PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:
This coming Sunday (5/29) is the 2nd Sunday after Pentecost. Join us for worship services on May 29th at 10:30 (which is led by our pipe organ) or at noon (led by guitars and mandolin). The gospel is Luke 7:1-10. Pastor Hout’s sermon theme is “Just Speak the Word.” You can read this weeks gospel text and the entire Bible online at www.biblegateway.com
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!
Prayers of the Church We have been praying for Quillard Abney and we were thrilled to see him in church this past Sunday. We will continue to pray for him along with Loueda Schultz, Don Stupp, Iris Englebrecht, Tim Downs, Bob Greenlee, Charlie Case as well as our military men: Zach Mathis, Rob Greenlee and Zachary Boyd. We also pray Taylor Macy (in Senegal with the Peace Corps) and Christopher Boyd (in seminary).
Prayer of the Day-2nd Sunday after Pentecost: “Merciful Lord God, we do not presume to come before you trusting in our own righteousness, but in your great and abundant mercies. Revive our faith, we pray; heal our bodies, and mend our communities, that we may ever more dwell in your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Many thanks to all who brought in their change on Pentecost Sunday. We have been having fun with our change challenges and they also go a long way toward helping our budget.
Co-ed softball Looks like it might be dry enough out there for another softball game!!! We are set for our next game at 7:15 on the 23rd of May on diamond #2 at Rice Field. It will be good to play earlier in the evening.
Lunch Bunch at Ron’s Pizza We will be meeting there this coming Thursday (26th) starting at 11:30 am. Our group is coming off a record turnout so we are hoping to fill Ron’s tables to overflowing!!!
