The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
Sermon by Pastor Scott Grorud
Romans 9:1-12, 16-24, 30-33
“The Heart of Romans: Begging the Question”
1) What does the phrase “‘beg the question” actually mean? How is it often used instead?
2) How does Romans 9 respond to both the actual and common use of that phrase?
3) Why is it good news that no one can resist God’s will?
4) What preliminary answer does Paul give to the question that was “begged” at the beginning of Romans 9?

Dedication of Main Street Church
From the front page of the March 24, 1939 edition of the Hutchinson Leader.
“The new $25,000 Main Street Lutheran Church will be dedicated at services next Sunday afternoon (March 26, 1939), beginning at 2:30 p.m.
“The church presents an imposing sight in its Main Street setting. It is built of ornamental brick, with a high steeple and tower, and ornamental stone decorating the front. The main entrance is from the west, and there is also a side entrance from the south.
“The church proper is 40 feet wide by 90 feet long, with a ceiling of more than thirty feet … The main auditorium is finished in oak and presents a striking appearance. It seats about 350, while the balcony seats about 100 more. The large beams crisscrossing each other are of fir and add greatly to the inside appearance. The altar extends across the front of the church, with the choir loft, seating 32, to the left while the pulpit is on the right.
“Discussion of the new church was begun last summer, and the cornerstone was laid on October 16, 1938.”
Before there was a Park Elementary, on the same site, there was the Merrill School. The building was 63 years old in 1975. On Thursday, March 21, a massive fire broke out. That fire was the largest in Hutchinson’s history in terms of loss at $2 million. The fire began in an area used for elementary physical education. From there, it spread throughout the building. The east wing, which received the most damage, housed a number of elementary classrooms. Spring break was due to start the following Tuesday but it began early. By the time break was over, the school board had worked with a number of churches in the Hutchinson area, including Faith, to hold classes in their buildings.
This is just one way that Faith Lutheran Church has been actively involved in supporting the Hutchinson community.
Shirley Holtz began playing the organ at Faith in 1958. She retired after more than 50 years of service under 15 pastors.

St. Morten’s cemetery near Heatwole. In 1889 a small Danish Church was started and shared a pastor with Main St. Lutheran. The members who donated labor in building the church were given a free plot in the cemetery. In 1931 St. Morten’s merged with Main Street Lutheran and to this day FLC maintains the cemetery. You can find a map of the plots and more information in the gathering space outside of the office. If you would be available to mow or help maintain the grounds on occasion during the summer please contact the office.
From the past to the present.
Why do pews have a divider that is not in the middle?
When the church was completed in 1939 the pews that arrived were a bit too short.
This was resolved by adding the extension to each pew that you see today.
Go back to 1956 – do you recognize this past pastor or current member of FLC?
This would be Pastor N.B. Hanson and Muriel (Rasmussen) Dobratz.
