Kids are learning all about Luther's Small Catechism

Join us in getting back-to-the-basics with our lessons centered around Luther's Small Catechism this Sunday School year. the Catechism is a foundational tool for Lutherans to utilize for the learning and understanding of the Lord's Prayer, the Creed, the Ten Commandments, the Sacraments and more.

Classes are available for all ages.
Each week we look in-depth at a section of the Catechism, break it down so there is understanding of what is says; why it is in the Catechism and it's importance. It is a great way to know better that God loves you and has given you so very much.
Sunday school classes are at 10:00 AM with the studying of Luther's Small Catechism. See you there.





How do we move from Vison to Reality?

It is a question that many churches are asking in today's world. It is another we ask ourselve as Christians in our daily life. The question was answered in the form of Michael Keys from the synod. Pastor Keys serves at Bethany Lutheran in Portland and also works with congregations throughout the synod. He spoke and shared information about changes in the church and society, responses to change, long and short-term planning, and his role in the synod. Pastor Keys will be conducting a Congregational Vitality Survey, which is a tool for congregations to find underlying strengths, and issues within. Beyond the survey, there are one-on-one sessions for listening and listening sessions in small group format. He spoke to short-term planning with specific action items, areas of responsibility, and member groups reponsible for each action item. The survey will be available on April 12th  after worship as well as in the office to fill out. If you would like an electronic version sent to you, please contact the office. We will collect the surveys until April 26th. After, analysis of the survey an action plan will be put forth. Keep watching for developements and know In Christ YOU Matter...Every One of You...Every Voice...Every viewpoint--Every Listener!
