ST. DAVID’S LUTHERAN ANNOUNCEMENTS
February 18, 2018

 

MAKING SENSE OF THE CROSS IS THE THEME FOR OUR LENTEN WEDNESDAY WORSHIP AND STUDY, FEBRUARY 21-MARCH 21. There are two options for participating:  Wednesday mornings 10:15 – 11:30 A.M. or Wednesday Evening worship at 7:00 P.M.  Learn how each Gospel writer looks at the crucifixion of Jesus.  Hear the three schools of thought that have strongly influenced the way Christians think about the cross.  We’ll conclude with a fourth way of understanding the cross – as an actual event in history and in our own lives. The sign-up sheet for the morning session is on the bulletin board outside of the office.  There is no need to sign up for the evening worship.
