Have you watched “13 Reasons Why” on Netflix or read the book? Teenagers are watching. “13 Reasons” highlights the very real impact of teen suicide. It hits hard on the importance of being present for and with each other. And while Jesus isn’t directly referenced, we’d be remiss as the church if we ignored the fact that teen suicide is on the rise. Praise God that in the darkness of such truth, we cling to the ultimate truth that God, through Jesus Christ on the cross and rising again, will always claim us and call us God’s own.

The Remodel Committee didn’t plan for the completion of the remodel project to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Yet, it’s happening that way.
The Remodel Project is ahead of schedule with construction starting mid-May. On Reformation Sunday we will dedicate the new copper art work representing Luther’s 95 Theses. The metal sculpture will be a focal point stretching to the ceiling in the Emmaus Room. We will have an Open House the first weekend in December to celebrate completion of the entire project.
In Psalm 66, David wrote these words of praise to God:
“Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
2 Sing the glory of his name;
make his praise glorious.
3 Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
So great is your power
that your enemies cringe before you.
4 All the earth bows down to you;
they sing praise to you,
they sing the praises of your name!”
