Pastor's Corner

The Fall Season is fully upon us again, it means Friday Night Lights of High school football games, band half time shows, leaves changing their colors, and with the pumpkin decorations on full display in all of the local stores, I know it is about time to start preparing for the 501st anniversary of the Reformation.

A year ago, our congregation was a lot different. From March of 2018, with the Laborers’ of Christ working alongside us, our new Family Life Center is in the finishing stages of being built. I am sure that last October, the campus looked a little different. But the same message will be taught and shared with the community, Sola Scriptura, (Scripture Alone), Sola Gratia, (Grace Alone), Sola Fide, (Faith Alone), Solus Christus, (Christ Alone), and Soli Deo Gloria (God’s glory Alone). These Sola statements have been taught, preached and shared with the world for the past 501 years, ever since Martin Luther hammered those 95 theses onto the church door of Wittenberg, Germany.

I have heard and seen pictures of past German Dinners and potlucks held here on our own campus. I am looking forward to many years of enjoying those again. Sunday School classrooms meeting and praying together in our new building. Sometimes when something good is almost here, it is difficult to remain patient. Whenever my family were on car trip to far off destination, we would inevitably complain and ask, “Are we there yet?” My dad or mom would remind us that we will get there sooner than later. It might begin to feel like those long “just 15 more minutes” we might have heard growing up when were on car trips.

I want to remind you that we will be in our new Family Life Center sooner than later, and we have many hard-working people that helped us get there when we finally do arrive in our rebuilt campus. Just imagine how nice it will be to celebrate 502 years since the reformation next year after we have broken in the kitchen, so it begins to work just like we like it.
