Stewardship Thought - Reformation Day - John 8:36 – “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” Today we celebrate Reformation Day! Luther is rightly remembered as a champion of the Gospel, but he also called himself “the apostle of good works.” For only in being set free by the Gospel can we do good works. Jesus has set us free, and His blood covers over our sins. We stand before God as His beloved children, and we are invited to live our lives to His glory for the good of His kingdom.

We are excited to officially begin this journey with a new Pastor and as a joint congregation with St. Paul’s, Thorp. Masks and Social Distancing are highly recommended. We will hold a light reception and a “Card Shower” to honor Pastor Dan and his family following the Service.
