Sermon: "Lights! Camera! Action!" + Pastor on Mark 9: 2-13
The Season of Epiphany of the Church Year ends with the spotlight finally being placed on Jesus. Soon He will no longer benefit from being incognito. In just a few short weeks, His ministry will reach its final goal. The prophets words will be fulfilled as they shout: "Lights, Camera, Action," this week's sermon based upon Mark 9: 2-13. Join us this Sunday as we celebrate the Feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord.

Lenten Mid-Week Sermon Series
Jonah: A Story of Survival + Part One – "God is Calling"
The solemn season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday soup supper and vespers beginning at 6 PM. This year's mid-week vesper sermon series is entitled: Jonah: A Story of Survival and will continue throughout this penitential season. Join us this Ash Wednesday at Love Lutheran Church as Pastor Henry presents the first in our Lenten Series, "God is Calling!" a sermon based on Jonah 1: 1-3.
Mar 9 Lent I Exodus 7: 14-25 Romans 2: 12-29 Mark 1: 12-13
Sermon: "Tempted" + Pastor on Mark 1: 13
The glory of the Mount of Transfiguration from last week's sermon has given way to the walk towards another mount – Calvary. For the next several weeks, we will retrace the steps Jesus took on His way to the cross, steps that included being subject to all the sufferings of man. We begin with Jesus experiencing man's dilemma, the source of man's downfall – temptation. This Sunday, Pastor Henry will present a sermon entitled "Tempted!" and based on Mark 1: 13.
Mar 16 Lent II Exodus 8: 1-32 Romans 3: 1—8 Mark 11: 12-26
Sermon: "Cleanse Me, O God" + Pastor on Mark 11: 15, 17
My House shall be a house of prayer! So shouted Jesus as He drove the peddlers and moneychangers out of the Temple. We have often been called temples of the Holy Spirit. Do we need to be cleansed as the ancient Temple in Jerusalem was? Do we peddle things that are not of God, and exchange the treasures of heaven for the tarnished lives of sinful man? Pastor Henry will explore these question in a sermon based on Mark 11:15-17, and entitled: "Cleanse me, O God."
Mar 23 Lent III Exodus 9: 1-35 II Thessalonians 1:1-12 Mark 14: 1-9
Sermon: "The Plot Thickens" + Pastor on Mark 14: 1-2
Healing people on the Sabbath, preaching that the kingdom of God was at hand, insulting and belittling the Scribes and Pharisees at almost every opportunity, entering Jerusalem like a king in defiance of the governing authorities, killing business at the Temple... Jesus was not popular, at least not among the rulers of the day. Something had to be done. He had to die. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Henry unveils the extent of the plot to kill Jesus in a sermon entitled, "The plot thickens," based on Mark 14: 1-2.
Mar 30 Lent IV Exodus 10:1-20 II Thessalonians 2:1-17 Mark 14: 32-52
Sermon: "Betrayed" + Pastor on Mark 14: 44-46
Betrayed by a kiss. How horrible to have the Prince of Peace and the Lord of Love betrayed and handed over to those who hate Him with the very sign of love, a kiss. But that is what we do – we smile at our co-workers and then stab them in the back through gossip. We profess our friendship, our loyalty, until it conflicts with our agendas. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Henry depicts Judas in our lives through the sermon: "Betrayed!" based on Mark 14: 44-46.
Plan to be with us on…
