Gratitude for God's Geographic Grace - 2015 Lenten Series

Gratitude for God’s Geographic Grace

Join us for a Lenten journey through God’s Geographic Grace!

John 19: 16-18 "Then he delivered Him to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus and led Him away. And He, bearing His cross, went out to a place called the place of the skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, where they crucified Him, and two others with Him - one on either side and Jesus in the middle."
Beginning Ash Wednesday, February 18, Berea Lutheran Church of Inver Grove Heights and Grace Lutheran Church of Fridley will begin our Lenten season at 6:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. respectively. Our series this year will be “Gratitude for God’s Geographical Grace” with a pulpit exchange involving area active and retired CLC pastors.

This journey will take us through the Fearless Valley, past the Life-Blooming Desert, over the Mountains of Mercy, near the Midst of the Waterfalls, into the Sin-Drowning Sea, and refreshed at the Soul-Satisfying Stream, to kneel at the Hill of Golgotha.

Amidst your busy schedules, why not prioritize these services and spend some time meditating on the Passion Story and the great truths of our salvation found in it. All are invited to join us for a “Soup And Sandwich Supper” will preceding the service beginning at 5:30 pm. in the Berea Activity Center or 6:00 pm in the Grace fellowship hall.
