175th ANNIVERSARY celebration continues

- MARK YOUR CALENDARS NOW

May 14, 2017 (Mother’s Day) – 4:00 pm Bach Cantata that will include our choir, and guest chamber orchestra.

Matthew Sheppard, conductor

Please check back to our website as dates are finalized for a guest choir concert and a Hymn Festival to dedicate the new Steinway Grand Piano


 Ash Wednesday and we will gather at 12:10

and 7:00pm to begin our Lenten Journey. 


Each week we will gather on Wednesday evening for Dinner and Devotions.  Simple dinners of soup and sandwiches will begin at 6:00 pm with devotions following at 7:00 pm. 

Our theme for devotions this Lent is Luther’s Small Catechism using hymns, written by Luther and other reformers, to help people understand the various parts of the catechism the Ten Commandment, Apostles Creed, Holy Baptism, Holy Communion, and the Lord’s Prayer.  

There will be a sign-up sheet for persons who want to provide soup and sandwiches for these Wednesday simple meals. I hope members and friends take advantage of these special times to enjoy some fellowship as we reflect on how we can better relate to God in very special ways.  Full Lenten Schedules are on the back window or click the link:   LENTEN SCHEDULE
