At other times, the message reflects on especially relevant aspects of our congregational life or cultural events that are shaping our spiritual and emotional well-being.

Update: Restoring Our Lord's House
Thank you for your generosity and your hard work in completing the remodeling project thus far. The mid-point in the capital campaign has been achieved. Phase 1 (paint, kitchen remodel & flooring) funds have been raised and the work is ongoing. The kitchen cabinets have arrived and nearly all cabinetry has been installed. There is still trim and countertops needed but the kitchen is taking shape! The vinyl flooring has also been relayed.
Phase 2 tasks (signage, furnishings, restroom upgrades, a/c units) are being completed as funding allows. The entry door 'Welcome' signage has been installed, the restrooms have been repainted, and the new bathroom vanities are now in place. We are purchasing furnishings for the narthex, commons area, and youth room and the new kitchen wiring, plumbing, and countertop installation are soon to be finished.
Your continued financial (and physical) support is still needed! Prayerfully consider making a financial contribution to Restoring Our Lord's House.
John Mohl Campership Fund Scholarships
Have you made camping plans for this summer? Consider signing up for a fun and faith-based summer program at Camp Wartburg in Waterloo, IL. At Camp Wartburg, children and families become immersed in God’s awesome creation where the traditional pursuits of sports and academics become secondary to the values of curiosity, tolerance of others, self-discovery and learning-by-doing. Worshiping under the stars before a campfire becomes an exciting, joyful experience. Learning new skills is a goal, but fun is the process. Campers may learn to shoot an arrow, canoe, swim, fish, play non-traditional games and so much more. Led by college-aged counselors who love the Lord and children, campers blossom under the supervision of positive role models, function in small groups and engage in discussions around Bible studies, values and respect for other people and nature. Camp Wartburg provides day and overnight camping opportunities for both youth and families. Please contact the church office at Our Lord's for more information about scholarships offered via the John Mohl Campership Fund for these wonderful, Christ-centered, summer camp opportunities!
