Reaching out with the love of Christ.
Dennison and Vang Lutheran is a combined ministry of two congregations with a proud history, a vibrant present, and a bright future. Our mission is to be a loving presence for our community in Christ’s name. Dennison and Vang are located about 3 miles apart from each other in Dennison, MN.
We are a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), and the Southeastern Minnesota Synod.
Looking forward to hearing God’s good news this month.
Sunday, October 24 – Vang, 11:00
Sunday, October 31 (Confirmation Sunday) – Dennison (9:00 AM), Vang (11:00 AM)
Come celebrate the milestone of Affirmation of Baptism/Confirmation on Sunday, October 31!
Congratulations to this year’s confirmands:
Sunday Morning Worship – The first Sunday of the month will feature special music, joyful songs, and a message of hope and healing from God’s Word. You will leave this worship time feeling refreshed, strengthened, and renewed.
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!
