God Be With You
Til We Meet Again.
 
As the Coronavirus continues to unfold, know that the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
God is always with you.
As we face uncertainty of what lies ahead, we will shoulder this together. If you are able and willing to help someone in need, contact Karen from Social Ministry. Please keep in contact with those that may be isolated thru texts, e-mails or a phone call, and continue to share your stewardship as best you can.
 
Faith
A living, daring confidence in Gods grace.
When Lutherans talk about faith, we are talking about the relationship God’s Holy Spirit creates with us. Its a relationship where God’s promise of steadfast love and mercy in Jesus opens us to a life of bold trust in God and joyful, generous service to everyone we know and meet in daily life.
