Worship this Sunday 5/31, 9am (Sunday School on Summer Break)
- Limited In-Person by RSVP: We are thankful to begin slowly re-opening in-person worship with extra precautions. These precautions include socially-distanced seating, which presently limits participation to twenty (20) households by reservation only. To review our community guidelines and make your reservation for in-person worship, please click here!
- Facebook Live Streaming and Recording: we also continue to offer a livestream of the service and a glitch-free recording that posts immediately after the stream ends on our Facebook page. Click here for this week’s online worship folder and the link to our Facebook page!
We look forward to joining you in common worship, whether in-person or online! Please also know that your pastors and other leaders are continuing to develop still more creative ways to safely foster worship and connecting as the Body of Christ. We also encourage you to continue being safely creative in connecting to each other and serving your neighbors!

Update: Presidential Call, Concordia Seminary – St Louis
A call was extended to the Rev. Dr. Lawrence Rast, currently president of Concordia Theological Seminary – Ft. Wayne. Dr. Rast, however, has declined the call out of a conviction he is still called to serve at CTSFW. Please continue to pray for the Seminary and its call committee as the search begins again.
