​​​​Bible Study & Faith Discussions was started in order to focus on various readings, books, verses, people of faith,
& other general topics. The groups members offer various points of view while reviewing the Bible & various aspects
of their faith together in order to develop a better understanding of God's Word & Various Belief Structures. Members support each other in their thoughts & beliefs. We welcome everyone to gather together to explore the Word & Faith.

​What makes the Lutheran confession of faith unique? Why is Lutheran worship different than at the church next door? Does it have to be confusing? If you're a lifelong Lutheran looking to dig deeper, new to Lutheranism and want answers, or are just curious about the Lutheran church-this is for you! Come join us in exploring Lutheranism 101 starting in September of 2022. 

Bible Study & Faith Discussions on Wednesdays at 7PM.

The Sunday School Program is working on educating the upcoming generation to be able to pick up the
cross after us. The program consists of education through scripture, crafts, games, videos, & various other
activities. The children participate in Operation Christmas Child & help out with the Hat, Mitten, & Scarf Tree.

Children of all ages welcome to attend on Sundays from 9AM to 10AM.

Heroes of The Bible is in Full Swing.... Come Explore, Learn, and Have Fun!!!

The Morning Blessing
In the morning, as soon as you get out of bed, you are to make the sign of the holy cross and say:
God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit watch over me. Amen.

Then, kneeling or standing, say:

The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.


I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

And

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

If you wish, you may recite this little prayer as well:
I give thanks to you, heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ your dear Son, that you have protected me through the night

from all harm and danger. I ask that you would also protect me today from sin and all evil, so that my life and actions

may please you. Into Your hands I commend myself; my body, my soul, and all that is mine. Let your holy angel

be with me, so that the wicked foe may have no power over me. Amen.

After singing a hymn, or whatever else may serve your devotion, you are to go to work joyfully.

The Evening Blessing

In the evening, when you go to bed, you are to make the sign of the holy cross and say:
God the Father, Son, and of the Holy Spirit watch over me. Amen.

Then, kneeling or standing, say:

The Apostle’s Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

And

The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.

If you wish, you may recite this little prayer as well:
I give thanks to you, heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ your dear Son, that you have graciously protected me today.

I ask you to forgive me all my sins, where I have done wrong, and graciously to protect me tonight.

Into your hands I commend myself; my body, my soul, and all that is mine.

Let your holy angel be with me, so that the wicked foe may have no power over me. Amen.

Then you are to go to sleep quickly and cheerfully.
