Reformation Worship Service

This week we acknowledge that God alone deserves the glory for the rescue he has accomplished for us. 500 years ago people were more likely to give glory to their rituals and behavior than to God. Today people are very interested in how God should glorify us with happiness and fulfillment, but not so interested in finding happiness and fulfillment in the gifts God has already given. Therefore, half a millennium later, we still confess that God has saved us in Christ, and we are more than happy to thank him by saying, "To God alone be the glory!" Still.d

Summer Sunday School

At A Mighty Fortress kids will learn that God is our mighty fortress who fights for us and protects us. Kids learn early that they can’t win every game, ace every test, or conquer every challenge. But, they can confidently celebrate that Jesus, their champion, has won the victory over sin, death, and Satan.  Because the victory is won, every day is a day to celebrate! God’s victory is shown in the Bible accounts of the fall of Jericho, God’s rescue of King Hezekiah’s kingdom, King Josiah’s reading of God’s Word, the Savior King’s triumphal entry, and Jesus’ victory through His death and resurrection. We will also be learning about and supporting the WELS European chaplaincy program, including Pastor Stuppy, who is serving our fellow believers in Germany and other parts of Europe. This program is aimed at kids in Kindergarten through grade six and will begin on June 18th. If you are interested in helping with decorating or crafts, or if have any questions contact the Church Office.

Pentecost Worship Service

Pentecost Worship Service

I will pour out my Spirit. God’s Old Testament people celebrated the gathering of the harvest at the Festival of Weeks. On the fiftieth day, God sent the promised Counselor on the day we call “Pentecost” (Greek for “fifty” from in Leviticus 23:15). This day marked the birthday of the New Testament Church and celebrates the harvest of souls won by the Son and gathered by his servants empowered by his Spirit. Pentecost is the third great festival of the Church and has been commemorated since at least 217 A.D. The Church dresses in red to remind us of the tongues of fire that marked the Spirit’s gift and the blood of the martyrs which was the seed of the Church. This day culminates the Season of Easter when our risen Lord now empowers his people to be witnesses of the resurrection for the world.

Ascension Worship Service

Ascension Worship Service

You are invited to our special midweek worship service to celebrate Christ’s return to his throne after his resurrection. Jesus Ascension reminds us that Christ rules all things for the good of his Church.  Join us for this joyful worship service at 7:00 pm. Following the worship service, we will again head to the Chelsea Dairy Queen for our annual “Ascension Day Ice Cream.” Hope you can make it to worship our risen and ascended Savior!

In the early 700s AD, there lived an English churchman known to history as the Venerable Bede. He was the great teacher of the middle ages, the man who divided history into AD and BC, the first great historian of the English language and a devout man of God. On May 25, 735 AD, on the great Ascension Vigil, Bede finished his translation of the Gospel of St. John into Old English. Then, on that day of Ascension, he died. From his deathbed, the Teacher of the Middle Ages spoke the words that have become the Prayer of the Day on Ascension. This beautiful prayer sets the tone for the day, beginning with a note of triumph and ending with a supplication for the Spirit and his work. 

Lord Jesus, King of glory, on this day you ascended far above the heavens and at God’s right hand you rule the nations. Leave us not alone, we pray, but grant us the Spirit of truth that at your command and by your power we may be your witnesses in all the world; for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
