More than a quarter of a century has passed since Luther’s Small Catechism was updated. During that time, society and culture have changed dramatically: our culture is increasingly diverse in worldviews and religions. Specific changes contradict Christian beliefs and values: same-sex marriage, over-the-counter birth control pills, and atheist hostility toward Christian beliefs and values--leaving many to doubt if there is such a thing as absolute truth. With these new questions and topics facing new generations, the Synod decided that the Explanation of Luther's Small Catechism needed to address these issues for the sake of young and old. The 2017 Explanation presents a lens to faithfully understand God's Word in the midst of changing times--providing a practical guide for living the daily Christian life. We have copies of the 2017 Edition for sale on the resource table in the narthex for $13.00.

 

Studio 1 Community Access TV has a new playback schedule for 2018! Air times for our weekly GSLC worship services are now on Wednesdays at 11:30am and Thursdays at 6:30pm.

 

The new GSLC Library is taking donations for LCMS based, up-to-date books for young adults through senior citizens (no children’s books please).  If you have items you would like to donate, please contact a member of the Board of Christian Education. 

 

Pastor Stefanic will be making every member home visits throughout the coming year. Please contact him for a day and time that works for you.
