Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!

Blessings to you all!

I pray that the Lord may grant you His continued peace as you go through this time. I know it may be overwhelming, and I pray that His Word may be the lamp unto your feet as you face the days and weeks ahead. Remember the words of Jesus, “Peace be with you”[Jn 20:19]. Though our eyes see one thing, our faith sees another. The Lord’s peace surpasses all understanding, and in Him, just as He says to the disciples, “Peace be with you”. As Jesus stood amongst them, Christ’s words of peace was rooted in His resurrection. And though danger may be in our midst and the cause of fear, worry, and anxiety at a boiling point- remember the words, “Peace be with you”.

For your peace is in the blood of The Lamb, Jesus Christ who not only died but rose for you. Reconciling you to the Father, you are His own. I pray the Lord may continue to guide you in the faith as we live in these interesting times. If you ever need anything, I’m always here. Only a phone call away.

A few notes for you.

  1. We will resume Holy Communion this week after Sunday Service. I will take the utmost strict and stringent steps to provide a safe place for you to commune. Please stay in your car until you are invited to come in.
  2. Wednesday Service will resume this week on April 22nd at 7pm. Please join in on Facebook Live or YouTube as we journey together in the Word.
  3. Devotions on Facebook Live [Tues to Sat @ 9am] Join in! These are also archived on our website under the Devotions tab.
    You do not need a facebook account to view

    We discuss several themes throughout the week:

    • Law and Gospel’s Tuesday’s - discussing Sunday sermon with the Law and Gospel. A great way to learn on the “how to listen” and “what to look for” in the sermon.
    • Catechetical Word Wednesday’s - reviewing Luther’s Small Catechism. Always reviewing and learning something new.
    • Theological Thursday - discussing theological terms for the betterment of our faith.
    • Sermon Preview Friday - previewing the upcoming readings for Sunday. A great way to be prepared for Sunday morning service.
    • Saturday Morning Bible Story Time - geared towards children [but all ages welcome]. Songs, readings, and crafts are given for the hearer to immerse themselves in important stories of the bible.
    If your schedule conflicts with this time, all is not lost! You may watch at your leisure as all devotions are archived on our facebook page and web site. I encourage everyone to listen and engage in the Word in these important times.
  4. Bible Study - we will resume in the coming weeks, as we are still figuring out the best way to provide an efficient learning environment.

Until next time,

Blessings to you in the Lord’s Resurrection!
