Luke and Acts tell us that  Jesus appeared to many of his disciples during the 40 days following his resurrection, and then he ascended into the clouds. This time of Holy Communion reminds us that Jesus will return and his coming is near. It is also a reminder of his Holy Spirit at work in us and in the world to prepare for that triumphant day.

This service includes time for worship, a short sermon, testimonies, followed by an opportunity to receive individual prayer from trained prayer teams. (June 10 is generational healing.)


May 20 • Choral Evensong
5-6 p.m. • Holy Trinity Lutheran Church
Join our choir for an uplifting service of Choral Evensong including hymns, scripture, anthems, and chanted psalms and prayers. A great treasure of the Anglican tradition, Evensong is a peace-inducing service in which the 'song' of voices sounding together in harmony is heard at the 'evening' point between the active day and restful night, allowing worshippers a space for restful contemplation of God’s truth.
