            I encourage each of you to come to both our worship services on a regular basis and concerts.  At our worship services we will continue to treat everyone to new pieces both during the prelude and the postlude. We also will be learning several new hymns each quarter ( They may be old familiar hymns to you ) as well as looking at new items for our liturgy.  At the concerts you will be treated to a variety of music spanning many centuries and many countries.

            Listening to and participating in music is not only relaxing but also helps you to grow in mind and spirit so come on out and enjoy !

 

We would like to thank

Pipe Organ
The original pipe organ was installed in 1922.
The following is the stop list as of August 2009Photo Gallery
                               The instrument was manufactured by the Moller organ company. The organ was a eight rank instrument based on the style of the time. In 1956 the church decided to do many major projects which included expanding the pipe organ.  Fred Weickhardt was the local representative for the Reuter organ company who the church council contracted to expand the organ. The expansion included adding a second pipe chamber, rebuilding the console and adding six additional ranks of pipes. 
 
                               This organ was used in this fashion untill in 1999 when the church again contacted Reuter to get more work done.  Since 1999 the swell reservoir has been releathered, the swell shades in the swell division have been re-leathered, a new blower was installed, the 8' Trumpet rank was removed; sent out for revoicing and re-installed, many wind leaks were corrected, a new 4' Principal stop was added to the swell, as well as other issues being addressed.
 
                                 In January 2009 we added an 8' Aeolian Skinner  Principal to the great division and also removed, re-leathered and re-installed the great reservoir.  In late 2009 the hope is to add a Peterson Relay/switch to the Great division which will allow the addition of a Gemshorn, 2' Octave and 3 rank Mixture.
                                 Stop in ANY Sunday by or before 9 am and listen to 20-35 minutes of organ music / prelude played on this fine instrument.

Are you stealing from God? by animal

 

January 26/27
Stop Robbing the Body of Christ
1 Corinthians 12:14-21
Every day, you get out of bed, put on clothes, and walk to the table to eat breakfast. You greet the rest of the household and maybe read the paper. A few minutes later, you drive to work at 60 m.p.h. on a strip of asphalt where other vehicles can pass by within four feet. In the first hour or so that you’re awake, your body completes thousands of complex tasks that are so routine they go unnoticed.
Our physical frame is a creation of remarkable beauty and intricacy. And while certain parts seem more attractive than others, all are useful. The body’s interdependent nature—that is, the way every part relies on other parts to perform properly—is an apt metaphor for a Christ-centered church. When believers use their gifts and talents to operate together lovingly, the whole body functions properly to the glory of God.

However, churches today are filled with people who feel insignificant. Upon seeing the successful work of others, they decide they’re not really needed or assume they haven’t got the “right” talents to make a worthwhile contribution. Those are lies from the Devil. When his misguidance succeeds—which is all too often—he manages to get one more Christian to back away in hopes that someone else will do the Lord’s work.
Hanging back instead of seeking a place to serve is a form of thievery: you’re robbing the Lord’s church—His people—of your unique contribution. Your role might be small or go unnoticed, but it is vital to Jesus Christ and to the smooth functioning of His body on earth.

3 Things to Give to God by animal

 

The 3 Things We Can Give to God This Year
As we enter into a new year, here is something to remember: When it’s all said and done, we have three things we can offer God—our treasure, our talent, and our time. Each of these is given to us by God, and each of them should be given back in generous portions.
First, there is our treasure. I urge you to commit yourself to give faithfully and generously to the Lord in this coming year. Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:21 NKJV). Whenever we put our money into something, we develop a vested interest in it. It makes sense to us that we would place our treasures where our hearts are. If we love reading books, or being entertained, or the latest technology, we spend our treasure on those things. And if our heart’s desires change, that changes where we put our treasure.
But it works the other way too: Where we put our treasures, our heart will follow. Do you want your heart to be in the things of God? Then put your treasures in the things of God! Develop a vested interest in God’s kingdom.
The second thing we can give to God is our talent. God has gifted each believer in different ways. Everyone has something to offer for the work of the kingdom. Romans 12 says, “Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are all parts of his one body, and each of us different work to do” (NLT).
Finally, there is our time. Let’s say that one day your phone rang and it was the president of the bank that you use. He told you that an anonymous donor who loved you very much had decided to deposit 86,400 pennies into your bank account each and every morning. At first, maybe that didn’t seem like a lot. But then you figured out that it was $864 a day. At seven days a week and 52 weeks a year, those pennies add up to almost $315,000 each year! But the bank president added one thing: “The anonymous giver said you must spend all of the money on the day you receive it! No balance will be carried over to the next day. Each evening the bank must cancel whatever sum you failed to use! Remember, what you don’t spend is lost.”




That may sound like fantasy, but here’s the reality: Every morning, Someone who loves you very much deposits into your “bank of time” 86,400 seconds, which represent 1,440 minutes, which of course equals 24 hours each and every day. God gives you that much to use each day. Nothing is ever carried over on credit to the next day. There is no such thing as a 27-hour day. It’s called time, and you can’t escape it. Time is ticking away right now. The Bible tells us to “redeem the time”—to make sacred and wise use of every opportunity.
Offer God your treasure, your talent, and your time. Live this next year as if it were your last, because it could be. Make those minutes count!

The Organ by animal

Pastor Jacobsen found this quote and I thought it was worth sharing!

 

This is a quote from Honore de Balzac (1799-1850)

 

"The Organ is in truth the grandest, the most daring, the most magnificent of all instruments invented by human genius.  It is a whole orchestra in itself.  It can express anything in response to a skilled touch.  Surely it is in some sort a pedestal on which the soul poises for a flight forth into space, essaying on her course to draw picture after picture in an endless series, to paint human life, to cross the Infinite that separates heaven from earth?  And the longer a dreamer listens to those giant harmonies, the better he realizes that nothing save this hundred-voiced choir on earth can fill all the space between kneeling men and a God hidden by the blinding light of the sanctuary.  The music is the one interpreter strong enough to bear up the prayers of humanity to heaven, prayer in its omnipotent moods, prayer tinged by the melancholy of many different natures, colored by meditative ecstasy, upspringing with the impulse of repentance--blended with the myriad fancies of every creed.  Yes.  In those long vaulted aisles the melodies inspired by the sense of things divine are blent with a grandeur unknown before, are decked with new glory and might.  Out of the dim daylight, and the deep silence broken by the chanting of the choir in response to the thunder of the Organ, a veil is woven for God, and the brightness of His attributes shines through it."

from The Art of Organ Building by George Audsley

Organ issues - Updated by JimS

We suffered a failure of some leather components that were installed about 55 years ago. Because of this the pipe organ is temporarily not working. We are confident that the funds will be found to repair this and restore the wonderful sounds of our historic Moller organ to our Sunday service.
