The Church Council and Call Committee are actively looking for a Pastor. Watch for updates from Church Council President Tom Steinmann.
The theme of our worship on Easter 4 is "The Good Shepherd" John 10:11-18 Jesus said: "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." John 10:11 Jesus, as the good shepherd, takes care of us, his sheep. He gave his life for us. What love for his Father he had. What love he showers on us, his sheep. As the song by Brian Howard says, "I just want to be a sheep!" Come find out more at our Contemporary Service Saturday at 5:00 pm or our Traditional Services on Sunday at 8:00 am and 10:45 am.
Guest Officiant: Pastor Paul Schwartzkopf
