Welcome to Pleasant View
Evangelical Lutheran Church

Inviting… Nurturing… Growing… Serving…


Good News is Inviting

Start to think about that friend of new neighbor who might not have a church. Invite them to come with you. God may have already opened a door in their life; now they only need someone to make a connection.

Lent, Holy Week & Easter Services

Ash Wednesday Service

February 26 at 6:00pm

Mid-Week Lenten Services

Our Lenten journey begins with Ash Wednesday worship on March 4 at 12:00 noon.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar and plan to attend our special mid-week Lenten services. This year they will be held at noon on Wednesdays and begin with a soup and cracker lunch followed by a worship service centering on a short skit followed by a discussion time. The dates in March are 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th, and April 1st. See you there

Weekly worship during Lent helps us prepare for the glory of Easter, so join us and bring a friend. (Sign up sheet for the soup and sandwich meals will be posted on the bulletin board.)

Maundy Thursday Service - Holy Week

Thursday, April 9, we will share a Maundy Thursday meal and communion service in the social hall.

Good Friday Service - Holy Week

On Good Friday, April 10, our service will be in the sanctuary beginning at 6:30pm and ending as we leave the church in darkness.

Palm Sunday Service - Baptismal Theme

This year we will highlight the baptismal theme on Palm Sunday, April 5th,  in a special way. If you or members of your family have not been baptized now would be a good time to contact me on Sunday or by phone (540-848-5325). I’ll talk with you about the sacrament and make the necessary arrangement for the baptism to take place on April 5th. I know that in the Lutheran Church we are used to seeing infants baptized but in today’s world many people have never been baptized and as a former military chaplain I have baptized children and adults of all ages.

Also, if you have been baptized but would like to come forward on Palm Sunday to renew your baptismal vows please let me know in person or call me at (540) 848-5325. Some people find help and comfort in the ritual of reaffirming their baptism in times of grief, illness, hardships, or a prolonged absence from attending church.

As we experience the season of Lent together my prayer is that we all grow deeper in our understanding and commitment of our baptism and the gifts that it offers.

Easter Services

The Sunrise Service will be on Easter morning at 7:00am followed by a light breakfast, and we celebrate communion at 11:00am on Easter Sunday. You are invited to attend all of these services and to bring a friend.
