Welcome to the Lutheran Church of the Master
We are a small church that believes God loves this city.
We are energized by the many community partnerships that have popped up on Main Street. It is fun to see people employing their passion and wisdom for the benefit of our community. Many people come through the doors of our building in a given week for choir practice, addiction support groups, quilting ministry, acting lessons, music recitals, school assemblies and other community events. We see these activities as gifts of God and we celebrate the way that they enrich the lives of many.
The central ministry of Lutheran Church of the Master is to gather around the Word of God on Sunday morning. We meet together to receive the promises of forgiveness and renewal, we hear ancient scriptures brought to life, we commit our lives to serving others and we partake in a communion with God and neighbor as we gather at Christ's table. All of this in one hour! and it's open for all.
Peruse our website, check out our zoom broadcast (it's not fancy), attend a service, send an email. We pray that you are encouraged as you consider the awe and mystery of a God that loves you.

Fall BBQ Luncheon
The Fall BBQ turned out great. The dessert auction was a huge hit, and we raised over $1,100 which more than doubled our goal. Everyone was very generous, thank you! The proceeds are going to the food bank program at Famly LIfe Church.
Cofirmation Sunday is Oct. 22, 2023. Continue to pray for Austen, Adam and Jesse.

Prayer for Airdrie - Walk, Ride, Drive and cover our city with prayer. Our goal is to pray for every street in Airdrie over 50 days. Pick an area of town and cover it with prayer. Highlight the section on the map in the foyer when you are done. Ask God to teach us about our city as we pay attention to it.
Check out our NEW "Community Links & Events Blog". "Community Links" is a series of workshops available for children and adults on topics such as mental health, and parenting in general over the next several months. "Community Events" are a direct link to events happening inn our community.
This is a prayer that Pastor Tim shared with us I thought is worth noting. It makes us refect on our own lives on what is really important, and what we have the power to change in order to know Christ better.
"Lord do not let us do more if in doing less we might do it better. Do not let us acquire more if in living with less we might know you better. Forgive us for equating quantity with quality, wealth with security and applause with popularity. Teach us to amend our ways, lest we miss the baby in the manger, the lad in the carpenters shop, the teacher on the hill side and the Christ on the cross."
