Weary Joy-The Caregivers Journey

by Kim Marxhausen

Written for caregivers and as a resource to pass to those caring for their loved ones, read about the burden that seems to come from helping those with dementia and how to overcome them. Included in the short chapters are prayers that encourage while offering hope and a few laughs. Weary Joy is meant to show reader’s God’s grace and Jesus’ care while discovering helpful hints on resilience and endurance to navigate the challenging world of caregiving.

Enough for Now


Enough for Now. Unpacking God’s Sufficiency will begin September 11 from 9:30 to 11:00 in the Concordia Room. We’ll explore how our desire for enough can drive us to God instead of propelling us toward more money, more stuff, more activity. By looking at Jesus’ parable of the rich fool, we’ll explore what God says about having enough. Through Scripture passages, study questions, reflection, prayer, and life application, we’ll learn that we can find security and joy only in God, who is sufficient for every imaginable need. Reserve your study guide by contacting Marlene Maxfield (314) 846-3880.

TOP 40 BIBLE CLASS! What are the top 40 Bible accounts that every Christian should know? Beginning Sunday, August 25, join Pastor Clark on Sunday mornings in the Fellowship Hall as we take a closer look at 40 key accounts from Genesis to Revelation. The study will coincide with what our Sunday school children are learning so our congregation will be on the same page and conversations about God’s Word can continue at home. This is a great opportunity for people who may have never attended a Bible class in the past. All are welcome!

Grounded in God’s Word: Commentaries on Life

God’s Word gives life. God’s Word concerns life. God’s Word of life reveals what He has done, how every human life has value and dignity, and how everything God created was for the sake of His children—for us! We cannot consider this without awe. The fallen, broken world, however, does not acknowledge this. It promotes instead the self above all, champions an “anything goes” theology, and brings hurt and confusion. Bad things happen. People are deceived. Lives are destroyed. Collected here are easy-to-read commentaries concerning topics such as moral worth, abortion, evolution, suffering, life and death decisions, biblical manhood and womanhood, and other sanctity of life issues. Grounded in Scripture, these relevant essays explore what is revealed in God’s Word and discuss a wide array of topics pertaining to human life, God’s grace, and His perfect love for us in Christ Jesus.
