Dear Friends in Christ -

Tomorrow, our son Oliver turns two-years-old. It is hard for us to remember what life was like without him. At the same time, we know that we are not out of the woods. Every new day presents new joys and challenges, celebrations and sorrows. 
 
The same is true of our life of faith. The way that things were and the way that things are when we encounter the mercy and grace of God are never the same. While we still struggle with temptation and sin, there is forgiveness and freedom found through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. While we are never out of the woods from all that the world and the devil will throw our way, we can know for certain that God is faithful to meet us where we are and journey with us--that we might know is constant presence through his Holy Spirit. 
 
Thankful for Faith - 
Pastor Culynn

If you didn't grow up in church, you were raised in a non-Lutheran home, or didn't pay attention during Confirmation, we've got an opportunity for you.
On Sundays after worship, Pastor Culynn will lead a 5 session "Confirmation Refresher Course". We will meet following the second service (11:45am) to learn about key Lutheran teachings and answer any questions you might have. Join us to freshen up your Lutheran identity!

Dear Friends in Christ -

Yesterday we celebrated our Fall Ministry Kick Off! It is a wonderful celebration when God gathers us back together from exciting summer adventures and places us under the umbrella of his Word and promises. We installed Faith Formation teachers, enjoyed two beautiful worship services, and the church council met to begin a long-range planning (more information will be forthcoming). This coming Wednesday, September 13, Confirmation and The112 begin as well. All that we do together shapes and encourages us in the life of faith to the glory of God. 
 
Blessings as Fall Kicks Off in Life also!
