You are invited to an opportunity to learn more about the history and theology behind one of the most significant writings in the Lutheran church, Luther’s Small Catechism.  Whether you are a life-long Lutheran or are with Holy Spirit Lutheran Church from a different faith tradition, join us on a journey through Martin Luther’s writings in the Small Catechism. Each part of Martin Luther’s work had a goal, and that was to allow God’s work in Jesus Christ to find a place deep in our hearts. Textbooks will be available for use of those attending, we only ask that you bring your curiosity and questions. Please RSVP with the church office or sign-up on the patio. We will meet in the Learning Center Room #203 on Wednesdays from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. This is a seven week series, feel free to attend any or all of the sessions you would like.

This is a new Life Group that will be offered on four Wednesdays, beginning August 21, at two times:

7 – 8 AM, for men only in the Church Office.

10 – 11 AM, for everyone, in room 203 in the Learning Center

We all have wants and life can feel like a constant pursuit of those wants.  If what we want leads to a cycle of wanting more and more then

maybe we want the wrong things.  You will never get what  you really want until you discover what you really value.

Come and join the conversation with Pastor Frank.  RSVP to the Church Office at 561-624-9663 or Diana Rodriguez at

Those who are battling cancer, survivors, spouses, friends and family are invited to share concerns and experiences. We will take a journey to discover ways in which the church, God’s promises and others with similar situations can ease our pain and fears. If you would like more information please contact Cindy Miller at 561-743-0588 or or come to our next meeting the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:00 PM in the Learning Center room 208.   Our July meeting on the 17th will continue the series What Cancer Can't Do and our topic is "Cancer Cannot Shatter Your Future Hope."

Ministry News

Village of Hope Haiti

The VoH School and Health Center are up and running again after a 2 week closure.  Our Field Directors, Rob and Trish Low, are back and schedules at both the school and health center are pretty much normal at this time.  All classes are completely full and the kids especially are glad to be back at their studies.  All services at the health center are available to patients and many people from the surrounding area have been coming for help.  Unfortunately, unrest can break out again at anytime.  Mission Team visits are cancelled for March.  The  VoH staff will continue to monitor the situation and determine when team activities will resume.   Please continue to pray for peace in Haiti!   Check the Village of Hope Facebook page often for current news. To learn more about our work at the Village of Hope Haiti, please click here.
