Welcome 

WE ARE HOLDING REGULAR SUNDAY SERVICES AGAIN FOLLOWING CDC AND MINNESOTA GUIDELINES.

  

 To view our most recent streamed Divine Service, Remincere, click here. We regularly live stream at 10:15am on Sunday mornings on our  facebook page. 

Hosanna Lutheran Church is affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) and celebrates the Divine Service with Communion weekly using the one year lectionary and the historic liturgy of the Christian Church as found in the Lutheran Service book.

Holy Communion. In accordance with the apostolic command and in unity with the unbroken practice of the Church, Hosanna practices Closed Communion. This is out of reverence for the Word of God, concern for all participants, and an expression of unity in the faith we publicly confess. If you are not a member of an LCMS church please talk with the pastor to see if there is a need for further discussion before communing. Visitors are invited to come forward for a blessing and to pray for the day when these divisions will cease.

SMART Recovery Meetings. According to Farm Bureau statistics, 75% of people living in rural communities have experienced the drug epidemic in some way. Hosanna gladly hosts a SMART Recovery meeting that meets weekly. Please contact Pastor Jarvis for more information.

Buffalo, MN: Grieving with Hope

What is happening?  The city of Buffalo, Minnesota has just taken their turn in experiencing a shocking tragedy. Jesus said, “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Even as little children, we learn that life isn’t fair. Every day, we face the consequences of sin and brokenness in our lives, from illnesses to disasters to other tragedies. These events often leave us struggling financially, physically and spiritually. But no matter what comes our way, we have the assurance that the victory has already been won for us. Jesus paid the ultimate price on the cross so that we might be with Him in heaven for all eternity.  Click here for a resource with 40 devotions — which each include a Scripture passage, a meditation, a prayer and a hymn.These are focused on bringing God’s comfort and peace to those who are struggling after a disaster or other crisis. If you desire further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact Pastor Jarvis with questions. 


What is Lent?

While many of the seasons of the Church Year have names that relate to the religious nature of the time being observed, the season of Lent doesn't. The word Lent comes from the Old English word lengthen, which referred to the spring of the year, when the daylight lengthens a little each day (at least in the Northern Hemisphere). The religious content of the word Lent has been added by the faithful observance of the Passion of our Lord, Jesus Christ, by Christian people for a period of time when the daylight was growing each day and spring was beginning.

The earliest root word from which Lent is derived is the ancient Indo-European word that meant “shining,” and, appropriately enough, one of the Lententide chores done in many homes is cleaning and shining the windows of the house. Church windows are often cleaned during the days of Lent as well. For an article about historic Christian practices in Lent that the Lutheran Church values, click here.


The Sundays in Lent

The second step or stage of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. This second stage ends when the week of Laetare (the 4th Sunday in Lent) is completed. In addition to the omissions and changes that began in the “Gesimas,” flowers no longer normally adorn the chancel, and the crucifix and crosses are veiled. During these four Sundays, the focus is on temptation and faith, and the Christian’s struggle.

On Invocabit Sunday, Jesus is tested. On Reminiscere Sunday, the faith of the Canaanite woman is tested. On Oculi Sunday, the people tempt our Lord to show them a sign from heaven. Laetare Sunday is “refreshment” Sunday


Oculi, the 3rd Sunday in Lent

The third Sunday in Lent is called Oculi, which means “My eyes” in Latin. The Gospel for this Sunay is about Jesus healing a man who was deaf and dumb.


Reminiscere, the 2nd Sunday in Lent

The second Sunday in Lent is also known as Reminiscere, which, in Latin, means: “Remember (O Lord)”. This is the opening phrase of the Introit — “Remember, O Lord, thy tender mercies and thy loving kindnesses; for they have been ever of old” (Psalm 25:6 kjv). The Gospel for this Sunday is about the Canaanite woman.


St. Patrick's Day, March 17

St. Patrick's Day is more than green beer. Actually, Protestants (which include Lutherans) might wear ORANGE not GREEN for this holiday.  For more information on this saint, click here. 


Feast of St. Joseph, March 19

Even though this day is not as popular as St. Patrick's Day, it is another feast day in the church calendar. For more details about this Feast day, click here.


FOR SALE SIGNS??

What DO those FOR SALE signs mean?  Hosanna has listed their land/buidling property as part of their future planning.  Don't be duped by rumors-stop by and see the exciting things happening at our "little church"!
