Bible Studies at Church

  • Sundays at 8:15 a.m. ~ Adult Bible Study

  • Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. - Vicar Walt Little

  • Fridays at 10:00 a.m. - Pastor Stolle

"God Was Not That Silent Between the Testaments" is the title of a new Bible study Pastor Dunn will be leading in the Sunday Adult Bible Class beginning June 23rd. We typically have the idea that between the last book of the Old Testament and the birth of Jesus God did not speak to His people. For most of us, our knowledge of the Old Testament ends with the destruction of Solomon's Temple and the Babylonian Captivity. We may be a bit sketchy on what happened after that. Yet, God's people still needed preparing for the "last days" (see how this term is used in Hebrews 1:1-2). This study will run through to the end of the summer.

Vicar Walt Little's Bible Study ~ Wednesdays @ 10:00 . New Bible Study begins Wednesday, June 5th: Bringing Biblical Truth to a Broken Culture, led by Vicar Walt Little.

Pastor Stolle’s Bible Class ~ Fridays @ 10:00 discussing Max Lucado’s book Help Is Here Finding Fresh Strength and Purpose in the Power of the Holy Spirit. The book is $20.

I can scan old photos or download anything digital from a CD/DVD or a flash drive. All photos will be returned to you. The photos will be in a large collage and displayed at our 60th anniversary celebration in November of this year. Please, make sure to put your name on your photos, so I may return them to you.

The Board of Human Care is collecting donations to put together healthy family meal kits. Each kit provides all the necessary ingredients for an easy, complete nutritious meal to feed one hunger-insecure family. Donations will be accepted through the end of July; benefiting both Harvester’s and the Messiah Food Pantry. Please consider donating individual or even all items that’s needed for a meal. Monetary donations will also be accepted to purchase ingredients. If contributing using a check, please designate “Family Meal Kit Donation Drive” so the funds can be allocated appropriately. See the table in the narthex or ask any member of the Human Care Board (Flannery Bartels, Johna Brill, Darlene Crain, Lourene Embree, Candy King, Mark and Mary Lippe, Dean and Bev Mettlen, Doug and Pam Rinas) for more information.
