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 to meet spiritual needs of all ages

  • Trunk or Treat Changes!

    All Hallows Eve is otherwise known as Halloween. This year we're having a contest in which we are asking members to pick a tree in the church yard to decorate the trunk and reachable branches with your favorite Halloween décor. We are also asking for Jack “O” Laterns with Christian Symbols cut out – Cross, Fish Shape, Praying Hands – just a few ideas. We would like to have all trees and Jack ‘O’ Laterns decorated by Tuesday October 29th. 

    The lights on the tress will help illuminate the church and the Jack ‘O’ Laterns will provide the pathway into the side door of the church. Trick or Treaters will enjoy visiting the Enchanted Forest (aka – the decorated trees) then travel the Hallowed Hallway (aka decorated office wing hallway) where they will receive treats, then proceed to the fellowship area to hear a special message how God takes the dirtiness darkness and brings forth light and salvation. We will also have Hot Chocolate, and Hot Apple Cider for them to warm up with before they leave the church.

    There will be prizes for the top 3 decorated trees. We pray that you will help make this a night to remember for the children of the Sgt Bluff Community.  In other words we can’t do this without you.   We will also need individuals to help hand out treats. We will also be in need of the following items  Candy, Apple Cider/Hot Chocolate to be given out as treats. If you can provide any of the items we ask that they be to the church by Sunday Oct 27th. Let’s all share the good news of our Lord and Savior this Halloween Night.

  • SOP Youth Service Projects

    The Annual Earl May fundraiser is just a couple weeks away on Sat 10/12. We can't wait for all the fun to be had, pumpkin painting, hayrack rides, face painting, games, food and our tremendous bake sale! 

    SOP Youth Leaders are requesting congregational donations of bake sale items and we are always looking for talented face painters! Please bring baked goods to church by 6pm on Friday 10/11 or drop off at Earl May on Saturday morning.

    The Siouxland Soup Kitchen is looking for "Blessing Bags" and have reached out to the SOP Youth Group to be a part of this need for our community. In response, the SOP youth group will be assembling them twice a year starting with October. Our confirmation classes have a service/incentive on Wednesday each month. Below is a list of donation items for members of the congregation to purchase and drop off at the church in support of this mission project. The Siouxland Soup Kitchen will pass these bags out in the winter months. Thank you in advance!

  • Adult Bible Study

    For Fall, we're trying something a little different and we've created two study groups (Women Study Group & Men + High School Youth Study Group) who will be reading, studying and discussing content from the book: "Twelve Ordinary Men" by . The book takes a deeper dive into how Jesus shaped his disciples for greatness from the ordinary men and the lives they led (fisherman, tax collectors, etc.). These groups are open to everyone!

  • 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.
