Lent 2024 Mid-day Crosby area Worship

   Crosby-area pastors and churches are hosting a mid-day Worship and meal throughout Lent. These take place at 12:00pm, followed by a simple lunch at 12:30. Each place plans its own style of worship with a message around the “I AM” statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John.
    Offerings will be gathered for the Crosby Ministerial Fund to be used to care for transient persons in partnership with the Crosby and Deerwood police.

Lent 2024: The Faithful Promises of God

  At its heart, the season of Lent is about returning to God and finding that God is faithful. This year in the lectionary (the cycle of Scriptures we read on Sundays), we get to hear the faithful promises of the loving God through the Hebrew Bible (our Old Testament). On Wednesday evenings, ELCA pastors from around the Aitkin area will focus us on the promises that God makes to folks like Noah, Abram and Sarai, to the people newly freed from Egypt, the covenant of the 10 Commandments, and the covenant to put new hearts within us.

Join us Wednesdays at 5:15pm for a meal and 6:30pm for worship with Holden Evening Prayer and the Faithful Promises of God. If you would like to prepare a meal, bring bread or dessert for 30-40 people, please sign up on the kiosk in the entry.
