“You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy.” You will have sorrow because this is a fallen world. But your sorrow will turn into joy because Jesus has taken your sorrow into Himself on the cross and to the grave. But He is risen, victorious over sin, death and the devil, and yes even your sorrow.

When we are perplexed by the dissention in the world we Christians are comforted that our Lord Jesus has overcome the world.  In a world full of tribulation we find peace in knowing we are the Lord’s.


May 29, 2022 – Ascension of Our Lord Observed

Psalm 47; Acts 1:1-11; Luke 24:44-53 
“Ascended But Not Far” - Sermon TextLuke 24:44-53 - Rev. William Mueller 

The Ascension of Our Lord is, tragically, a long overlooked festival in the Church Year. Forty days after His resurrection, having accomplished all things for us and for our salvation, Jesus visibly ascended into heaven; His visible presence among us removed. Why? What are we supposed to do now? We’re still here…and Jesus calls us to be engaged in witness mission.
