Sunday Morning Worship - 9/17/2017

Friday, September 15, 2017
In one well-known Collect of the Church, we pray that the Lord would be with us as we are called to “ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown.” Certainly Martin Luther must have had the sense of unending ventures, untrodden paths, and unknown perils as he brought the focus of the Church back to the proclamation of the pure Gospel of Jesus Christ in the sixteenth century. It is a blessing to be able to look back to those times and “travel” with Luther and other servants of God from that era. Discovering a deeper appreciation of how they went out with good courage, assured that the hand of God was leading them and God’s love was supporting them, can encourage us on our journeys of faith in our times. May we be blessed on our journeys!

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled “Forgiveness Full & Free - Now What Does that Mean for Me?” based on St. Matthew 18:32-33.

A Childlike Faith

Sunday Morning Worship - 9/10/2017

Thursday, September 7, 2017

Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3). It is of great comfort that almighty God treats us as His dear children. As the hymn says, although “He knows how frail our powers,” still “His grace remains forever” and “His rule is over all” (LSB 820:3–4). Yet while we rejoice in God’s tender mercy for us, today’s Readings remind us that God intends that same mercy for those around us, our family, our own children, and our brothers and sisters of the household of God. As John said, “Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another” (1 John 4:11). In other words, we who have received mercy are the very channels and messengers of that same mercy to others. We renounce disgraceful ways that allow sin to drag either ourselves or others down, and we bring God’s merciful forgiveness of sins to everyone.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “A Childlike Faith” based on Matthew 18:1-20.

What's My Sacrifice?

Sunday Morning Worship - 9/3/2017

How often might you feel lost—lost among the confusion and details and busyness of life? When someone is lost, they forget or do not know where they should be going. When someone loses money, their health, or a loved one to death, everything from anger to despair to fear take over, and we are tempted to think there is no hope. That’s why Jesus’ statement “whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it” sounds so strange, so backward. We lose our life by daily contrition and repentance as the old Adam is drowned. We find ourselves given the gift of eternal life as the new man daily arises, and we escape death forever!

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled “What’s My Sacrifice?” based on Matthew 16:23-24.

Who Is Jesus... To You?

Sunday Morning Worship - 8/27/2017

There are many different opinions in our world about who the Lord is, and many of those opinions are based on who people want the Lord to be. What a privilege and joy it is that as we gather we don’t need to try to seek and find the Lord and His attributes on our own. Instead, He reveals Himself as who He was, is, and ever shall be, in and throughout Scripture. We hear this today in our Old Testament Reading as God, through Isaiah, calls His people to look and listen to Him as He seeks and makes us His redeemed children (Isaiah 51:1–6). As His children, we are part of His Body and blessed to complement one other in faith and fellowship (Romans 11:33–12:8) and in the confession of who our Savior Jesus Christ truly is (Matthew 16:13–20). As He continues to seek and to find, and by the calling, gathering, and enlightening by His Holy Spirit through His Word, we worship in that promised grace giving certain hope now and in the future.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “Who Is Jesus....To You?”  based on Matthew 16:13-20.

A Faith Which Looks to Jesus

Sunday Morning Worship - 8/20/2017

Pet dogs know the right place to be at mealtime: under the table. They know you don’t need a special seat; these dogs are happy to get crumbs of “people food.” And we rejoice to receive what we don’t deserve: whatever blessings God bestows on us, disobedient sinners that we are. In the Old Testament Reading, God promises that He would call us foreigners to His table, and here we are. Even the disobedience of God’s Old Testament people has proven good for us, as we see everyone receiving mercy from a gracious God. The Canaanite woman in the Gospel saw herself in the position of a dog, trusting she would receive crumbs from the family table. But the bread crumb falling to earth she and we have received is none other than the Son of God, the Bread of Life. The crumb each of us receives is priceless! As we gather around Word and Sacrament, we get no stale food, but the nourishment we need for abundant life each day until we join saints and angels at the eternal feast in heaven.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “A Faith Which Looks to Jesus”  based on Matthew 15:20-28.
