Join us this Pentecost as we take to heart our Lord’s Word, partake of His Supper, and receive Jesus Christ and Him crucified via the Spirit’s work. The Rev. James May, missionary with Lutherans in Africa, will be the guest preacher for our festive Divine Service and will also be updating us on his mission work on the African continent during Bible Class.
