AND Sunday, June 2, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ It is possible to hear in Jesus’ high priestly prayer, a prayer he offered shortly before his death, the petitions of the ascended Lord for his own throughout history—to our day—and beyond.  Jesus prays for us.  In holy baptism we become believers in God, have our robes washed in the flood of Christ’s forgiveness, and receive the gift of life forever with all the saints.

Sunday, June 23, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.)

Second Sunday of Pentecost ~ This Sunday’s texts paint startling pictures of the horrific—the demonic—nature of sin.  The church’s repeated celebration of the holy communion counters that tragic reality in a continued showing forth of the death of Jesus “until he comes.”  It is a dramatic declaration of “how much God has done for you.”

AND Sunday, June 30, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.)


Third Sunday of Pentecost ~ We have no good apart from God.  That makes our Lord’s call to follow him an invitation to freedom.  This is freedom to revel in the Spirit’s fruits: love, joy, peace, patience, and the like.  This is the path of life.




​​ New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church wishes you a blessed day

and we pray that Christ's message of eternal life fills you with hope and love!
