“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”    Luke 19:38

1.  A Palm Sunday service and message from Pastor Ehlert is now available above.  This week (Holy Week) there will be online services for Maundy Thursday, our Good Friday 'Service of Darkness' and Easter Sunday. These will be available on this website and our church Facebook page.

2.  This evening (Palm Sunday), WELS President Mark Schroeder  will be delivering a brief message to the members of our synod in an online video broadcast. The message will be broadcast live at 6:00 p.m. (central). He invites you to access that message live online.  If you are not able to view the video when it is broadcast live, it will be archived online.

3.  We have received a brief email from former Beautiful Savior Pastor (and now President of Asia Lutheran Seminary in Hong Kong) Steve Witte.  They are doing as well as possible and he adds: "But its Holy Week.  Our thanks and praise to our God from our heart can’t be stopped by a virus, as you know."

Our prayer request today comes from our Prayer Ministry coordinators, Jane and Tom Wiltzius:  "Today, I'm asking us to pray for those mentally and physically challenged and their caregivers, families, and support systems. In this upside down world, their lives have been turned to unbelievable chaos in which many of them are incapable of understanding, which causes fear, anxiety and other emotions that cause them additional stress."

 Holy Spirit, be with their caregivers and families and give them the Fruits of the Spirit in dealing with these  precious ones of God.  May the loving arms of the heavenly Father comfort these precious ones and bring them his peace.  In Jesus name, Amen.

You will find a "button" at the bottom of this home page if you wish to make either a one-time donation, or if you wish to set up a recurring gift. If you have any questions with this new option, please contact us at our church office (499-7405) or email to:  Thank you.
