Romans 10:9-10 - “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.”

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:  Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed! Alleluia! Today in Sunday School your children are joining in the celebration of Christ’s resurrection as they study Matthew’s account of Easter morning (Matthew 28:1–10). Talk with your children today and this week about the reality of the bodily resurrection and what that means for us and our resurrection from the dead. Christ’s resurrection fills us with confident hope that as Christ has been raised from the dead and that we, too, will rise bodily to eternal life with Him in heaven.
