    What Is Lent All About?
    Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It is a season of penance, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption.

    From the perspective of The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod, "giving something up for Lent" is entirely a matter of Christian freedom. It would be wrong, from our perspective, for the church to make some sort of "law" requiring its members to "give something up for Lent," since the Scriptures themselves do not require this.

    If, on the other hand, a Christian wants to give something up for Lent as a way of remembering and personalizing the great sacrifice that Christ made on the cross for our sins, then that Christian is certainly free to do so--as long as he or she does not "judge" or "look down on" other Christians who do not choose to do this.

    Food for Your Body and Soul
    We will begin our Lenten Walk with Jesus on Ash Wednesday, March 5th, with a service including communion at 7:00 p.m. and continue each Wednesday (March 12th, 19th, and 26th, and April 2nd and 9th)

    Palm Sunday is April 13th, with service at 10:30 a.m. Maundy Thursday service will be held at 7:00 p.m. on April 17th with communion. And the Good Friday service, which falls on April 18th will be held at 7:00 p.m.

    Light suppers will be offered at 6:00 p.m. preceding the Lenten Services. Our OSL Youth Group, church families and friends will provide the meals. A freewill offering will be accepted, but not expected. Come and partake of the food and enjoy the fellowship at 6:00 p.m. Then stay for the meaningful worship at 7:00 p.m.
