Prairie Flower’s Schedule of Sermons for 2018!

Cabin 1

Last Monday, my Associate Pastor and I spent the better part of our day huddled up in a cabin in the woods near the Amana Colonies. We brought nothing but our Bibles, planners, coffee cups, some snacks, and a space heater. Our mission was to carve out some sort of preaching/teaching schedule for the upcoming 2018 year. Though we nearly froze to death in that little cabin, we were successful in our mission!

Pastor Jon and I are pleased to announce that Prairie Flower’s 2018 Preaching Theme will be entitled: Rest Despite Noise. We’ll be in the Old and New Testaments, discovering what it means to find true rest in Christ despite the noise of fear, pain, marriage, grief, etc. We are both truly excited for this series and think that God has led us to preach on this theme “for such a time as this.” Below is the tentative schedule of sermons:
