Nine high school youth, Carol Magee, Mark Buettner and Pastor Kleinschmidt attended the Higher Things Youth Conference entitled “Bread of Life” on the campus of the University of Northern Iowa July 5th-8th. 2016.  They heard in the worship services and the large group gatherings of the many ways that Jesus is the Bread of Life. As Christians we receive Jesus and he sustains us in both body and soul. The one thing needful, in this life and the next, is Jesus, the Bread of Life.

Vacation Bible School VBS will be held the week of June 5th-9th in the mornings. The theme this year is Mighty Fortress: In Jesus, the Victory is Won! Using the Reformation hymn, A Mighty Fortress is our God, we’ll learn the Bible verse “Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Cor. 15:57) The week of VBS is the week after school gets out and the week before Summer School begins. Make plans now to have your children attend, help, or tell your grandkids and friends about this great opportunity to learn about Jesus. Look for registration material in the coming months.
