German Worship Service at St. Lorenz: 175th Anniversary

On Sunday, August 9th, St. Lorenz’s monthly German worship service will be held at 11:00 am in the Church - 1030 W. Tuscola Rd., Frankenmuth, MI 48734. Safe distance seating, hand sanitizing and face masks (for entering and exiting the building) will be requested to assure we worship safely. Communion will be offered. The readings, hymns and message will focus on celebrating God’s grace for 175 years in and through the mission and ministry of St. Lorenz Lutheran Church. Special remembrance will be made of August 18, 1845, when the immigrant founders moved into their communal dwelling, establishing Frankenmuth. God’s faithfulness for 175 years is extremely encouraging in facing our challenging future. The English sermon theme is “Get Ready, Get Set, and . . .!” by Pastor Bill Hoesman. The congregation will join in singing favorite hymns: "Nun danket alle Gott" (Now Thank We All Our God), and "Wo die Schwalbe baut ihr Nest" (Where the Swallow makes her nest – St. Lorenz’s 150th Anniversary Hymn). Wir loben und danken unserem Gott für seine175 Jahre Segen auf St. Lorenz und Frankenmuth. (We praise and thank our God for His 175 years of blessings on St. Lorenz and Frankenmuth.)

The service will also be available on Charter cable channel 191, on the St. Lorenz app., and live-streamed on the St. Lorenz website at: http://stlorenz.org where you click on the ‘Media’ tab on the top of the home page and then click on the ‘Traditional Services’ box on the left.
