Immanuel Lutheran Church plans to conduct Wednesday services at 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the church, 605 S. Walnut St., Seymour, during the season of Lent, which begins Wednesday.
The 40 days of Lent are a special time for Christians to think deeply about the love of Christ that led him to suffer and die to give new life.
On Ash Wednesday, worshipers may receive the sign of the cross in the form of ashes on their forehead, a symbol of repentance and forgiveness, 15 minutes before the service.
This year’s theme for the 40 days of Lent is “Jesus as our Suffering Servant.”
Immanuel’s youth will serve Lenten dinners from 5 to 6:30 p.m. each Wednesday in the fellowship hall. Parents with preschoolers and kindergarten students may gather between services in the fellowship hall for a Lent for Little Ones craft activity led by Katy Rudzinski.
The 7 p.m. services will be broadcast live each Wednesday on AM 1390/FM 99.3. Call the church office for information on live-streaming of the service.
