Meet our Pastor
Pastor Denis Wittenberger
Everyone loves a story, from the little ones to the aged. It is hardly an accident that our Lord chose to put so much of His teaching into little stories with big meanings. From the stuff of life in our world (such as gardening), He opens up to us the unimaginable riches of the kingdom of God, inviting one and all: "He who has ears, let him hear". (Matthew 13:9)
Welcome to God's Holy House. Today's lessons wonderfully focuses upon God's Divine Service. Even today's EPISTLE records Paul's struggles with his own sinful nature which focuses upon the comfort given to the believer who discovers, contrary to cultural expectations, that he or she is still caught up in sinful flesh living in a broken world..... Then comes the Gospel where Jesus invites us to discover that, despite this brokenness of our world, in reality, He makes our yoke easy and our burden light. Welcome to Pentecost Worship. We are glad you are here as together we come to exchange our burdens for His. 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.
