A week old baby named Arthur. His "plumbing" is all messed up. He has had 2 surgeries as of now and will need 3 more. He crashed on Monday but is doing somewhat better. He is at the Children's hospital in Omaha.

Poinsettias are ordered in November and    displayed in the sanctuary beginning the first Sunday of Advent (this year Nov. 29!) until Epiphany (Jan. 6).  You can buy as many plants as you wish. You can take them home the day they come in, Nov 24, or on Christmas Eve. Most people like to buy them in memory or in honor of loved ones; those tributes will be shared in an insert at the Christmas Eve service and in the January Connections

    I am inquiring about the rose window. I think it is in honor of a young woman who was a member of the church. She died when she was at the university of Iowa.

      Ellen, honestly I have no idea. I wish I did. I am in the process of going through history. Fingers crossed I will come across it. In the mean time I will be asking some of the members who have grown up in this church.

    Ellen, I talked to a few people and Polly said that the Eastman family donated it a long time ago. She could not remember the year though. 😉
