PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:

This coming Sunday is the Third Sunday after Epiphany.  Our worship services on the 25th of January are at 10:30 (led by our pipe organ) and noon (led by guitars and mandolin).  The gospel text for Sunday is Mark 1:14-20.  Pastor Hout’s sermon theme is “More Following?”  You can read this text and the entire Bible online at
www.biblegateway.com

Coed Volleyball has started and we have completed our first match. Next up is a doubleheader on the 26th at 6:30 and 7:30.  All our games are on Sixth St. at the Assembly of God gym.

Thanks so much for your visit to this page.  We hope you enjoy your time on our humble website.  It is good to have you here.  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.

It is was a busy week with CPAM (Children’s Performing Arts of Miamisburg) using our building last week.  They ended up with three fine performances and all three were packed!!!

Our annual meeting last Sunday went well.  We look forward to another year of work for our Lord.  How wonderful to be able to keep our ministry at 213 E. Central Avenue alive!

Prayers of the Church  We pray for the family and friends of Hazel Shell.  She died last week and her funeral service was Tuesday the 20th at 11:00am at St. Jacob.  We also pray for Gina Elson who had brain surgery at University Hospital in Columbus. We continue to pray for Herb Greggerson (slowly losing strength), Wanda Gebhart, Loueda Schultz, Don Stupp, Bob Greenlee, Iris Englebrecht and our military men: Zach Mathis, Blake Parrett and Rob Greenlee.  Taylor Macy is also in our prayers as she serves in the Peace Corps in Senegal.

Here is the Prayer of the Day for the third Sunday after Epiphany..............Almighty God, by grace alone you call us and accept us in your service.  Strengthen us by your Spirit, and make us worthy of your call, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.  Amen.

A good piece of scripture  Here is another powerful bit of scripture┬ from the E-100: Mark 1:17.....And Jesus said to them, ‘Follow me and I will make you fish for people.’ Also,  here is a good quote from Martin Luther-”The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.”

A 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:
