Time to be Thankful

It's fall--with beautiful sunrises, sunsets, and trees. It is "fall back" to Central Standard Time today, but we have much for which to be thankful.

What are you thankful for? As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, let us remind ourselves of our blessings, and remember to see those each day, regardless the trials we encounter.

Christ is always with us, to help us through any situation. Are you thankful?

Our nursery has been remodeled. Come worship with us and see or use our lovely nursery. Our new mural is painted by Peg Burger, retired art teacher from Cerro Gordo, and her friend Joy. Isn't it beautiful?!

Becky Deinstadt comes to play during worship once a month. We sure appreciate and love her!

Great-grandpa Carl Cable has a helper with offering--Lincoln Sager. Good way to start him out right, Grandpa Carl!

Summer Activities

Our congregation has been busy this summer!
We started out with our Annual Strawberry Festival in June--it was a great success and many people ate quantities of delicious strawberries, ice cream, and strawberry pie.
Many thanks to all the workers who helped out during this event!

Next was our luncheon outing.
This year we all met at Judy's Kitchen in Cerro Gordo, about 24 of us in all.
We had a delicious buffet of walleye, green beans, potatoes, fruit and salads, and, of course, pie.
We always have a fun time--it's a great opportunity to visit.

Just this past weekend, in conjunction with the annual Village-wide rummage sales, we had our food stand in our parking area beside the church.
Friday and Saturday were both very busy days.
We sold out of most of our food--what a blessing!
Thanks to all the workers who helped make this fundraiser so successful!

Next weekend we will be parking cars next to Flaugher Appliance Center during the Decatur Celebration.
This is another important fundraiser for us--and we are grateful for all who park their car in "our" lot.
If you are coming to the Celebration, park in our lot--it is just a short walk to the celebration activities.

Sunday, August 7 is Church in the Park.
We will be meeting in Born Park in Cerro Gordo for our worship--no Sunday School that day.
After our worship, we will enjoy a potluck lunch.
All are welcome to join us in worshipping God in our great outdoors.

We welcome all to our church.
Please join us.
Sunday School is at 9:00 and worship is at 10:00 each Sunday morning.
Bible study meets at 9:30 Tuesday mornings--all are welcome.
(However, Bible study is on hiatus until Sept. 6.)

We are having a soup supper for the community this coming Saturday, February 20, from 4:30 to 6:30. Come enjoy a variety of soups, sandwiches, and desserts! All are welcome! Funds raised will be used to help increase our witness commission's funds. These funds are used for community or other outreach.
 

We were privileged to have Doug Larrick come to worship with his music a few weeks ago. Here is Doug with all his family members that come to our church.

Our congregation will be hosting a Lenten service on Sunday, February 28 at 4:00. You are welcome to join us and then stay for our fellowship meal afterwards. The Lenten services are with all our area Church of the Brethren congregations, one congregation hosts each Sunday of Lent.

Another occasion to look forward to is our Palm Sunday Echoes of Praise cantata at 5:00. We will have a meal following that event as well.

As always, we welcome you to join us any time for worship and Sunday School!
