What Does Worship Mean
For Lutherans, worship stands at the center of our life of faith. Through God’s word, water, bread and prayer we are nurtured in faith and sent out into the world. Each worship service, we gather. We encounter God’s word. We share a meal at the Lord’s table. And we are sent into the world.
But we do not think about worship so much in terms of what we do. Worship is fundamentally about what God is doing and our response to God’s action. Worship is an encounter with God, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
JLC is extremely proud to have celebrated its "200th" year during 2015. A special celebration worship service was held on Sunday, October 18, 2015, with Bishop Abraham Allende participating. A number of members who were raised in this church graced us with their attendance on this day of celebration.
Following the worship service, a catered luncheon was served in Luther Hall to over 120 past and present members. The entire Lutheran Hall was decorated with samples of the beautiful quilts and prayer shawls done by our JLC Women, numerous photos from our early days, and other memorabilia. Following the luncheon, a musical concert performed by "God's Quad" was held in the sanctuary.
A special display filled the church parlor with loads of history. It consisted of several historical items such as unique colorful baptism certificates, catechism books, old-time black & white photos of now deceased members, and even a bible written in German from the very, very early days of JLC. A photo board of all the pastors who served our beloved congregation was on display as well.
Time was well spent with old friends recalling days of our youth, swapping stories, and catching up on current events. Everyone in attendance thoroughly enjoyed themselves and was grateful for this wonderful opportunity of a lifetime.
Our "200th" celebration encompassed many months leading up to the day of celebration. A special banner was on display outside the church announcing our 200th year. As a means of giving back to the community, a food drive was held to benefit the local Oasis Food Bank. A paper product drive was held to benefit The Banquet of Salem, which provides meals to the local community. A red kettle from the Salvation Army was used to collect donations to help the Columbiana County Chapter. During the month of September, we displayed some of our historical artifacts at the Columbiana Public Library's display case located at the entrance doors.
All memorial donations received for this event were used to purchase a chairlift for the Hyland Street entrance into Luther Hall.
We honor all past, present, and future members of this historical church. A more detailed account of our history as well as the story behind all our our stained glass windows can be found on the "About Us" tab.
