4/16/23 - 2nd Sunday of Easter

As our attention turns again to the upper room, Thomas' doubts about the risen Lord bring to mind our own fears and doubts. Yet in the risen Jesus we have a Savior who strengthens our faith by giving us the proof and peace we need in His Word and sacraments. As Peter puts it, we have been born again into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Pastor's sermon, "Praise God for Our Living Hope in Christ" is based on 1 Peter 1:3-9. God bless your worship!

4/2/23 - Palm Sunday

Hail the King who humbly comes to save us. The time of Christ's glory has come, but it will be a glory found in humility as Jesus humbles Himself to save us. Ultimately, He is exalted as the One whose lowly obedience has saved humanity from sin and death. We see this humility and lowly obedience in Jesus' choice of animal to ride into Jerusalem. Pastor's sermon, "His Final Steps Led to a Donkey" is based on Matthew 21:1-11.

3/19/23 - 4th Sunday in Lent

3/12/23 - 3rd Sunday in Lent

The account of Jesus healing a man born blind reveals many of our own blind spots as sinful human beings--our blindness to God, to ourselves, and to each other. Yet in the Lord Jesus Christ we find the answer to our blindness. Pastor's sermon, "The Light of Jesus Opens Our Eyes" is based on selected verses from John 9. 

3/5/23 - 2nd Sunday in Lent

Simple trust in God's promises brings the gift of living water for thirsty souls. Abram, trusting God's promise, went where God commanded, and became not only the father of many nations, but the forefather of the Promised Seed who would bless all nations. Pastor's sermon, "Life Is a Journey of Faith" is based on Genesis 12:1-8.
