Church name: Wilmot United Methodist Church
There is a new pastor at Holy Nativity Lutheran Church, but neither he nor his wife are strangers to the area.
The Rev. James Lynch was recently assigned to the small Evangelical Lutheran Church, but he also serves as the pastor of St. John Lutheran in Kenosha.
A small mountain of paperwork.
Yes, now that I have passed my National Board Exams for funeral service, all that stands between me and my new career is the ton of paperwork that I put off while I was going to school. And there is another small mountain of paperwork that contains all the things that I needed to learn for that exam that I will NEVER use again.
Formed as an offshoot of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 6609 26th Ave., is proudly celebrating its centennial this year.
Its origins date back to 1915 as a mission church designed to accommodate the unserved parishioners who lived a bit too far to attend St. Matthew’s downtown location. Despite the two parishes being only a mile or so apart, it was a much more imposing distance in 1914-15 than it is today, according to the Rev. Gari Green, priest of St. Andrew’s.
When the Rev. Matthew Buterbaugh celebrates the Liturgy at the two morning services on Sunday, Sept. 20, he will be doing so in the tradition of the priests and faithful of long ago.
He will be dressed in 1840 period vestments, use Anglican rites of worship from the 1789 Prayer Book and use the church’s 19th century altar that was used by Bishop Jackson Kemper.
At sunset on Sunday, Sept. 13, Jews the world over will inaugurate the holiest and most festive season of the Jewish year.
The season begins with the Ten Days of Repentance, days devoted to self-examination, repentance and prayers for peace and well being for the world.
The “eight-in-the-box defense” is a football term known to those deeply ingrained in football strategy.
But sometimes you have to think out of the box when it comes to raising funds for a church ministry, as those at Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Kenosha have discovered.
