Hidden Hurts Healing Hearts

The Lutheran Church of Australian (LCA) is launching a national Domestic and Family Violence prevention campaign on Sunday 26 th November 2017.

Wodonga Lutheran Parish - St John's, St Mark's and Victory Lutheran College are proud to participate with our Church in supporting the Hidden Hurts Healing Hearts campaign which helps people to recognise violence wherever it occurs and to respond appropriately and pastorally. It encourages the building of relationships and communities that are kind and loving, based on mutual servanthood and respect. The Hidden Hurts Healing Hearts campaign is based on the principles set out in the LCA Standards of Ethical Behaviour, which promote compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience within relationships. It supports the LCA Statement on Marriage. The campaign involves raising awareness in congregations, schools and other institutions of the church, as well as training, research, identifying and developing resources, and recommending and implementing specific actions.

Hidden Hurts Healing Hearts - For further information please go to the LCA web page LCA Hidden Hurts Healing Hearts Domestic and Family Violence prevention campaign. The LCA has released a formal announcement through a web email with links to the resource page containing facts sheets, videos, links to support agency and other material. Please click on this link Domestic and Family Violence Announcement

Advent 1

Parish Service Celebrating Advent

Wodonga Lutheran Parish invites you to join with us as we celebrate Advent 2017 at a combined service at St John's Church. Advent marks the beginning of the church calendar. It traditionally starts on the Sunday closest to St. Andrew’s Day (November 30th) and continues for four Sundays until Christmas. During this time the liturgical paraments and vestments change to purple to recognise Advent as a time of preparation and repentance as well as a symbol of the royalty of the coming King.

To commemorate Advent 1 with a message of Hope we invite you to come and share in fellowship in our Church Hall on Saturday 2nd December. If you are able to, please bring a plate of finger food to share. We meet at 5.00 p.m. onwards before moving into the Church for a 6.00 p.m. worship service and lighting of the Hope candle. On this and the next three Sundays leading up to Christmas, we will rejoice in the great gift that is ours in Jesus Christ. Hope is our assurance that God will finish all He has started. Hope is our confidence that He will do all He has promised.

The hall is located behind St John's Church 14 Havelock Street, Wodonga. There is parking available here or across the road in the Council Car Park.

Please note there is no Sunday Service at St John's Wodonga or St Mark's Yackandandah on Sunday 3rd December 2017.
