Lent worship services Now that we are in the season of Lent we will, once again, have our annual Wednesday worship services. They are at 7pm with a simple soup supper at 6pm. Please join us for one of these five services before Holy Week.
Next Sunday is our annual Lenten Fair Please join us for this great night of hands on learning. There will be lots of exhibits and lots of good food for everyone. It runs from 5-7pm.
We are glad you are here!!! 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.
Prayers of the Church We pray for the family and friends of Zachary Bustillo. He is the son of Jim Bustillo who attends the noon service. We also pray for the family and friends of Mary Schubert who died in Florida. The family will have a memorial service for her in May. An answer to prayers has been good old Dale Schram. He was back leading the choir after having a nasty fall last week. Other individuals in our prayers include Loueda Schultz (now down in Texas), Michael Allikas, Wanda Gebhart, Iris Englebrecht, Don Stupp, Bob Greenlee and our military men: Zach Mathis, Blake Parrett and Rob Greenlee. We also pray for Taylor Macy in Senegal serving with the Peace Corps.
Here is the Prayer of the Day for the Second Sunday in Lent: O God, by the passion of your blessed Son you made an instrument of shameful death to be for us the means of life. Grant us so to glory in the cross of Christ that we may gladly suffer shame and loss for the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Coed Volleyball Yea! We did not lose last week. Of course, because of the snow, all the games were canceled. Our next match is the 23rd at 8:30. All our games are on Sixth St. at the Assembly of God gym.
A good piece of scripture Here is a bit of scripture from the E-100: Mark 8:31-38 ”If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.” 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:
