Rev. Gerhard P. Grabenhofer,
"For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves.
It is the gift of God, not of works,
lest any man should boast."
As we gather in church our Lord
meets us and serves us in His
Word and Sacrament.
"I was glad when they said to
me, 'Let us go into the house of
the Lord.'" (Psalm 122.1)

Spiritual Growth Opportunities:|
|BIBLE STUDY OF MALACHI
Join us as we study the last of the Old Testament prophets before there were 400 years of silence between the Testaments broken by the coming of St. John the Baptizer.
JOIN US FOR WEDNESDAY LENTEN SERVICES AT 6 PM
Beginning Ash Wednesday and for the next five Wednesdays join us as we gather around our Lord's word and ponder His holy Passion.
Join us Holy Week at 6 pm on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.
Our Lenten services are rightly especially dear and valuable to us. In them we examine our Saviorís holy Passion. What an important subject it is! What is comparable to them? How small and insignificant in comparison are all those things with which the wise and learned of this world busy themselves! The Passion of our Savior is the center of the entire work of redemption, the spring of all salvation, the source of all comfort, the firm foundation of our faith, the anchor of all our hope in life and in death. How important and valuable must the passion of our Savior be! And how dear to us should these services be in which we consider this story of all stories!
BEGINNING SOON: READING AND STUDY OF OUR LUTHERAN CONFESSIONS
We will soon begin a reading and study of the "Book Of Concord" after the Divine Service on the first, third and fifth Sundays of the month.
