Advice to Flatten the Curve

  • If you are sick, or have been caring for sick people, stay home!
  • If you are in a high risk category for the virus, please to stay home.
  • Please socially distance yourself as a precaution, that too, is a faithful response.

Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples. Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to do everything I have told you. I will be with you always, even until the end of the earth.

Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

Our altar window above


"Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.” And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.” And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Again, for the second time, he went away and prayed, “My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, your will be done.” And again he came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy. So, leaving them again, he went away and prayed for the third time, saying the same words again. Then he came to the disciples and said to them, “Sleep and take your rest later on. See, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise, let us be going; see, my betrayer is at hand."


Matthew 26:36-56

Pr. Dave's Installation


On the afternoon of August 26, 2018 we welcomed Bishop Gohl to install Pr. Dave officially as our associate pastor.


On the evening of September 12, 2019 at 7 pm in the Main Sanctuary Pastor Dave was ordained as a Lutheran Pastor. There was a rainbow over the church before the service and a massive traffic jam, but it was a beautiful and meaningful service.
