New Sunday Morning Bible Study

Beginning this weekend, February 27
In this course, Rev. Dr. Wade Johnston (Wisconsin Lutheran College) will lead us in an exploration of one of the earliest challenges that sprang up among the congregations founded by the Apostle Paul. While the law of God is good and wise, it cannot deliver salvation. No law can do that. Salvation is a gift. Nevertheless, some insisted that Christians must still observe certain Old Testament ceremonial laws in order to be righteous. In response, Paul warned that Christ would be of no advantage to those who did so. Together we will explore why, using Paul’s Letter to the Galatians as our guide. Click here for class video and materials.

Voters' Call Meeting

After receiving congregational input, the Church Council acted upon the Board of Elders’ recommendation to issue a call for a pastor.

A voters’ call meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall, and more complete rationale for this decision will be provided at the meeting. All voters and interested parties are encouraged to attend.
