Worship Services

We will be hosting virtual morning and evening prayer services throughout lent.

The morning Matins service will be posted as a podcast every Wednesday in lent at 8am, and will be available both here on our website, and through your preferred podcast app.

You are also welcome to join us live on Facebook every Wednesday in Lent at 7:30pm for a Lenten Evening Prayer service, or watch the videos here on our website using the player below.

Community Activities

Wednesday Night Dinners

February 24, March 3, 10, 17 and 24th from 6:00-6:30pm over Zoom. Five popular Wednesday Night meals are on the menu. See the Bridge for the recipe of the week. Make those or switch it up if you want something different—feel free to make whatever dietary adjustments you need to for your household.

Here is how it will go:

  1. Each household will make their own dinner. If you aren’t quite ready to eat by 6:00pm or are done eating, no problem, just join on in for the conversation.
  2. Log into Zoom—Teresa will send out the link, to those who have signed up, by the Monday night before.
  3. After we gather for an opening prayer, participants will be put into table groups for a time of conversation and catching up. Around 6:30pm we will come back together for Birthdays/Anniversaries, then you can finish your meal on your own.
  4. Sign up here, or email Teresa Handy at teresa.handy@smlutheran.org.

Looking forward to “seeing” you once again on Wednesday nights, even if it is over Zoom!
