FIRST LUTHERAN CHURCH
301 S. COLLEGE ST.

At First Lutheran, we gather for worship again on Maundy Thursday. “Maundy” comes from a Latin word, which means Mandate or Command. Jesus says, “I give you a new commandment that you love one another.” It’s Love Thursday! Jesus also washed the disciples’ feet that night—the job of a servant. It is “Serve Thursday”! And he gave us Holy Communion. The Last Supper becomes the Lord’s Supper.

NEW BIBLE STUDY on Wednesdays



NEW BIBLE STUDY

Heart 2 Heart Bible Study group
begins

Wednesday, February 28
@ 9:00am
@ First Lutheran Church
(301 South College in Paxton, Illinois)
in the Meeting Room.

Come study with us:
LifeLight: Obadiah/Jonah/Micah.

It is a nine part series
on the Lives of Obadiah, Jonah and Micah.

“THE vision of Obadiah.” (Obadiah 1) These words begin the Bible book of Obadiah. The prophet reveals nothing about himself except his name in the book that he composed in 607 B.C.E. In a book completed over two centuries earlier, the prophet Jonah candidly relates what he personally experienced in connection with his missionary assignment. The 60 years of Micah’s prophetic activity lie between those of Obadiah and Jonah, stretching from 777 B.C.E. to 717 B.C.E. All that Micah relates about himself is that he is “of [the village] Moresheth” and that God’s word occurred to him “in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, kings of Judah.” (Micah 1:1) The prophet’s familiarity with rural life is evident in the type of illustrations he uses to stress the points of his message.

Wednesday Lenten Worship and Dinner


Lent Family and Friends Dinner



No need to cook. Come and enjoy family dinner time with your friends at First Lutheran Church during the five Wednesdays of Lent. Tables will be set so that families may sit together. Conversation starters will be placed on each table to encourage communication within the family or between friends.

A short Lenten Service will be held following the meal. This year will feature a different drama each week done by members of the congregation. Following the service, the church sanctuary will be open for candlelight prayer and reflection. This will be optional, but will be a great opportunity for friends and family to offer up praise and prayers in the peace and quiet of the church.

In truth, these amazing messengers are everywhere, but they are not the kind of angels we hang on our walls or read about in a news magazine.


Come join us to find out.  What do they really look like? What do they do? And more....
