DR. MARTIN LUTHER’S
EXPLANATION TO THE SECOND ARTICLE
I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the virgin Mary, is my Lord.

He has redeemed me, a lost and condemned creature, purchased and won me from all sins, from death and from the power of the devil, not with gold or silver, but with his holy, precious blood and with his innocent suffering and death.

All this he did that I should be his own, and live under him in his kingdom, and serve him in everlasting righteousness, innocence and blessedness, just as he has risen from death and lives and rules eternally. This is most certainly true.

MRS. BETH SCHMELING is retiring at the close of the current school year. We will honor her service to Savior as our Pre-School teacher (2013-2018) at our St. Paul’s School Play on Monday, May 21, 7:00 p.m. A box for cards will be provided.

WARTBURG PROJECT UPDATE
The entire EHV Bible translation of Old & New Testament is now in the hands of Northwestern Publishing House. Pre-orders may perhaps be placed as early as this summer. Expected publication of the hard-cover edition of the entire Bible is expected in the summer of 2019. A study Bible edition and other related products are in preparation. Our congregation has received another anonymous donation toward furnishing our church, school and homes with the full EHV hardcover Bible when it becomes available. The total fund set aside now for this now exceeds $10,000.00
