May 31, 2020 Day of Pentecost

Welcome to worship with us! Today we celebrate the Day of Pentecost, which was the day over 2000 years ago that God sent the promised Holy Spirit to Jesus' disciples. God promised the Holy Spirit centuries before that day through the prophet Joel, "I will pour out my Spirit" (2:28). The Spirit is still poured out on us through the gospel in Word and sacraments. The Spirit empowers us to be witnesses of Christ's resurrection for the world. — Personal prayer...

May 24, 2020 ~ Easter 7

Welcome to worship with us! The Redeemer lives! This last Sunday of the Easter season follows the Sunday of Jesus' ascension. Jesus has removed his visible presence from us, but he has not removed his effective presence from us. He is fully present in the message of the gospel, which tells us he prayed for us the night before he died. He prays for us still in heaven that we be set apart from sin. God has answered his prayer.   —    Personal prayer...

May 21, 2020 ~ Ascension

 Welcome to worship with us! Vererable Bede was the great teacher of the middle ages, the first great historian of the English language, and a devout man of God. He died on May 25, 735 AD, on the great Ascension Vigil. From his deathbed he spoke the words that match the tone for the day of Ascension. The tone is one of praise to our triumphant Ruler Jesus. Jesus ascended to sit at God’s right hand 40 days after he rose from the dead and he lives to rule all things for the Church. As...

May 17, 2020 ~ Easter 6

Welcome to worship with us! The Redeemer Lives! This Jesus Christ lives to call me to live for him. Jesus' promise of another Counselor is a loaded one: the Holy Spirit gives us the ability to do what Jesus asks. This Sunday's lessons teach that love for our risen Lord means obedience to his commands.   — Personal prayer before worship: Lord Jesus, you are life! This means you are holy - pure, sinless, set apart. This means you are righteous - morally perfect. Because...

May 10, 2020 Easter 5

Welcome to worship with us! The Redeemer Lives! This Jesus Christ lives to be the only Way to heaven. He doesn't say, "I show you the way," or "I have the truth," or "I lead to life." He says, "I am the way and the truth and the life." Are those words of Jesus enough for you? We may have a hard time saying, "Yes," because we think there are many other ways, and truths, and lives to live to find peace. You can trust that Jesus is enough. He...

May 3, 2020 Easter 4

Welcome to worship with us on this Good Shepherd Sunday!  The Redeemer Lives! Today we hear, He lives to be my Good Shepherd. Today’s service only infers that Jesus is our Good Shepherd though. An even greater focus is Jesus’ “I am” statement that sets the direction for this Sunday. He says, “I am the gate for the sheep” (John 10:7). The world leads the sheep, like you, me and all believers in Christ, to believe that there are other...
