If we are experiencing or the possibility of Nasty Weather (ice, sleet, snow, freezing rain, etc), we may determine that it is not safe to hold worship services. We will try to make the decision on weather to cancel services in a timely manner. We do not want anyone out on unsafe roads. HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
+ Check to see if Our Lord's Lutheran Church in Maryville, IL is on the rolling scroll of cancellations on one of the following Television Station: KMOC-TV/NEWS 4, KTVI/Fox 2, News 11, or KSDK News Channel 5 Storm Watch.
+ Check for an E-mail. A Congregational e-mail may be sent out regarding possible cancellations.
Even if you don't see Our Lord's listed or you don't get an e-mail, but you feel that you personally deem it unsafe to venture out in the weather, please stay at home and indoors. Your safety is our most important concern!
There will be simple evening worship services using Holden Evening Prayer liturgy on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm.
February 28 Focus: REPENTANCE
Other Wednesday Evening Services are on March 7, 14 & 27 beginning at 6:30
Using short dramatic readings from the book “Watch & Pray: Meditations in Dramatic Form for the Season of Lent” by Neil Ellis Orts.
+ Sign Ups for all Services are available in Worship Center Narthex. Sign up for one or more services.
Services both Saturday & Sunday at Our Lord's. Themes include "True Living" - Mark 8:31-38 "He (Jesus) called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them,'If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.'" - Mark 8:34 To follow Jesus, we must be willing to experience all types of persecution, self-denial and hardship. Being a Christian is not the easy path. It is, however, the most rewarding path of eternal life and love.
