Midweek Lent Worship

Wednesdays at 6:30pm

          For many years now, Lutherans have observed Lent with a series of special Midweek worship services in which they meditate on the passion history of Jesus. Eternal Love has done this since its beginning.
          As usual, this year a series of six special services will be held on Wednesday evenings during Lent so that all of us may focus on the beautiful story of our Savior’s amazing grace and perfect love.  Ash Wednesday, the first of the 40 days of Lent, is February 14, 2018. That evening we will hold our first Midweek Lent worship service beginning at 6:30pm.
          The theme of our worship services this year will be: JESUS CHRIST OUR GREAT HIGH PRIEST.  The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ brings us salvation and serves us in three roles (offices): Prophet, Priest, and King. This year’s theme focuses on Jesus’ office of priest. Through a study of selections from Hebrews, worshipers will see how Jesus was and is the High Priest of high priests and how his role as the ultimate High Priest affects Christians’ lives both now and for eternity.
