Give THANKS to the Lord for he is good, his love endures (never stop) forever” ~ 1 Chronicles 16:34~
Thanksgiving is around the corner and we remind you what are you thankful for?
We have been working a lot to improve the church such as the worship platform with new carpet, installed a fire pit outside on the south side of the church, and cut down seven trees due to carpenter ant infestation and several dead trees.
We had three baptisms this past summer and 11 more baptism coming up, hooray! Thanks to God!
Karen Byington had her hip replacement surgery recently. She was supposed to have it in late October however was moved back earlier as she was happy to get in sooner. She is on the road to recovery slowly.
Joan Schenck had her root canal procedure then ended up in a hospital for a day due to high infection spreading throughout her body. She is at home now to get better!
Janet Jordan flew to Denver, Colorado to visit her daughter Ruth for four days. She is anxious to see God’s beauty of autumn and mountains.
We were amazed and in shock to hear what had happened to Janet Jordan and Dianne Oppriecht. One night, a drunken burglar broke into their apartment; Janet took a broom to defend herself and blocked him with it and called 911. We are thankful for God’s protection over them.
Several of our members went to Evergreen Campground in Wild Rose for Labor’s Day weekend. They had a good weather and enjoyed new game called baseball bean bags also had a lot of fun as well.
Shirley and Lee Frazier along with Milton Griepentrog drove up to Door Country, Wisconsin to visit their daughter Pam who bought a summer home. They enjoyed a break from everyday life for the weekend.
Not too far from the Frazier’s home, A house was exploded and destroyed the whole house completely and nine others houses were partially destroyed or severely damaged. Frazier’s home only had minor damage to their garage and front porch light was broken.
Martha Essig’s son was married last October 8th in Lake Tahoe, California. We wish their son and daughter in law the best of luck in their life. We will miss Martha and Mike Essig as they escaped to Florida for their winter home in Fort Meyers.
Dawn and Gregory Werth’s niece Amanda were married on a beautiful Indian summer in a barn that used to be an abandoned then remodeled the barn prior to the wedding. We enjoyed our ride back road to see all the autumn leaves started to change.
Fish dinner was a huge success again! Special thanks to George Evans and Otto Zabura for their time to prepare & cook the fish. They fished from the Delavan Lake and caught blue gills, walleye, and perch. Also, we had baked cod as well. It was such a beautiful day to eat outside before it gets colder.
