Lenten Services - “Repent: Turn to Jesus!”
The theme for the upcoming Lenten services which will begin on Wednesday, March 1.
Services will be held each Wednesday--3:15 and 7:00 pm.
The theme “Repent: Turn to Jesus!” flows from the critical questions that occasioned the Ninety-Five Theses and thereby the Lutheran Reformation: What is the essence of repentance? Is repentance the act of “doing penance” – making satisfaction for sin? Or is repentance something else entirely? Repentance, Luther came to see, is God’s gracious gift to us. Luther proclaimed the biblical truth that the believer’s entire life is a life of repentance – a daily return to the saving waters of Baptism.
This Lenten season there will again be a rotation of pastors:
Pastor Paul Fritz, St. John’s, East Bloomfield; Pastors Paul Bowe and Ron Siemers, Immanuel, Waupaca; and Pastors Lemke and Schafer, St. Peter, Weyauwega. The individual themes for each of the special services are as follows: 1) Repent:
Turn to Jesus and Not to Yourself; 2) Repent: Turn to Jesus When You Face Temptation; 3) Repent: Turn to Jesus; Do Not Turn Away; 4) Repent: Turn to Jesus; He Holds the Key to Heaven; 5) Repent: Turn to Jesus; He Longs to Forgive You; and 6) Repent: Turn to Jesus; He Changes Your Life. These services provide us with wonderful opportunities to journey with our Savior
to Calvary as he shows us the full extent of his love for sinners.
