Special Voters Meeting Concerning Tri-Parish Ministry Arrangement

A special voters meeting was held on January 5th at St. John’s Renville to discuss council recommendations concerning the tri-parish arrangement and service times.  The members of St. John’s expressed an interest in changing to an 11:00 am worship time. 

This change would be pending approval by voters at St. Matthew’s Danube and St. Matthew Flora.

Please pray for our church leaders, for the members of St. John’s, St. Matthew’s Danube, St. Matthew Flora Twp, Pastor Kuschel, and his family as we continue to discuss what may be the best way to serve the needs our local congregations.

Catechism Classes will resume on January 8

Catechism instruction will take place on Wednesday, January 8. Those beginning their first year of Catechism instruction will meet at St. Matthew’s Danube on Wednesdays from 4:45 pm – 5:45 pm.  Eighth-grade students working towards confirmation will meet for Catechism instruction on Wednesdays from 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm at St. John’s Renville. 

May God bless these young men and women as they grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Tri-Parish Ministry Trial

We invite members and guests of all the congregations to make use of any of these worship times and Bible Studies as we come together to praise our God and to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.  The church councils will be evaluating this arrangement for the next few months to see if this is a suitable long term solution. May God bless this plan as he sees fit. If you have any questions or concerns please contact your pastor and talk to your church council, your feedback and input are welcome.
