Lent 2021


Wednesdays in Lent:  “The Faith We Confess”

Six Wednesdays
February 17 ~ March 24
All Services Open to the Public

12:15 PM: Holy Communion (30 minutes)
6:30 PM: Vespers/Evening Prayer (40 minutes)

The Creed! It tells the story, comforts the soul, strengthens the mind, and teaches the truth! The Creed of the Church is the faith we confess, a source of continual nourishment for the believer. Each Wednesday in Lent, Pr. Johnson will unpack its power. You can listen to the this sermon series on the The Faith We Confess page.

Sundays in Lent: “The Well-Ordered Soul”

February 21 ~ March 28
All Services Open to the Public

Sundays at 9:00 and 11:00 AM
Saturdays at 5:15 PM

“For God is not a God of confusion but of peace” (1 Cor. 14:33).

God puts things in order that we may have peace “even if the earth gives way an the mountains fall into the sea” (Psalm 46:2). He begins by ordering our souls. Each Sunday in Lent, Pr. Gjerde will preach on a different feature of the well-ordered soul:

February 21: Understanding Desire
February 28: Enduring Suffering
March 7: Knowing Your Story
March 14: Walking the Path
March 21: Loving Mercy
Marc 28: Welcoming Humility

When our souls are well-ordered by God, we take God’s order with us into every situation, no matter the troubles we face.

You can listen to the this sermon series on the The Well-Ordered Soul page.

Lenten Study: “Six Psalms by Heart”

The psalms open up conversation with God! Just a few psalms, carried in the heart, can become lifetime friends and sources of wisdom and resilience. This Lent, you have the opportunity to learn six psalms with the pastors of Zion:

1) Send an email to lent@zionlutheranwausau.com, and you’ll receive a weekly “learn-by-heart” guide (starting Feb. 22)
2) Each Wednesday morning, the pastors will post an online video unpacking the psalm and showing how to use it.
