Support Displaced Ukrainians

Gifts to the LCMS, including Mission Central, are restricted to providing aid and assistance to persons displaced by the war in Ukraine. The LCMS will issue grants to/through our Lutheran partners in the region best positioned to provide compassionate care in Christ’s name to those fleeing the conflict. The situation is developing, and the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod pledges to use every gift wisely to accomplish the greatest good possible in ways that deliver the Gospel as human needs are met.

Pastor Toensing

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: Thankfulness, studies show, has multiple physical, mental and emotional benefits. Psychologist Robert Emmons calls gratitude “fertilizer for the mind” because of its powerful effects. He admits gratitude isn’t always easy — especially when life throws us curveballs — but says it can be most helpful during and after difficulties. Emmons suggests reframing challenges using thankfulness-based language. Ask, for example: "Though I wasn’t grateful for the experience at the time, how can I be now? What lessons did I learn, and how did I grow as a person?"

Throughout his letters, the apostle Paul reframes his extensive sufferings and urges us to do the same. “Give thanks in all circumstances,” he writes, “for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV).

Advent & Christmas Worship

Everyone needs godly wisdom when it comes to family relationships. That’s why, as we begin a new church year, we plan to learn from the families connected with our Lord’s birth. This includes Joseph, Mary, and Jesus, along with Zechariah, Elizabeth, and John. These families faced infertility, frustration, loss, misunderstandings, death, and so much more.

  • Advent 1 – Two Families (Luke 1:5–25) Nov. 30, 10:30a & 6:30p
  • Advent 2 – Our Way (Luke 1:57–66) Dec 7, 10:30a & 6:30p
  • Advent 3 – A List! (Matthew 1:1–17) Dec 14, 10:30a & 6:30p
  • Advent 4 – Open the Door (Matthew 1:18–20) Dec 21, 10:30a & 6:30p
  • Christmas Eve – Whoever Takes the Son Gets It All (Matthew 1:21–25) – 6:30p
  • Christmas Day – 9:00 a.m.

You are encouraged to be a part of these worship services. Your family is worth time and investment in God’s word!
