Oktoberfest 2019a.jpg

The tradition of an Oktoberfest Dinner is approaching once again.  The Endowment Committee will put on a great Oktoberfest Dinner on Saturday October 26th  in the LOG Fellowship Hall and outside patio from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.  The menu – Brats, German Potato Salad, Sauerkraut, Cake, and of course what would be an Oktoberfest Celebration without beer, wine, and soft drinks.  Once again, the musical entertainment will be our own Director of Music, Todd Martin and his band playing all the good  ol’ Oktoberfest music out on the patio.  Tickets will be $25.00 each and where can you find such a bargain – great German food, drinks, and live entertainment for that price.  The Endowment Committee members will be selling tickets every Sunday from Sept. 22 thru Oct. 20th.

Sermon Series - Both/And

Starting in September, a six-part sermon series by Pastor Lars on the topic of being both/and in faith.

Both And 1.jpg

In a world that is always trying to make us pick between artificial absolutes, the truth is often found in the tension of two ideas that work together, or in paradox, or that work in some mysterious way at the same time.

If you’ve been burned by a Christianity that is overly simplistic, or legalistic, or rigid, check out this series, and Lord of Grace.

Our topics include:

Forgiveness and Consequences

Caring with Boundaries

Evangelism and Justice

Rooted and Free

Compassion and Rightness

Taking Faith Seriously, without being serious

Sermons will be the same at both the 8:30am and 10:30am services.

October 27 - Combined Service and Congregational Meeting

October 27th is Reformation Day. To celebrate the occasion we’re going to have one, combined worship service at 9am with special brass musicians.

Right after, at about 10am, is a special congregational meeting for our members to discuss the proposed capital campaign to do building upgrades and repairs (roof, painting, flooring and more).
