Christian Life

The mission field of the church does not begin overseas or in a far off place but it begins in the Divine Service where Word and Sacrament are delivered to the people of God and so continues in the home as Fathers and Mothers teach their children the faith through reading the scriptures, prayer, and conversation. From there, the mission field moves to the communities we live in. When we make the mission field some far off thing, often the Divine Service is minimized and home is abandoned all together. For the benefit of the our members we have a list of resources that may help prepare your hearts and minds for what is given and received in the Divine Service as well as strengthen the spiritual life of the family in the home.
