"For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation."
The Lutheran Church of Our Savior believes this 'Good News' and rejoices that Christ was born for us and died for us. The angel said to Joseph, "you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21
For this we are thankful.

Season of the Church Year: Time Of Easter
The Time of Easter has three parts.
The first part of this season is the season of Lent. It begins with Ash Wednesday when some churches apply ashes to the forehead of believers in the sign of the cross. This reminds us, and testifies to others, that though we die we will rise one day because Christ conquered death for us. Lent continues for 40 days and it is a time of humility and repentance. It ends with Palm Sunday.
The second part is Holy Week. Beginning with Palm Sunday, also called Sunday of the Passion, recalls Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem. This week includes Maundy Thursday which commemorates the institution of the Lord's Supper to remember Christ's Passion. Next is Good Friday, when we recall the climatic event in the life of our Lord on earth, the crucifixion. During Holy Week we focus on the suffering and death of our Savior for our salvation.
The third part is the season of Easter. Easter, Resurrection Day, is the time of greatest joy. On Easter Sunday, the queen of feasts, our Lord rose from the dead. Having conquered sin, death and Satan, He guarantees victory for us over death and the grave.
The church observes this time over 50 days with three great feasts. Besides the Resurrection of Our Lord we celebrate the Ascension of Our Lord and the Feast of Pentecost. Ascension Day falls on the 40th day after Easter and commemorates our Lord's ascension into heaven. On Pentecost the risen Lord sent His Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, to His disciples. It is through the work of the Spirit that we receive the benefits of Christ's work for us.
