"The Pearl of Great Price"

Anniversary Sunday for ELC - 96 years. There is no greater joy than baptism. We are not products of chance. God is the reason for life. God's presence in marriage. Warning that 3 sundays missed church attendance may be spiritual suicide. Self gratification is NOT love. Communion is not for angels. We don't want our departed ones back - heavenly homesickness.
