Our worship theme for this year's Lenten Journey will be the 12 Stations of the Cross, with an emphasis on the Biblical narrative of Jesus' last journey on Earth. We will retell the story using art, prayer, devotion, sermons and hymns, concentrating on a different station during each Sunday and Wednesday evening worship service.
During the Lenten season, Salem will offer worship opportunities on Sunday mornings at 8:00 and 10:30am plus additional mid-week Lenten services at 7:00pm on Wednesday evenings. The complete Lenten worship schedule with corresponding Stations of the Cross and scripture texts is as follows:
Pastor Lee will be teaching the confirmation students every sunday from 9:15 to 10:15am.
Students will be learning Luther's Small Catechism, including the Creed, Lord's Prayer, and the Sacraments. They will also be taking sermon notes and actively participating in class each week.
Confirmation Sunday is scheduled for Sunday, April 27th.
In keeping with our Lenten theme, Salem has prepared a collection of devotions each focusing on a different Station of the Cross.
The devotions have been written by various disciples (members) of Salem and feature drawings of Jesus by artist Luc Freymanc, who graciously makes his work openly available.
