The Church Council and Call Committee are actively looking for a Pastor. Watch for updates from Church Council President Tom Steinmann.
The theme of our worship on Easter 3 "Fear Not". - Luke 24:36-48 "Then he (Jesus) opened their minds to understand the scriptures." Luke 24:45 We often fear what we don't understand. Jesus made sure the disciples understood that being the Messiah came with great pain and suffering. May we understand all that is involved in being a follower of Jesus. Facing it not with fear, but with great joy. Come find out more at our Contemporary Service Saturday at 5:00 pm or our Traditional Services on Sunday at 8:00 am and 10:45 am.
Guest Officiants: Brian Moeller, S.A.M.
