Worship and devotional resources
from Concordia Publishing HouseMiracles of Lent
This CD includes fully customizable resources for the pastor and musician, designed to lead the Christian congregation through the season of Lent in preparation for the Easter celebration. The theme of this series is the several miracles and miraculous signs performed by God during the Passion of Jesus Christ. The important and significant miracles and miraculous signs that God the Father performed to set apart His Son's death from absolutely all others were performed to help spread the Good News, which is centered in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ in the face of opposition.

Words of Life from the cross
This CD-ROM offers substantial resources for those looking to connect God’s people to the words of life shared from the Cross in a variety of congregational programs and settings.

Journey to the Cross
Journey to the Cross is an outreach and educational event for your congregation and community. Through activities based on Scripture, participants experience the joy of Palm Sunday, the disappointment of Judas’ betrayal, the devastation of the crucifixion, the jubilation of the resurrection, and so much more.
