  • Evergreen Outreach

    By Joyce Mueller
    A few enjoyable hours are always reserved for everyone attending the Monday programs at Evergreen Outreach. One can visit, learn and have a good time listening to special entertainment.
    This week, we had a Halloween afternoon program at Fayette County Hospital's Long Term Care facility.
    Pianist Betty Stolte opened the program with a variety of selections, which included, “The Lighthouse,” “Mansion on the Hill,” “Born Again” and “Dwelling In Beulah Land.”

    October, the transition month, heralds many special things and events.
    Pumpkins have appeared; apples are in abundance; leaves are flying in a downward dance; Halloween is approaching; and, of course, the World Series games are in full force.
    It is a wonderful time to enjoy the activities of Evergreen Outreach, and you would discover that you are having a great time each Monday afternoon.

  • How will you be remembered? Still time to change!

    A good pastor friend of mine brought the following story to my attention:
    It is said that one morning in 1888, Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite, picked up a paper and read an account of his death.

  • See You at the Pole

    Several students, faculty and community residents participated in the recent "See You at the Pole" activity at Vandalia Community High School.

    Phyllis Rames welcomed each guest at Monday’s Evergreen Outreach, which was held this week at Fayette County Hospital Long Term Care. The numbers were down because it was Columbus Day.
    Rames called Erna Wasmuth to the microphone, and others joined with her to sing “Jesus Loves Me.”
    Stacey Kistler gave a devotional using “The Word for You Today.” This book is a WJLY radio station devotional for daily reading. Kistler used the Oct. 9 devotion called “Change Can Happen to You.”

  • 'Customized' Christianity isn't biblical Christianity

    There it was – the headline caught my attention – and begged for my audience: “More Americans customize religion to fit their personal needs.” This headline was on the second page of the USA Today newspaper, dated Sept. 13, 2011.
    I read every line with great interest.
