​Worship during Lent

  • Lent Midweek Worship -- On Wednesdays at 7:00 pm we will examine the connection between the biblical narrative and the stories of our lives that come together in God's story of enduring love. During worship, people will share their personal stories as they relate to a particular theme for the evening, and we will encounter the different ways the Bible speaks to that theme. Dates are Feb 21 and 28, March 7, 14, and 21.
  • A brief service of communion which will include a rite of healing and anointing will be held at noon on Wednesdays, Feb 21, 28, Mar 7, 14, and 21.
  • A Lenten Journey: Biblical Stations of the Cross -- At noon on Fridays, Feb 16, 23; March 2, 9, 16, and 23: Lent is a reflective time that is guided by our lectionary, liturgy, and hymns in our worship. In our personal devotions there are many options and journeying the way of the cross is a tradition that has its earliest forms observed and recorded in the late 4th century. Join Pastor Lorrel Strom-Jensen at noon on Fridays during Lent to journey through the Biblical Stations of the Cross. Through scripture, hymns, and prayers we will follow the way of the cross and ponder the connections to this path that we experience daily in our own lives.

Welcome to St. Paul's!
