Lent ImageWorship in Lent and Holy Week 2020

Ash Wednesday (February 26): spoken liturgy at 12 Noon; Soup at 5:30 PM followed by a Spanish service at 6:00 PM; sung liturgy at 7:30 PM. Each service will include Holy Communion and imposition of ashes.

Sundays in Lent (March 1 – 29): Holy Communion worship services at 10:30 AM and 2:00 PM (Spanish) reflect the quieter, more solemn season, while still celebrating Christ’s presence among us. Each week we see echoes of our own baptismal renewal as Jesus contends with forces of sin, evil, and death in his journey to the cross and resurrection.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Augustana Lutheran Church began video-only services on March 15

Palm/Passion Sunday (April 5)

The Triduum (Three Days) – the heart of the Christian story, of our faith, of our life, meant to flow as one worship service in three parts:

Maundy Thursday (April 9)
* This service was broadcast at 7:00pm
Forgiveness and remembrance of the Last Supper. The heart of the Maundy Thursday liturgy is Jesus’ commandment to love one another. At the end of the service, the altar is stripped as we prepare for the solemnity of Good Friday.

Good Friday (April 10)
* This service will be broadcast at 7:00pm
You are invited to pause in adoration of the Cross – Christ’s self-sacrificial gift that enables us to live.

The Easter Vigil (April 11)
* This service will be broadcast at 7:00pm
The culmination of our three day journey with Jesus, this service celebrates the light of Christ, we hear the stories of our ancestors in the faith, and affirm our baptism into Christ through which we are transformed with new life.

The Resurrection of Our Lord (Easter Sunday, April 12)
* This service will be broadcast at 10:30am
Festival worship with glorious special music as we celebrate the Resurrection in the grandest services of the year. Join us as we give thanks for the new life we have in Christ’s rising. Alleluia!
