We are a community of Lutheran Christians who are part of God's family in the city of Reed City. We see ourselves as people of God who gather for worship, for service, for study, and for fellowship in order to carry the Good News of our Lord Jesus into our community and the world. The 'blueprint' for our ministry is God's Word - the Bible.
Our congregation is part of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, a national organization of 6,000+ Lutheran Churches - and it actively supports the missions and charities at home and abroad.
The focal point of our week is the time that we spend together in worship, praising God, giving Him thanks and receiving His strength and guidance for our lives. It is a time to share common needs, concerns, and joy in prayer.
It is our sincere hope and prayer that your introduction to our family will be a happy one and that we, through Christ, will be a blessing to you.
TEACHING + LIVING + CARING + SERVING as the Family of Christ
TEACHING GOD’S WORD IN CHURCH AND SCHOOL
We will teach all people about God. We will teach them that He is a loving God who forgives us our sins, no matter what they are, providing we can see the error of our ways and ask Him to forgive us. We will teach them the Gospel, the Ten Commandments that God gave to Moses, the Holy Sacraments, the Doctrine of the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod, and the Christian way of life.
LIVING THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
As children of God, we will show this to others by the manner in which we live; to live in God’s image and to know Him as our Savior. This will be passed on to our children and to others so that they may come to know the true God.
CARING FOR THE EARTHLY AND SPIRITUAL NEEDS OF ALL PEOPLE
Because of Christ's example to us, we will show others that we care for each and every one of them. We will do this by reaching out and sharing God's Word and His bountiful blessings with the world wide community through evangelism and missions.
SERVING OUR LORD IN OUR COMMUNITY AND WORLD
We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ. We will serve others in our community, state, and world through volunteering, advocating, and providing assistance to those in need.
AS THE FAMILY OF CHRIST
We are the "Family of Christ" because He chose us to be His followers, His chosen people. He did not leave anyone out of His master plan. We make that choice for ourselves. Anyone and everyone can and should belong to the 'Family of Christ", so that we may have eternal life with Him in Heaven.
our mission and vision
THE LUTHERAN CHURCH - MISSOURI SYNOD
With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and co-eternal, one God.
