What Lutherans Believe
Through his ministry,
death and resurrection, Christ has saved us from "sin, death, and
the power of the devil." God's gift of faith in Christ's saving
power makes that saving power effective for us. In joy and freedom,
we respond to God's grace with praise and thankful service.

HEALING opportunity on the Fourth Sunday of Easter, April 26th The traditional “Good Shepherd Sunday” of the Easter season provides an opportunity for healing and the laying on of hands during Sunday morning worship. This year, there will be healing circles at worship on Sunday, April 26th at both 8 AM and 10:30 worship. As before, if you’d like prayers and the laying on of hands, simply come to the circle before or after communion. It is a time for reflection, supplications for peace and contentment. Just as the sheep are led to good pasture, clean and fresh water and space of safety and familiarity, so are we led by the Good Shepherd.
