Real Life…  DCE Annie Tiberg
July 25, 2017
I am going to take my own spin on our REAL LIFE series. To me REAL LIFE is equal to “a day in the life” of someone, which gives a feel for who they are and what they like. Many of you know me and the variety of ministries I lead and co-lead here at CGLCS. My days get filled with things I love and the REAL LIFE that goes with it. I wanted to give you a little snapshot into my REAL LIFE of serving Jesus and His people… Continue reading
Out of the Desert
July 18, 2017
Next Monday, my family and I will hop in the car to begin our journey out of the desert back to Concordia Seminary, St. Louis.  We will pack our gear, pile in, and trust God to provide and protect as we drive.  I feel like the Israelites we’ve been talking about on Sundays over the past several weeks as they walked with God in the desert!

“I’m Bored”
July 10, 2017
I’m bored. Have you heard this from your child or grandchild this summer, yet? If you haven’t heard this classic mid to late summer line, oh, you will. When the video games become super mindless, and the planned activities aren’t enough, you will hear from the couch, “I’m bored!” Continue reading
WE CARE MINISTRY…  A Story of Caring
July 3, 2017
We Care Ministry is a ministry of love and concern that was born almost 14 years ago at Christ’s Greenfield Lutheran Church and School. Out of love that our Lord has shown to us, We Care Ministry cherishes our times of caring for others because We Care. Continue reading
Make Disciples Who Make Disciples?
June 27, 2017
Discipleship. It is somewhat of a trendy buzzword in the Christian church today. The wider Christian church in America seems to ebb and flow between a heavy focus on “evangelism” and “discipleship.” It’s an interesting pendulum swing to observe. Today is the day of discipleship in the American church. My bookshelf is thick with discipleship books.   Continue reading
VBS 2017…  AMAZING!
June 20, 2017
Jesus has been on the move, friends! What a joy it was to be on our campus this week! Just a few days ago, nearly 650 children, teenagers and adults descended upon the Christ’s Greenfield campus for our annual Vacation Bible School. It was a marvelous week of learning all about how our amazing Maker created us, loves us, is for us, will never leave us, died and rose for us. What a friend we have in Jesus! Continue reading
His Name
June 13, 2017
His Name is the most influential name in all of history, but you hardly ever hear it mentioned in a public school. It’s not because using His Name would encourage unruly behavior in schoolchildren. No-- just the opposite-- His Name is often associated with the behavior of model citizens. But public schools prohibit His teachings, and so His Name is seldom heard in those classrooms.

REAL LIFE : BILL HARTLEY
June 6, 2017
All right, Vicar Matt … ya got me! I guess I’m “it”! REAL LIFE? That reminds me of that verse in 1 Timothy 6:19 where Paul refers to “the life that is truly life” – the one kept in heaven for us, and will be revealed when Christ returns (Col. 3:1-4). Now, that’s livin’! Continue reading
That Bird
May 30, 2017
Just a few weeks ago, my family and I joined our journey group to serve four families through the ministry of Family Promise (http://familypromiseaz.org/). Over a BBQ meal, we heard stories of painful transitions, broken relationships, and unsuccessful job searches. It was heartbreaking. Continue reading
The Centennial Bell
May 23, 2017
BY: Pastor Tim Ahlman, George Frauhiger, Pastor Kevin Wyssmann, and Duane Hustrulid The courtyard bell at CGLCS is 100 years old! I just found this out in the below article given to me by long-time member, George Frauhiger. The bell will continue to be a staple in our courtyard for years to come! What a joy to ring it 7 times each Sunday, signifying CGLCS as a place of rest. Continue reading
