In January, we hosted our Proclamation in the Prairie event — an annual two-day conference featuring fellowship, worship, brunch, and of course, teaching sessions. 

We are grateful to have had this opportunity to worship together and to teach about Luther’s evangelical breakthrough of the righteousness of God.

We were blessed to be sponsored by the following congregations this year: 

  • West Nidaros Lutheran
  • East Nidaros & Baltic Lutheran
  • Benton & Willow Creek Lutheran
  • Renner Lutheran and Zion Lutheran

Our humble thanks to these ministry partners for their continued support.

If you didn’t have a chance to attend in-person or via livestream this year, we have compiled the session recordings below for you to watch at your convenience. We hope you will be able to join us in 2024! 

As always, you can follow along with us on Facebook for all the latest updates on our resources and events. We look forward to connecting with you!


“While on the road to Damascus, the Apostle Paul was stopped in his tracks by Jesus Christ. His encounter with Christ made Paul realize that God doesn’t play by the rules and treats people in an unfair manner. Later, he would write in his letter to the Romans that the whole of the Old Testament shows God to be this way. We see it especially in God’s promise made to Abraham. Paul said it succinctly in Romans 3:21 “But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it.” It’s fair to say that the impact of this truth on Martin Luther was revolutionary. In fact, God’s righteousness apart from the law launched the Reformation.”
