SUNDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY
This fall starting September 15th at 8:20 a.m. Pastor Dukovan will continue leading Bible study. The first few Sundays will conclude our study of the Last book of the Bible, Revelation.
Then we will read and study the Gospel according to Matthew. We will look at how the book is organized. You can have the opportunity to learn more about the Sermon on the Mount, the Beatitudes, our Lord’s parables of the kingdom, His teachings and His passion for us.
So join us as we walk with Matthew.
Can You Lend A Helping Hand?
LCMS World Relief is there in times of tragedy such as what we are currently witnessing in the Philippines. Our Church makes simple quilts that are given to those in need of a little warmth around the world. We need more hands to accomplish this task. Please lend your hand to help this important ministry.
How can you help? Join us when we meet to quilt. Don’t sew? That’s fine; we just need your willing hands. There is plenty of work that does not involve any sewing. Check the Church calendar for meeting times. Don’t have two hours to spare? That’s fine too; come for the amount of time you can. We welcome your help; many hands make light the work.
Can’t join us? How about donating some fabric? We make use of old sheets, pillow cases, blankets, quilts, curtains, tablecloths…anything with some yardage of material. Donated material can be left on the cart in the room next to the kitchen where the freezers are located.
If you would like to learn more about our quilting ministry please consult Vangie Kuehl (920-474-4181), The next scheduled quilting time will be Tuesday, January 14 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Hope to see you there. Thank you for your help!

AN ATHEIST'S VIEW ON LIFE
I will live my life according to these beliefs
God does not exist
It is just foolish to think
That there is a God with a cosmic plan
That an all-powerful God brings purpose to
the pain and suffering in the world
It’s a comforting thought however
Is only wishful...thinking
People can do as they please without eternal consequences
The idea that
I am deserving of Hell
Because of sin
Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power
The more you have the happier you will be
Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose
In a world with no God
There is freedom to be who I want to be
But with God
Everything is fine
It is ridiculous to think
I am lost and in need of saving
VERSUS A CHRISTIAN'S VIEW ON LIFE
(Now…read from bottom to top to see a different view.)
JELLY BEAN POEM
Little jelly beans
Tell a story true.
A tale of Father's love
Just for me and you.
GREEN is for the waving palms.
YELLOW is for the sun above.
BROWN is for the soft earth where
People sat hearing of HIS love.
A SPECKLED bean for fish and sand.
RED for precious wine and
BLACK is for the sin
He washed from you soul and mine.
PURPLE'S for the sadness of
HIS family and His friends,
WHITE is for the glory of
The Day HE rose again.
Now that you've heard the story
You know what each color means.
The story of our Father's love
Told by some jelly beans.
So every morning take a bean
They're really very yummy.
Something for the soul, you see
And something for the tummy
