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.
UP COMING EVENTS:
Midweek Lenten Series
You Shall Love the Love the Lord Your God
In Mark 12, a scribe comes to ask Jesus, “Which commandment is the first of all?” Jesus answers, “The first is, ‘Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength’” (Mark 12: 28-30). Jesus responds to the scribe’s question with words from the Shema, the passage from Deuteronomy 6 that is recited daily by many of the Jewish faith. These words form a covenant between God and God’s people and show us a way to respond to this God who so extravagantly loves us through the cross.
Join us each Wednesday evening beginning March 8, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at Zion Lutheran Church. The message each week will center on how we can love the Lord our God with all our hearts, our souls, our minds and our strength. At St. John the Wednesday evening services will begin at 6:30 p.m. with soup & Lenten Labyrinth followed by the worship service at 7:30 p.m.
Lenten Soup Suppers at St. John
Once again St John will be having a light soup supper before the Lenten services. It will begin at 6:30 p.m. with soup & Lenten Labyrinth and the worship service following. Volunteers are needed to make a kettle of soup or dessert for each Wednesday beginning February 22. (Yes, that’s the correct date) See Intern Allie for details and to sign up for February 22, March 1, March 8, March 15, March 22, March 29, April 5, April 12, and April 19.
