What is Fortress?
Fortress is the church plant mission in the Killeen/Harker Heights community through a partnership with the congregation of St. Paul Lutheran in The Grove, Texas, and financially supported by Grace Lutheran and other congregations of Circuit 17. Shepherded by Pastor Gerry Harrow, Fortress seeks to provide a place of refuge in God's strength for people who are connected through fellowship, the study of Scriptural truths, encouragement in life, and eventually Christian worship.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I know this isn’t news to you but summer is over, fall is upon us and winter isn’t too far off! We’re entering a new season. At Fortress, we believe that we are also moving into a new season… from a season of preparing to a season of sharing. There has been so much effort and energy in preparing a place and it wouldn’t have been possible without countless work hours and prayers from many people. We appreciate it all so much but in this new season we are refocusing our energies into sharing God’s refuge with those around us!
A passage that the leadership has recently been discussing is Exodus 14:10, 13-16. The Israelites are being pursued by the Egyptians and Moses speaks to them saying “Be still.” God then has Moses tell them “Go forward.” Our prayer is that we can do both! Be still, hear and see God at work and then move forward as He opens the way!
Please pray for the following:
We, the people of Fortress continue to be humbled and amazed by your generosity, encouragement, and support. We cannot thank you enough for your financial and prayer support! It’s a blessing to be partners in ministry with you.
Joy and peace,
