The Focus of Our Worship
Be Willing To Leave Whatever Jesus Calls You To Leave.

As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." At once they left their nets and followed him.

Evangelism Thought for the Week:
Jesus calls us to follow him through his Word, through Holy Baptism, through his message that comes through a Christian equipped with His Word. You have been given that Word of God, the Word of His power. Take what you know and share with all the Savior who came for all, so that they too may rejoice in the one who brings life and light.

Thursday Evening Bible Class:
We continue our study of the book of Acts, come and see how the Lord was with His people as they carried the life giving message of the gospel to every nation. We are still beneficiaries of this work that started almost 2000 years ago.

Sunday Morning Bible Class:
Today we continue our study on the book of the Revelation. There is a lot of misunderstanding about this book. Come learn what the Lord tells us in the final book of Scripture.
