Come FISH with us on Wednesday Nights!
As Martin Luther often asked,” What does this mean?”
It means we are going to gather intergenerationally to share our faith together in Fellowship, Inspiration, Story, Hope.
Every Wednesday night beginning September 13th, everyone is invited to come to church
5:30-6:15 p.m. – feed our bodies with food at a free-will meal
6:15-7:00 p.m. – feed our spiritual selves as we FISH
During our fishing time, we gather in inter-generational groups to share our highs and lows.
Next we read a story or verse from scripture and engage in conversation about how our life events connect to this word of God using a variety of creative interactions.
Then we pray together for one another’s highs and lows at each table, and send EVERYONE off with a blessing as our evenings together comes to a close.
Our time to FISH together is a gift and a blessing to people of all ages and stages of life.
Please make plans to come and join together as the church to make a huge impact on each other’s lives!
Men’s Bible Study every Saturday, 7AM
Lord of Love’s men’s group and Bible study meets each Saturday in the Fellowship Hall at 7 a.m. Breakfast is followed by Christian study and fellowship until 8 a.m. Plenty of food and seating is always available. We invite all men to come join us for food fellowship.

Christian Preschool classes are held Monday through Friday during the school year.

Prayer allows us to have conversation with God and to feel God’s presence surround us.
Prayer gives us moments in our day to share with God our praise, our frustrations, and our concerns. Frequent prayer helps us to keep connected with God as the focus of our lives. The prayer chain at Lord of Love is a service to all of our members. Please contact Mary Lou (402-493-2946) with your prayer requests or to become a member of the prayer chain.
The Love Letter is available online!
Our monthly congregation newsletter, the Love Letter, is published at the beginning of each month. This newsletter enables you to stay informed on the ministries, programs, and activities of our congregation.
See the News and Events section of our site for each monthly issue.
Saved Through Faith
Martin Luther struggled with the church’s teaching that he earned his forgiveness of sin and justification before God through his works as a monk. Instead, he found a greater and deeper understanding that God’s grace is what justifies us. In celebration and response to the gift of grace, God invites us to live lives of love and perform acts of service.
