Highlights

  • You're Invited!
    Everyone is invited to an open house THIS Saturday, May 25th in honor of Taylor Weigert's high school graduation. It will be held at the Weigert's home from 11 am- 5 pm. Come help celebrate Taylor's accomplishment!
  • Scripture Preparation for Sunday's Message
    Read James 3:13-18 in preparation for Sunday's message.
  • True Wisdom: James 3:13-18
    What is wisdom? It is more than knowledge. A person can know right from wrong but a wise person will act on that knowledge. Wisdom isn't truly wisdom unless it is put into practice. As Christians, we are called to follow true wisdom that comes from God, rather than the false wisdom of the world. True wisdom is Christ-centered & others-oriented. A stark contrast from the selfish, prideful wisdom of the world.
  • Help Needed!
    William Loeffers is also looking for a temporary support person to help him out in the event of him receiving a kidney transplant. This person would
    need to be able to help him get around, fix meals, etc. and take him
    to his appointments for the 6-8 weeks following the transplant. They
    would need to be able to stay with him at his home, let him stay at
    their home, or check on him daily.
    He needs to have the support person in place before he can even be put
    on the transplant list. This person also needs to be able to travel
    with William to his evaluation appointment in Iowa City on May 28
    from 7:30 am until mid-afternoon.
    If you can help out, please let William know. It would be greatly
    appreciated!

  • Book Corner: The Grand Weaver by Ravi Zacharias
    How differently would we live if we believed that every dimension of our lives---from the happy to the tragic to the mundane---were part of a beautiful and purposeful design in which no thread were wrongly woven? That's what best-selling author and internationally-known apologist, Ravi Zacharias, explores in The Grand Weaver. As Christians, we believe that great events such as a death or a birth are guided by the hand of God. Yet we drift into feeling that our daily lives are the product of our own efforts. In this collection brimming with penetrating stories and insights, he examines how the different threads of our background, disappointments, triumphs, and beliefs are all the intentional and perfect design of the Creator.
  • Missionary of the Month: Cal & Joyce Voelker
    Cal & Joyce Voelker serve as missionaries in Portugal at the Greater Lisbon Christian Academy (GLCA). GLCA is a K-12 school that provides a quality education to children of missionaries as well as international students. Cal serves in administration and teaching. Joyce works as the school's administrative assistant. Cal & Joyce are also involved in a ministry to the deaf community.

    Prayer Requests:
    • Please keep praying for the four unsaved Nepalese girls Cal teaches several classes to every day and for an unsaved Nepalese boy in our junior high.

    • Many of our classrooms are full for next school year but we have other students from both unbelieving families and missionary families who would like to send their children to GLCA. Pray that God will make a way for those He wants us to influence at GLCA in 2019-2020.

    • Pray for more opportunities for us to share Christ in our day to day lives.
