Advent Devotional

Madonna & Child
by Marcia Bauerle
It's been many months since I posted anything new on this church the point that Google deleted all the old posts!  It was taking up way too much of my time, but I need to let you know a few things and this is the best way to do it!  Hope you are enjoying this amazing fall, and hanging in there with all the crazy business that seems to happen in our lives.  Since Chase County Schools had Fall Break on Friday, lots of our friends are in Lincoln for the game (Yea, Huskers!)  

October 30th is Consecration Sunday, with a great meal after the 10:30 service.  Hope to see all of you there.  I am going to skip the desserts so I can indulge in pie and ice cream at the Celebration of Margaret Uden's life at M&M JAZ. (Okay, I will probably eat dessert at both places!)

The image shown here is going to be part of our Advent Devotional that the Imperial Republican is printing and should be ready in the next week!  It has turned into a great little booklet-- lots of people have spent many hours getting it put together.  It is our prayer that the results of this effort will become a meaningful part of our church family's preparation for Christmas this year and for many years to come.  I can't wait for you all to see it!

Memorial services for Jean Moline will be held at the church on Monday, October 31st at 10:30.  Keep her family in your prayers as they adjust their lives to accommodate their loss.
