We are quickly coming to an end of what has been a great summer series in the Adult Class on Wednesday evenings.  This coming Wednesday, Joe Stenger will lead the class in a discussion of one more of Jesus’ “Hard Sayings And Neglected Commands” as he discusses the topic “Don’t Seek Personal Fairness” based on Matthew 5: 38-42.


Because of the rain last Sunday night, we postponed our outdoor worship service, and so this evening we are planning to meet again at our Reservoir Road property to worship together. A wiener roast will follow the service.  In the event of rain, we will meet at the church building.


Last Sunday morning, it was announced that Tim McKeen, Lindsay’s husband, would like to identify with our church family and to work under the oversight of our shepherds.  He has been worshipping with us for some time now.  We are so happy to have him as a part of our church family.


Last Sunday morning, a letter was read from Paul Huffman asking for our prayers for some personal struggles he is presently enduring

That evening, Kay Sowinski publicly responded to the invitation requesting our prayers for some difficulties her family is experiencing.

Our prayers are with both Paul & Kay that they will accept the Lord’s guidance in dealing with their individual difficulties and that they will enjoy the peace He alone offers.


After much prayer and deliberation regarding her being baptized in her youth, Sue Wirsing decided to be baptized again last Monday.  We rejoice with Sue and pray that she will have a long and productive life in serving the Lord.


Teams 2,4&5 will lead our Ministry of Encouragement for the next two weeks.
