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.”

Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! Jesus satisfied God's demands for perfection. His righteousness is ours by faith. We do not accept any substitutes, even if they are cleverly disguised in Jesus' name.
Thank you to Pastor Ellery Groth for bringing us God's Word this morning! Pastor Welch is preaching at the congregations Pastor Groth serves: Grace, Clear Lake and Zion, Almena, WI.
The point here dare not be lost. It is not that anyone who wants to be or claims to be a preacher is one. For the text expressly tells us that the Spirit of God did indeed rest on these two men, so that they prophesied in accord with God's will and Word. They preached with an immediate call, even though that call had not been publicly attested, as was the call of seventy. The point rather is the humility of Moses. He rejoiced in the gifts that God gave to his people and desired that those gifts be even more abundant to the glory of God and the benefit of God's children. Service to the glory of God is our goal, be it that of the greatness of the prophets, that of the seventy chosen by God to assist, or that of those in the assembly with still other gifts from the Lord. For not one of us has all of God's gifts; the needs of each, no matter how gifted, should keep each one humble as each looks for his God-given opportunities to serve, while giving thanks for the gifts and service of others.
