PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:
Our next Sunday worship services will be the 2nd of June at 10:30 and noon. The gospel for this 4th Sunday after Pentecost is Matthew 10:40-42 and Pastor Hout’s theme is “Just a Cup of Water”. Our 10:30 service is led by the pipe organ (with our new midi system) and the noon service is led by guitars. You can read this gospel text and the entire Bible online at www.biblegateway.com
Day Camp from 9am until 3pm this week It is an exciting time here at St. Jacob with 10 college age counselors here from LOMO (Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Ohio) plus 100 children and lots of other adult helpers from St. Jacob. Come join us if you can. Maybe you know of some who would like to join us? Give us a call or just come and be a part of it all.

Talent Show was fun We had another tremendous talent show and it was also the 95th birthday of Dale Schram. It was great to highlight him on this evening and have special guests in to surprise him.....like his family and the Miamisburg Community Chorus. The mayor even stopped by and gave him a proclamation making June Dale Schram month!!!
Luther House Gang reunion was wonderful How nice to see the gang together again. They gathered at the 10:30 service with their old leader, Mayor Dick Church. So many great stories were shared along with a lot of terrific pictures from Dick Church.
A good piece of scripture Here are some more words from the Bible. Matthew 10:42 states...”Whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple - truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.”
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:
