Norman Davenport Lutheran Worship                                    

First Sunday in Lent-February 18, 2024                                                           

Pastor Katie Kringstad




   P: “The Lord be with you!    R:   And also, with you 


This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. 

The Holy Spirit calls us together as the people of God. 

GATHERING SONG A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (ELW 504) vs 1-2 




Let us pray. A brief silence is kept before the prayer. 

Holy God, heavenly Father, in the waters of the flood you saved the chosen, and in the wilderness of temptation you protected your Son from sin. Renew us in the gift of baptism. May your holy angels be with us, that the wicked foe may have no power over us, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. 


CHILDREN’S MOMENT – Book – “What do you do with a problem.” 

FIRST READING: Genesis 9:8-17 

PSALM: Psalm 25:1-10 

SECOND READING: 1 Peter 3:18-22 


HYMN OF THE DAY: Good Christian Friends, Rejoice (ELW 288) vs 1-2 

GOSPEL: Philippians 4:4-8 

4 Always be joyful because you belong to the Lord. I will say it again. Be joyful! 5 Let everyone know how gentle you are. The Lord is coming soon. 6 Don’t worry about anything. No matter what happens, tell God about everything. Ask and pray, and give thanks to him. 7 Then God’s peace will watch over your hearts and your minds. He will do this because you belong to Christ Jesus. God’s peace can never be completely understood. 8 Finally, my brothers and sisters, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things. 

SERMON – Max Lucado video – Rejoice in the Lord Always 

HYMN OF THE DAY:Good Christian Friends, Rejoice (ELW 288) vs 3-4 



I believe in God, the Father almighty, 

creator of heaven and earth. 

I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, 

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

born of the virgin Mary, 

suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, died, and was buried; 

he descended to the dead.* 

On the third day he rose again; 

he ascended into heaven, 

he is seated at the right hand of the Father, 

and he will come to judge the living and the dead. 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy catholic church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting. Amen. 


OFFERING SONG: Thy Holy Wings (ELW 613)  


Let us pray. Blessed are you, O God, maker of all things. Through your goodness, you have blessed us with these gifts: ourselves, our time, and our possessions. Use us, and what we have gathered, in feeding the world with your love, through the one who gave himself for us, Jesus Christ, our Savior, and Lord. Amen. 


God blesses us and sends us in mission to the world. 

BLESSING (ELW p. 155) 

The Lord bless you and keep you. 

The Lord’s face shine upon and be gracious to you. 

The Lord look upon you with favor and  give you peace. In the name of the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. Amen. 

SENDING SONG: A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (ELW 504) vs 3-4 


Go in peace. Serve the Lord. 

Thanks be to God.
