Jesus Unforsaken: The Cross and the Unrelenting Love of God

Why did Jesus die on a cross? What does the cross reveal about God, the world, and ourselves? What does the cross mean, and what does it mean for daily life and decisions? 

Questions like these are vital to our walk with Jesus. You are invited to come explore these questions as we seek together a Christ-centered vision of the cross that sets us free, heals us, and unveils God’s unrelenting love.

All are welcome. We will be meeting in person and on zoom.

“Jesus Unforsaken” will begin on Sunday, January 9 following the 9:00 AM service at Vang.


Songs of My Life – This innovative gathering will be on the 3rd Sunday of the month. The Songs of My Life Gathering is open to anyone who is seeking connection. People are invited to gather to share stories, songs and space with each other. In this way we grow together in our journey here on earth. 

Taize Prayer – On the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM, come spend some peaceful moments with God. Taizé Prayer is evening prayer for all Christian faiths. It is a simple, meditative form of worship, calling us to open to Christ's presence around and within us. Taizé Prayer is named for the ecumenical Christian community formed in Taizé, France during World War II. It is an evening prayer practiced by millions of people all over the world.

Come re-imagine what church can be at Dennison Lutheran Community Church, and help us to “Sing to the Lord a new song!”

Since Dennison will be gathering every other Sunday and once a month on Wednesdays, please note the dates of worship every month. More information is on the newsletter calendar and the church website.

These opportunities are meant for outreach, so invite a friend!
