Special Services and Events

2017 Lenten Season

LENTEN SEASON

Please join us as we enter our Lenten observances beginning on March 1st, Ash Wednesday, at 7:00 pm with a special service including ashes and Holy Communion.

Throughout the weeks of Lent we will again be joined by our friends from Real Church as we explore "Four Views of the End Times," a DVD study by Timothy Paul Jones, PhD.  We will meet each week at 7:00 pm for worship, teaching, Q&A, and prayer.  Our evenings will conclude with a time of coffee fellowship after the service.  (Note: there will not be a coffee fellowship time on Ash Wednesday.)

Free will offerings will be accepted each week during Lent.  After expenses are paid, the remainder of the offerings received will go to benefit "Shoe Away Hunger", a ministry of Good in the Hood.

Christ in the Passover

CHRIST IN THE PASSOVER PRESENTATION
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12 at 7:00 pm

Potluck Fellowship Meal at 6:00 pm

What do the Jewish Passover and Jesus' last supper have in common? 

Amer Olson, with Jews for Jesus, will answer that question as he presents, "Christ in the Passover" at Elmwood Evangelical Free Church on Wednesday, April 12th at 7:00 pm. 

You'll gain wonderful insights on how the pieces of God's plan of salvation fit together, and you'll remember this visual display of the Passover pageantry for years to come. 

Join us for Christ in the Passover from Egypt to Calvary to what it means for us today. 

Call 612-788-9408 for more information. 
There will be no admission charge.  A free-will offering will be received.
