Christmas Schedule 2018 ready, see Upcoming Events Secftion.
Our theme this year is entitled "What Child is this?"
We will highlight our lessons with messages that tell us about this little baby, Jesus Christ. Yes, He came as a child, but a child filled with hope and joy for a fallen world. He came as a child, a real human; yet He was also the Lord as well. It is a divine mystery, but what the True Church on earth has confessed for many years. Please join us every Sunday at 9:00 am as well (Bible Study does follow); or come to any or all of these special worship opportunities.
Midweek in Advent is Matins at noon, with Evening Prayers at night. On Christmas Day, we celebrate with the Eucharist in Divine Service.

So what is this Advent? Advent symbolizes the present situation of the church in these “last days” Acts 2:17, Hebrews 1:2, as God’s people wait for the return of Christ in glory to consummate his eternal kingdom. The church is in a similar situation to Israel at the end of the Old Testament: in exile, waiting and hoping in prayerful expectation for the coming of the Messiah. Israel looked back to God’s past gracious actions on their behalf in leading them out of Egypt in the Exodus, and on this basis they called for God once again to act for them. In the same way, the church, during Advent, looks back upon Christ’s coming in celebration while at the same time looking forward in eager anticipation to the coming of Christ’s kingdom when he returns for his people.
Need directions? We are a few blocks east of the intersection of Mannheim Road (RT. 45) and Roosevelt Road (US 38). Head north on Westchester Blvd. at the light, we are just a few feet past the viaduct.
Better yet, for the tech. people, see our web site, Google directions and map provided; or just plug above address in the GPS on your phone.
What is a "LCMS Lutheran"? The roots of the LCMS trace back to 1847, when German immigrants came to the United States and established a new church body (not a new church) in America, seeking the freedom to practice and follow confessional Lutheranism.
If you desire a clear witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the LCMS is your place; the Reformation celebrated about 500 years ago occurred for a reason. Christianity was being clouded and hampered by many false man-made claims. Yes, a bold claim; so stop by and discuss.
