Bible Reading Marathon this Wednesday night!

A neat thing is taking place this Wednesday evening, June 27th, on the courthouse lawn! This is to remind you we're going to try to read through the whole Bible in a couple of hours 7:14-9:14 pm. That means we want a whole lot of people to show up at the courthouse around 7 pm to get organized. Individuals will take a slip of paper that tells what chapters in the Bible they will read. We pray this will be enjoyable and you will be blessed in reading!  You can do it with a group, but we will need a lot of people reading individually to get through the whole Bible in a couple of hours.

We have been reading through the Bible on the courthouse lawn the last couple of years, and it has been a moving experience! Bring your friends and join us!

Any questions you can email me (Janelle Pratt) or call Pastor Mitch Grossoehme at 712-542-4362

Enclosed is the Governor's Proclamation if you would like to read it!

Join With World Partners in Peru!

Your $100 Will Impact Peru
If ten minutes of prayer and a gift of $100 would result in hundreds coming to Christ in a country with a history of gang and drug activity would you do it?

For years the Shining Pat, the Communist Party in Peru, held much of this South American country hostage through terrorist activity and civil war. Today, the Shining Path has been weakened, but it is still in existence and the continuing source of drug related activity and gang violence.

This month a team of four World Partners leaders traveled to Peru to bless and affirm two of our newest missionaries, Joshua and Missy Saune, in their ministry in Peru. Joshua is Peruvian and Missy is Native American. We are excited about the Kingdom results that can come from a trip like this! It is our prayer that we will see Gospel fires lit throughout Peru.

While the team was in Peru they met with over fifty leaders from two different people groups. They represent over 2,000 people. These leaders gave us an enthusiastic welcome and discussed with us the future ministry among their people and how we can partner. The door is now wide open for our involvement. We are excited about the Kingdom results that will come from this future ministry. It is our prayer that we will see the gospel fires lit throughout Peru.

But we need your help. Your prayers and financial support are essential. For us to take the next steps in Peru we anticipate the cost to be $10,000. This will help cover the costs of travel, training, and community development. If 100 people each give $100 and 100 people offer to pray, I believe we will see exciting things take place in Peru that will honor God and bring glory to His name.

Will you be one of the 100 who give $100? Maybe you could even give more than that? Will you be one of the 100 who will pray?

Whatever the case, and no matter how much you give, your contribution and prayers are key to seizing this opportunity.

You can give via the World Partners website,, or you could send in a check to World Partners and in the memo line write Peru Project.

Thank you for considering this. I sincerely hope you will be able to help.

Call to Prayer & Fasting

On June 12, President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are scheduled to meet in Singapore for an historic summit aimed at curbing North Korea's nuclear weapons program. This could be one of the most important summits in modern history.

Christians inside and outside of Korea fasted and prayed prior to the meeting between Kim Jong Un of North Korea and Moon Jae In of South Korea. Many have hailed that historic meeting as an answer to prayer

What might God do at this summit if the body of Christ united in prayer for God to work in the hearts of these world leaders?

In anticipation of this summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un, we are urging Missionary Churches to set aside Monday, June 11, as a day of fasting and prayer – praying for God to work in the hearts and minds of these men that would result in peace.

OPEN DOORS USA has put together some really good information on prayer and fasting as well as 15 prayers to pray for this summit. We urge you to follow the link below and join with millions of others in praying for this historic summit.
