Our 40 day journey to our Savior’s cross begins on Wednesday, February 10. As we consider Jesus’ parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector we will be reminded why “This Man Went Home Justified.” We gather for worship at 3:30 and again at 7:00.

Who is Jesus? What is grace? Is Baptism important? Why do we eat bread and drink wine? How are we saved? Should I be afraid of Judgment Day? What is Judgment Day? Good questions! You probably have questions of your own. Join us Monday, February 1, at 6:30 as we turn to God’s Word to hear his answers.
