LUMC Good Friday Service: ”Noise”

Too often we find ourselves surrounded by “noise” and we don’t even realize it. Sometimes the things that create “noise” don’t even make a sound…fear, stress, sadness. It’s hard to find time to “Be Still.” Join us for a unique Good Friday Service. We will use video and various interactive prayer stations to help us sort through the noise and hear God’s voice.
