This year we are excited to announce a faith and art series for Lent. Come and see some of your favorite stories come alive. Explore the symbolism beyond the biblical story that can add deep meaning to paintings and other works of art. Grow in your faith each week as we focus on a different biblical story and work of art. The final week we will create one large community art piece (no talent needed). The series will begin on Wednesday, March 6th at 7 pm and then continue on Tuesday starting March 12th at 6:30 pm through Easter Sunday. Tuesday midweek will offer family friendly meals available beginning at 6 pm with vegetarian and gluten-free option available.
Due to inclement weather, worship has been cancelled. Please join Pastor Sara on the Joy Reigns Lutheran Church Facebook page at 9:30 am ET for a LIVE Snow Worship Experience.
You’ll need a cup of water and a Bible if you have one.
Today’s reading is Luke 3: 15-17, 21-22
As the people were filled with expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Messiah, John answered all of them by saying, “I baptize you with water; but one who is more powerful than I is coming; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.”
Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, and the Holy Spirit descended upon him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”
Looking forward to being together, even if it is not in person.
