"...there is no quality in my heart at all,
call it either faith or charity;
but instead of these I set Christ Himself before me,
and I say, “There is my righteousness.”

EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
Welcome to Christ for Us!
(Website last updated on March 5, 2014)
It is appropriate that we observe The Baptism of our Lord right before the beginning of Lent. As our Lord Jesus faced the tempter after he was baptized, so we face temptation by the power of our baptism into Christ. Despised by many as a mere "outward sign of an inward experience," baptism is rather a washing by which our Savior saves us. You may read or listen to "Baptism Saves," based on 1 Peter 3:18-22 and preached on March 2 at the congregations of our parish.
We would like to invite you to midweek Lenten services.
Tuesdays at 7pm at Grace in Crookston and
Thursdays at 7pm at First American in Mayville.
Do Lutherans have bishops? If so, what is a bishop and what kind of authuority does he have? You may read, "Bishops: Who Needs Them?" on the power of bishops in the church according to the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions.
"What God Joins Together: Speaking the Truth in a World of Falsehood." This presentation is also available on the LCMS Iowa East District website. You may listen to it here.
We follow the historic one year lectionary at the congregations of our parish. The sermons are preached one Sunday, recorded for broadcast on the following Sunday, and put up on this website sometime in between.
