PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:
This coming Sunday (May 31st) is Holy Trinity Sunday. The season of Easter is over and so is the Day of Pentecost. We are now moving into the season of Pentecost. Our worship services on the 31st of May are at 10:30 (led by our pipe organ) and noon (led by guitars and mandolin). The gospel text for next Sunday is John 3:1-17 and Pastor Hout’s sermon title is “Some Familiar Words.” You can read this text and the entire Bible online at
Memorial Day Parade Was the 25th and it was very very special this year as it featured our very own Dale Schram as Grand Marshal!!! Congratulations, Dale!
Thanks for stopping by!!! We hope you enjoy your time on our humble website. We may not be as big and fancy as some places but we have important people here......people like you! We hope your journey with the Lord is going well and please, stop by to visit us again. We try to update this site on a regular basis, even weekly.
Prayers of the Church We pray for Carl Schroeder who was in the hospital after back surgery. We continue to celebrate with Salem Lutheran at Ellerton as they just had their 200th anniversary. Others in our prayers include Michael Allikas, Saron McLaughlin, Iris Englebrecht, Don Stupp and Bob Greenlee. We also prayer for our military men Zach Mathis, Blake Parrett and Rob Greenlee and Taylor Macy in Senegal with the Peace Corps.
Here is the Prayer of the Day for Holy Trinity Sunday: Almighty Creator and ever-living God: we worship your glory, eternal Three-in-One, and we praise your power, majestic One-in-Three. Keep us steadfast in this faith, defened us in all adversity, and bring us at last into your presence, where you live in endless joy and love, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Spring Fling Parade went well and we were thrilled to have two dozen people involved with the carrying of the banner, the high wheel bike riding, the unicycle riding and the handing out of information about our congregation. Can you believe 450 pens were handed out? Many thanks to the many who helped. We were so fortunate to get the parade in between the rain showers.
Coed Softball We just had a big Memorial Day break. Now our next game is Monday, June 1st on diamond #1 at 7:15.
A good piece of scripture Here is some scripture from the E-100: John 3:16 - “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
Special link because it is a great article about St. Jacob. Part of it was in the paper but we have the entire blog article here with some good pictures:
