Oct. 15, 2017   The 19th Sunday after Pentecost

God has worked faith in our hearts to respond in joy to His gracious invitation. But our preoccupation with our personal agendas and the world’s allure can turn our hearts away. Jesus couches that problem in a parable. Worse, we might think that we can enter heaven, the eternal banquet, on our terms, supposing we need not be clothed in Christ’s righteousness alone. Yet God’s preoccupation is to keep sending out His special invitation to one and all. What joy Paul leads us in as he writes the Epistle! Our current circumstances mean nothing compared to the eternal banquet to which we are invited by the overflowing grace of God.

         Isaiah 25:6-9          Philippians 4:4-13          st Matthew 22:1-14


Bible Study Series

Explore the past through the people who have lived it; you will meet 25 men and women passionate about the Reformation!

Click on the Bible Study page, and read about a new person each week! This week, we added Martin Chemnitz.


Prayer is the most valuable gift we can give someone experiencing hardships or illness. If you or someone you know is in need of prayer, please call our church office at 442-5675 or email

Do you have a special occasion coming up?

SOMETHING NEW! Give glory to God in remembrance of loved ones or in honor of your special occasions, like birthdays and anniversaries! We are now offering the opportunity for two families to signup on each Sunday! The cost will remain $35 per family. When there are two sponsors, the bouquets will be larger and each family may take one after the service. 

 For just $30, you can sponsor a Sunday Service folder! It helps cover our printing costs, and you can recognize a special occasion (like a Wedding Anniversary; or a Memorial) or simply donate it to the glory of God!
