A Note from Pastor (February 2024)
February 1st, 2024
For the first two weeks of February, we will celebrate the pre-lent Sundays of Sexagesima and Quinquagesima as the Word reveals how God works through Grace alone, Scripture alone and faith in Christ alone. Then, on February 14, we will officially begin the season of Lent with Ash Wednesday.  As we are all aware, Ash Wednesday helps us remember that we are dust and that, like Adam and Eve were warn...

 “God the Father was His source, back to God He ran His course. Into hell His road went down, back then to His throne and crown.”  This verse is from the hymn, “Savior of the Nations Come,” and is the theme for our annual winter youth retreat to be held here on January 12-13.   Even though the joy of Christmas and the Epiphany are still fresh in our minds, it is appropriate that that we also remem...

A Note from Pastor, October 2023
October 1st, 2023
In Luther’s Smalcald Articles, he writes the following concerning the First and Chief article of faith, “That Jesus Christ, our God and Lord, died for our sins, and was raised again for our justification, (Rom. 4:25). And He alone is the Lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world, (John 1:29); and God has laid upon Him the iniquities of us all, (Is. 53:6). Likewise: All have sinned and ar...
