Sunday December 28 - Aglow at the Prison and Update

This month, our Aglow group will share the Louie Giglio video, "How Great is Our God", which is a moving and inspiring discussion of the universe and our (very small) place in it. Here's a link for part of the video .

When we called the distributor for permission to present it at the prison, they were extremely gracious and indicated that we could show it wherever we want, whenever we want, with only the caveat that we not make copies of it (as of course we would never do). Our team members from River Center Church in Pierre will lead us in worship before and after the video.

Pierre Prison Aglow has several new members - Betty Winkler, who will be eligible to join us this month, as well as Sunny Holloway and Joel Pfeifle whose paperwork was not filed in time for this month's event.

Pierre Aglow is coming alongside a group to plan a First Nations retreat, to be held March 6-7 at New Life Assembly, 1120 N. Harrison, Pierre, SD 57501. The event will be open to all, an opportunity to value and celebrate our fellow believers who preceded us in loving this land. Information will be posted, emailed, and mailed soon. Please email if you'd like to be added to the mailing or email lists.

Sharing with Carla Reed, Tuesday, December 9, 7 pm;1917 Flag Mountain Drive, Pierre

Carla is completing her journey to and from the East Coast and has many stories to share concerning God’s grace and direction.

She will be in Pierre Tuesday evening, December 9. We’ll meet at 7 pm, at 1917 Flag Mountain Drive, Pierre, SD (DeAnn and Merlyn Hilmoe’s home).

Please plan to attend and invite anyone the Lord puts on your heart.

Here is an excerpt from her 11-11 email:

"I am lingering on the east coast to be able to spend Thanksgiving with my handsome young soldier son, Josh. He is based at Ft Bragg, NC, and it will be a joy to have several days with him before I begin my drive back to Washington. Enroute I’ll stop in Anderson, IN where my daughter and family just moved and in Sioux Falls, SD to see my oldest son and family. My mom now lives in Neligh, NE, so I’ll make a stop there as well and hope to see other family in the area. It’s one of the perks of travel to see family as most of them are not able to travel very far with young children,school obligations, and jobs. Thank you so much for your prayer cover and your kind words of encouragement and strength.

Today, I have been ‘on the road again’ for 8 weeks and am feeling the effects of much travel. I have already come 8,000 miles in 8 weeks. Were it not for my being able to spend Thanksgiving with my son, I would be heading home. It was a month ago today, October 10-11 that I stepped into the waters of the far northeast corner of America at Eastport, ME. I am still in awe of that Divine moment and the wonder of the beauty of the northeast ablaze with color. As I’ve been on the east coast, I’ve enjoyed several weeks of colorful changes and varieties of foliage. You can access some blog newsletters on my website: if you want to catch up or refer others."
