Meet our Pastor
Pastor Denis Wittenberger
With palm branches in hand, the pilgrims greeted our Lord with the cry "Hosanna! Save us now! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!" For salvation is exactly what Jesus was riding into His Holy city to accomplish. He would be glorified by being lifted high on the tree of the cross in order to draw to Himself all people in divine love. Hosanna!
Welcome to God's holy house. Palm Sunday begins the week we call "Holy". On this Sunday, Jesus enters Jerusalem, and during this week He will institute the Lord's Supper in the Upper Room. He will be betrayed and will stand trial before the high priest and Pontius Pilate. He will be crucified and buried. Each service this week is part of a single devotion and the theme is that of a servant. That Suffering Servant is Jesus who suffers under the load and debt of our sins. With humility and patience, He takes the burden of our sin to the cross. The Father pronounces it "paid in full!" We proclaim "blessed is He who comes!" This is a good place to start if we are to have the mind set of our Saviour. Welcome to Passion Week Worship. We are glad you are here as the Spirit unites us in love and the way of thinking of our Lord. 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. Welcome to Worship. We are glad you are here. 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.
