Obria Medical Clinic, our Ames prolife clinic formerly called Informed Choices, is in need of volunteers to work the front desk.  Please contact Rhonda at or call the clinic directly at 515-620-5892.  

This Week’s Sermon –   John Shields will preach on “Minor Prophets: Turn and Live. Call on the Lord.” When we think of judgment, we may think of criminals receiving judgement for crimes or we may think of others unfairly judging us for our choices, but what if we were to be immediately and fairly judged for our actions toward God and others? What sort of judgement would we receive? The prophet Joel warns of a Day of the Lord, a day of judgement coming for all, and Joel helps us understand how we should ready ourselves and others for this coming day.

Weekly Memory Verse – “And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Joel 2:32a
