Pray, Praise and Give Thanks!
We are quickly moving into the holiday season and there will be many opportunities to do just that! The beautiful hymns of praise and thanksgiving from our final 175th Anniversary Service still linger in my head. It is such a blessing to belong to David’s Star where His precious Word is taught! God has blessed us mightily over the years!
Last week 11 members of David’s Star traveled to the beautiful Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake for the Annual OWLS Convention to worship, serve and fellowship with about 200 other WELS seniors from all over the country. We worshipped together with the Winnebago Lutheran High School Choir, blessing us with their beautiful voices! We toured the world famous Road America Race Track or the Wade House historical site, heard a variety of speakers and attended breakout sessions learning a variety of things! It was announced that the various OWLS Chapters and individuals gathered and donated upwards of $52,000 toward the European Civilian Chaplaincy this year! It is our privilege to support that ministry and we thank the members of David’s Star who participated in that!
I would like to encourage all of our seniors to join the local David’s Star OWLS Chapter! God has plans for us that are good! We may be running a bit slower during these last few laps of our race here on this earth but there is still much work that we can do. We serve the Lord locally with projects here at church or nationally through the European Civilian Chaplaincy. And along the way, we encourage and enjoy one another!
Let us pray, praise and give thanks!
Your sister in Christ,
