Our Mission...... As men, women, and children united in faith in Christ Jesus, we believe he commanded us to “go and make disciples.” We therefore will proclaim the Gospel of Christ through our words and actions to the community, campus, and others. We will teach God’s word in its truth and purity to help each other grow and mature in faith preparing us, God’s people, for “works of service.”

Peter tells the Jewish high council that Jesus lives and reigns as the Savior of all people. Peter quotes the prophecy in Psalm 118, which speaks of Christ as the stone that the builders rejected, who has become the capstone.

Pastor Clayton Welch Speaks on the Word of God from Jeremiah 31:31-34.The Lord promises a new covenant for his people, a covenant of the full and free forgiveness of sins. Through this covenant the Lord would set apart a holy people who would know him fully “from the least of them to the greatest.”
John 8:12 Jesus...said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows mewill never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
Does peoples skepticism keep John 3:16 off our lips? May familiarity not breed contempt with us! We do not need to come up with some novel, smooth, or mathematical way to preach on this reading for you. Sharing the Word was good enough for Jesus, and it's good enough for us.
This is an argument from the greater to the lesser. Since God is for us, and since he did not spare his own Son to free us from the condemnation of sin, non of the troubles we have in this life can separate us from God’s love.
The appearance of Moses and Elijah with Chrsit gave Peter, James, and John a foretaste of heaven. They wanted to keep this taste of heaven on earth.
Special thanks for Vacancy Pastor Roger Vomhof, serving our brothers and sisters in the Faith at Emmanuel, Hudson, for brining us God's Word today. Pastor Vomhof and Pastor Welch switched pulpits as part of the circuit puilpit rotation.
Shortly after his baptism, Jesus returns to Galilee. He heals Peter’s mother-in-law, as well as the sick and demon-possessed, and he makes a preaching tour throughout the region. Jesus shows that the kingdom of God has come in might and mercy.
Jesus proclaims the gospel loud and clear, â€œRepent and believe the good news!â€ After this, Jesus calls Simon and Andrew to be â€œfishers of men.â€ James and John also leave their nets to follow Jesus.
Almighty and everlasting God, give us an increase of faith, hope, and love; and, that we may obtain what you promise, make us love what you command; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! Our fellowship with Christ severs our fellowship with evil. Our peace in Christ will cause division and strife with those who still cling to their fellowship with evil.
When we are at peace with God, we are, of necessity, at war with the world, which has rejected our Savior. Our love for Jesus may sever the closest bonds of human love, or it may cost us our lives. We can be sure that when we suffer crosses with Jesus, we will receive eternal life by the grace of God. Likewise, the most insignificant act of mercy done out of faith in Jesus will receive God's eternal favor.
Jesus plainly tells us about the crosses we will bear as his disciples. We can expect the world to treat us no better than it treated our Master. What a comfort to know that our life, death, and eternal future are in the hands of a God who gives loving attention to creatures far less significant than we are! He takes careful inventory of the smallest details of our lives. Therefore, we are bold and cheerful in proclaiming his gospel in a hostile world.
