Answered Prayers

It was a beautiful Sunday morning; we went to church and heard a wonderful message, can home and started to read the paper when my husband noticed one of our dogs licking her paw passionately. So we stopped everything to investigate. Long story short, I ended up taking her to the emergency animal hospital nearby. I began praying while...

Be Still

--by Louise Meyer-- Yesterday we picked up our grand dog Max (an 84 pound puppy) from 2 weeks of Puppy training. The trainer Sonny, told us that Max is anxious about everything and what he needs most is to be taught to be still and quiet. When that happens, he will be happy and obedient. Today I am sitting here feeling anxious about everything. I should be

Pray About Everything

--by Trudy Zarling-- Praise God the HY T and Green Bay Rd. intersection is now open. For two months we’ve been doubling our time to get to Christ Church by traveling through Cedarburg. A few days ago I complained about the inconvenience. My friend replied she just drives through the subdivision. She thought the access street is High Noll. Sure enough

Our Faith Journey

One of my favorite chapters in the entire Bible is Hebrews 11. I refer to it as the “faith chapter.” Paul gives us what I believe is one of the greatest challenges that we as Christians have as followers of Christ. It is the call to believe in something we have not yet seen. As we look forward to the upcoming year here at Christ Church, we will be called on to “have faith” as...

God Is On The Move!

--by Chris Lear-- The missional church, one that is committed to living out God’s calling, provides many opportunities to see God at work through us, Christ Church. Serving on the Mission Support Team, I am blessed to see monthly reminders of this dynamic of Christ. We regularly see the power of the Holy Spirit active and alive in our many ministries.

Extending God's Care

--by Trudy Zarling-- On Thursday I was searching for Bible verses to include in my valentines, a promise to pray over each loved one in the coming year. I found Psalm 73: 23-26. I thought this would be good for someone who has cancer and marked it with my crocheted cross. Friday Ann asked me to pray for her friend Diane from church who has

Sunday Mornings

There are so many things that I look forward to on Sunday mornings. Yes, listening to Pastor’s message is high on the list, but seeing all those baby’s as mother’s/ father’s go up to communion. Those tiny miracles of life as each of us are, justputs a smile across my face. Oh my, then they get baptized and we get to witness God’s creation of His kingdom growing. What a

Being Open to God's Leading

--by Trudy Zarling-- I knew the first Walk About Grafton walk was at 9:00 a.m.; I’d see how my morning went and then decide whether to go. During breakfast I thought perhaps God could use me in conversation with a fellow participant.

Go West

--by Trudy Zarling-- My day could have ended tragically but for the grace of God. I had waited for traffic before making a left turn from Freistadt Road onto Main Street in Thiensville until I could see no cars coming from straight ahead or the right turn lane. I started to make my turn when immediately two children on bikes were 3 ft. from my front bumper. I saw their horrified

Will A Man Rob God?

--by Chris Lear-- The power of a “good word”, the testimony of a fellow believer is a tool God wants us to employ as often as possible. At times when we are especially receptive to what God is telling us, we see and hear “God moments” in the actions of fellow Christians. Our work together is encouraging.

God's Messenger

--by Kaye Dries-- I went to have my hair cut on senior day. While cutting my hair the stylist I got began talking about her sons at a Lutheran Church in Grafton whom she has sent on two mission trips each. I told her about Mexico and gave her my phone number. The next day she called me and asked to come and see me. Long story short we talked for over an hour

Yours

--by Greg Johnson-- I like how Day 1 of Rick Warren’s “Purpose Driven Life” starts. Let’s say it together, “It’s not about you.” Everything in this world is God’s. Everything. It’s all yours, God. This means every single person we meet is made in the image of God. They just might not realize it yet. And there is the possibility of that person getting to know

The Breath of God

--by Sandi Chowaniak-- One of my favorite things to teach my children is that His very breath has power beyond what is understandable. In Genesis we are told that the earth was formless and void, and “then God said, ‘Let there be light.’” By the word of His mouth, creation began. He spoke and stars flew into being. He called out, “Let there be” on various

Grace Guy

--by Greg Johnson-- I am a grace guy. I recognize that each day I fall short, and I am in dire need of God’s infinite and amazing grace. And I have to admit that there are times when I can’t fathom why God would forgive my past, present AND future sins. I can’t really comprehend it because the picture is still quite dim. But there’s something about his infinite love that cleanses me of my sin. Wow!

So I Will Comfort You

--by Louise Meyer-- The night of our son Paul’s death, as I was being driven to the hospital, I had a vision.  There in the arms of Jesus, Paul and I were being cradled.  I remember it as if it were yesterday, the complete feeling of peace, love, and comfort.  Years later when attending a weekly children’s group at my church, I opened up a picture book,

God Provides

--by Trudy Zarling-- After hours of sorting my orchestra sheet music, putting each piece into a sheet protector, and arranging them in alphabetical order by composer, I finally divided them into 3 folders from my mother’s filing cabinet. They were labeled “household”, “insurance”, and “taxes”.  The backside of the labels had already been used.

Sowing Bountifully

--by Karen Hassman-- Our family had the opportunity a few years ago to serve regularly with an organization that packs bags of clothing and toys for children desperately in need of them. Because every bag included a book sharing the Gospel of Jesus, these children also received a reminder that there is a Savior who cares for their needs.
