PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:
Our next Sunday worship services will be the 26th of February at 10:30 and noon. The gospel for this coming Sunday is from the seventeenth chapter of Matthew, verses one through nine. Pastor Hout’s theme is “Be Thou My Vision.” Our 10:30 service is led by the pipe organ (with a new midi system which we will dedicate this Sunday) and the noon service is led by guitars. You can read this gospel text and the entire Bible online at www.biblegateway.com
Thanks for visiting 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!

Prayer of the Day - Transfiguration Sunday “O God, in the transfiguration of your Son you confirmed the mysteries of the faith by the witness of Moses and Elijah, and in the voice from the bright cloud declaring Jesus your beloved Son, you foreshadowed our adoption as your children. Make us heirs with Christ of your glory, and bring us to enjoy its fullness, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Our New Library opens this week We are excited about this because of the new opportunities it offers to our community and we are also excited because our very own Bill Pardieck works at the library. Hope all goes well for him and the rest of the staff in this transition time.
CPAM and Alice were great The Children’s Performing Arts of Miamisburg just concluded their production of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It was a great show and well received by the community. Can you believe all three shows were sellouts? How terrific to have so many fine young people in our building. How nice, also, to receive a kind thank you note from them.
A good piece of scripture Here are some more words from the sermon on the mount.....Matthew 17:5 ”While he was still speaking, suddenly a bright cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud a voice said, “This is my Son, the Beloved; with him I am well pleased; listen to him!”
