Midweek Lenten Sermon Series

This year during our Lenten midweek series we will be “Walking in Y’shua’s Footprints.” This sermon series follows Jesus as he observes the Jewish festivals mandated by God and observed by Jews in his day; Rosh HaShannah (Trumpets), Yom Kippur (Atonement), Sukkot (Tabernacles), Chanukkah (Dedication),  Purim (Lots), and Pesach (Passover).

Merry Christmas!

In the midst of all of the Hustle and Bustle of the season, take some time to be spiritually refreshed through God’s Holy Word and His Blessed Sacrament.  Having been blessed in this way,  you can be a blessing to others too!

What a Success!

We served over 300 people in our community free ice cream cones at Music in Park this year!  Thank you to all of our volunteers who made this possible.  Great music, wonderful fellowship, and cool ice cream made for a fantastic evening.  We can’t wait for next year!
