Sunday Morning Worship - 1/14/2018

Friday, January 12, 2018

“Speak, Lord, for Your servant hears.” With this invitation, the prophet Samuel opens himself to receive God’s Word for His people. In the Epistle, Paul reminds us that we are not our own. Rather, we belong to the Lord because we have been bought with the price of Jesus’ precious body and blood given and shed for the forgiveness of sins. This Jesus is God’s first and final Word to all humanity—the Logos incarnate. Born in Bethlehem and heading for Golgotha, Jesus invites people to follow Him. From one disciple to another, the invitation is to come and see the One whom Moses and the prophets foretold—Israel’s Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, our Lord and our God.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “God Loves Me Dearly” based on John 1:43-51.

Sunday Morning Worship - 01/07/2018

Friday, January 5, 2018

Jesus began His work for our salvation when He became man at Christmas. He began His active work shedding the first drops of redeeming blood at His circumcision. Now He takes His place alongside all mankind as He stands in the Jordan River. At His Baptism, He receives the Holy Spirit, and a voice from heaven declares, “You are My beloved Son.” Beginning now, our Lord lives for us sinless under the Law of God as He does all the way to His ultimate work of deliverance, shedding His blood on the cross. We take comfort that our Savior is with us, right alongside, with His Word and Spirit to enable us to live holy lives by faith and with the boldness of the cross, following Him. Our Baptism is for us the beginning of the new, eternal life that unites us with God both now and forever.

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Joshua Baumann's message is titled “Beloved!” based on Mark 1:11.

Sunday New Years Eve Worship

Saturday, December 30, 2017

Not only has the Lord come to a manger in Bethlehem, but now He has also come to His own temple in Jerusalem. The building that itself was to be a sign of God’s presence among His people now becomes the very place where Jesus is presented to the Lord. Promised for centuries, salvation has come, and all nations shall see the glory of the Lord. As Simeon beholds this glory in the face of Jesus Christ, he embraces redemption in his arms. Through the Word you will hear and the Supper you will receive today, you, too, will embrace Christ and His saving work. Sing of His glory! God has come to you!

Please join us for Sunday worship at 8:20 AM or 11:00 AM.  Pastor Cory J. Rajek's message is titled “Seeing the Faithfulness of God” based on Luke 2:21.

Christmas Worship Services - 2017

Thursday, December 21, 2017

“Glory to God in the highest!” The expression of praise by the heavenly host on the night when Jesus was born into our world has echoed through the ages. As we gather for this most special day, we find joy in repeating the words of God’s heavenly messengers. The angels proclaimed a message of peace and good will, a word from God that was appearing in the Word made flesh— the baby Jesus born to bring the light of redemption to a people on earth lost in darkness. “Gloria in excelsis Deo!” Whether we are singing in English or Latin or some other language, the message of the words is what matters. We worship our Lord and rejoice in the glory of Christmas!

Come join us Christmas Eve at 5:00 pm or 7:30 pm and again Christmas Day at 9:00 am.

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

Saturday, December 2, 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.

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.

Sunday's bulletin can be found at this Bulletins Link.
