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.

Where: The basement of First Lutheran Church

When: Wednesdays, 
February 21, 28, March 7, 14, and 21

Who: Everyone interested 
in this unique experience

Time: Dinner 6:00—6:30; Service 6:30—7:00;

Time for Prayer and Reflection after 7:00

Angels are everywhere.

On TV, In the news, we even decorate our homes and clothing with angels.

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....
