Prayer of the Day-15th Sunday after Pentecost.......... “O God, you resist those who are proud and give grace to those who are humble. Give us the humility of your Son, that we may embody the generosity of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
THIS SATURDAY - August 27th is our Top Festival Help us get the word out about our 17th event. It will be in downtown Pokemon territory at the ampitheater in River Front Park. It runs from 5-8pm and we even have restrooms this year. Need a top? Pastor Hout can get you one!!!
A good piece of scripture Here is some great scripture we would like to highlight. Luke 14:11 “For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
Last Sunday sure was great with the Paragon Quartet They sounded great and are such nice people. How thrilling to have them in worship. They also helped us to have a nice crowd and increased attendance. Paragon Quartet - come visit us anytime!!!
Air Conditioning problems Parts of our building have been pretty warm this summer because one of our units is out of commission. We were looking at a large large number to repair it but are fortunate to finally end up with a $10,000 figure to get everything going again. Can you help us with some of this cost? Perhaps this is the opportunity you have been waiting for to get behind a project at St. Jacob and support us in your own personal way.
It has been a busy summer with all kinds of activity like Christmas in July and Co-Ed softball and an Ice Cream Social and another fantastic Day Camp. Did you hear about our great Day Camp and the fantastic counselors from LOMO (Lutheran Outdoor Ministries in Ohio)? How great to gather under the theme “The Jesus Way”. Yes, indeed, Jesus feeds, forgives, loves, serves and prays....plus he teaches us to do the same.
We continue to celebrate with Bob Arledge who recently visited with us and then went out and won another national championship for his age group (80-84). He said he would have beaten those in the 70 age group, too. Good job, Bob!
