Opportunities for Public/Private Confession During Holy Week
During Holy Week, we will be offering a few opportunities for Confession and Absolution – either in a group setting and/or privately. Private Confession personally proclaims and delivers to the individual what Christ has accomplished and gives out of his abundant grace and mercy. The individual then can rest assured that his sins are forgiven before God in heaven.
On Wednesday, April 5, we will be holding a Corporate Confession and Absolution Service at 12:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. This service has a general confession of sins and an individual absolution kneeling at the communion rail. Along with the benefits of this service it is also a great opportunity for those who be a bit uncomfortable when it comes to partaking of individual/private confession and absolution to experience this personal absolution in a group setting.
Availing yourself of both private confession and absolution and the corporate confession and absolution service are encouraged and great blessings from God during this important week of the Church Year and anytime as well.
Private confessions will also be available during Holy Week on April 5, 6 and 7 from 11 – 11:45a.m and 6– 6:45p.m. These will be 15 minutes each, and are available by signing up via the Sign Up button.
A more detailed explanation will be in our April newsletter. If you have any other questions, contact the church office.
From the Pulpit: Christ for You
God shows you mercy and takes care of you in body and soul. The Lord is yours and you are his. He takes care of you in all circumstances even as he took care of his people since the world began. The same God who rained down manna and quail is the same God who worked the miracle in John 6. This God is who has redeemed you. He knows you and has called you by name in the waters of Holy Baptism. He gives you your daily bread. He hears and answers your prayers. He guards, keeps, and upholds you with his righteous right hand. He forgives you and shows you mercy.
