TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR MONEY FOR GOOD (Financial Peace University)

How have you been handling finances during the COVID-19 pandemic? How were you handling your finances before the pandemic? Would you like to live and give like no one else? The sooner in life we plan for our financial future, the better financial future we will have!

Planning for the future is hard when you’re still paying for the past! There is a better way! Join Financial Peace University (FPU) and you will learn how to beat debt and make a plan for your future! Interested? Virtual classes begin at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, September 16. You can sign up for FPU at, or at the church office. The first 14 days of FPU are free! For more information, please see Pastor Adelsen.

“Sharing Christ, Changing Lives

What is the Divine Service?

The Divine Service is where God promises to meet us in His Word and Sacraments.
 It is where God comes to bestow us with His blessings, promises, comfort, and forgiveness for our sins.
Once we receive these free gifts, we give back to God and serve one another.
It is where, God, the Divine, serves us.
Visitors, thank you for being here today and please fill out a welcome card found in the cardholder slots
 in your pew. You may tear off the top portion to keep, and place the bottom in the offering plate.
Members, please use these cards only to notify the Church Office of any changes or needs. Thank you.
Blue Binders in the pews are for signing in for Communion only.
COMMUNION POLICY: We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a Sacrament in which Christ’s Body and Blood are given in and with the bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins (Matt. 26:26-28). When we receive Holy Communion at a church, we show that we agree with the faith that is taught there (1 Cor. 10:14-18). St. Paul cautions us about receiving the Body and Blood of Christ in an unworthy manner (1 Cor. 11:27-29). Therefore, we invite to Holy Communion those who have received instruction in the teachings of the Lutheran Church and who agree with the confession of faith as taught in the LC-MS. If you are not a member of an LCMS church, we kindly ask that you speak to one of the pastors.
