, which intends to be a place of healing, restoration and repair cultivated through meaningful work and spiritual practices.  Click here to watch a video of Tikkun’s ministries in our community.  To donate your Lenten Midweek offering to Tikkun Farm, submit your donation through Hope by donating online here or mailing a check to Hope, with the note Tikkun in the memo field.

Book Study

The God Who Sees by Karen Gonzalez
Mondays 7:15pm on Zoom
 
Here is a riveting story of seeking safety in another land. Here is a gripping journey of loss, alienation, and belonging… Here, too, is the sweeping epic of immigrants and refugees in Scripture. Abraham, Hagar, Joseph, Ruth: these intrepid heroes of the faith cross borders and seek refuge. As witnesses to God’s liberating power, they name the God they see at work, and they become grafted onto God’s family tree.

Easter Flowers

The Easter season is a time of rebirth, and nowhere is that more evident than in the flowers we choose to decorate our sanctuary. Each of these blossoms is a miracle of spring, and each comes with its own symbolism, many of which are ideal messages for Easter and reflect the spirit of the season. Click here to be order either Lilies, Daffodils or Tulips or all of the above! The deadline for orders is February 28th.
