Life is stressful, isn’t it? Whether it’s stress at work, struggles at home, or a sudden tragedy that strikes, life can leave us feeling pretty unsettled at times.
That’s why I’m excited to be the pastor of Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Ahwatukee. “Lamb of God” is one of the titles the Bible gives to Jesus, which reminds us that Jesus has taken away the sins of the whole world by his death on the cross. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice, God loves you no matter who you are, forgives you no matter what you’ve done, and promises to uphold you no matter what may come your way. It is my distinct privilege to share that message of peace and hope in Jesus with the people of Ahwatukee.
We at Lamb of God are a group of ordinary people from different walks of life who rejoice in the peace Jesus has won for us. In each other, we have also found the joy of belonging to a Christian family, where we can encourage each other and find true purpose for our lives. Please know that there is a place for you here, no matter where you are at this point in your life. We look forward to meeting you and to the possibility of celebrating together the peace that comes from Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. You are always welcome!
