There is more than one way to deliver the message of Christ, as one Pleasant Prairie church has discovered. St. Anne Catholic Church hosts its second annual music festival Aug. 21-22 on the parish grounds at 9091 Prairie Ridge Blvd.
According to St. Anne music director and festival organizer Richard Sosa, Bella Madre — which means “Beautiful Mother” in honor of Jesus’ mother Mary — is an exciting way to reach churchgoers and non-churchgoers alike.
Like a ship, Journey Church, the Assembly of God denomination monolith with campuses in two cities, is holding course, soon to be solely under the helm of the Rev. Kevin Taylor.
Taylor had been the co-leader of the congregation along with the Rev. Dan Remus and as of Aug. 29 Taylor will hold the lead pastoral position on his own.
Kenosha Bible Church is sending 16 members of its congregation to Honduras with trunks of over-the-counter medicines and eyeglasses to help out citizens for a week.

PLEASANT PRAIRIE — When it was all over, the Rev. Joyce Rinehart was exhilaratingly tired. Longtime friends and parishioners packed Pleasant Prairie United Methodist Church the past several Sundays to pay tribute to her during her last services as the congregation’s pastor.
On May 17, the congregation commandeered the morning service, turning it into a day of celebration, followed by a retirement party.
Did you ever attend a funeral where nobody showed up? I’m guessing not, since if you had been there, it wouldn’t have been no one. It happens from time to time at our funeral home.
Sometimes it happens out at the Southeast Wisconsin Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery in Union Grove. Any veteran of active duty can be buried or interred there, and even if the deceased has no family or friends, we still hold a brief committal service.
