FOR OUR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN: If your little one needs to “get up and move” a little during the service, we have a live video feed of the service in the fellowship hall so that you can still hear the service.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL during the month of December will be led by Roger & Geri Sommerlot focusing on the hymns of Christmas.
“DET GĴORDE GUD” (That’s What God Did) is the theme of our Thanksgiving Eve Service. We will be looking back not only on the past year but on 125 years of God working in & through our church and giving Him ALL the glory. We’d like you to recall all that God has done in your life or in your family’s life and then share through a short video or a few written sentences. You can send these to Jill Wester Kischer by FB message, text message at 712-299-4688, or email at kkischer@evertek.net. We will also have a video booth set up in Pastor Stepec’s office on Sundays. Please forward this on to family or friends who have moved away. It would be wonderful to hear from people who grew up here or attended ACEFC. Also, please make them short! Thanks.
We are so THANKFUL for the many prayers, visits, calls, texts and cards Terry and I received while at Mercy hospital. We are so appreciative of the offering that was taken for us. Jessica, Megan and Sarah are so thankful for the beautiful flowers and delicious food they received while we were away from them. Thanks so much for the beautiful prayer Pastor Jesse and Joel Ehlers gave before Terry went into surgery. We are so blessed to belong to a loving church family. The Sump family
THANK YOU for remembering us with your love and sympathies with the passing of Don. The out pour of our church family was a blessing to all of us. Thank you for all of your prayers and the beautiful plant. Chris and Stephanie Archer
