Announcements for the week of March 12th to March 18th

"Giving up...."

Called Do you miss the privileged position which the Christian Church used to have in American society? Some Christians do.

Yet our Savior himself never guarantees that we will be in positions of power… or that other people will respect our faith… or that we will be in charge of a country’s morals.

Instead, as we continue our Lenten weekend “Journey with Jesus” next Saturday and Sunday, we hear Jesus talking about our “giving up” being in charge so that we can serve others as Jesus did.

We’ll focus on Mark 10:35-45 and think about what it means to follow Jesus during Lent.

You’re invited to read those verses in preparation as we consider what it means to “Journey with Jesus… to Give Up.”

Readings For Next Week:   Jeremiah 31:31-34    Hebrews 5:1-10    Mark 10:35-45

"Wednesday Lenten Worship"

Wednesday Lent Worship“A Bleeding Heart” will be the readers theater drama at next Wednesday’s Noontime Prayer at 11:30 am and Evening Prayer (beginning with the candlelight Service of Light) at 7 pm.

As juror selection continues for the “trial” of Jesus, we hear a prospective jury member being examined who is so caring that she seems to tolerate anything… causing us to think about our own commitment to Christ.

It’s the latest in our series of dramatic presentations on “How Would You Judge Jesus?”  Services last about 35 minutes and include readings from Scripture, sermonic comment and thematic hymns.

Our weekend worship schedule offers three types of services:

Galilee Lutheran Church is located two miles east of where Maryland Route 100 merges into Mountain Road. Simply head toward the Chesapeake (follow the signs towards Gibson Island ). Halfway to Downs Park, you'll see us on the left side of the road, nestled in the woods. We'd love to offer you Christian hospitality and service in the name of our risen Savior and Lord, Jesus. May He guide you! ~ Pastor Hank Simon
