Mid-Week Bible Study
7:00 p.m., Wednesdays
We are currently reading First and Second Peter. These are writings from later in the first century and show the growing development of the early church. They are probably not written by Peter, but were given his name to gain their acceptance in the church.
Lectionary Bible Study
8:45 a.m., Sundays
This is a very rigorous discussion of the Gospel lesson for the day. Many a sermon has been changed at the last minute because of this discussion. Please join us.
As a congregation, we stand at the edge of an exciting revitalization. Our new President, Russ Smith, has committed himself to the task of revitalizing the church by an effort to attract new members. This revitalization also entails the development of new programs which will benefit all aspects of church life, including worship and education.
However, this endeavor will take the participation of every member of the congregation. It cannot fall on the shoulders of a few. All are needed. Some to pray. Some to organize. Some to finance. Some to attend, especially worship. And so on. Together we can accomplish a lot, we can accomplish a renewal in the church. Together we can spark enthusiasm for our congregation and i ts mission
What is the mission of the church? We are a refuge for those who have been spiritually beat up. We are a safe haven for those who have no church to fall back upon in trouble. We are a spiritual home for those who desire to grow in grace through Word and Sacrament. We are a church guided by and committed to proclaim the Word of God. We are a family. We care for each other. This is who we are. This is our mission.
