Sunday Morning Worship - 12/17/2017

Saturday, December 16, 2017

As we light the candles of our Advent wreath this morning you’ll notice that the color of the candle is pink. Pink is a color of joy. In fact, this Third Sunday in Advent is commonly referred to as “Rejoice Sunday.” But don’t confuse the joy we celebrate this Advent with a passing happiness. No, the joy we have this Advent is greater. It lasts always. That’s what today’s Epistle assures us when Paul writes, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18). Only in Jesus, the coming Savior, can we rejoice in good times and bad times, busy times and quiet times, sick times and healthy times. In Christ, we rejoice always!

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled “Good News From God” based on Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11.

Sunday Morning Worship - 12/10/2017

Friday, December 8, 2017

Christmas is fast approaching. Are you ready? This time of year, our to-do lists grow in length: decorations, food, gifts, shopping, parties, and more. As we check each item off the list, we convince ourselves that we are more prepared to celebrate Christmas. Today, however, we encounter John the Baptizer in the Gospel. John calls us to prepare for our Savior’s coming in a different way, a more significant way. John calls us to repent. Repentance is more than just something to check off our to-do list. It’s a change of heart that the Holy Spirit brings about. Look to the Lord this Advent for the repentance and forgiveness He gives as we prepare for His Son’s coming. That’s how to be truly ready for Christmas.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled “Prepare the Way” based on Mark 1:2-3.  Please join us at 9:45 AM for the younger children's Christmas program and at 11:00 AM for the older children's Christmas program.

Sunday Morning Worship - 12/03/2017

Sadly, there have been assassinations throughout history. Perhaps the death of Presidents Abraham Lincoln or John F. Kennedy comes to mind. If these leaders had known that death was on the horizon, would they have changed their itineraries? Would Lincoln still have gone to Ford’s Theatre? Would Kennedy still have traveled to Dallas? Jesus is different. Jesus knows His death is looming. Yet He still willingly travels the road to Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Jesus knows that cries of “Hosanna” will soon be drowned out by cries of “Crucify.” Jesus knows the pain He will endure and the sin He will carry. But Jesus still comes. There’s no change in travel plans. Jesus has come to earth for this very reason, to suffer and die so that, in faith, you have forgiveness and life.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “Advent Refocuses Us” based on 1 Corinthians 1:3-9.

Death Destroyed, Eternal Life Enjoyed..

Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017 Sermon by Pastor Baumann


Sunday Morning Worship - 11/26/2017

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

“To be continued . . .” Those simple words sometimes show up on the screen at the conclusion of a television show, announcing that something is yet to come to complete what has already been presented. The theme of the Last Sunday of the Church Year is that sort of message. Over the past Church Year, the history of salvation in Christ has been presented, and the work of the Holy Spirit through the Church has been celebrated. Now, the return of Christ the King is awaited, when the divine plan is unfolded. To what has been, what is now, and what will be in God’s design, we add our joyful “Amen!”

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled “Death Destroyed, Eternal Life Enjoyed, The King's Rule Employed Everlasting” based on 1 Corinthians 15:26.

Wednesday Eve Thanksgiving Worship - 11/22/2017

Tuesday, November 21, 2017

Gratitude does not depend on what is given or what is received. Gratitude is an attitude of the heart. One with a grateful heart stops immediately. Nothing else can go on until thanksgiving is expressed. That is what we see in the one leper who is healed. He cannot go back to his old life, nor can he begin his new life until he returns to Jesus, the source of healing, and offers Him thanks and praise. Our nation has been richly blessed by God. Each of us has received mercies new every morning. The key to contentment and peace is neither the abundance of gifts nor an absence, but a heart that returns thanks to the source of those gifts. Today we pause to do that, as a nation, as a people, and as Christians.

Please join us for Wednesday night worship at 6:30 PM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled “Good Gifts from a Good God” based on Psalm 103.

Fishers of Men

Sunday, November 19, 2017
Sunday, Nov. 19, 2017 Sermon by Guest Rev. Farrukh Khan with POBLO


Sunday Morning Worship - 11/19/2017

Saturday, November 18, 2017

The darkening days of the world are a time for God’s people to be looking toward the light—the light of Christ. Through our worship, we call out to our gracious God to brighten our lives as only He can. With the psalmist we call out, “Satisfy us in the morning with Your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days” (Psalm 90:14). God promises to satisfy us not only for our earthly lives but eternally as well. Looking toward that time of great surprise with confidence and hope, we say with the psalmist, “Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us” (Psalm 90:17a), and we respond to that favor with our heartfelt praise.

Preaching this morning is Reverend Farrukh Khan, Director of Development, has been serving with POBLO for 20 years.  Originally from Pakistan, Rev. F. Khan comes from a family that converted from Islam to Christianity and raised in the Christian faith.  After spending 17 years in Saudi Arabia as an engineer for a Texas-based multinational corporation, where he also worshipped in the Lutheran Church, Rev. F. Khan was called to work as a missionary for POBLO in Toronto, Canada.  While there, he helped to plant All Nations Lutheran Church, a primarily Pakistani and Indian congregation.  He is a graduate of Concordia Seminary’s Ethnic Immigrant Institute of Theology.  He has also received church planting training through the Center for U.S. Missions.  Since joining POBLO, Rev. Khan has planted new churches and trained existing churches on how to effectively engage in outreach to Muslims and other unreached people groups.  Rev. Cory Rajek, our Senior Pastor, is our Liturgist.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Farrukh Khan's message is titled “Fishers of Men” based on Matthew 4:19-20.
