Bringing Jesus to found and lost souls in the Quad Cities.
RECEIVING THE LORD'S GIFTS ON THE LORD'S DAY
Every Sunday we gather to receive Jesus' forgiveness through hearing the preaching of Christ crucified, remembering our Holy Baptisms, and for those of our communion, receiving the Lord's Supper. This is the Divine Service because we are guests in God's house and He serves us with forgiveness through His Son; we respond as living sacrifices, offering our thanks and praise on Sunday and throughout the week.
SUNDAY SERVICE AT 8 AM
For many years we gathered for service at 9 am. But starting in April 2018 our service time moved to 8 am. This shift happened to allow our Pastor to temporarily serve our sister congregation in Moline. Saint Paul's Lutheran Churchcelebrates service at 10:30 am. All are most welcome at either service!
Gethsemane was the garden where Jesus Christ prayed during His years of service on earth and also notably where He prayed just before He was betrayed by Judas and deserted by His other disciples. We remember Jesus' prayers and promises for us that He prayed for us and use the name of His place of prayer for our place of prayer (Matthew 26).
