Mid-Week Bible Study
7:00 p.m., Wednesdays
Our mid-week Lenten program this year will be hosted by the Lyonsville church (corner of Joliet and Wolf Roads). We will discuss the book Driving Lessons. Diving Lessons offers a series of Lenten lessons for diving deeper into the Christian life, written by caring friends. By the end of it, you might desire to be baptized for the first time or to have your baptism renewed at your church. Or you might simply read and be refreshed, growing in the confidence of faith
Lectionary Bible Study

This is a very rigorous discussion of the Gospel lesson for the day. Many a sermon has been changed at the last minute because of this discussion. Please join us.
I was raised in the Lutheran Church. And it’s true. You can take the boy out of the Lutheran Church, but you can’t take the Lutheran Church out of the boy. Lent always reminds me of this. For me as a boy growing up in the Lutheran Church Good Friday, the crucifixion of Jesus, was the central act of God for the salvation of the world. Of course, the resurrection of Jesus from the dead was the spectacular witness to God’s acceptance of the sacrifice of Jesus for the sins of the world. The resurrection was God’s cosmic declaration of what Jesus had achieved by his death on the cross. The resurrection was the proud declaration by God of forgiveness. However, the basis for that forgiveness was the death of Jesus on the cross.
