Although the Lutheran Church is among the largest of Protestant bodies, Living Word itself is a small and intimate congregation. For more than 50 years Living Word has included a special community of people brought together by God’s grace who have committed themselves to the mission of: LIVING THE WORD – SPREADING THE WORD.
We invite you to join us for worship on Sundays at 11 am!
Each Sunday we gather under God’s Word of compassion and hope and around the altar celebrating the saving power of Jesus the Christ in Holy Communion. Although our worship is typically Liturgical in structure, (following the format and ancient practice of the Christian Church), our style is relaxed and informal. Worship at Living Word includes a blend of both traditional and contemporary music, and has the flavor of a big family gathered around a table to celebrate an important life event (which is pretty much what is happening!) And of course, the family would not be complete without children! There is a nursery available, but we love to have children participate and we try to make it engaging for them as well.
Fifth Sunday in Lent
In today’s gospel Jesus reveals his power over death by raising Lazarus from the dead. The prophet Ezekiel prophesies God breathing new life into dry bones. To those in exile or living in the shadows of death, these stories proclaim God’s promise of resurrection. In baptism we die with Christ that we might also be raised with him to new life. At the Easter Vigil we will welcome the newly baptized as we remember God’s unfailing promise in our baptism.
The dry bones of Israel brought to life
I wait for you, O Lord; in your word is my hope. (Ps. 130:5)
