Resources for Family Prayer

Due to the snow many will not be able to safely attend the Divine Service that will be taking place at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. To provide the blessing of the Word of God to these families provided here is an Order for Family Prayer and a Sermon by the Blessed Martin Luther that can be read during the Family Prayer. We will all be united in the communion of saints through the Holy Word of God and by prayer. The readings, prayers, and sermon are for Septuagesima Sunday.

“A voice was heard in Ramah, weeping and loud lamentation, Rachel weeping for her children; she refused to be comforted, because they are no more.”

The icon, a copy of a 14th century fresco, depicts St. Rachel weeping over the killing the Holy Innocents after the Nativity of our Lord.

Singing from our VBS

During our Vacation Bible School we learned the sainted Paul Gerhardt’s hymn “All Christians Who Have Been Baptized,” LSB 596. We learned a new stanza each day. This was recorded on Thursday. Even some of the preschoolers knew the first few stanzas by the end of the week. The Pastor begs you to ignore his singing in the background. Enjoy this beautiful hymn.

In Memoriam – Page Harding Reeder

Version 2


Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Let us remember with thanksgiving what God has done through His servant Page.

Page Harding Reeder, son of Page Reeder and Effie Morsythe, was born in the City of Baltimore on August 17, A. D. 1943. He was baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit on October 24, A. D. 1943 by the Reverend W. G. Polack at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Irvington. He confessed his baptismal faith in the in the Rite of Confirmation on March 25, A. D. 1956 under the Reverend R. L. Landeck and was admitted to the altar to receive the medicine of immortality, Christ’s life giving body and blood. On July 14, A. D. 2015, Page, at the age of 71 years, fell asleep in Jesus. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord.

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord. We give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ, our Lord, for our brother Page.

A Committal will be held at Crestlawn Cemetery on Tuesday, July 21, A. D. 2015 at 1:00.
