Your Midweek TLC | February 21, 2024

Lenten Worship

Lenten midweek services will be at noon and 6:30 p.m. today and continue Wednesdays throughout Lent. We will not have meals before any Lenten service this year.

Show Your Love to Our Youth

Visit the tree in the narthex

Choose a heart from the tree. Each heart has a suggested donation amount, but any amount is welcome! You do not need to return the heart.

Take an envelope from the basket by the tree.

Inside the envelope, you will find a prayer card as a reminder to pray for our youth. You keep this card. Complete the donation card and return it in the envelope with your donation.

Place your completed envelope in the box next to the tree or the offering plate, or bring it to the administrative office.

Thank you for your support of our youth! All proceeds benefit them as they raise funds to attend the 2025 LCMS National Youth Gathering.
