PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:

This coming Sunday is the Fifth Sunday of Easter.  Our worship services on the 10th of May are at 10:30 (led by our pipe organ) and noon (led by guitars and mandolin).  The gospel text for next Sunday is John 15:9-15  Pastor Hout’s sermon theme is “This Is My Commandment.”  You can read this 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! 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  Our prayers are with the family and friends of Wanda Gebhart. Her funeral service was this past Monday at St. Jacob Lutheran Church. We are happy to see Diana Gore and Dan Poffenberger getting around pretty well after their surgeries. We continue to pray for Michael Allikas, Saron McLaughlin, Iris Englebrecht, Don Stupp and Bob Greenlee. Of course, we are also praying for our military men Zach Mathis, Blake Parrett and Rob Greenlee and Taylor Macy in Senegal with the Peace Corps.

Here is the Prayer of the Day for the Sixth Sunday of Easter: O God, you have prepared for those who love you joys beyond understanding.  Pour into our hearts such love for you that, loving you above all things, we may obtain your promises, which exceed all we desire; through Jesus Christ, your Son and our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Coed Softball is in full swing Can you believe we are up to our third game this year? Monday May 11th is our next game. We are on diamond #1 at 7:15.

A good piece of scripture  Here is some scripture from the E-100: John 15:9- “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love.”

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:
