Preach (worship)

Upcoming Sermon Themes:
A Prayer for Life
If we’re being honest, there are times when we’ve all taken prayer for granted. Or, we’ve felt guilt for forgetting to pray. God commands us to pray. But this command is not because God needs our prayers. After all, he’s God! He commands us to pray because we need our prayers. In prayer, we have an open line to our Savior and we pray with the confidence that he hears us. As we meditate on prayer in our worship for eight weeks, each week we will focus on a part of the most famous prayer of all time: The Lord’s Prayer. To lay out the theme for each service, we will use the words of Martin Luther’s Small Catechism.

Aug 18/19  "Give us this Day Our Daily Bread"  Psalm 145:8-9; 14-20
Aug 25/26  "Forgive us our Sins"  Gen 50:`15-21
Sept 1/2     "Lead us not into Temptation" 1 Cor 10:12-13
Sept 8/9     "Deliver us from Evil"  1 Peter 5:6-11
Sept 15/16  "The Thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory
                      Forever and ever.  Amen    Matt 7:7-11

Questions

How do I Become a Member at Deer Valley Lutheran Church?

Membership at DVLC is more than your name on a piece of paper. It is an adoption into a family of believers.

Those joining DVLC from other WELS churches will find our beliefs similar. Those coming from another church body or from no religious background at all engage in a Bible Information Class taught by the pastor.
 

What are the services like?

Service times are Saturdays at 6:00 pm & Sundays at 9:00 am. We are a Confessional Lutheran church which offers liturgical services.  Dress is casual like most Phoenix destinations; you're always welcome regardless of your wardrobe. A nursery is available in the church for those with young children.
 

What is DVLC all about?

  

We are here to share the Gospel message and teach others about Jesus.
