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.

  • Epiphany and its Season

    Epiphany is one of the oldest seasons in the Christian Church Year, second only to the Easter season. This season of lights emphasizes Jesus' manifestation (or epiphany, from the Greek epiphanea) as God and man. The earliest Christians called the feast of the Epiphany the Theophany ("revelation of God"). When the Gentile Magi come to worship Jesus, they show that everyone now has access to God. Now all people, Jew and Gentile, can come to God's temple to worship, because Jesus is the new temple: God in the flesh. The Epiphany of Our Lord (January 6) marks the celebration of the visit of the Magi. Epiphany may include as many as nine Sundays, depending on the date of Easter. 

  • Jan. 24, Transfiguration Sunday

    Transfiguration Sunday is the Sunday in Epiphany when we consider Jesus' transformation in front of 3 of His disciples.  In the church year, it begins our transition to the season of Lent.  For a devotional reading on the Transfiguration click here. 

  • February 2 Candlemas OR Groundhog's Day?

    The feast of the Presentation of Our Lord and the Purification of the Virgin Mary is one of the oldest on the liturgical calendar. It celebrates the occasion on which Jesus’ family underwent both the ritual purification God required of women who have given birth (Lv. 12) and the redemption of the firstborn (Ex. 13:12–15), both of which were to happen 40 days after his birth—hence, the feast of the Presentation and Purification falls each year on February 2, 40 days after Christmas. The account is remembered more for Simeon’s appearance than anything else, and it is that to which we owe the beautiful canticle of Simeon, the Nunc dimittis: “Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace…” (Lk. 2:29–32). Martin Luther paraphrased Simeon’s canticle as a chorale, sung as the processional hymn this evening: “In Peace and Joy I Now Depart.” Simeon’s canticle introduces one additional aspect to the feast, that of “Candlemas:” it is an ancient and laudable custom that the Church blesses on this day all the candles to be used at the altar and in torches over the following year (this naturally does not apply to the Paschal candle, which is consecrated at the Easter Vigil). This custom recalls how Simeon in his canticle acclaimed Jesus as “a light to lighten the Gentiles.” Candlemas is the “unofficial” end of the Christmas season: while Christmas proper is twelve days long and is followed immediately by Epiphanytide, the parallel of “40 days of Christmas” to the 40 days of Lent and the 40 days between Easter and the Ascension is an attractive one. (In many locales, household Christmas decorations remain up until February 2.)

  • Geisma Sundays: "What's a Gesima?"

    In the Church Year (one year series), the three Sundays before Lent are known as “gesima” Sundays, and are like a pre-Lent.  Why a three week “pre-Lent?”  There's been some joyous weeks, Epiphany, Jesus' Baptism, but change is coming. We will soon have the  season of Lent, on the way to the Cross, without which Easter is but another metaphor or myth. This Lutheran Missal blog is an excellent resource to learn about these Sundays.  Also, visit the following site to learn more.
