Our Lenten Journey – 2015

CAMA Noontime Services

Saint John will be hosting the Noon services sponsored by the Ministerium. Services will be held each Wednesday in Lent (there is no service in Holy Week). Worship will begin at 12:00 PM in the Sanctuary, with a light lunch in the Scheel Friendship Room immediately following the service. Our church will provide soup and beverages each week; the “Preacher’s church” will provide sandwiches and dessert.

Our Midweek Evening Services

Throughout Lent, we will be joining with Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, located on Bower Hill Road in Scott Township, for a mid-week series of discussions and prayer services entitled Conversations for Lent. The services will begin at approximately 7:30 PM, with a Soup Supper and “conversations” held at the “Host Church” beginning at 6:00 PM:
