Your weather just got better.

Welcome to pilotknob.org ...
Thanks for visiting. We’re excited about what pilotknob.org can offer to both members of Pilot Knob Lutheran and the surrounding community. There are many churches in the North Iowa area, each with its unique ability of serving in the Body of Christ. We pray you find the congregation God has chosen for you to serve.

We encourage you to not only take a look around, but also tell us about your visit: how you use the web site, and what you’d like to see added to pilotknob.org. We desire to be a resource for the Christian and non-Christian alike. Thank you, and may God enrich your day.

We hope you’ll visit us in person, too! We’re a short drive from numerous communities: Forest City, Fertile, Hanlontown and Joice, Iowa.

Join us for Sunday School: All Ages Welcome!

“Education: the process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself ... intellectually for mature life.”   —Dictionary.com

By the time you read this, thousands of students will be busy settling into a new school year, be it public, private, home school or college. Education is designed to equip people to reason, make sound judgments and become a mature adult. With that in mind I think we can all agree education is important whether it is formal education, on-the-job or everyday experiences. A day doesn’t go by that we don’t learn something.

Unfortunately not all we are taught or learn is true, helpful or correct. To be taught that something is true but it is not will impair one’s judgment and ability to reason with beneficial outcomes. For example: to be taught that a certain people group is evil and came from pigs and must be eliminated is to teach a lie and have profound consequences. Or to be told that man is on his own and either God doesn’t exist or can’t be relied upon will have negative results. Or to teach that the Bible is not accurate in all that it says and most of the reported historical events are really myth, allegory or spiritual principles—but not historical—will have very dangerous results. To be sure, for any education to be valuable and to deliver the knowledge to make sound decisions, judgments and become a mature adult, it must be grounded on truth.

Praise be to God our Father and his Son Jesus Christ for giving us his divine word and the Holy Spirit who leads us into truth.

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”
 —John 17:17
When he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.”
 —John 16:13a
All that the Bible says is truth from the very first word to the very last. It doesn’t matter if it is talking about spiritual matters, history, various fields of science or anything else, it is all true.

Unfortunately Satan is doing his best to convince people the Bible is untrustworthy and out-of-date, and man’s opinion and interpretation of what is discovered is far more accurate.

Beginning September 7, Sunday school or Christian education begins. It is designed to impart Biblical knowledge establishing a Biblical worldview so we can practice sound reasoning, judgment and live as mature adults. That’s why the Bible is the basis for Christian education; it’s true for all time and all generations. It addresses every area of life in the 21st century and beyond.

Our adult Sunday school class will be led by Lydia Gray. The lesson is entitled, “Growing in Christ.” You are encouraged to attend and further your education and or share you experience with others.

Confirmation will be taught by Nick Smith and the younger grades by Janelle Davis. I am very pleased with the teachers we have and all the students that make it possible to have a Sunday Christian Education Program. Of course we need you, for without you we have no Christian Education.

Are you ready to join the class taught by the Good Teacher?

 —Pastor Bob
