PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:
Our next Sunday worship services will be the 26th of March at 10:30 and noon. The gospel for this coming Sunday is John 9:1-41. Pastor Hout’s theme is “Was blind but now I see” Our 10:30 service is led by the pipe organ (with a new midi system which we recently dedicated) and the noon service is led by guitars. You can read this gospel text and the entire Bible online at www.biblegateway.com
Midweek Lent Services Please join us for our 7pm worship services on Wednesday. There will be five of these worship services and the evening starts off with a soup supper at 6pm. Our theme this year is “Luther, Lent and his catechisms.” We talked about his section on confession at the Ash Wednesday service. Then we talked about the ten commandments. Last week we covered the Apostles’ creed. This Wednesday the 22nd we will look at the Lord’s Prayer. Holy Baptism and Blessings are yet to come and on Maundy Thursday we will discuss the Lord’s Supper.
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!
Prayers of the Church There is lots of good news from our prayer list. Henry Gore, Emily Yeager, Randy Hardin and the Abneys are all doing better. And, get this, Bill Russell came to church to a thunderous ovation and will soon get a new prosthesis leg. Others in our prayers include Jim Wagner, Jim Williams, Don Stupp, Sandy Jones, Tim Downs, Bob Greenlee and Charlie Case. We have been praying for Zachary Boyd in the military and Pastor Hout was thrilled to meet his 2nd grade teacher at a “We Care Arts” Gala. Christopher Boyd in seminary is in our prayers along with the Bentleys.
Prayer of the Day - Fourth Sunday in Lent “Bend your ear to our prayers, Lord Christ, and come among us. By your gracious life and death for us, bring light into the darkness of our hearts, and anoint us with your Spirit, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
We just completed our 38th Lenten Fair What a great night of hands on learning for people of all ages. We had nice food and a nice crowd to enjoy all the symbols and more. We are looking forward to our 39th one next year.
Our New Library is now open 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 their new home. Wow, what a great crowd at the grand opening!!!
A good piece of scripture Here are some more words from the Bible.....John 9:4 “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.“
