Crown of Life Lutheran Church has resumed its regular weekly services. Even though we are able to gather for public worship again, we realize that not everyone in our membership and community is comfortable returning to worship due to ongoing concerns about Coronavirus. In order to serve those who are not with us in person, Crown of Life has resumed its audio sermon podcast, and now provides on-demand video of our weekly sermons. These online resources, as well as other useful tools for worship and study at home, are included on this page.
Sermons Preached at Crown of Life
You can read Pastor Strey’s sermons by clicking the title above, or by selecting “Sermons” in the drop-down category menu on the right side bar. Please note that this will only list Pastor Strey’s sermons, but not the sermons from any guest preachers at Crown of Life.
Note from Pastor Strey: I am currently behind posting my sermons. WordPress has introduced a new format for producing and editing blog posts, and I haven’t had time to familiarize myself with this new system yet. However, the sermon podcast and YouTube channel linked below are up-to-date.

Resources from Other WELS Entities

Live-Streamed Sunday Morning Worship
If you are looking for a live-streamed service on Sunday morning, we recommend that you view the services from Grace Lutheran Church in downtown Milwaukee, streamed at 9:00 a.m. every Sunday morning. Grace streams its services on its YouTube channel and its Facebook page.
Why are we recommending that you follow the online services at Grace, and not another closer congregation? Like Crown of Life, Grace follows the lectionary (weekly schedule of Bible readings) that will be included in the forthcoming WELS hymnal (to be published in 2021), rather than the readings suggested in the current WELS hymnal (Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal, published in 1993). Those who view the services from Grace congregation will find themselves “on track” with the same Bible readings and other related worship content used at Crown of Life.
Online Sunday School
The YouTube channel for Northwestern Publishing House (NPH) provides online Sunday School videos each week for different age groups.
The WELS Commission on Discipleship now provides a set of three Family Devotions each week for use in the home. The three devotions are based on the three Bible readings appointed for each Sunday of the church year in the current WELS hymnal.
Devotional Reading and Resources
Northwestern Publishing House is a great source for Christian books, Bible study resources, and other church resources. Northwestern Publishing House is the official publisher of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
