2017 Lenten Services

Lenten church services at Grace Lutheran Church in Tomahawk are at 1:00 and 7:00 PM. Join us for a soup lunch before the services starting at 11:30 AM and 5:30 PM. During Lent, we will use Martin Luther’s Small Catechism to center us on Jesus.  Each Wednesday we will enter into the six chief parts of this Catechism.  Come and be centered in God’s amazing Good News for you: 

Ten Commandments: this will form our confession of sin.
Apostles’ Creed:
Luther’s explanation will inform this ancient statement of belief.   Baptism:  the sermon March 8 & 15 will explain God’s claim on you.
Confession:
the sermon March 22 will explain God’s forgiveness offered to you. Communion: the sermon March 29 & April 5 will explain God’s gifts given.

Young Adults in Global Mission – December Special Offering

sarah-vatne-2Sarah Vatne is the designated person to receive Grace’s December Special Offering. As a Young Adult in Global Mission (YAGM) she is asked to raise $4000 and the ELCA provides the other $9,000. Grace’s support given in her name will assist her with her $4000 with the remainder towards the $9000  to assist all 84 YAGMs placed around the globe. See Sarah’s blog of amazing pictures and  story –  https://sarahtosa.wordpress.com/

YAGMs are 21-29 years of age, carefully placed and supported by the ELCA, to be about God’s mission in an “accompaniment” style, in a foreign land. Sarah is placed at  Empangeni, South Africa  working at a “Place of Safety”, which has a boarding school and activity center, which houses and educates children who have been orphaned, abandoned, or abused. As her  Zulu language skills improve she will work directly with the kids who live there.  You can also support Sarah by going to her Giving Page:   http://support.elca.org/site/TR/Events/General?px=1038451&pg=personal&fr_id=1181
