News & Announcements
WORSHIP ON WEDNESDAYS (W.O.W.): will be available for those who miss worship on Sunday. Services will be every Wednesday evening beginning at 6:15 p.m., and will continue year round. Each Wednesday uses the previous Sunday’s sermon and hymns in a more relaxed and simpler format. Holy Communion will be celebrated on the third Wednesday of the month.
GENESIS "HIS"tory: is the sermon series for 2022. So much of what we read in the rest of the Bible begins in Genesis. Genesis is a masterfully told narrative that will connect us to “front-page” issues of today. Genesis is more than history – it is His story. It is God’s Word speaking directly into our lives.
BIBLE STUDY-SUNDAY, JUNE 26: We the Church: The Priesthood of All Believers. The formation and growth of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod in the United States is examined in this video resource from Lutheran Hour Ministries. It features expert commentary, instructive graphics, and details the Christ-centered mission and potential of the LCMS. Here’s a little more information on the video—From immigrant communities of German Christians to a mainline denomination of more than 6,000 congregations, We the Church: The Priesthood of All Believers focuses on the origin and development of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) and how the early LCMS met the outreach challenges of its new "American" setting. Beyond the historical context, this video resource examines how early church leaders viewed the role of laity inside and outside of the church. It also challenges today's church members to embrace their rich heritage as disciples by sharing the message of hope we have in Christ Jesus. Bible study meets in the fellowship hall from 9:30-10:30 with refreshments.
SUNDAY SCHOOL: Neighborhood Bible time: Thirsty? Jesus is the Living Water! He is our source of life! Whoever drinks the water I give will never thirst.

June 26: God continues to pour into us through His Word in a really cool way: by the extended Green family as they uniquely share the Good News of God's salvation plan for me and you through the account of Creation! We are part of the story!
Family challenge: Discover answers together as you take a walk together or take a boat ride! What does the word beginning mean? What does the word Creator mean? Name some things God created. What did God do on the seventh day? How does the truth of the beginning, God's creation, give us living water, bringing us life now, that wells up in us springs of water flowing to ETERNAL life?
