The Season of Lent began with Ash Wednesday on March 6.

The 40 days in Lent are a time of repentance, prayer, and renewal of faith in preparation for the Paschal Feast of Easter.

Ash Wednesday

A special Ash Wednesday Chapel Service, including the optional Imposition of Ashes, for Resurrection Lutheran School. RLS Chapel Worship Services are public worship services and all are invited to attend.

7:00 pm
A special Ash Wednesday Worship Service, Holy Communion will be celebrated, and the Imposition of Ashes will be offered.

Lenten Midweek Worship

Wednesdays at 6:10 pm
Lenten Vespers will be held in the Sanctuary on Wednesdays at 6:10 pm - March 13, 20, 27, and April 3, 10.

Theme for the Lenten Worship Services is Behold the Man.

Pilate’s command to the crowd at Jesus’ crucifixion speaks an incredible truth—Jesus was indeed man. More specifically, He was God and man. Jesus had a body. He had a nose. Knees. Toes. Bones. Fingerprints. He hungered, prayed, and bled. He had a mother, He drank wine, He was baptized. This Lenten season, behold the Man—the Man who suffered, died, and rose again. The Man who lived a perfect life and defeated death. The Man whose Death led to your Life.
