Northern California Fire Distruction


Former members, the Tiedemann's, evacuated from the Camp Fire in Northern California. This is a picture of their church, Our Savior Lutheran in Paradise, CA. The church, day care, and parsonage were destroyed but, the cross still stands.

Welcome First Time Attenders!

We are happy that you are here to worship with us this morning. Please join us for coffee in the Narthex after the service so that we have an opportunity to meet you and answer any questions you may have about our church.

Children's Sunday School


The account of God giving “The Ten Commandments” to Moses is today’s Sunday School lesson. The children will learn that the law was given through Moses but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. Talk about God’s laws and how they guide us and show us our sin when we cannot keep them. Ask your children,Who kept the Law perfectly for us?” Though we sin much, daily we have God’s forgiveness because of Christ, His Son.

Hurricane Relief Team

WOW! WOW! WOW!  We had about 20 people show up first thing this morning and we got the truck unloaded. It took about 2 hours.  There was a group of organizationally gifted ladies and gentlemen that got everything sorted.  That only took about 3 hours.  So… those tasks are completed!  Praise the Lord!!!  Stephanie Lawson is coordinating delivery of everything.  Her contact information is stephanie.lawson412@gmail.com or text her at 850-687-6253.  If you will text or email her, she is compiling her own list of volunteers to keep them informed and to schedule deliveries of all the supplies.  The supplies are going to several different places, contact Stephanie to see if you are able to make a delivery.  I will be out of the office until Monday morning, so don’t email me questions or to see what’s going on, please contact Stephanie Lawson (supply delivery) or Don Panzenhagen at 850-420-1654 (work groups). Thank you so much for your willingness to help!!

Life Quote


“God adopts. The Gospel is about adoption. Salvation’s story can’t be told apart from adoption. Christianity can’t happen without it … Pharaoh’s daughter adopting Moses leads to the Hebrews ending up liberated … Joseph adopting Jesus sets in motion sinners getting forgiven. Father Almighty offers His Son and adopts human beings for us to have a faith relationship with the Lord God and the hope of resurrection to everlasting life in His heavenly kingdom. No wonder early Christians opened the world’s first orphanages.” Rev. Michael W. Salemink, executive director of Lutherans For Life – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life • www.lutheransforlife.org

Staffed Nursery

A STAFFED NURSERY is available to care for your young children during both services, including the Sunday school hour. There is also a CRY ROOM with sound and a window into the Sanctuary.
