Welcome 

Along with the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.  As "Lutherans," our congregations accept and teach Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone. Here you will find information concerning our church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Our church is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and to call on us for anything you need. Feel free to browse our website and learn more about our christian fellowship.  If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we invite you to visit and experience our worship and fellowship and get to know us. When you visit our church, you will find:

* A caring and welcoming congregation
* Teaching centered on the Word of God
* Ministries for spiritual needs of all ages

  • COVID-19 Alert and Response

    PASTOR BEN PERKINS AND OUR WORSHIP TEAM WILL BE LIVE STREAMING WORSHIP SERVICES ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS AT 7:00 PM AND SUNDAY MORNINGS AT 9:00 AM - CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE STREAMING

    In these surreal days of Coronavirus, social distancing, self-quarantine, and a plethora of social media posts asking for your cooperation and partnership as our community deals with the ever changing directives, it is easy to become confused. There is one story of a God fearing woman, who loved her church and attended worship twice a week while she was infected. She also visited other large gatherings during this time which began an exponential spread.

    We all have sacrifices to make individually for the greater good of our nation. We have been asked by our city and state officials to suspend all gatherings of 10 people or more as President Trump has requested of our nation. This should not be interpreted as an attempt to squelch our right to worship, but rather a call for us all to love others in a way that may mean reduced personal contact for a short period of time.

    • “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” - Matthew 22:37-40
       
    • “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” - Galatians 6:10
       
    • “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.” - Romans 13:1-2
       

    We will find unique ways to hold gatherings via email, phone and social media platforms and we will band together as churches to call each of our members and especially the elderly in the community to check up on them, pray with them, and seek out their needs and how we might help. Thank you all for your understanding and cooperation and for your continued spread of the good news and spiritual leadership more than ever.

  • Prayer: Worship

    Father bring us to Your house. Change the way we think about time. Reorder our priorities until You are first and biggest and most important. Draw us into Your presence with loud songs of praise. In our prayers, our devotions, and our worship life make communion with You our first thought each day. Make our walk with Your Son the biggest part of our lives. With every step, bring us closer to the prize found only in Christ. You live and reign—one God, now and forever. Amen

     

  • Prayer: Stewardship

    Master, Give me a steward's heart today. Help me be faithful with all You have entrusted to my care. Make me efficient with my time, sparing with my words, and thrifty with Your treasure. Grant that my spending be wise and my giving represent my gratitude. Amen.

     

  • Prayer: Life

    Lord, You give us the breath of life and have given us new life—even eternal life; You love every precious life. God, we find ourselves in a land where life has been devalued. It has become a commodity to be bought and sold at no high price. Forgive us our inaction as so many lives are being neglected, taken, sold, and squandered. Show our culture the value of life. Guide our feet and our hands and our mouths—to go and to act and to speak. Wherever life is threatened or cheapened or disregarded make us defend and preserve life in the unborn, the untimely born, the infirm, the ill, the underprivileged, and the elderly. Watch over every precious life.Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Amen.
