Where God is Allowed His Spirit Works Among His People


The Church Matters – Solutions website was created to:

demonstrate that indeed church does matter and orthodox Lutheran solutions matter too.

show how the Lutheran churches are nurtured through sound Biblical and Confessional teaching.

impress upon the importance of Lutheran History, including the Reformation, plus why Adiaphora and worship practices matter.

Our Objective is to support quality orthodox Lutheran education resources for the laity of Lutheran congregations.

In our humble effort to support quality Orthodox Lutheran education resources, we focus on providing presentations, Bible Studies, books and booklets that can be obtained either by purchase or free download.  Some printable items have quite a bit of detail and are thus lengthy. Others have a lot of graphics and there titles are only posted on the site and are available via an email order form.  Click here for a flyer that summaries the major contents of the site.

As of April 1, 2019 all products on this website are available for free download, with some exceptions having larger file sizes. These exceptions must be ordered from CMS by providing a list of titles you wish to receive in a CD and a check made out to Gene White mailed to 17572 NW Shady Fir Loop, Beaverton, OR 97006, or use the PayPal button below. Follow the same process if you want to order a large number of free titles, or you may also include in any CD order any free titles. This offer applies to all titles on any page of this website.

How This Website Came About

Hi, I’m Gene White, creator of this website. How this site came about is a very interesting path all about how our gracious heavenly Father leads us through life doing His will. Most of the time we don’t even know it. To read the story of the directions God has lead my life since retirement in 1997,  click here. Then you’ll see just why Church Matters, matters to me.GeneThumbnail

Important notice to my friends and supporters. This site needs two things in order for it to carry on into the future; additional contributors, and someone to manage the site. Neither of these two things have happened so it is time to make a change. Now that all titles are basically free and I will not be making any new projects to add titles the site will be basically dormant. The end time for the site licensing is next Feb and when that time comes the site will go silent and cease to exist.  It has been an interesting and challenging period creating and  maintaining this site and making my feeble attempts to provide solid educational materials for Lutheran laity. Thank the good Lord for that opportunity to serve where He has placed me. Gene
