Stephen Ministry Facts

“An Empty, Aching Hole- and Memories.”
Someone you love has died, and the world is darker.
At a time like this, you need a caring, concerned friend to listen to you and be with you. A Stephen Minister would like to be that friend.   

A (new) training class for Stephen Ministries is starting soon. Consider this ministry opportunity. For more information, contact Pastor Thomas, Betty Textor or Abbe Heemeier. Be a working Christian.

Stewardship Notes:
Luke 8:11 – “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.”
It all starts with the Word. “In the beginning the Word was with God…” “He saved us by the regeneration of water and the Word…” “The Word of the Lord stands forever.” We never outgrow our need to hear the Word of God. We never achieve such greatness that we don’t need the blessings of God’s Word. Rather, the Christian life is one of always striving to conform our lives to God’s Word and to live out the truth of our Baptism. We are God’s children by the power of his Word.

Thought for the Day – John 3:16

Do You Like to Sew? Do You Like To Serve Others and God? - If your answer is YES to both questions, you can make a dress out of a pillowcase for young girls who live in warm climates. See Freda, if interested – she has directions. If you sew them, she’ll send them.
