Midweek Lenten Worship Services
“With Awe & Love”: A midweek Lenten Series
based on Luther’s Small Catechism
For the second time in as many years, Pastor Ben, from First Lutheran, and
Pastor Kevin, from OSLC – with the blessing of the leadership from both churches – will be preaching and presiding over combined midweek Lenten Worship Services beginning with the first midweek Lenten Service on Wednesday, March 8th.
Our Midweek Lenten Worship Theme is entitled With Awe & Love. The year 2017 marks the international observance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. In honor of that anniversary, this midweek Lenten series is built around Luther’s Small Catechism.
The Small Catechism was designed as a teaching tool of the faith, not just within the church but also in the home. Martin Luther intended for the home to be the place where faith was first shared and taught. To that end he created the Small Catechism: a simple explanation of the Ten Commandments, the Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Sacraments.
The Schedule for our Midweek Lenten Worship Schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, March 22nd The Lord’s Prayer Service at First Lutheran
Wednesday, March 29th Baptism Service at OSLC
Wednesday, April 5th Holy Communion at First Lutheran
The long-standing, favorite liturgy of Marty Haugen’s Holden Evening Prayer will be used at BOTH churches; whichever church is hosting for the evening, the other church’s Pastor will be preaching (Pastor Ben will preach at OSLC, Pastor Kevin will preach at First Lutheran). The church hosting worship for the evening ALSO hosts the soup supper (beginning at 5:30 pm).
ALL MIDWEEK LENTEN SERVICES BEGIN AT 6:30 pm with a SOUP SUPPER EACH EVENING BEGINNING AT 5:30 pm.
SAVE THE DATE: White Elephant Sale – May 6th, 2017
Welcome to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church (OSLC)! Upon entering, you will notice the beautiful sanctuary with stained glass windows depicting parables of Christ and the large crucifix hanging above the altar. Friendly congregational members will greet you, and as you sit in the pews, our music will fill your soul! We have an active Temple Choir and also a worship band for a more contemporary sound. Music is emphasized within each service, and the sermons will speak to your heart and feed your soul while creating a deeper relationship with God.
Our church’s mission is A Community transformed by Christ, to be Christ in the World. We invite you to join us to become “the hands and feet of Christ”. Our ownership of this mission is shown in outreach through our Food Shelf, Clothes Closet, Habitat for Humanity, and God’s work. Our hands. Sunday. The Food Shelf is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 1:00-2:30. Our clothes closet can be accessed through appointment only by calling the church office.
Our worship service provides opportunities for you and your family to grow in your Christian faith. Children of all ages are welcome during worship and are invited to join Pastor Kevin for a Children’s Message each week. After service, during the school year, children may attend Sunday School while you enjoy coffee, goodies and fellowship with parishioners downstairs. We partner with First Lutheran (another ELCA church in Hibbing) in our Confirmation and Youth Ministry, as well as some congregational worship and seasonal events through the year. Baptism and First Communion are joyous events which precede Confirmation. Students in grades 3-11 are involved in our Confirmation program. Youth have opportunities through our church to participate in Bible camps, vacation bible school, BWCA canoe trips, national youth gatherings, church services…. On average, OSLC sends over 70 youth to Bible camp each year.
OSLC has a long and rich history of service to the community of Hibbing and the world. Both young and old participate in potluck dinners, Lutefisk suppers, pasty bake fundraisers, the fall bazaar with much of the profits benefiting ministries such as the Salvation Army, Lutheran Social Service, local Bible Camps, and worldwide missionary support.
For over 60 years, we have held the White Elephant Sale in the spring, which provides clothing, furniture, appliances, sporting goods, tools, bicycles, and many other items for inexpensive prices to our community and the surrounding communities.
OSLC is a “community safe space” offering the use of our facilities to Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Lutheran Social Services, Advocates for Family Peace, among others.
OSLC was formed in 1903 by Norwegian immigrants under the name “Tabor” with 23 members. It officially became known as Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in 1904. The church held a groundbreaking ceremony in July of 1952 with the cornerstone of our present church laid in October of that same year.
Please call our church office with any questions you may have. Our staff is pleased to help you!
