Making A Difference in the Desert


We are a church who, by the grace of God, “prepares,” “declares,” “shares” and cares”.
I submit that we do these things because we are a group who “dares”!
In II Corinthians 11:21, 30, St. Paul writes that he “dares to boast,” but then qualifies this:
“If I must boast, I will boast of the things that show my weakness,” (v.30).
God is his strength and, in I Corinthians 1:31, he writes that he will “boast in the Lord.”
What about our boasting… and our daring?
We boast of the power and mercy, the love and care of Jesus Christ.
We boast that He has made us who and what we are.
The activities and ministries that are on these web pages reflect the great things God does in and through us.
With changes and new directions within our church family, God has been the steady, constant “strength”
for us through His abiding presence and the Means of Grace.
 We study and grow in the Word, and we celebrate the Sacraments — we are a blessed people!
 In His Name, we dare to try new ministries, new approaches and new possibilities as we
love and serve Him and the fellow person.
 The Greek word for dare means to be brave and have courage.  In Jesus Christ, and by His Spirit,
we are strong and confident, with courage to do what God calls us to do.
May Risen Savior be a church that “dares” to be “different” for the sake of the Lord Jesus.
