Where? Glory of Christ Lutheran 4040 County Rd. 101 Plymouth, MN 55447. Church office: 763-478-6031
All materials will be provided. Refreshments and lunch will be served.
When? Saturday May 19th, 2018. Office of Matins 8:30am. Workshop begins at 9am. Closing devotion at 3pm.
Why? The Lord's Divine Service to us prepares and equips us to die - to self, in service to the neighbor, and when our last hour comes. This workshop will consider how the gifts of Christ to us in the Divine Service strengthen us in faith toward God and love toward the neighbor both in our living and our dying. In God's giving and our receiving, we learn what it means to be truly human and, having seen the Lord's salvation, to depart in peace according to His Word.

“Workshops of Lutheran Liturgy” are intended primarily for lay-people of the Lutheran church. The Christian in the pew is most affected by the worship forms and liturgies employed in the chancel. These Christians would be well served to attend these stimulating and informative workshops.
