Second Sunday in Lent
February 28, 2021

The Second covenant in this year's Lenten readings is the one made with Abraham and Sarah: God’s promise to make them the ancestors of many, with whom God will remain in everlasting covenant. Paul says this promise comes to all who share Abraham's faith in the God who brings life into being where there was no life. We received this baptismal promise of resurrection life in faith. Sarah and Abraham receive new names as a sign of the covenant, and we too get new identities in baptism, as we put on Christ. (Sunday and Seasons 2020 Augsburg fortress)

We have returned to in-person services. We will still follow all of the precautions that we used in the past. We will still require masks to be worn in the building and we will ask that you social distance when in the building. We will take your temperature and ask you the Covid questions when entering the building. The hand sanitizer dispensers are available in several locations in the building. We have marked off seats in the Nave that will not be used so that we social distance safely. There still will be no singing or communion at this time. We will continue to post a weekly service on the Facebook Page and send out the emails and US Mail for those who are not on Facebook or have a computer. Things have been very trying to say the least and you have heard it so many times now. We still are the church and the Word of God continues to the end of time so we will continue sharing that word as best as we are able.

You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture to keep yourselves strong and able to overcome any concerns that you are facing.
