Pastor's Message

altMORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!

Feeling that God is distant?
Want a stronger faith in Jesus?
Want to be in God's very presence?

Then be where He is in His Word and Sacraments.

Flashy? No! Comforting and powerful? Yes! God uses ordinary, common elements. But there is nothing ordinary and common about the awesome blessings He attaches to them by His Word of Grace and Power to accomplish great things in your life.

.

  • Baptism--not just simple water! St. Paul describes Baptism this way: "He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit" (Titus 3:5). The promises He first made to you in your Baptism He will always keep! Receive the comfort and power it gives you every day.

  • God's Word--His true and timeless Word for people of all ages and backgrounds, the promise of salvation by grace alone through faith for Jesus' sake! St. Paul writes: "I am not ashamed of the Gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes" (Romans 1:16). Receive the comfort and power it gives you every day.

  • Lord's Supper--not just simple bread and wine, but His very presence given to you in His true body and blood for the forgiveness of sins! Jesus was in the Upper Room celebrating the Passover with His disciples. After He took the bread and said: "This is My body, which is given for you," He took the cup, gave thanks, and offered it to His disciples, saying: "Drink from it, all of you. This is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins" (Matthew 26:27-28). Receive the comfort and power it gives you every day.

Look beyond what may, at first, seem to be ordinary and common. He gives you more than meets the eye! Lutherans rejoice that He comes to us every Sunday morning in Word and Sacraments in our Christ-centered Divine Service.

We invite you to become a member of our church family and to grow in your faith relationship with God in Jesus Christ, the Son of God and God the Son. He who gives you more than meets the eye proclaims words of comfort and power to one and all: "God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16).

In His joyful service,
Pastor William Fenker
