As a family united in faith by the Holy Spirit, we exist to worship and praise the Triune God, to be nurtured through His Word and Sacraments, and to share His love in Christ with others.
"Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth. Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs." Psalm 100:1, 2

We live in a world searching for truth. Many people today believe that real truth is no longer to be found. We, however, take refuge in our Savior who spoke only the truth, and who even called Himself the Way, the Truth and the Life. Knowing that everything uttered by our Lord was true, we take great comfort in the many promises He made – promises that will indeed be kept.
Truly He is worthy to receive honor, for He has promised that we will become members of His holy family. Jesus said, “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”
Truly He is worthy to receive adoration, for He has promised us complete freedom. Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching you are really my disciples, then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Truly He is worthy to receive wisdom, for He has promised the light of life. Jesus said, “I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.” Truly He is worthy of wealth, for He has blessed us with the promise of earthly gifts. Jesus said, “Give and it will be given to you, a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.
Truly He is worthy of our love, for He has promised us His unending love. Jesus said, “He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him.”
Truly He is worthy to receive thanksgiving, for He has promised to hear our every prayer. Jesus said, “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
“Ephesus and the Ephesians” Prof. Roger Kobleske
Sundays 9:10am through May 17th
There are several major cities mentioned in the New Testament. Jerusalem and Rome would be well known and modern cities. Less well known would be Antioch in Syria and Ephesus. Antioch in Syria is where followers of Jesus were first called "Christians" and served as the home base for Paul and his companions on their missionary journeys. Ephesus today lies in ruins. It was, however, the one place Paul spent more time than any other during his missionary journeys. We will begin with a brief history of Ephesus, proceed to the book of Acts, follow that with Paul's letter to the Ephesians written from Rome and conclude with the letter to the Ephesians in the Revelation.
“Pictures of Heaven” Pastor Carter
Tuesdays 7:30pm and Wednesdays 10am
April 14th through May 20th
In the Bible, prophets spoke what they heard from God. They also spoke what the saw – God gave messages to them in dreams and visions, and as they described what they saw, we can gain a picture of what God wants us to see. It’s said that, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Come and hear (and see!) some of the pictures that the Bible have painted about what heaven is going to be like!
