WE WELCOME EVERYONE who has worshipped with us this morning, especially our guests.  We hope you will be able to worship with us again soon.


THE CANDLE LIGHTERS for this morning’s worship service are Courtnie Lambrecht and Erica Slagle.   Next Sunday morning they will be Cole Kralicek and Brock Johnson.


WE REMEMBER IN OUR PRAYERS TODAY:  Molly Beacom, Carol Kumm, Bernice Kumm, Ruth Groothuis,  Dorothy Anson,   Danny Anderson, Dennis Johnson and Bonnie Korth.   If you have prayer requests for any members of your family or friends, please notify Pastor or the church secretary to have them added and also when you want them removed.


THE FLOWERS AT THE ALTAR are from the funeral of Mrs. Pam Schieffer.  We thank her family for sharing them with us and extend our sincere sympathy.




            “He is in your hands; but you must spare his life,” God said to Satan regarding His servant Job.  Well, we have no cattle, our children are gone (thankfully alive and independent!), no manservants nor maidservants, and not a single camel in sight.  Our tomato crop is pathetic (but the cucumbers have been great!) So is God pulling a “Job” on me?  I’ve survived Vietnam, several surgeries, lymphoma times two, and now I am facing bladder cancer.  By no means!  God has blessed me throughout my lifetime and those blessings surpass whatever trials have come my way.

            What can we all learn from this?  That being spiritually alive and active is the best exercise to fight off all the perils of this world.  Prayer.  Bible study.  Worship.  All those are vitamins and antibiotics worthy of prescription to all Christians.  With all that on my side, what more can I ask?  God promises me that nothing can separate me from His love, and that He works for the good of those who love Him.  I trust His promises.  I pray that you will too.

                                                                        In His Name,

                                                                        Gary Trowbridge
