Stephen Ministry Facts
Illness – The doctor called. More tests. It has been dragging on so long already. The whole family is feeling the strain. Illness.
Are you - or is someone you care for going into the hospital? A Stephen Minister would like to be there for you, both now and during your recovery. A Stephen Minister will listen and help you find the resources to make it through this difficult time.
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.
Isaiah 6:3 – “And one called to another and said:’ Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!”
Behold the threefold Name of God. Here in Isaiah the angels cry Holy, Holy, Holy, which is nothing else than an indication of Father, Son, and Holy Spirt. This is the Name we are baptized into. We have been made a part of God’s family. And so we are now called to live lives that are in harmony with our new family. We are to be godly and to live in God’s image. As God is loving, kind, and generous, so are we called to be.

Summer Camp is Still On! Email from Pastor Kevin Bueltmann: “Gov. Bullock announced on May 19th the state will move to Phase Two of the Reopening the Big Sky plan and will lift the 14 day out-of-state travel quarantine beginning June 1 as Montana continues to have the lowest number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations per capita. We look forward to keeping you safe at camp this summer!”
