From the Pastor
That's in the Word
God's Word has tied our restless desire to know down to the revelation of himself in Christ, the crucified Lord.  This is what it means to take captive human reason to the Word of God: to know only the God who is revealed in his Word and to refuse to know God apart from his Word.  What we can know about God can be seen in the face of Christ, who looking upon Jerusalem weeps genuine tears of grief, lamenting the unbelief of the people for whom he would die, people like us.  Let us know nothing else this Sunday when we hear this in the Gospel lesson. Jesus wants to gather you together as his chicks, and that's in the Word.

Every One His Witness
9:45 AM- 10:45 AM 
Fellowship Hall
Pastor Murray is leading Sunday morning Bible class through the new LCMS evangelism education program. This program called "Every One His Witness" prepares you to share the faith of Jesus Christ with the people around you. The program is designed to equip us Christians to share the gospel in their everyday lives with the people whom God has placed into relationships with them. We will address the reasons why we witness through a theological foundation for witnessing and explore how to witness by introducing the LASSIE approach for witnessing.
If you have suggestions about things that you'd like to see in the Memorial Messenger, please let the office staff know. We would love to hear from you.
