Welcome to Worship:  Welcome to worship, where the Lord feeds us with His Word and shelters us in His love. Visitors please sign our guest register and come again very soon. Children, please help yourself to a Bible busy bag and a Children’s Worship Bulletin.

 The Lord’s Supper is a special celebration of the Gospel of God’s love, forgiveness, and salvation. This sacred meal is for those who repent of their sins, believe in Jesus as their Savior, and who hunger and thirst for God’s righteousness. Communion is also a holy union of God with His people and His people with each other. VISITORS who are members of LC-MS congregations are welcome to commune with us. Other visitors please check with Pastor before communing with us, or consult with purple folder in the pew Bibles for more information.
