Seminarian Visit
Sunday, July 2nd

Hello! My name is Dan Gutman and I'm a student at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, currently finishing my last semester before internship. I commute there from Sidney, OH where I live with my spouse Mandy and our 2-year-old son, Sam (and another son due in May!). I enjoy playing with Sam's toys, singing, being outside, and family style dinners with lots of people.

The three (soon to be four) of us would like to convey our deepest gratitude for your support, encouragement, and prayers. I look forward to meeting you all face to face on July 2nd.

A poem for the 26th week of 2017

Just One Word

Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4

Just one word,
   a silent word,
     a word from God.
In silent meditation
   God’s voice speaks,
      says to me pay attention,
      look, listen.

I open myself in quiet devotion,
   ready to receive what God gives me.

All I need,
   just one word.
Jesus, the Word.

It doesn't happen often that inclement weather causes us to cancel Sunday worship, but it is wise for us to be prepared just in case. In the event the weather is frightful on a Sunday morning please check this website for the status of Sunday morning events. Status will be posted on the site by 8:00 am. Also, cancellations will be broadcast on 102.7 FM WCPZ and 96.1.

If there is a level 2 or 3 snow emergency for Erie County, all worship services and weekday church events will be cancelled. If you get the word about a worship cancellation, please help us pass the word by calling friends and relatives. The last thing we want is someone needlessly braving dangerous roads and then arriving to an icy parking lot and an empty sanctuary.
