Welcome to Prairie Faith Shared Ministry. Located in north central Kansas, six ELCA Lutheran congregations have stepped out in faith to enter into a truly shared ministry. We strive to provide the best tools for our members to grow as disciples of Christ and to proclaim the Good News of Christ within our communities and throughout the world. We hope you will join us at one of our churches for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

Beneath The Cross of Jesus – Lenten Services
We live our lives beneath the cross of Jesus, beneath God’s manifold love and grace that reach to us even from Calvary. Based on the hymn “Beneath the Cross of Jesus” we will explore what it means for us to abide at the foot of the cross, to cling to the rock of our salvation, to dwell in the house of the Lord, and to confess our sins and receive God’s forgiveness. Join us each Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m. at Bethelehem Lutheran or St. John Lutheran Church.

Lenten Lunch Bible Study with the Intern
St. Paul writes, "Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father” (Eph 5:18-20).
With these words we are invited to pray the psalmist’s meditations, cries, shouts, and songs. Sometimes we often neglect the Psalms, so this year we will look at some of the Psalms that have been used for centuries as a source of prayer and reflection during the Lenten Season.
The Bible Study is based on “Praying the Psalms of Lent” by Creative Communications. The topics and dates are as follows:
¨ March 16- Psalm 51: Renewing Forgiveness
¨ March 23- Psalm 6: Vindicating Forgiveness and Psalm
102: Restoring Forgiveness
¨ March 30- Psalm 38: Healing Forgiveness
¨ April 6- Psalm 32: Joyful Forgiveness and Psalm
130: Abundant Forgiveness
I look forward to coming together for fellowship over lunch after worship at St. John before diving into looking at the Psalms. If you have any questions please feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 785-726-3027. Intern Marie
