Pastor Barbara Dierker of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Runge based her sermon “God’s Faithful People” on the parable of the wheat and the weeds in Matthew 13. In the gospel Jesus tells a parable about the co-existence of good and evil in this world. God’s judgment will remove all evildoers and causes of sin, but not until the end of human history. Both wheat (beliervers) and weeds (unbelievers) will have eternal life and the ultimate destination for the wheat will be Heaven and for the weeds will be Hell. Jesus tells about the final judgment in Matthew 25:31-46. As Christians we are to be bold and tell the good news to those who have not heard it and share our faith with the weeds (those who do not know Christ) and make disciples of all nations.

It was fantastic last week with so many children attending A Big Jungle Adventure vacation Bible School. The children heard Bible stories about Baby Moses, the crossing of the Red Sea by God’s chosen people,. the Sermon on the Mount, the Resurrection, and Heaven. They memorized Bible verses, sang songs, made crafts, ate snacks, and played games all related to the theme for the day. The offerings for the week will be sent to Lutheran World Relief for the African Malaria Initiative.
