Wednesday Evening Lenten Prayer Services - start Feb. 24th @ 6:30pm

Join us online via Zoom starting Wednesday, Feb 24th at 6:30pm 

 Zoom (Meeting ID: 4159243782)

This year, our Lenten lectionary readings focus our baptismal reflections, on the covenants God made with God’s people. From the first readings each week we hear the familiar stories of the aftermath of the flood, God’s promise to Abraham and Sarah, the Ten Commandments, the healing sight of the serpent on a pole, and God’s promise to Jeremiah of a new covenant—written on the heart.

As we enter into and journey through the Season of Lent, may God deepen our understandings of ourselves as baptized children of God, people of the covenant, people who live our lives in relationship to God.

Please join us each Wednesday of Lent at 6:30pm.

 

 

 

Women's Bible Study

JOIN US as we study “Journeys with Angels

First Thursday of each month at 10am via ZOOM (ID: 4159243782)

 

The Bible features numerous encounters with angels who show up on an array of missions, from wielding a sword (Genesis 3:24), to rescuing a child (Genesis 22:11-12), to a mass choir singing, “Glory to God in the highest” (Luke 2:14).

Angels are not a major focus of holy Scripture, nor are they ever mentioned in our Christian creeds. Yet they show up with frequently and at pivotal moments in both Old and New Testaments. Church Reformer Martin Luther is quoted as saying, “If you picture the Bible to be a mighty tree and every word a little branch, I have shaken every one of these branches because I wanted to know what it was and what it meant.”

In this four-part study “Journeys with angels” we will shake those biblical branches, watch for angels and listen for God’s calls to action.

Session topics:

January: Looking up—New beginnings, awe-full, awesome angels

February: Repentance and route-changing angels

March: Loneliness, abandonment and holy comfort

April: Feasting angels

This series is presented by the Rev. Christa von Zychlin who has served Lutheran churches around the world through ELCA Global partnerships. Pastor Tom will lead the discussion via ZOOM.

Coronavirus Updates
We continue to monitor all state, county, churchwide and synod recommendations regarding reopening churches.  With the recent nationwide surge in COVID cases, and Marin County on the governor’s watch list due to rising cases, we will not be holding in-person worship in 2020. In the  meantime, we are offering our services live online using Zoom.  Services can be linked to from: https://zoom.us/j/4159243782.
 
We invite you to visit us on our Marin Lutheran Facebook page.  Our services as well as devotions are posted there.
 
If we can help anyone, please let us know.  For instance, we can run to the store and buy groceries, or pick up prescriptions and drop them off at your home.  You can email the church, marinlutheran@sbcglobal.net if there is anything we can do for you.
 
 
Taize Service

A service of song, silence and contemplation

 

Our Taize worship service is temporarily ON HOLD until we are able to gather together again in our sanctuary. 

 

This beautiful reflective service of music, scripture and prayer, originated at the Taize Community in the Burgundy region of France. Our service follows closely the original service (many of the hymns/chants we already sing in our services) with some minor adaptations. We will worship in quiet and candlelight.

The Taizé Community is an ecumenical Christian monastic fraternity in Taizé, Saône-et-Loire, Burgundy, France. It is composed of more than one hundred brothers, from Catholic and Protestant traditions, who originate from about thirty countries across the world. It was founded in 1940 by Brother Roger Schütz, a Reformed Protestant.

Join us.  All are welcome!
