Church Time & Location
We meet Sunday mornings at 9:00am for Divine Service and Bible Study at Germanna Community College. From I-95 exit 126/126B take 17 south. After 17 turns east and crosses over I-95, take a left at the traffic light on to Germanna Point Drive. Proceed all the way down that street to the end. We meet in the Workforce Development and Technology Building on the northeast side of the campus--usually in room 105-A.
The street name has been undergoing change. It has been labeled both Germanna Point Drive and simply Germanna Drive.
The adult topic will vary from week to week and can be topical or a verse-by-verse or chapter-by-chapter study of a book from the Bible. We are currently surveying the History of the Christian Church which is bringing up a wide variety of contemporary issues and their biblical sources. We always address any timely questions from the congregation too--making application of God's Word to daily life. Please join us and bring along a Bible if you have one. We publish the overhead PowerPoint notes weekly so participants can look up and read more in depth during the week if they choose. We look forward to seeing you there!
The children continue to learn traditional Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments using the very Lutheran curriculum Christ-Light from NPH, as well as memorization of Luther's Small Catechism and hymns out of the Lutheran Service Book (hymnal) that will last them a lifetime. The content is not dumbed-down but challenges the children to know their Bibles and the one true God who created them and saved them.
Pastor James R Shaw serves as the pastor as the congregation grows in the one true Christian faith. He has completed an intensive 4-year Masters of Divinity program through Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, IN. He also currently serves as Vice President of Administration CIO/CTO of Walther Theological Seminary in Decatur, IL where he also teaches online seminary classes on church history and Lutheran theology.
The congregation is composed of families with small children and empty-nesters. The church size is small enough that you won't get lost and personal attention can be given to each member and family. It is also home-school, public school, and private school friendly. God is blessing the humble efforts of a small group of dedicated individuals. Come visit. Come see for yourself what God the Holy Spirit is doing at this faithful church in the Fredericksburg/ Spotsylvania area.
