Lenten Services 2015
God’s Gift of Forgiveness
- We will gather each Wednesday evening during the Lenten Season to focus on what Christ has done for us.
6:00 p.m. Soup and Bread in the Chapel and
7:00 p.m. Lenten Service in the Chapel
- The theme of this series is God’s gift of forgiveness, especially as we find this forgiveness in the seven penitential psalms and in the practice of Confession and Absolution.
- The sermons and devotions in this series expound on the nature of sin as seen in the psalms, the devastating effects it has on the soul and the conscience, and what we receive through God’s gift of the forgiveness of sins in our Lord Jesus Christ.
- Each sermon also includes a portion of the Small Catechism for meditation and connection to the larger life of the Church.
