Meet our Pastor
Pastor Denis Wittenberger
"If You are the Son of God....." Thus Satan seeks to make our Lord doubt the Father's words to Him at His Baptism, the same tactic Satan uses on you. But Jesus will not be moved from the promise of the Father. He clings to the written Word. Three times with "it is written" Jesus overcomes the adversary for you. In His Word, He gives you His victory over Satan's temptations.
Welcome to God's holy house. What an awesome thought as God moves among his people each week in and through His Divine Service holiness. In the entrance hymn, we enter into the holy place of God, recalling His abundant mercy. Having confessed our sins, we receive His absolution. We respond with praise. He deals with us not according to our iniquities, but according to "His steadfast love". Then we hear Him call us His holy people through His Holy Scriptures and then teaches us what holiness means. Divine Service indeed! Welcome to Lenten worship. We are glad you are here as together we are encouraged to share the fruit of this holiness with our neighbor through love and service. 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.
