A Word from Rev. Renae
When I was young, I often wondered what it would have been like if Jesus came to my hometown and called up disciples like the 12 were called. Would a couple of the Hafer kids been called? What about the Gaines twins? Maybe Jesus would have gone to the country and called out to the Aschermann’s or Yoder’s? Would I have been on the list?
Our call may not look exactly like the original twelve disciples, but we have received a call from Jesus. This Sunday we will look at the “Model of Ministry” Jesus gave the disciples. They were sent out ready to share the good news and make disciples. Are we ready to go too?

Blessings,
Rev. Renae
