Schedule for mid-week worship during Lent 2018 at Christ Lutheran:

Ash Wednesday Worship is offered at 12:00 noon and 7:00 p.m.  Our worship at both services includes the imposition of ashes, Holy Communion, and Pastor’s Jim’s sermon. Our adult choir will sing at the evening service.

Two worship services are offered on Wednesdays, the rest of the Lenten Season.  

Our 12:00 noon service takes place at Christ.  This intimate service will include a short interview with Pastor Jim and a congregation member on the topic, Encounters with the Divine.  We will have Holy Communion and prayers in this 30-minute service.  On Wednesday evenings, we join the Lakeside Churches for a meal at 5:45 p.m. & worship at 6:30-7:00 p.m. This takes place at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church on Woodman Road. Christ Lutheran has responsibility for the meal and worship on Wednesday, February 28.

 Holy Week at Christ will be special. On Palm Sunday, March 25, our choirs will present the meaningful Cantata, Light in Deepest Night. This is a Lenten Meditation, based on the writings of Julian of Norwich.  This will be at the 10:30 p.m. service only. The 8:15 service will follow the regular liturgy.  On Maundy Thursday, March 28, we will have a Seder in our Fellowship Hall. Our invited guests are the members at Lakeside Presbyterian Church.  We will conclude our evening in the Sanctuary.  A combined choir from Lakeside Presbyterian and our CLC Choir will sing and we will have the traditional stripping of the altar.  On Good Friday, March 29, we are invited to participate in the Stations of the Cross at Our Lady of Lourdes at 2:00 p.m.  We have a Tenebrae Service at 7 p.m. at Christ. Several Lakeside Churches will have choir members and clergy participate in this service, which includes the words of Jesus from the cross and meditative music.

The Festival of the Resurrection (Easter) is April 1.  We will worship at 8:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Our Easter Breakfast will take place in the Fellowship Hall, between services.
