Meet our Pastor
Pastor Denis Wittenberger
Death had finally met its match. The angel in the tomb proclaims the good news of the resurrection to the women: "He has risen!" And throughout the ages, the Church has responded in overflowing joy: "Alleluia!" The Crucified One, whose blood has answered for our every sin, has been raised in our very flesh for our justification. St. Augustine had it right: "We are Easter people, and Alleluia is our song."
Welcome to God's Holy House. Palm Sunday has been described as the "Trojan Horse" of the Church Year. The Divine Service begins with the Palm Sunday Procession, one of the most joyful events in the Gospels. But, soon, besieged from within, so to speak, the meek and mild King goes to war against sin, death, and Satan. Let us make this week a holy unit as we begin with "blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord" and continue through the climactic moment of the Passion when we hear "truly this man was the Son of God!" We are glad you are here. May we use every opportunity of devotion and special Services to best prepare for the Resurrection Celebration. 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.
