Rev. David Tews

Well, the new organ did arrive on July 25th and was installed in time to be dedicated at the beginning of the service on July 27th. With the trade-in on the old organ the new organ was $1,000 less than the purchase price of $14,200. At the August 12th Church Council the date of Sunday, September 21, was chosen on the condition that the guest organist could play that Sunday afternoon. It was confirmed last week that the guest organist came make that date.

On Sunday, September 21, at 4 p.m. we will celebrate our 40th anniversary as a congregation with a worship service that includes an organ concert by Mr. Douglas Schroeder, organist at St. John's Lutheran Church of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and son of Armin and Tina Schroeder. Following the service there will be a free supper furnished for all in attendance. To help with the ordering and preparation of the food we are asking that you sign up on the church bulletin board or call the church office. Invitations will be going out to community churches and the Lutheran Churches in our circuit as well. We are asking that they also let us know how many are planning on staying for the free supper. Sufficient funds are available for the meal both from the leftover money in the organ fund and a healthy balance of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans funds in Shepherd of the Hills' checking account.

As we celebrate God's blessings and guidance over the past 40 years as His congregation we pray for His continued guidance and direction as we continue to proclaim "Jesus Christ Crucified." The words from Hebrews 13:8 that are the banner from our 25th anniversary are still a good motto for us as we celebrate our 40th anniversary as congregation here in Horseshoe Bend. "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, and today and forever."
895 Now Thank We All Our God

1 Now thank we all our God
With hearts and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done,
In whom His world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms
Has blest us on our way
With countless gifts of love
And still is ours today.

Oh, may this bounteous God
Through all our life be near us,
With ever joyful hearts
And blessèd peace to cheer us
And keep us in His grace
And guide us when perplexed
And free us from all ills
In this world and the next!

3 All praise and thanks to God
The Father now be given,
The Son, and Him who reigns
With them in highest heaven,
The one eternal God,
Whom earth and heav’n adore;
For thus it was, is now,
And shall be evermore.
