On Wednesday nights, Trinity Lutheran Church (Herrin, IL) offers to both children and adults an opportunity for teaching with Learn-by-Heart at 6:30 PM and a catechetical service at 7:00.
In this video from February 13, 2019, we learned stanza 1 of “If Thy Beloved Son, O God” (The Lutheran Hymnal#375) and questions one through three of the Office of the Keys from the Small Catechism. This service is designed to prepare God’s people for the theme of the upcoming Sunday Divine Service. The dialog sermon explains the parable of the laborers in the vineyard (St. Matthew 20:1-16), which is the Holy Gospel for Septuagesima Sunday.
he service concludes with “Responsive Prayer for Catechesis” (pdf link above).
This catechesis is recorded in two parts.
The first video is the Learn-by-Heart. [Length: 31 minutes]
The second video is the Catechesis Service. [Length: 34 minutes]
