Opportunities

Picnic area 3 on the Root River Parkway is reserved for Sunday, June 3 for the Annual Southside Family Picnic.  One or two families or individuals are needed to organize the picnic which involves arriving at the sight early, transporting grills, plates and utensils, beverages, having the grills set up and ready to be used when the picnic begins and cleanup after everybody leaves.  Please see Julie Shuster or Kevin Morrill for details or if you are interested.

An organization in the greater Milwaukee is collecting feminine hygiene products for women in area homeless shelters.  A donation box is in the foyer.

Volunteers to help count the contribution after morning service are needed.  Please contact Louie Hill  if you are interested.

Southside is in need of a historian.

Please contact Shirley Cerka if you are able to help in the children’s nursery during the worship time.

The children’s ministry is in need of teachers, assistants and subs.  A strong and well supported Children’s ministry is vital to the health of any church, so please consider helping.  No previous experience is necessary.  If interested, talk to April Alexander or Ken Koch.  The “Hands on Bible” curriculum has been working well.

Help is needed with leading Children’s Worship. Children ages 3 – 3rd grade are dismissed after communion to enjoy a child-friendly (which mostly means loud with lots of wiggles) worship downstairs. The worship includes singing, prayer, lesson, and application via various games and simple crafts. Each worship is co-lead by a team of 2 adults. Our current curriculum focus is “Super Heroes of the Bible” with several old and new testament figures being represented in the lessons. We currently are using two books and mixing and matching games and activities to suit the age profile of the children. A typical worship involves about 10-15 children. If you would like to help with this serving opportunity, please contact Kevin Morrill.

Volunteer drivers are needed for the non-profit “Muskego Senior Taxi Service” during the week from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Please call 262-679-4754 if you are interested. Talk to Jim Nichols about the rewarding experience this service can be.

Cliff Copass is looking for someone to regularly help with the production of the Sunday morning handout every other Sunday.

We are looking for furniture and appliances for people in need.  There is a current need for a stove, refrigerator, couch and full size bed.  Please see Juan Santana if you would like to help.

The first Sunday of every month is designated as the First Sunday, First Fruits food donation program. Members are asked to bring in non-perishable food and personal items to be shared with those who have a need. Donations are accepted anytime. The food pantry is in Room 4.

Volunteers are needed to take turns in helping with the Praise and Palate.  Kitchen work involves heating, cutting (as in cakes, apples or what ever), staging the food and making a fruit mix / lemon aid drink.  Cleaning up entails clearing off & wiping down the tables, bringing leftovers to the kitchen, washing / drying dishes, clearing / cleaning the counter tops and vacuuming the fellowship hall. Additional help would lighten the load for all.  Please see Jim Nichols if you are interested.

If God is good, why does He allow suffering?  This is a very-often-asked question.  Find answers to the hardships of life in “21 Reasons Bad Things Happen to Good People” by Dave Earley.  Perhaps God is expanding your perspective of Him. . . or preparing you for greater blessing . . . or calling you to increased prayer.  With practical and personal examples, this book makes scriptural principles come alive, making them easy to remember and apply.  Find it in the Christian Life – Coping section of the library.

Library Book Review

Most of us believe in God’s grace – in theory.  But somehow, we can’t seem to apply it in our daily lives.  We continue to see Him as a small-minded bookkeeper, tallying our failures and successes on a score sheet.  Yet God gives us his grace, willingly, no matter what we’ve done.  In The Ragamuffin Gospel, Brennan Manning talks about how we come to God at ragamuffins – dirty, bedraggled, and beat-up.  And when we sit at His feet, He smiles upon us, the chosen objects of His “furious love.”  Find this book in the Theology / Doctrine section.

Information

We have an attended nursery for small children during morning worship periods in room 2.  We also have a training room at the rear of the auditorium where parents can stay with their little ones while worshiping.

A children’s worship is scheduled to begin near the start of the worship lesson time.  Children’s Worship is intended to provide a time of worship for children age 3 thru Grade 3 and to encourage families with children.

Free CD’s of the Sunday morning sermons are available from Joel Ribar.  Be sure to specify the date desired.  MP3 copies of sermons are also available at the church web site.

The Library is open after classes and the worship period.  Don’t forget to return any overdue books to the library.  There is a book return box located in the entry way next to the picture board.

 

Mid-week group meetings are planned in several locations:
Ketterhagen’s home, Tuesdays, 7:00 p.m., “Believe”

Library Book Review

You’ll find power in Wonderful Names of Our Lord – power to be claimed as you call Him by each one.  From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible paints a flawless and multifaceted portrait of our Sure Foundation, Light of the World, and Alpha and Omega.  This book describes many of these names of God and each is accompanied by a Scripture reference and a brief devotion.  In our busy lives we sometimes lose our way when it comes to worship.  This book can point you in the right direction!  Find it in the Jesus Christ section.

Sometimes to cope with life, it’s best to just laugh.  Laughing can release a load of stress and brighten everyone’s day.  Barbara Johnson is another funny women’s author / speaker.  In “Living Somewhere Between Estrogen and Death,” Barbara reveals her hilarious anti-aging remedy:  She decided to age ferociously instead of gracefully.  In “Splashes of Joy in the Cesspools of Life,” she shares her positive, uplifting, therapeutic and fun approach to life.  This is a joy-giving book.  Find these and more laughs in the Christian Life – Women’s Interests section of our library.

Library Book Review

We speak of grace often, but do we understand it?  More importantly, do we truly believe in it . . . and do our lives proclaim it as powerfully as our words?  Join Philip Yancey as he discusses, “What’s So Amazing About Grace?”  “There is nothing we can do to make God love us more.  There is nothing we can do to make God love us less.”  It’s in the Theology / Doctrine section of our library.
