CONSTRUCTION ON THE NEW CHURCH
SEE THE NEW CHURCH PROJECT - Rescheduled

SUNDAY ADULT BIBLE CLASS: We are now studying the The New Testament Letter of James! Join us!
WEDNESDAY BIBLE CLASS 10 am: Our Bible study is on the Lutheran Catechism. Please join us.
SUNDAY SCHOOL - GROWING IN CHRIST: Today in Sunday School, the children will study the temptation of Jesus (Matthew 4:1–11). Like us, Jesus was tempted by Satan to sin. Yet, for us, He overcame all temptation because we cannot. In your family discussions, consider how we are tempted to rely on ourselves and to trust in our powers. Provide examples. Assure your children that God lovingly provides all that we need for this life and eternity, doing all things for us and ordering our days and life in His peace
