Keeping Current

Lent Starts - Wednesday, 17 February 2021

“Quarantine.” It is a word that means 2-weeks of isolation for those who have been exposed to the coronavirus. It is really Latin for “40 days,” reminiscent of famous biblical moments. 40 is also the title of a worship and devotion series for the season of Lent at Our Savior Lutheran Church. Please join us for worship and for self-guided Bible devotion February 17-April 4 as we reflect on how that number is used in the scripture as a measure of hardship but to signify times of devotion, fasting, penance, praying and grace. Together we will “quarantine” as a family in the 40-days leading up to our celebration of Jesus’ resurrection and examine our own spiritual wellness as we prepare to one day see our Lord.

The Lenten and Holy Week worship schedule is as follows:

• Sundays at 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. (in-person)
• Sundays at 10:30 a.m. (livestream)
• Wednesdays, 2/17-3/24 at 12:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. (in-person)
• Maundy Thursday, 4/1 at 7 p.m. (in-person)
• Good Friday, 4/2 at 12:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. (in-person)
• Easter, 4/4 at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. (in-person)
• Easter, 4/4 at 10:30 a.m. (livestream)

You may pick up a copy of the 40 series devotional guide in the narthex (lobby) at church on Sunday, February 21. It will also be in the church website under the Grow tab. Please contact Pastor Tony by phone 954-473-6888 or by email tdurante@oursaviorplantation.org for more information.

Present at the Creation....

A New Sermon Series Starting February 14th

Someone once pointed out that the Bible is not a science book. Yes, Scripture is actually a written witness to God’s miracles that baffles scientists and astounds the empirical mind. A science book tells you how nature works. But the Bible teaches you how God works…to save you. It is a personal letter from a loving Father in heaven to you, his child on earth. Present at the Creation is a recurring preaching series where, periodically over the course of the year, we will hear witness testimony from the Book of Genesis to how God created us and what He has made to keep us alive. Come and hear the first installment titled, Light, on Sunday, February 14 at Our Savior Lutheran Church’s 8 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. worship services. Please contact the pastor at 954-473-6888 or by email tdurante@oursaviorplantation.org for more information.
