flw_introFaith-Lilac Way Lutheran Church welcomes you to join us here on the web, and to join us in worship. We’re a congregation of the ELCA, located on Welcome Avenue in Robbinsdale, Minnesota.

We like to live up to our address, so come and visit … and be Welcome.

4/2 – Maundy Thursday

Services will be held at 12 noon at Robbins Way and at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary

This is a service To Remember …

Remember as we celebrate the Lord’s Last Supper.
Remember the Lord’s Commandment (Maundy means Commandment) to Love
one another as He has loved us.
Remember the Lord’s call to Love and Serve one another through the anointing of hands for service.
Remember the Garden of Gethsemane.
Remember Judas’ betrayal.
Remember our betrayal as we strip the altar in preparation for Good Friday.

Remember to come to this memorable service as the Chancel choir sings words to remember.


4/3 – Good Friday “Tenebrae” Service

Services at Noon and 7:00pm

Tenebrae means “darkness” or “shadows” … during this powerful service we take time to hear the “7 Last Words of Christ”, gathered from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, and meditate on the breadth and depth of Jesus’ sacrifice for us.

During the service, as we sing and pray, the candles in the church will be gradually extinguished to symbolize the betrayal, abandonment and anguish that Jesus felt leading up to his crucifixion and death.  The service ends in darkness and we depart in silence … waiting for the end of the story at Easter.

All are welcome for this somber, powerful service.  Please, join us.

4/5 – Easter Sunday Worship

8:15 & 10:30am – Festival Worship with Holy Communion
8:45-10:00am – Easter Breakfast

Whether you’re a member, a guest, or just looking for a chance to celebrate the good news, you’re welcome to join us at either the 8:15 or 10:30 service … and come downstairs to enjoy breakfast with your friends and neighbors between services.

We will be exploring these questions – and more – as we celebrate and give thanks for the many skills, talents and opportunities that God has entrusted to us. Take a peek at the display case in the Narthex for a sampling of some people’s passions. Can you add to that list? We give special thanks to Carolyn Lageson and Grace Lawson for this artful display.
