This is why we gather
Church has been different this year. No doubt, you missed gathering together with our family of believers for regular worship. As churches are able to open their doors more and more, we hope to see more and more of our brothers and sisters in Christ each week. The “This is why we gather” series of short videos are available from WELS Congregational Services to share, encouraging God’s children to remember the importance of gathering for worship together. You can access, view, and share these videos at welscongregationalservices.net.
