Our vision is to glorify God by helping bruised, turned off, or hurting people, experience the grace of God, and become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.

Home Sweet Home Page

Walking with Jesus is what we have been doing throughout the summer and fall. We are following the gospel of Mark getting to know Jesus better, as we study who Jesus was from Peter's perspective, as recorded by Mark.

Walking With Jesus


What pumps you up spiritually?  A dynamic sermon?

A powerful book?  A heart gripping faith story?

Inspiring music?  How long do you stay pumped up? Today we look at 3 disciples who met Jesus on the mountain.


Listen to this and all of the sermons on the “Sunday Morning” page, right here at our church’s website.

Here is how you can be involved:

*Pray for who you should invite.

*Decorations Team: We need a team of people who will come up with ideas transforming the church for Christmas. The first meeting is October 8th right after church.

*Refreshments Team: We need your best Christmas cookies and treats! Please sign up on the back bulletin board. We hope to have a large crowd and need a LOT of treats!

*November 26th: Christmas setup day right after the morning service. We need 25 people to get everything, inside and outside, ready for the next Friday. Free pizza and other goodies.





*WE HAVE ONLY ONE MORE WEEK*

Operation Christmas Child collection week is Nov. 13-20th.

Don’t forget to begin getting those boxes filled! We have 100 boxes which can be divided among us.

We need people who are willing to man the collection table, pack the large cartons and take the cartons to Woodbury Lutheran twice during that week. Also, if you are willing to work at the processing center, let Molly know.

We may just volunteer when enough of us are able to go without registering for a special time.




Hastings Family Service Gift Tree: Each year, HFS collects gifts for families who need a little help during the holidays. You can get involved by buying something from the list and bringing it back to church this month (unwrapped). Jim and Reenie will then organize and bring the gifts to HFS. Thanks for your participation.




“Talent” Night: We are planning a fun evening where you can have the opportunity to do whatever you can do. Let's see what we can come up with. This is for all ages, beginners to experienced, serious or funny. It is all about the family entertaining the family and encouraging one another.




Pick up the new church directory: It is a new format which contains more information. You can also make additions and changes more easily. Thanks to Lori for putting this together.




Faith Stories: We are putting together a book of your faith stories. It is a good discipline to write out when you came to Jesus in a short and compelling format. Here is an example of a simple outline:

1. My life before I became a Christian.

2. The circumstances that surround me making a decision.

3. What I said to turn my life over to Jesus.

4. My life now with God in control (hallelujah)


Give them to Lori in the church office.




Growing Deeper This Fall:

Would you like to meet with 1 or 2 other men or women once a week for the fall season, to study the Bible, pray, and get back on track with Jesus?  You determine the where and when.  Talk to Pastor Randy to get linked up with a leader.

This is low key, you determine your agenda, but guaranteed to help you grow deeper.



THANKS for giving $1,051 to the ministry of Teen Challenge!



"I can do that!"  Here are some opportunities for you to get involved in events that we have coming up:


Volunteer Opportunities:

Sign Up to make coffee - we need to have 10 people each take a week.

Also needed are 2 more Sunday School teachers on a rotational basis. Talk to Linda or Molly.


Body Parts Missing!

As a part of this church, you are a part of the body of Christ. As in the human body each organ has its part, and all parts are needed, so in the church every body is needed to do their part. Currently we have some holes that need filling. We need people to:

1. Cut the grass

2. Spread weed killer

3. Small paint jobs

4. Stripe parking lot

5. Help with the Youth Group starting up

6. Be a greeter

Please talk to Ron Logid or Pastor Randy if you can use your body to help "the body". Thanks!



**SNOW SHOVELERS!**

We need people to sign up for a week (Monday-Sunday) to make sure our sidewalks are clean.




Military Bible Stick is a tool which is being used to supply audio MP3 copies of the New Testament to men and women in active military service. Chaplains give these out to anyone who requests them free of charge.

That's where you come in.

$25 pays for one Military Bible Stick, plus, if they request it, they can receive one for their spouse at home, and special versions for their children. We have used our benevolent offerings from the past two Sundays for this ministry. If you haven’t already, please make checks out to Calvary and we will send the entire amount to Faith Comes By Hearing. Thank You!
