What Are Those Lutherans Up To?

Nearby and all across the LCMS, our brothers and sisters in Christ are engaged in bringing the love of Christ, by Word and deed, to a broken world.  See what's up!  

Bible Reading Challenge

Making good use of the "stay-at-home year," Pastor Tiaden challenged us to read through the whole Bible together - and we did it!

But that's not the end.  Since it is part of "the normal Christian life" to "read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest" God's Word on a daily basis, you are invited to continue with a new series of daily readings.  These will be shorter readings, focusing on various topics.  See below, the Berea Beacon, or the Eager Berean for the list.

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."  2 Timothy 3:16-17

Watch Pastor Tiaden's Facebook Live posting commenting on each day's reading! Leave comments and questions.  Read the Bible online at Biblia or BibleGateway.

Pandemic Information

"I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."  John 16.33

Please let us know if you need any special assistance due to the pandemic.

Please wear your mask in the building to comply with State guidelines.
