A Historic Event

By Pastor Art Spomer

What a joy!  A historic event.  The outcome of thousands of prayers, outrageously generous financial contributions, and countless volunteer hours!

Last Saturday was the first service at the new Ablaze Church location, 4901 South 177

th (51st

and Lynn Lane).  Eager worshipers filled the place with joyful song as the band enthusiastically led the sounds of praise to our amazing God.  Pastor Dreier, who has nurtured God’s vision of this in his heart for now 12 years, spoke on Pentecost (this event was on the eve of Pentecost) and the awesome work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers. 

The state of the art technology, the creative lighting, and the attractive worship space, however wonderful those are, were no match for the gracious presence of God, who delights to meet His people in Word and Sacrament.  Right along with Ablaze’s 2017 theme, it was “Still All About Jesus.”

Ablaze has a commitment to love each other as Christ has loved us, and to keep Him at the center of all we proclaim and do… Lighting the Way.
