Hoyleton – July 25, 2018
By Patricia Rensing
The Hoyleton Community Club presented a check for Trinity Lutheran School from the raffle proceeds of the 50th Annual Hoyleton Hofbraufest. Most of the proceeds were generated through the Little Prince and Princess contest enabling $1,655 being donated. Angie Quick chaired the contest. Addi Pingleton, daughter of Eric and Charissa (Scrivner) Pingleton was crowned Little Princess and Gavin Suedmeyer, son of Craig and Mary Beth (Renth) Suedmeyer garnered the Little Prince rights.
Attendance was beyond expectations at the Brooke Bowman Benefit held this past Sunday. Brooke is returning home soon after receiving medical treatment in Germany. The Committee expressed appreciation to all who contributed to the benefit. Not only was the dinner delicious, many patrons successfully bid on an array of silent auction items. We continue to remember Brooke in our prayers for a successful recovery.
Kaylee Hempen, granddaughter of Marvin Miessner and the late Mildred Miessner, earned the crown for Queen at the Clinton County Fair this past Saturday. Kaylee is the daughter of Dennis and Marla (Miessner) Hempen. Kaylee entered an exemplary presentation throughout Fair week and her exquisite style and wardrobe moved her into the Queen seat.
This coming Sunday, Zion United Church of Christ will observe the 5th Sunday of July with an Alternative Style Worship at 10:00 am. Annamarie Beckmeyer and Jacob Wacker will provide contemporary style music .
Pastor Causer’s sermon is titled “We Gather to Put Jesus at the Center of Our Lives”; based on Scriptures from Ephesians 3:14-21 and John 6:1-15. The risen Christ comes among us, not simply to meet our needs but to rearrange them in order to reveal himself to us. In church we get the Christ, the one who is looking for us that he might call us, change us, transform us. All are Welcome!
