. . . because we’re thirsty for the TRUTH! I believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God begotten not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made. Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and was made man and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried and the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures. And ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of the Father, and He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead whose kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, Who spoke by the prophets. And I believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come, and the life of the world to come. AMEN! (As sung by the children of our Credo Vacation Bible School 2015)

College Bound Are you College Bound? If so, then you already know about the challenges that lie ahead. What will you study? Where will you live? How will you pay for it? If you are a Christian, you will have additional challenges. Where will you go to Church? Will you go to Church? How will this experience affect your faith? College Bound is a 2.5 hour seminar to help prepare Christian students for life on campus. The seminar will be led by Pastor Ian Pacey of Memorial Lutheran Church, and held at Our Savior on August 9 at 1pm.

Thank You! We give thanks and praise to our Lord Jesus for the outpouring of Christian love during the time of our grieving, as demonstrated by the pastors, musicians, volunteers and many congregants by our respective congregations, Our Savior and Memorial Lutheran Churches. We thank you each and all. The Lamberson Family Dear Friends, Words cannot express our appreciation for the love and prayers from this congregation for Lois during her recent illness. Lois often said, “I feel your love and prayers.” We also want to thank Pastor White for his visits and the beautiful celebration of life service. God bless, The Jim Nitsch Family
