New this week – June 2, 2019

VERSE OF THE MONTH

This year’s Spiritual Growth Plan focuses on prayer. Ponder a verse and a comment on the blessing of prayer from your Spiritual Growth Committee: Ephesians 6:18 “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”  Let us approach God with all our needs and concerns, big or small. And may we always pray for one another, perhaps especially this month pray for our new Confirmands, that they will remain steadfast in their Spirit-given faith.

KML National Honor Society Bible Fundraiser Thank You

Thank you to everyone who donated the funds to give Bibles to children in Milwaukee. The KML Federation responded with loving hearts when our members reached out to congregations. Kettle Moraine Lutheran’s NHS, along with Chaplains in Schools, brought 1,302 Bibles to three Milwaukee urban schools. Because of your generosity, we were able to surpass our goal of 750 bibles and bring the joy of Jesus to these young children.
