A Word From The Pastor
Dr. Dan Schroeder
Dear Friends: Thank you for visiting our congregation's website. It is our hope that through this small place on the internet, you will become better acquainted with our congregation and our ministry. Our congregation is affiliated with the American Association of Lutheran Congregations, in full pulpit and altar/communion fellowship with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. For your information, we have outlined in specific detail exactly what our congregation believes, teaches, and confesses in our "formal statement of faith"--just click on the link. Even though we have attempted to cover everything, there still may be areas where you might have specific questions that we did not address. Therefore, we invite you to Email, write, or telephone us with any further questions you might have. We will answer them in a timely manner, and might even include the topic in our "Frequently Asked Questions" area (without giving your name, of course). We need your input so we can improve and refine our website to make it the best it can be. As our congregation continues to grow and reach out to the community, we are reminded that the church doesn't belong to the pastor or any of the members. Rather, it is Christ's Church, bought with His blood, and for which He died. We are gathered together as a group of Christians, redeemed sinners who have been washed in the blood of the Lamb, to give a living witness to Christ, and to live lives dedicated to His glory.
I also want to call attention to our latest addition. In December 2011, we began televising our regular Sunday services on Time-Warner Cable channel 13. If you live in the Lincoln Metro area (including Seward and Crete), and you have access to Time-Warner Cable, then you can tune us in and see for yourself what we do every Sunday--and you can do it right from your easy chair! Our services are broadcast two times every week: Sunday afternoons at 4 pm, and Wednesday evenings at 9 pm.
We also realized very quickly that not everybody who wants to watch our service can receive Channel 13, or perhaps our TV broadcast times don't coincide with everybody's schedule. To rectify this problem, we also broadcast and podcast our services on this website (click here to go directly to the menu). With this capability, you can watch the exact same video of our entire service that we broadcast on TV, right on your computer, anywhere you can get to an Internet connection, and whenever it suits you. You may also download the service for later viewing on your I-pod or other device.Even with all the electronic media available, we cordially invite you to come and experience our congregation first-hand. And as you peruse our website, may you be edified and strengthened in your faith. We look forward to hearing from you, and we hope to see you in person soon for Worship, Bible Study, or fellowship. We trust that we can be the church home you've been looking for! Wishing you peace in the Name of Jesus, Pastor Dan Schroeder
