Living, Gert Krosschell who resides at Edgebrook Apartments and Geneva Peters who resides at the Pipestone Good Samaritan Care Facilityy.
Memory Verses: For our evening services, we are reading one Lord's Day of the Heidelberg Catechism each week. In our bulletin each
week, we will list a memory verse that corresponds to one of those questions and answers. We encourage you to memorize these passages
with your family for that week. In Pastor John Piper's article "Why Memorize Scripture?" (placed in your mailboxes), he gives several reasons
why memorizing Scripture is so essential to the Christian life: conformity to Christ, daily triumph over sin, daily triumph over Satan, comfort
and counsel for people you love, communicating the gospel to unbelievers, and communion with God in the enjoyment of his person and ways.
Will you join us in this challenge for 2018?
