Christmas Day

Yes, we have a Christmas Day Divine Service at 10:00 AM.

 

God tents among us

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)

Meditation:
Press this child, born of the Virgin Mary, who is also God’s son, close to your heart. When you have gotten this, then you are secure and well-protected against all the treacherous ambushes and dangerous attacks of the Devil. If you let this child, born of the Virgin Mary, out of your sight and in the meantime give in to speculation to understand the Divine, you will never recognize God. Believe me in this because I have also been to this school where I thought I was among the angels but found myself much more among devils. Learn to be wise from my misfortune and come down here with the Son who descended for this reason to you so that you would recognize God in him. “Wherever I am,” he says, “there my servant shall also be.” (John 12:26)

Martin Luther, Walch Edition, Vol. 6, p. 186

Creator of the Stars of Night Advent 2015

Wednesdays during Advent we will look at this hymn from Lutheran Service Book.

Join us for the Divine Service as we learn more about the Creator of the Stars of Night:

 

Creator of the stars of night,

Thy people’s everlasting light,

O Christ, Redeemer, save us all,

And hear Thy servants when they call

 

Thou, grieving that the ancient curse

Should doom to death a universe,

Hast found the healing, full of grace,

To cure and save our ruined race.

 

Thou cam’st, the Bridegroom of the bride,

As drew the world to evening-tide;

The spotless Victim all divine,

Proceeding from a virgin shrine.

 

 

At Whose dread Name, majestic now,

All knees must bend, all hearts must bow;

And things celestial Thee shall own,

And things terrestrial, Lord alone.

 

O Thou, whose coming is with dread,

To judge the living and the dead,

Preserve us from the ancient foe

While still we dwell on earth below.

 

To God the Father and the Son

And Holy Spirit, Three in One,

Praise, honor, might, and glory be

From age to age eternally. Amen.

Lent

What is Lent?

To prepare for the celebration of the Resurrection of Our Lord on Easter Sunday, we take a season of 40 days to focus on our need to repent of our sins and our need of a Savior from sin. This is the season of Lent.

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday. The name, Ash Wednesday, comes from the ancient custom of imposing ashes on the worshippers. The pastor marks the forehead with a cross of ashes. Ashes are traditionally made from palm branches left from the previous Palm Sunday.

During this season worship services are penitential and solemn, and many churches add special Midweek services. Churches are decorated in violet, the color of royalty and repentance, reminding us to turn away from our sin and toward Christ for His mercy and forgiveness. During Lent we do not use “Alleluia.” Some churches even observe the ritual of “burying” the Alleluia at the beginning of Lent, with the joyous anticipation of its return on Easter Sunday.

Many fast, or give up eating a particular meal in order to devote time to prayer and studying God’s Word. Some may “give up something for Lent.” Similar to fasting, the person gives up something they enjoy as a reminder to pray and of the sacrifice that Jesus made for us.

Trinity has special Mid-week Lenten Divine Services on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM. You may also join us for a fellowship time before the Divine Service with a Soup Supper which starts at 6:00 PM.
