At Black Forest Lutheran Church, we are children in God’s hands. As fellow disciples of Christ, all Youth and Education events are our efforts to lead all to know and trust Jesus.

We welcome you to visit, bring a friend or neighbor, and see how God is at work in our Black Forest based faith family!

  • We are a people who connect, in joy and in challenge. 
  • We honor God, our families, our community, ourselves.
  • We care for our community by service to each other and especially those in need.
  • We connect often to learn about God!

June 2022 – Message from Jacob

For many, the month of May brings with it hopeful expectation. Things such as school coming to an end for the summer, maybe a vacation day or two to see God’s beautiful creation or to spend time with loved ones, and for us here at BFLC getting outside for our summer worship services. For me, I’ve always enjoyed watching the flowers begin to bloom. So much time, energy, effort, and care that finally pays off. The sweet fragrances fill the air, and the colors show off God’s beauty and creativity. As we walk through neighborhoods and parks these next months, maybe we take an extra minute to stop and smell the roses… why not? Just as these flowers have been planted and are being used to show God’s glory, so too are we. God has planted us where we are, for whatever reason. May this be the season that we grow where God has planted us, that we bloom and show His glory, and that our love for one another be like a sweet fragrance as well.

For His glory,
Jacob Oglesby
