Augustana Lutheran Church welcomes Artist and Pastor Paul Oman’s “Drawn to the Word”
Augustana Lutheran Church offers two unique Good Friday services on April 18, at noon and again at 7:00 p.m., featuring Artist and Pastor Paul Oman. “Drawn to the Word” offer a unique worship experience where in Pastor Oman will paint a larger-than-life sized mural based on Jesus and the cross. This story will unfold artistically, musically, narratively and scripturally during the service.
With the paintings as the focal point, music will be provided by tenor soloist Bruce Johnson and Director of Music and Organist, Cindy Lindeen-Martin at the noon service while the Chancel Choir has prepared several anthems for the evening service. Both services will include reading of scripture and a message and by Augustana’s Pastor John Pederson. Congregants are encouraged to attend both services as two different works of art will be featured.

He most recently served as Pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church of Birchwood, WI from 2003 to May of 2011 when he took up work as an artistic pastor full-time. Paul seeks to give new vision to GodÕs Word by using the process of painting to captivate audiences in our visually-oriented culture. Painting and drawing have been a part of PaulÕs life since childhood. Receiving international acclaim in 2010 and 2013 as a watercolorist, Paul now uses this gift to proclaim the Gospel in a unique and powerful way that impacts lives and inspires mission.
