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 you have a mean 2016. Or should we say a lean 2016. The best 2016 you ever seen? Please, stop by and visit us again. We try to update this site on a regular basis, even weekly.
Prayers of the Church We are praying for Virginia Kinderdine, Don Stupp, Iris Englebrecht and Bob Greenlee as well as our military men: Zach Mathis, Blake Parrett, Rob Greenlee and Zachary Boyd. Christopher Boyd in seminary and Taylor Macy in Senegal are also in our prayers.
Prayer of the Day for Transfiguration of our Lord Sunday: “Holy God, mighty and immortal, you are beyond our knowing, yet we see your glory in the face of Jesus Christ. Transform us into the likeness of your Son, who renewed our humanity so that we may share in his divinity, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Co-ed volleyball team is playing their hearts out and have another game on the first day of February. We play at the Miamisburg Assembly of God gym on Sixth Street and the games are on Monday nights. Our next game is the February 1st at 7:15.
Souper Bowl Sunday is nearly here. We now know the two teams for the Super Bowl - Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. With the addition of one little letter “o” this day can be turned into more than just a day about football. How nice to remember the hungry on SOUPER bowl Sunday. Please bring in some cans of food or some money for our food pantry or a check for the ELCA World Hunger appeal.
A good piece of scripture Here is some scripture we would like to highlight this week: Luke 9:43....”And all were astounded at the greatness of God.”
