Meet our Pastor
Pastor Denis Wittenberger

Every day we hear and see people who want to tell us something. We watch them on TV, we hear them on the radio, and we read them in newspapers or on our phones. Jesus tells us that none of these announcers are greater than John the Baptist, the messenger sent by God to prepare the way of the Lord. And yet, through faith in the Christ, you are greater than John in the kingdom of God.

Welcome to God's Holy House. The Third Sunday in Advent has traditionally been known as Gaudete Sunday, a Latin designation from the first words of the Introit which begin "rejoice in the Lord always" and is echoed in the Old Testament lesson. The overall theme of Advent is generally penitential and meditative in tone, as is seen in the subdued color of the paraments and in the voluntary omission of the more celebratory alleluias and Hymn of Praise. This third Sunday, however, is a kind of break or pause from such restraint, anticipating the approaching joy of the coming birth of the Savior. Welcome to Advent Worship. We are glad you are here. Our Communion, also, celebrates the real presence of Christ, confessing that He comes to us in, with, and under the Bread and Wine. Reassurance of God's forgiveness is given to all who believe. Attendance at the Supper implies agreement and public confirmation of all the biblical teachings of the Church. If you are new to the church and not publicly confirmed in this doctrinal faith, please speak with Pastor first and give yourself time to learn what is confessed and taught at this altar. All are welcome to come to the altar for blessing. Our dress-rehearsal for eternity's worship is scheduled for every Sunday morning. Please join us.
