Tickets are $30, with discounts for children and college students. Group rates are also available. Tickets will be available at the door or online at www.theapolloclub.org.

Officially founded in the Twin Cities in 1895, but with roots extending as far back as 1887, Apollo Club is one of the nation's oldest continuously performing male choruses.

Ancient City is Subject of Concordia Prof's Book

Mark Schuler of Concordia University and a member at Jehovah Lutheran Church in St. Paul is co-author of a new book about the ancient city of Hippos in Israel, where he has excavated for years.

"Hippos (Sussita) of the Decapolis: The First Twelve Seasons of Excavations (2000-2011)," Volume I, (University of Haifa, 2013, 323 pages, $130) describes an ancient city on a low mountain overlooking the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel, the area in which Jesus began his ministry. Hippos, also called Sussita, flourished through Greek and Roman phases before finally becoming an important center for early Christianity. It was destroyed in an earthquake in about A.D. 750.

Schuler, chair of the theology department at Concordia University in St. Paul, has led teams of students and volunteers to excavate at the site. Volunteers get a discount: The book only costs them $100.

Adult Bible Class (ABClass)

Beginning Nov 2 and running through December:
GOD’S STORY – YOUR STORY

This nine- session study is a careful look at how we are called to serve and use God’s gifts to us in our lives. A look at the question: “What’s the purpose of our life?”

The study is from the Center for Stewardship of Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO. The class study and discussions will be led by various members of the Adult Bible Class.

Come and enjoy an always lively conversation about God’s word for us!

Clothing and Household Items for
Refugee Families Needed

Jehovah Lutheran Church is gathering donations of clothing and household items for Congolese refugees. Most-needed now: bedding for twin size beds; towels of all sizes; kitchen pots & pans. Always needed: good clothing and shoes; money for bus passes; and toiletries.

Jehovah Lutheran, at 1566 Thomas in St. Paul, hosts an office for CEEDS, the Center of Employment and Education Development Services, a group working with Congolese.

 Donors are welcome to leave clothing and other items in good condition in the church entry on Thomas. Tax-writeoff slips are available at the shopping cart nearby. Decades of war have created havoc in the central African nation. Some fleeing the violence are expected in St. Paul, where Congolese immigrants have an established community.

Pastor Justin, director of CEEDS, has just returned from a trip to four refugee camps in East Africa. He writes, “ I met Congolese refugees in these camps who are living in horrible conditions for over 10 years; I prayed with them and encouraged them by the Word of God (scripture), and shared meals with some.. and met officials in these countries that deal with Congolese refugees.”

There are currently three new refugee families from the Congo in the Twin Cities. The larger influx will be later due to an already high number of refugees in the Twin Cities area from other countries. Pr. Justin asks our prayers that those waiting in camps may soon find new homes.

(click photo to enlarge)

Seven young men were inducted as Eagle Scouts during an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Dec. 28, 2013, at Jehovah Lutheran Church in St. Paul:  Matthew Westpfahl, Jared Bluhm, Jacob Goodale, Connor Heck, Derek Murray, David Kolar, and Kaiden Hanan.

Only seven percent of Boy Scouts achieve Eagle Scout rank. Of these inductees, all active in scouting since age five, six attended Central Lutheran School in St. Paul. All seven received a letter of congratulations from President Obama.

The WHEREhouse
Formerly Known as theAlley-Midway

Officially starting on June 1st, theAlley-Midway became independent from its mother church in Cottage Grove. theAlley-Midway has renamed its church as The WHEREhouse, which is derived from Matthew 18:20; Jesus says “For where two or three gather as my followers, I am there among them.” The name appears to ask the question, “Where?” while all along, Jesus tells us that he is “Here."

Even though The WHEREhouse will offer weekly bible studies and worship services, much of the church's ministry will be directed to meet God's people where they are. To do this, instead of having a worship service, THE WHEREhouse once a month will "be the church" by engaging in outreach activities. In addition, the church aims to create several "Life Groups" (aka. home groups, bible study groups, etc.). To lead these efforts, the church is in the process of placing a call for an ordained LCMS pastor.

During this time of transition, The WHEREhouse will continue to look to God for direction on how it can best serve His people and its surrounding community as well as spread the Good News of His Son Jesus Christ. The WHEREhouse has been gracious of Jehovah's support over the past three years and would continue to ask Jehovah to keep The WHEREhouse in your thoughts and prayers.
