Stephen Ministry Facts

The flowers were wonderful, but they’ve wilted now.
You’ve received loads of cards. But there aren’t very many visitors anymore. It’s still weeks before you can be back at work.
Please let us help with your recovery.

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:
Jeremiah 23:17 – “They say continually to those who despise the word of the LORD, ‘It shall be well with you’; and to everyone who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, ‘No disaster shall come upon you.’ ”
Jeremiah’s day sounds a lot like our own: with self-appointed prophets in the popular media telling people exactly what they want to hear. But preachers of the true Word of the Lord do us the sometimes-difficult favor to telling us what is actually true. And that often challenges us, shows us our sins, and calls us to repentance and a change in life.

The next two weeks  - August 2nd through the 15th Pastor will be out of the office:
  • attending continuing education  classes (2nd – 8th)
  • vacation (9th – 15th).

Remember In Your Prayers
  • Members that you have not seen in church for a long time. If possible, call them to let them know they are missed.
  • The people who will receive items made by the sewing club.

Sewn With Love Club – two boxes of dresses, shorts and tote bags were sent this week to Minot and Lame Deer. A box to Orphan Grain Train will be sent next week. Thanks to the recent donations of supplies Sharon, Katie, Martha, Lisa, and Rose Marie. God Bless!
Donations of supplies, spare change for help with postage and new members are always welcome and appreciate.

Soap Box – From now until Aug. 30th, we will collect bar soap for Orphan Grain Train and Global Health. Let us fill the box!! You will find it in the kitchen.

Faith Kits – This past week five boxes containing Bible Lessons, crafts, ideas for family activities, etc. were sent to our Sunday School students. This was done to let them know they have not been forgotten and to keep their faith growing. There has not been Sunday School since the 2nd Sunday in March and no VBS or Sunday School this summer.
God willing, on Rally Day (Sept. 6th), we can meet again for learning and growing our faith.
