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

 

Announcements

  • Sunday School Redesigned

    Parents, we understand the circumstances and stresses that you are under and we continue to pray for you and our country. After review and evaluation, we will be continuing to host a socially distanced group youth education in church on Sunday mornings (see detail below) and are retooling our Sunday School curriculum to provide a virtual / online education for you to spend some quality time with your children at home discussing and growing their christian education (check back in the coming weeks for more information (see Sunday School menu).  

    On Sunday 10/11, and for the following 4-5 weeks, as a group we are watching "God's Not Dead" in sections combined with a weekly group review and discussion to evaluate the concepts shared within the movie. Following this group movie/lesson, we will be moving on to "The Chosen" season-1. The Chosen is the first multi-season television series about the life of Christ, as witnessed through the eyes of those He impacted. 

    It is our intent is to continue providing christian education opportunities for all of our kids,wherever they may be. As we share the new online curriculum with you, we encourage you to make time to share in the experience together at home, in church or wherever you are. Trust that you all are and continue to be in our prayers!

  • LWML Facebook Live Bible Study

    "Your Strong Suit" Video Bible Study - Join LWML online for an eight week, verse-by-verse study of Ephesians 6:10-18. The armor of God details the incredible protection that God provides to His children. Even though we may not like discussing spiritual warfare, it is necessary because it is real. Spiritual warfare has the potential to rob us of peace and security only to leave behind doubt and unrest. But God offers protection to us – HIS protection. Journey through this study as we learn about the battle, our enemy, our armor, and our place in God’s army. But most importantly, we come to know the rock solid truth that God has provided everything needed for us to proclaim ultimate victory.

    Donna Snow and LWML are once again partnering in a live Bible study on Facebook during October and November. Join your LWML friends from around the world as Donna leads us through Your Strong Suit, based on Ephesians 6:10–18, every Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. Central Time beginning October 6, 2020.  Click Here for LWML Facebook Page

  • 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.
