The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalm 28.7

God strengthens us in many ways in our life: through word and sacrament, prayer, and the fellowship of the faithful. In fact, God has given us each other that we might joyfully join together to worship and serve Him in the community of the church.
