2019 Bible Reading Plan

Dear Friends in Christ,

Our Lutheran heritage celebrates Luther’s emphasis on “By Scripture Alone”.  For too long the common person had had too little opportunity for individual exposure to the Word.  Luther was dedicated to put the Word into the hands of the people and to instruct them in the truths of Scripture. Couple that with Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press and the availability of the Word began to be more common. Today the explosion of Scripture availability is proof of God’s intent to have all men to be saved and to bring the saving gospel into all the world.

Last year your Spiritual Growth Committee encouraged you to read The Daily Bible, a unique chronological arrangement of the Scriptures.  For those of you that followed the readings we pray that you have been blessed by reading.  If anyone might be interested in doing the reading this year read more online or contact the church office and get the short introduction booklets that provide focus on each day’s readings.

Today we have multiple ways in which we can be in the Word.  Using your own Bible and doing some research you can find multiple reading plans.  Online resources and a variety of Bible translations are readily available. Continue reading “2019 Bible Reading Plan”

THANK YOU

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your expressions of love and encouragement during Pastor Appreciation month. We greatly appreciate your prayers, thoughtfulness and words of kindness.

We are blessed to share in the Lord’s work and ministry together with you. We rejoice in the good news that God has made us his own dear children and promises us a life with him forever. As Paul wrote to the Ephesians, may we continue “to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that we may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3).

 In Christ,

 Pastor Wagner, Mr. Hering and the entire pastoral staff
