PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:
Our next Sunday worship services are May 27th at 10:30 and noon. It will be Holy Trinity Sunday. The 10:30 service is led by the pipe organ (with our new midi system). The noon service is led by guitars. The sermon theme for this week will be based on that famous verse......John 3:16. The full text is John 3:1-17 and you can read it at the following link: www.biblegateway.com
Thanks for visiting We hope you enjoy your time on our new website. We may not be as big and fancy as some places but we are trying. And, after all, we have important people here......people like you!
Prayers of the Church We pray for Quillard Abney who had a bad fall this week. Others in our prayers include Hank and Shirley Dodson, Darleen Payne, Bev Kingrey, Don Stupp, Sandy Jones, Charlie Case, Bob Greenlee, Zachary Boyd (in the military) and Christopher Boyd (in seminary).
Congratulations to Chris Boyd He recently graduated from seminary in Pennsylvania!!! How exciting that is for him and his family. Our prayers continue for him as he goes through his Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) and his internship experience. It has been a busy time for the Boyd family as Chris’s little brother Jacob just graduated from high school.
Prayer of the day for Holy Trinity Sunday Almighty Creator and ever-living God: we worship your glory, eternal Three-in-One, and we praise your power, majestic One-in-Three. Keep us steadfast in this faith, defend us in all adversity, and bring us at last into your presence, where you live in endless joy and love, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Spring Fling this past weekend was great Well, it did rain. Arghh! Yes, it rained on our parade. Still, we were quite happy with the results. We had a nice unit and were well received by the crowd. Many thanks go to all who helped with the parade and our unit. Our very own St. Jacob member was grand marshal of the parade. Congratulations to Dick Church!!!
Historic Miamisburg updates Speaking of Mayor Church, he says things are looking good for all the events surrounding our 200th anniversary. The Riverfront Park looks great and plans are going well for the big parades on the 16th and 23rdof June. St. Jacob is only 197 but we will soon be celebrating our bicentennial. Our prayers are with Miamisburg and St. Jacob. We look forward to another year of ministry and another year of amazing activity as Jesus continually surprises us with his presence.
Looking back-Our sanctuary was packed for Easter Sunday and we had lots of visitors. How great to see both services so well attended. We also had a great Easter breakfast and a fun egg hunt. Many thanks to all who helped in so many ways to make all of this happen.
Looking back-fabulous S. S. Christmas program How great to have so many people involved in our annual Sunday School Christmas program. We remember that only a few years ago we were talking about having to cancel this event because we did not have any children. Yet, God has been good to us and here we are with not only a great program with lots of children but also a wonderful carry-in dinner before the event. Yum!!!
Looking back-Thanksgiving Day meal was AMAZING!!! We had a record crowd here for the 2017 edition of this meal. Can you believe we served 425 meals? Volunteers came from all over and worked together so well. Who could have dreamed of such a wonderful response? Many thanks to all who helped and especially to our coordinator and organizer, Dawn Warrick.
Looking back and ahead - a good piece of scripture More great words from the Bible......John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
