Children Sunday School

Today in Sunday School, we study the calling of Jesus’ first disciples with “Jesus Calls Philip and Nathanael.” In Jesus, access to heaven is given to all who believe. You might discuss, “How did Philip and Nathanael know that Jesus was the Christ? How do we learn that Jesus is the Christ?”

Life Quotes

“And what about those mothers who acted on their fears and aborted their child? We need to be there for them as well, assuring them of a loving, merciful, forgiving God—reminding them that there is no sin that Jesus did not pay for on the cross!” Duane Matz, former lay pastor with the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC) and Christian radio announcer. (For those who have made an abortion decision, there is a Word of Hope, Lutherans For Life’s post-abortion healing ministry. Call 888.217.8679 or email

Easter Puppets

Inconceivable! The Easter puppets are back! This year’s Marionette production is entitled “John’s Account of Easter”. Each of the gospel writers brought out different details in their testimonies, for example, in last year’s production, based on Luke, we heard from the criminals on the cross. This year’s play we will see Peter’s reinstallation.
