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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 2021 Readings - ESV Bible in a Year!

    For 2021, our reading plan this year will be a challenge to read the bible in a year with focused readings each weekday. This is a very flexible schedule. Each day will cover a portion of the Bible. May God bless you as we take on this task together again in 2021!  Pastor Ben Perkins

  • Exhausted by the Pandemic

    Are you experiencing pandemic fatigue—that feeling of being mentally and emotionally exhausted by everything that’s going on right now? We’re all facing different kinds of life challenges during this time—

    • Isolation and loneliness;
    • Anxiety over health;
    • Grief;
    • Juggling work, childcare, and schooling responsibilities;
    • Financial strain or job loss;
    • Uncertainty about the future . . .


    The list goes on. It’s no wonder we might be hit by pandemic fatigue—I know I have.  But you don’t have to go through it alone. If you or someone you care about is experiencing difficulties like these, our Stephen Ministers are ready to listen, care, encourage, and be there to offer support.  A Stephen Minister will meet with you privately—by phone, by video chat, or possibly in person when it’s safe to do so—to focus on you and your needs. It’s free and completely confidential, and it offers real care, comfort, and hope.

    You can find out more by calling our Stephen Leader, Diane Zanter at 712.251.3009 or Pastor Ben at 712.943.4502.

  • 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.
