Holy Week at Jehovah Lutheran Church
April 13th - 20th, 2014

Holy Week at Jehovah Lutheran Church offers opportunities to “come home this Easter” to worship God in Christ throughout Holy Week, culminating in the Resurrection of our Lord festival service on Easter.

Palm Sunday: April 13 8:45 & 10:45 a.m.
  • Procession with Palms and narrative readings of the Passion
  • Special Music by the Minnesota Boy Choir (10:45 a.m.)
Thursday, April 17: Maundy Thursday services 12:00 and 6:00 p.m.
  • 12:00 Noon - Holy Eucharist
  • 6:00 p.m. - The Seder Meal
    This remembrance of the Passover Meal complete with an explanation of all the food and symbols is designed to enhance the remembrance of that night when Jesus gave the Command that we “love one another.” We will be eating the meal at the back of the sanctuary and move forward to the altar for the Lord’s Supper and the stripping of the chancel to symbolize the stripping of Jesus for his Crucifixion. If you plan to attend, please complete and return the reservation form in your Sunday bulletin or RSVP to the church office, 651-644-1421 or, by Mon., April 14th.
Friday, April 18: Good Friday services 12:00 and 7:00 p.m.
  • Worship includes the reading of the Passion Narrative from the Gospel of John.
Saturday, April 19: Easter Vigil: 8:00 p.m.
Highlights of this family-friendly service with a four-part structure include:
  • The service of light—all process with candles through the dark hallways into the sanctuary.
  • The service of readings—a series of readings, all from the Old Testament, that prefigure God’s saving work. The final one from the book of Daniel, of the three men in the fiery furnace, is a blast!
  • The service of baptism where all are reminded of their baptism with a sprinkling rite.
  • The service of Holy Communion—sanctuary lights are turned on full, the chancel area is “dressed” for Easter with paraments and flowers, the Easter Gospel is read, and Holy Communion, the foretaste of the feast to come, is shared
Sunday, April 20: Resurrection of Our Lord: One Service at 10:45 a.m. The return of the Alleluia banner and proclamations of joy in the Risen Christ.

Wednesday Fellowship Dinners Resume January 29

Jehovah Lutheran Church is gathering donations of warm winter clothing and household items for Congolese refugees. Coats, hats, mittens, socks and blankets will help an expected influx of families arriving from the troubled African nation.

Jehovah Lutheran, at 1566 Thomas in St. Paul, hosts an office for CEEDS, the Center of Employment and Education Development Services, a group working with Congolese.

 Donors are welcome to leave clothing and other items in good condition in the church entry on Thomas. Tax-writeoff slips are available at the shopping cart nearby. Decades of war have created havoc in the central African nation. Some fleeing the violence are expected in St. Paul, where Congolese immigrants have an established community.

Adult Bible Class (ABClass)
Studying ISAIAH, Herald of the Messiah

9:30 a.m. Sundays in the Lounge of Jehovah Lutheran Church

Isaiah’s alternately harsh and poetically beautiful words of judgment and forgiveness -- spoken back in about 760 BC but quite applicable today -- continue to grab our attention in the Sunday Bible study. The class has begun the second part of Isaiah (ch 40-55) and will likely be continuing this Isaiah-fest until Easter.

Do join the discovery/ discussion starting at 9:30 a.m. in the lounge of the church, just inside the door at the 1566 Thomas Street entrance.

The topics for each session of this study may be found on the Education page of this web site.

For more information call Dawn at the church office: 651-644-1421. or e-mail

Seven young men were inducted as Eagle Scouts during an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Dec. 28, 2013, at Jehovah Lutheran Church in St. Paul:  Matthew Westpfahl, Jared Bluhm, Jacob Goodale, Connor Heck, Derek Murray, David Kolar, and Kaiden Hanan.

Only seven percent of Boy Scouts achieve Eagle Scout rank. Of these inductees, all active in scouting since age five, six attended Central Lutheran School in St. Paul. All seven received a letter of congratulations from President Obama.

The WHEREhouse
Formerly Known as theAlley-Midway

Officially starting on June 1st, theAlley-Midway became independent from its mother church in Cottage Grove. theAlley-Midway has renamed its church as The WHEREhouse, which is derived from Matthew 18:20; Jesus says “For where two or three gather as my followers, I am there among them.” The name appears to ask the question, “Where?” while all along, Jesus tells us that he is “Here."

Even though The WHEREhouse will offer weekly bible studies and worship services, much of the church's ministry will be directed to meet God's people where they are. To do this, instead of having a worship service, THE WHEREhouse once a month will "be the church" by engaging in outreach activities. In addition, the church aims to create several "Life Groups" (aka. home groups, bible study groups, etc.). To lead these efforts, the church is in the process of placing a call for an ordained LCMS pastor.

During this time of transition, The WHEREhouse will continue to look to God for direction on how it can best serve His people and its surrounding community as well as spread the Good News of His Son Jesus Christ. The WHEREhouse has been gracious of Jehovah's support over the past three years and would continue to ask Jehovah to keep The WHEREhouse in your thoughts and prayers.

Church Youth

Sunday-school kids helped collect food-shelf items.

Come and sing!

Our mixed-voice choir for singers from seventh grade to adult rehearses from 7-8 p.m. Wednesdays and sings up to four Sundays per month, primarily at the 10:45 a.m. service.

We sing, have fun during rehearsal, support each other in tough times, pray together and throw great parties.

If you have a busy schedule, it's OK to come when you can — or you could just join us for the great music of Christmas and Easter.
