WELCOME! This week we observe Reformation Day. And a very special Reformation Day, too, for it is the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. How very blessed we are as to have the great legacy of Martin Luther and the other reformers who struggled mightily to return the Church of Christ to His Gospel and His Holy Scriptures. We say Scripture Alone, Grace Alone, and Faith Alone. These three have a content. That content is Christ Jesus our Lord. His forgiveness, His life eternal now given to us, His Sacraments giving that life and salvation. Today we take up one of Martin Luther’s favorite psalms as our Reformation Day subject, Psalm 46. It’s not very long, only eleven verses. Yet, what power and glory to God in that mighty Word. Confidence: "God is our refuge and strength.. A very
present help in trouble." Confession: "There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved." Trust: "Be still and know that I am God." Believe it! Happy Reformation Day!
Soli Deo Gloria

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod celebrates its birthday on April 26. Initial members, which included 12 pastors representing 14 congregations from Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Michigan, New York and Ohio, signed the church body’s constitution on April 26, 1847, at First Saint Paul Lutheran Church in Chicago, Ill.
Originally named The German Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Missouri, Ohio and Other States, the name was shortened to The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in 1947 on the occasion of our 100th anniversary.
The roots of the LCMS run deep, tracing back to Saxon and other German immigrants establishing a new church body in America, seeking the freedom to practice and follow confessional Lutheranism.

Congratulations to Anna & Colby
When you were little children, you were received into God's covenant of grace in Holy Baptism. And now, having learned the meaning of this covenant from your instruction in the Word of God, you gathered before God and the congregation publicly to make profession of your faith in the Triune God and to confirm your covenant with Him.
