The heartbeat of Maundy Thursday is Jesus’ commandment to love one another. In washing his disciples’ feet, Jesus shows his example of what it means to humbly care for one another – especially those pushed to the margins – and to follow his example. At the Lord’s table, we remember Jesus’ sacrifice, offering ourselves in love for the life of the world, all while remembering the Passover feast set before us.

Longest Night Service: A Service of Comfort and Hope Thursday, December 20th at 7pm

While Advent is a season of hope and Christmas is a season of joy, not everyone feels hopeful or like celebrating. Grief, illness, aging, depression, loneliness, unemployment, loss and stress are magnified. The Longest Night service provides a time and place of solace where, in our sorrow, we still long for hope. We come together seeking healing and room to share grief, sadness, loneliness or confusion when these emotions feel out of place during the holidays. Join us for a time of healing, song, and prayer, Thursday, December 20th at 7pm. May the hope of the Christ child sustain us through this darkness together, that we may shine again.

COMMITMENT WEEKEND - OCTOBER 20 & 21

  • Edgebrook Lutheran Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This fall, we've heard about ELC's Core Ministries and what it means to live as a disciple of Jesus Christ. Part of that discipleship is investing in God's mission here at ELC and its ministries through your time, talent, and treasures. It's through these gifts that we can fulfill ELC's mission to transform lives by sharing a saving faith in Jesus Christ and by living the gospel through service. 

During worship this weekend, we invite you to write down your 2019 financial pledge to God's mission and the ministries of ELC on a commitment card. We do this exercise of faith annually, not only because it helps us be good stewards of our resources by creating a wise and realistic budget for 2019, but also because we want to faithfully respond to God's abundance with gratitude and give back to Jesus' mission being carried out through you at ELC.

We encourage you to pray, discern, and listen for God's response, and to give from the heart. We thank you for your faithful and continued support of the ministries and mission of Edgebrook Lutheran Church, and of God's mission in the world.
