Willie Wickel Obituary

Willie Wickel with family

The son of our Praise Team leaders passed away suddenly this week.  Willie Wickel, son of Jerry and Jolene Wickel, is remembered fondly by many.  A number of people have asked that we post information about his funeral and visitation on our web site and social media.

Here is the link to the obituary as provided by the funeral home:  click link

December 29 at Worship

At worship on December 29 there will be two special elements.

1)  Our Praise Team will lead our music. 

2)  We will receive our noisy offering.  The “Noisy Offering” is an offering received by the children of the congregation in metal coffee cans. When people drop their coins (and bills and checks) into the cans, it is noisy. This will be the final noisy offering of 2013.  This year our noisy offering has been directed to the Lutheran Seminary Program of the Southwest in Austin.  This school trains pastors and other leaders for the church. 


As always, remember our regular worship and education schedule. 

Sunday Worship at 9:00 a.m.; Sunday School at 10:10 a.m.

Saturday Worship on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays at 6 p.m. (for example, December 28, January 11 & 25, etc.)
