Midweek Lent Services: On Wednesday evenings, we have Midweek Lent services at 7:00 PM. These services have a specific focus on our Savior’s journey to the cross for us and our salvation. This year on Wednesday evenings we are following the series: “Places of the Passion”. Each week we will reflect on a place that Jesus visited in the last 72 hours of his life. We hope you can join us for these special services!
Midweek Lent Dinners: On Wednesday evenings before our Midweek Lent services, we will have a potluck dinner at 6:00 PM. Each week we are looking for volunteers to help by bringing soup, sandwiches, a dish, or dessert to pass. Everyone is welcome to join us! If you have any questions, please speak with Peter Moeri.
All women are welcome to join us for Bible study on Tuesday, February 27 at 6 pm at Kiersten Nash’s house: 3590 Getchell Rd, Hermantown. We hope to see you there! We will be meeting every 4th Tuesday of each month, so if you cannot make it this time, we hope you can join us for future meetings. If you have any questions, please reach out to Kely Dunsmoor or Kiersten Nash.

This will be on July 28-30th in Pewaukee, WI. Registration opens soon. Please contact Kely Dunsmoor if you are interested in attending this event with a group from SOTH.
Altar Flowers: Fresh flowers have been added to the altar area to give God glory and beautify the sanctuary over the past few months. Thank you to everyone who has signed up so far. The chart on the bulletin board by the offices has been updated, and members are encouraged to sign up for a Sunday. Our flower volunteer, Renee Graen, will purchase and place the flowers on the altar. Please indicate if the flowers are in memory of someone or a special occasion.
