For October and November, the featured section from the Lehr Library collection will be books of meditation and prayer. Some relate specifically to the Bible or events in the church year while others are more general in nature. The great thing about these books is they offer hope and inspiration and who doesn’t need those in these troubled times! Plus you don’t have to read the whole book to get the point. The checkout sheet and return box are located on the library cart in the narthex. Plus don’t forget that the bookcase in the narthex under Pastor Vic’s picture is a revolving library—bring any books you wish to donate, take as many as you wish, no need to check out anything. These books cover a variety of topics not necessarily related to church life (cookbooks, murder mysteries, westerns, etc.)
Music at Immanuel Village
Every month Augustana members join residents in the community room at Immanuel Village in singing hymns and folksongs, and hearing lovely pieces played by instrumentalists. We visit on the first Saturday of each month between 6 and 7 pm to "make a joyful noise unto the Lord." Always a good time, and the next occasion is this week on Saturday, December 2. Join us if you can and let Chuck or Gloria Austerberry (402-455-7751) know you are coming so we can open the door for you!
Looking for a respite in the midst of the busy Christmas season? Join us for Dinner Church on December 6, 13 and 20th. These Advent-themed worships with dinner woven throughout will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Lehr Library.
Thursday afternoon, July 23rd, we met our refugee family at the airport and accompanied them to their new home. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers as they face the many challenges and adjustments to their new lives.
