Welcome 

Along with the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.  As "Lutherans," our congregations accept and teach Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone. Here you will find information concerning our church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Our church is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and to call on us for anything you need. Feel free to browse our website and learn more about our christian fellowship.  If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we invite you to visit and experience our worship and fellowship and get to know us. When you visit our church, you will find:

* A caring and welcoming congregation
* Teaching centered on the Word of God
* Ministries for spiritual needs of all ages

  • Haiti Earthquake Assistance

    You may have seen the pictures showing the devastation of the 7.2 earthquake that hit Haiti! Ellie Menz with IDW has received texts, phone calls and emails asking how we can best respond to the needs. First of all, through our IOWAY connection with the Lutheran Church in Jacmel, 89 children are currently sponsored by churches and/or members of IDW. To the best of our knowledge, the children that we have sponsored are all safe and the Lutheran facilities in Jacmel were not damaged. The area with the heaviest destruction is in the Les Cayes area. There are many organizations where you can send a donation, but since I have had a close working relationship with Jackie Rychel with Ministry in Mission for many years, Pastor Keith Haney, Assistant to the President for Human Care for IDW and I decided to share this information with you. Ministry In Mission has quickly responded to the needs of those affected by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake in Haiti. Through Rev. Marky Kessa, Pastor of the First Evangelical Lutheran Church of Jacmel Haiti, Ministry In Mission sent funds for search and rescue teams and medical teams. The teams drove to Les Cayes, a city hit very hard by the earthquake. The medical team is comprised of Haitian doctors and nurses. In addition, funds were sent for an extended vacation bible school for the children of Jacmel. The children need the support of the church to help calm the fears that have been caused by the earthquake. People are more open to receiving the Good News of Jesus Christ during a disaster. The orphans and elders that we support are all physically fine.  Ministry in Mission is an RSO (Recognized Service Organization) of the LCMS. Donations will be wired to Pastor Marky Kessa in Jacmel. 100% of your donation will be given to help those in need with NO administrative fees.  If you wish to make a donation to help with disaster relief in Haiti, you may send a check to:

    Iowa District West-Haiti Relief
    409 Kenyon Road Suite B
    Fort Dodge, IA 50501

    Or to:

  • Luther's Morning Prayer

    In the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen. I thank You, my Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and all evil, that all my doings and life may please You. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the Evil Foe may have no power over me. Amen.

  • The Lord's Prayer

    Our Father who art in heaven. Hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

  • Prayer: Worship

    Father bring us to Your house. Change the way we think about time. Reorder our priorities until You are first and biggest and most important. Draw us into Your presence with loud songs of praise. In our prayers, our devotions, and our worship life make communion with You our first thought each day. Make our walk with Your Son the biggest part of our lives. With every step, bring us closer to the prize found only in Christ. You live and reign—one God, now and forever. Amen

     

  • Prayer: Stewardship

    Master, Give me a steward's heart today. Help me be faithful with all You have entrusted to my care. Make me efficient with my time, sparing with my words, and thrifty with Your treasure. Grant that my spending be wise and my giving represent my gratitude. Amen.

     

  • Prayer: Life

    Lord, You give us the breath of life and have given us new life—even eternal life; You love every precious life. God, we find ourselves in a land where life has been devalued. It has become a commodity to be bought and sold at no high price. Forgive us our inaction as so many lives are being neglected, taken, sold, and squandered. Show our culture the value of life. Guide our feet and our hands and our mouths—to go and to act and to speak. Wherever life is threatened or cheapened or disregarded make us defend and preserve life in the unborn, the untimely born, the infirm, the ill, the underprivileged, and the elderly. Watch over every precious life.Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Amen.

  • Good Night Prayer

    Thank You for the day just passed, my Heavenly Father. I pray that I have represented the cross of Christ well and faithfully. Forgive my sins from this day and empower me to do better tomorrow. Fill my mind and my heart with Your Word. By Your grace may I increase in knowledge and grow in faithfulness. Above all, put me at ease this night and fill me with Your peace through the forgiveness of Jesus Christ Your Son, my Savior, in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter Divine. Amen.
