This Week at Calvin
Calvin Christian Reformed Church, located at 326 7th St SE in Le Mars, IA, observes the 3rd Sunday of Lent by extinguishing the 3rd candle of the Lenten Triad. Each Lenten Sunday we snuff out another purple candle until we get to Good Friday, when the white Christ Candle is also extinguished. On Easter morning, we will relight the Christ candle to symbolize Christ's resurrection and Him being the Light of the World. A litany of confession will be read responsively during this observance. "This Little Light of Mine will be sung as a song of response.
This Sunday, March 24th, Pastor Rev. Dr. Nevada DeLapp will use the text from Luke 13: 1 -9 as his message on "Repentance." Other scripture readings include Isaiah 55: 1 - 9 read by Glenda Habben, Psalm 63: 1 -8 read responsively the Pastor and congregation and 1 Corinthians 10: 1 - 13 read by John Petersen.
This Sunday is a very special Sunday where we witness infant baptism at Calvin. Praise God for his blessings!
Alyssa Grigsby will provide the music to lead worship. She will be playing the prelude, offertory and accompanying the hymns on the grand piano. The hymns include "Here I Am To Worship," "Baptized in Water", "Ancient Words", "There Is A Redeemer" and "Marvelous Grace."
