“Good and Perfect Gifts” is the title of the Lenten Sermon Series offered at Immanuel Lutheran Church and Student Center DeKalb, 511 Russell Road, DeKalb.
Each sermon in the series takes up a specific gift from a text in Isaiah, interprets it through the life and times of Isaiah, and then creatively applies it to Christians as they make their Lenten journey from the cross to the empty tomb. People will not only become more familiar with the oft-neglected section of Isaiah, but they will be inspired to joyfully receive God’s good and perfect gifts flowing from our Savior’s bitter suffering and death that are freely given because of His Easter victory.
The series begins Ash Wednesday with services at 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. and will continue through March 20. The first sermon, “A Loving Embrace,” will be based on Isaiah 56: 7 to 8.
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League will host a soup and sandwich supper from 5:15 to 6:45 p.m. prior to the evening worship service. A free-will offering will be accepted.
