I give thanks to all our members, along with their family and friends, for the strong attendance we saw for all of Holy Week: Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and especially Easter morning! All of this was done while still being able to have good social distancing.
I especially want to thank Andrea , our organist, for stepping up (as always!) to play for all of the extra services. Additionally, thanks is due to Miriam for playing at the 4:00 PM midweek, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday services.
I pray we that can continue to gather more and more in a safe manner during these days of Easter.

Later, I read through 1 Samuel 16 and 17 and was once again amazed at how intertwined Saul and David’s lives were. ... Read more
- The Sinner’s “Beautiful Virtue” (4/8/2021) - Luther knew how to teach with a sense of humor, even using sarcasm to help show us our wrongdoing. In teaching the 2nd Commandment, he lamented how little God’s name is faithfully invoked when we are in need. Rather, we are more likely to invoke God’s name to validate our lies and false testimony!
