Preview of Holy Week Worship & Conclusion of Lenten Mission Projects
Holy Week 2021
Dear friends of Jesus,
Preparations are underway for Holy Week worship services.
On Thursday, April 1, students in grade 5 will celebrate a customized Communion Milestone. They have learned that
the body and blood of Jesus is
given and shed for them
, and we welcome these members to the Lord's table incrementally in small groups. Please pray for our students and their families.
There is an additional opportunity for Maundy Thursday worship with Holy Communion, celebrated at home--and
are invited. We will hear the story of Jesus' love made real in service to others, and in the Last Supper.
To participate in real time with others, click the link below [left column]. The Zoom waiting room opens at 5:55pm; we can greet one another before worship begins.
Can't make 6pm? The service is available for viewing anytime [right column.]

We also wish to thank everyone for supporting the
Lenten Mission Project, benefiting global ministry partners:
1 body, 1 dollar, 40 days
Synod leaders joined our Confirmation students, mentors, and parents as we virtually traveled in
A Migrant's Journey
this past month. We rejoice that not only has our
pledged $1 per baptized member to this campaign ($1934!), but in addition, several individuals are choosing to offer over-and-above gifts of $40, as well. All dollars go directly to our Southeastern MN Synod for direct needs in Columbia, Tanzania, and the US-Mexico border. If you wish to give a gift in any amount, there is still time.
And if you participated in Soup Suppers at Home for Lent with a DIY offering jar, your dollars benefit summer events for First Lutheran Youth-with 10% tithe to
Simply drop off a check or cash donation marked in memo line
Soup Suppers at Home,
or bring with you when you return to church.
