Library Book Review

God’s greatest desire is to be your dwelling place – the home for your heart.  In “The Great House of God,” Max Lucado tells us that God doesn’t want to be merely a weekend getaway, Sunday bungalow or even a summer cottage.  He wants to be your mailing address, your point of reference, your home . . . always.  He wants you to live in the Great House of God.  Using the Lord’s Prayer as a floor plan, Max Lucado takes you on a tour of the home God intended for you.  The roof never leaks, the walls never crack, the foundation never trembles.  Come home.  Your Father is waiting.  Find it in the Christian Life section.

Library Book Review

The book of Proverbs.  On first glance, it appears to be a disorganized array of advice for all of us.  Why, there’s even a list of verses cautioning against becoming a full-time, card-carrying fool.  It does offer practical wisdom right where we live, but how can we make sense of all the disjointed pieces?  In “Kaleidoscope”, Patsy Clairmont uses her insightful brand of humor to sift through the gems of Scripture’s more diverse book, hold them up to the light and find inspiring reflections of the divine that bring clarity to our world.  Check it out in the Christian Life section.

Information

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.

Opportunities

Toni Bully has a request:  She starts her summer job the week of June 11 and she needs rides to and from work until she gets paid in two weeks.

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.

Library Book Review

“Waiting presents an enormous challenge.  We are impatient, I-can-fix-it kinds of people.  Yet if we can welcome waiting as a spiritual discipline, waiting will present its spiritual gifts.”  Check our “The Seven Spiritual Gifts of Waiting,” by Holly Whitecomb, if you’d like to explore Patience, Loss of Control, Living in the Present, Compassion, Gratitude, Humility and Trust in God.  Look for this book in the Spiritual Life section.

Opportunities

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

Help is needed with leading Children’s Worship.  Several children ages 3 – 3rd grade are dismissed after communion to enjoy a child-friendly 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.  If you would like to help with this serving opportunity or learn more about it, please contact Kevin Morrill.

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 worshipping.

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.  Everyone is asked to begin worship in the auditorium (adults and children).  Parents should accompany their smaller children to the basement as well as children who have not attended before.  Before you return upstairs, be sure to indicate to the people at the door if you would prefer us to keep your young person till you return to get them or if it is alright to let them go after the adult worship is dismissed.

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.

There is great controversy among Christians today regarding manhood and womanhood in Christian practice and in society.  “Man & Woman in Christian Perspective” by Werner Neuer answers the hard questions.  Are the roles of men and women interchangeable?  Are Biblical principles relevant to modern times?  How are they to be applied to church and family?  This study provides stimulating discussion of these important issues.  Find it in the Christian Life – Social Issues section.

Library Book Review

Hope for the Separated – Wounded Marriages Can Be Healed,” by Gary Chapman speaks to marriages that are in a very hard place.  Yet Gary says, “Separation places you in an arena in which you can develop a new understanding of yourself and your spouse.  Separation is not necessarily the beginning of the end.  It may be only the beginning!”  If you’re separated, you may not feel like reconciling.  But through small, simple steps, Dr. Chapman shows that you may be able to achieve reconciliation with your mate.  Assignments are given to encourage growth both as individuals and as a couple.  Find it in the Family Life Section.

Library Book Review

The times are urgent, God is on the move, now is the moment to . . . ask God to ignite His fire in your soul!  Jim Cymbala believes that Jesus wants nothing more than to renew and revive his people – to call us back from spiritual dead ends that lead only to apathy and lukewarm religion.  In his book, “Fresh Wind – Fresh Fire,” he tells the story of what has happened to a broken-down church in one of America’s meanest neighborhoods and how it points the way to new spiritual vitality in the church and in your own life.  See what God can do when a handful of people humble themselves and take the Gospel seriously.  In the Prayer section.
