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.



  1. Let us listen to one of the Lutheran Hours special messages, a classic from its August Archives brought to us from Guest Speaker, Rev. Dr. Dale A. Meyer, as we revisit a message titled, “An Open Mind for the Future,”  from Acts 17:18-32.    August Archives – Closing our minds to spiritual fads and embracing the words of Jesus opens up a great future for all who believe.   Next week’s message is titled, “Does He Know You?”
