by Miriam Rossow on June 30th, 2020

A Deacon Delivers
by Miriam Rossow on May 1st, 2020
This lesson shows us how God used a man, Philp, to help another man, the Ethiopian, understand God’s word. After the Ethiopian learned about God he wanted to be baptized, and Philip baptized him. We see how the Holy Spirit works through the Word and Baptism to give faith. Find the account of this story in Acts 8:26-40

A Revealing Truth
by Miriam Rossow on April 17th, 2020
The Road to Emmaus account is found in Luke 24:13-35. The word Emmaus means “hot springs.” Emmaus was a small village about 7 miles from Jerusalem. How far is church from your house? How far is the grocery store? Think about something that is about 7 miles from your house? Do you think you could walk there? In today’s lesson two men walked to Emmaus from Jerusalem, and Jesus walked with them.
He is Risen. He is Risen Indeed, Alleluia!
by Miriam Rossow on April 11th, 2020
ALLELUIA is a joyful expression meaning Praise the Lord! During Lent we omit the word Alleluia from our worship. Lent is a quiet, reflective season in the church year. Easter is a festive celebration of Jesus’ Resurrection when our Alleluias ring again loud and clear! Alleluia! Happy Easter! This lesson will show us why Easter makes us excited to celebrate! Jesus conquered death and rose from the dead, giving us eternal life in Him!
The Triumphal Entry

This Sunday is Palm Sunday which marks the first day of Holy Week. We remember Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey and the people there waving palm branches and shouting, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”
Jesus, Our Good Shepherd
by Miriam Rossow on March 27th, 2020
The current state of things in our world certainly can fill us with the fear of danger, specifically now as the virus is invading our lives in many ways, but thankfully we can rely on Jesus to be our Good Shepherd being with us at all times, protecting us.

by Miriam Rossow on November 4th, 2019
By Rev. Joel S. Eden, Associate PastorWe definitely want your kids with us in worship, because children grow in worship!Growth implies change, but growth does not always imply good change. A child can grow in maturity, skills, knowledge, wisdom, etc. but a child can also grow to be a real—umm—not-nice-person. (So can adults, by the way.) Growth can be good or bad.Once a strawberry seed begins to g...
