Revamping of the Visitation Committee

Revamping of Committee
We are in the process of starting back up the Visitation Committee. We are looking for a handful of folks who have a calling to visit our homebound members and occasionally to visit those in the hospital. Meetings would be minimum. The emphasis of this committee will be to work hand-in-hand with Pastor Fischer in these areas of ministry. If you are interested, simply contact the pastor via email, cell phone, or in person.

Reformation Sunday 10/29/2017

On this day we remember Martin Luther, born in 1483, nine years before Columbus discovered America. He studied law at the age of 21; became a priest at 23 and a doctor of theology at 28; wrote and nailed the 95 thesis at age 33 and 34; was ex-communicated and became a fugitive at 38; translated the Bible into German at 40; and died from a stroke at the age of 63, an internationally admired leader. His teachings stressed justification by faith, universal priesthood of believers; and supremacy of scripture which form the cornerstone of Protestantism.

We had with a visit today by “Martin Luther” who re-posted his
95 thesis on our church door.

We  also were able to interview him
