PASTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE:
Our next Sunday worship services are October 22nd at 10:30 and noon. The 10:30 service is led by the pipe organ (with our new midi system) and the noon service is led by guitars. Pastor Hout’s sermon theme will be “Sincere” and it will be based on the gospel for the Sunday which is Matthew 22:15-22. You can read the gospel and the entire Bible at www.biblegateway.com
Thanks for visiting We hope you enjoy your time on our humble website. We may not be as big and fancy as some places but we have important people here......people like you!
Did you see Pastor Hout in the Tweed Ride? The word on the street is that he might even get a prize for his outfit and his old timey bike.
Prayers of the Church Our prayers are with Mable Braunschweiger who heads for some surgery this week. We celebrate with Kim Miller on her successful surgery. Other in our prayers include Dick Myers, Bev Kingrey, Jim Williams, Kim Miller, Don Stupp, Sandy Jones, Charlie Case, Bob Greenlee, and Charlie Lewis. We have also been praying for Zachary Boyd (in the military) and Christopher Boyd (in the seminary). Chris was in worship with us this past Sunday!!! Madison Wolfe (in the Philippines as a missionary) is another we are praying for. Can you believe Hank Dodson has had his transplanted heart for twenty years?
Prayer of the day for the 20th Sun. after Pentecost: Sovereign God, raise your throne in our hearts. Created by you, let us live in your image; created for you, let us act for your glory; redeemed by you, let us give you what is yours, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Our hayride went well Yes, despite all the rain in the afternoon, the skies cleared in time for our annual hayride at the Warrick Farm on Union Road. How great to see all the animals, all the trees, all the s’mores and more. Of course, we also had a great campfire and a terrific hayride. It was a good night with lots of participation.
Sewing workshop This was recently held at St. Jacob and a number of people attended to get ready for the 200th anniversary of Miamisburg. It was great to see rooms full of activity and sewing.
Our fall congregational meeting We appreciate everyone staying for the recent congregational meeting. It went well as we considered the next budget and the new slate of officers.
Miamisburg High School Work Study We are so happy to have back with us the work study crew from MHS. They will be here on Wednesday mornings this year. The group does such a wonderful job helping out with litter around the building and so much more. They also worked with Pastor Hout in our picnic table/rock garden area. It looks spiffy and ready for lots of children to come see our rocks.
Two pianos? Who needs two pianos? Well, we do not NEED two pianos but we certainly can use two pianos for big duets. Nobody else around is thinking this big like St. Jacob Lutheran. Many thanks to Star City Music Studio for letting us use their new Steinway for a bit. Can you believe we already have a two piano concert set?
A good piece of scripture and more great words from the Bible. Matthew 22:22 ”When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.”
A special link because it is a great article about St. Jacob. Part of it was in the paper but we have the entire blog article here with some good pictures:
