Hoyleton – June 27, 2018
By Patricia Rensing
July 1, Zion UCC will celebrate Holy Communion at the 10:00 am. Worship Service. The theme is “Healing Powers” and based on Scriptures from 2 Samuel 1:1, 17-27, Psalm 130 and Mark 5:21-43. Minette Cramer is the Pianist.
We thank Lynn and Dori Cazier for telling and showing us about their Missionary work Kenya, Africa last Sunday (see accompanying photo). They have served with the Community Christian Church in Kenya in partnership with Christian Missionary Fellowship International (CMFI) since 2003.
They had a display of hand made Africian tribal worship instruments and beaded items. Dori is the former Doris Beckmeyer from Friedens UCC in Irvington and Lynn is originally from Decatur, Il. Dori served on Summer Staff at DuBois Center in the 1980’s.
Lynn and Dori are on furlough and speaking at churches this summer about their Kenya Mission work . Zion is still collecting plastic container caps and also bags of individually wrapped candy for Zion’s entry in the Hofbraufest Parade on July 7.
The Hoyleton Community Club is requesting donations of desserts for the dinners being served in the building Saturday, July 7 and Sunday July 8. Please bring your baked goods into the large room on either date. An added feature to the 5K Run/Walk will be the Senior Stroll. This event will depart from the gazebo area at 10 a.m. Many of our pioneers, who were instrumental in the infancy of the Hofbraufest, will take a stroll (or golf cart ride) through a shortened marked path. For more information, please contact Deb Holle 618-780-0357.
As previously reported, the Hoyleton Legion made a donation to the Community Club prior to disbanding. The funds have been used to create a beautiful wall plaque honoring our area Veteran’s.
The Hofbraufest is featuring a presentation of this plaque at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 6 at the Veteran’s Memorial to Mike Stock, President of the Club. The interior wall on the south hall will serve as its home, as well as other memorabilia honoring those who served. The Nashville American Legion will present the colors at this event.
