What's Happening Now?

Sunday, January 17th

Adult Instruction Class: Pastor Hoem leads the Adult Instruction Class, immediately following the Divine Service (approximately 11:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.) in the Nerger room.

Baby Items Campaign Continues: Consider giving new or like-new baby items: burp cloths, bath items, baby bathtubs, pacifiers, teethers, diaper cream, toys, baby clothing, socks, etc. Each item will help local charities, such as Shepherd’s Hand. Drop off your items in front of the church office in the baby bassinet by February 15.

Epiphany 2  – “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” (John 1:46). Can anything good come from surprise pregnancy? Can anything good come from chronic illness? Jesus is both promise and proof of the wonders that come from just such contexts. Miracles come from Nazareth. Forgiveness comes from Calvary. Almighty God put them there. And He also created, redeemed, and called both worth and purpose into every human body (1 Corinthians 6:19), no matter what size, skills, or circumstances.
