Dear Members, Friends and Guests:

COVID-19 Guidance

This Weekend’s Message

This weekend, we celebrate Christian Education at Epiphany.  My sermon title is, “Why Baptize Babies”?  It wasn’t until after the Reformation in the 16th Century that infant baptism became a controversial topic among a few offshoots of the Reformation movement.  While 70% of the world’s Christians baptize infants, the question can easily arise in our minds, “Can infants believe?”  You bet!  And that makes Christian Education even more important in a Lutheran parish.
