Welcome!
We extend a special welcome to our guests, visitors and all who join us in worship today. Please let us know of your
presence or any prayer requests you have by filling out one of the cards in the pew rack and placing them in the offering
plate. We hope that our church home becomes your church home and the spiritual place where you grow through the
Word of God.
Nursery care for children up to three years old is located on the main floor of the Welcome Center across from the library.
Older children attending the church service are encouraged to borrow a Toddler Tote filled with activities as you enter the
Sanctuary.
Concerning the Sacrament of the Altar
We believe that Jesus offers Himself to us in the Sacrament His true body and blood, for the forgiveness of sins. We also
share the scriptural concern for those who participate in the Lords supper that they recognize what they are receiving
(1 Corinthians 11:27). Therefore, we ask that all who desire to receive the Lords Supper please carefully examine
themselves using the communion information card found in the pew rack.
Communion is celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at both services.
For those who desire, we offer gluten-free wafers (please indicate your desire to the Pastor or Elder) and
non-alcoholic wine (located in the rose colored cups in the center of the individual cup tray).

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

Ein Feste Burg Ist Unser Gott


In remembrance of our German Lutheran heritage, the beam above the altar testifies of Gods abiding presence (drawing
from the popular hymn of the same title) upon which we can rely throughout our earthly lives.

The Book of Judges - Gods Kingdom Revealed Through Flawed Heroes


It is human nature to want to have larger-than-life heroes--men or women who rise above the fray, and do great things. This
is how we often view Bible heroes, and yet reality is somewhat different than our desires. Perhaps nowhere is this more
evident than in the book of Judges, an historical compilation of the leaders and rulers of Gods people from the time of the
culmination of the conquest of Canaan until the time of the Kings. What we discover in these stories is the furthering of
Gods Kingdom even (and especially?) through these flawed people. Join us on Sunday mornings this fall as we learn how
He did and how He still does today! Grab a cup of coffee and join Pastor Davis study group.
(Loomis Center)
The Great Deceiver This book takes a look at Scripture's most vile character: Satan. Though popular culture may paint
the devil as a buffoon-like character in a red jumpsuit, this depiction makes light of his sinister and diabolical nature. His
approach is straightforward; his objective is final: separate every man, woman and child from God forever. This class will be
led by Pat Croll. Please join us!
(Welcome Center - Library)
Gods Word for Today: Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah this continuing series tells of the call for God's people to
repent of their sins, to exercise justice among the oppressed, and to look to the Messiah. Although written against Nineveh,
Nahum brings "good news" to believers. In this evil world of ours, Habakkuk declares that "the righteous will live by...faith."
Zephaniah points to the "day of the LORD," when His people will be saved and the wicked punished. This study led by Tim
Gandre and Tony Rylander.
