Faith Lutheran to Hear Cross Words
Members and visitors at Faith Lutheran Church are about to hear
some CrossWords from the pulpit. "CrossWords" is the theme
being used for seven different sermons that will be preached during
the Lenten season, each one focusing on one of the times Jesus spoke
while He was hanging on the cross.
Lent is traditionally a time of repentance and somber reflection,
with some Christians even giving up certain foods or practices during
the 40 days. Lutherans are among the group of Christians who observe
the season, which begins on Ash Wednesday and runs through Good
Friday of Holy Week.
The tone of the CrossWords sermons will be in keeping with the
serious nature of the passion and suffering Jesus endured, as reported
in the four Gospels. Hymns that reinforce the theme will also be
sung during the Wednesday evening services.
Rev. Richard Anderegg, the pastor at Faith Lutheran, will begin
the sermon series on Ash Wednesday, March 5. On March 12 Rev. David
Kettner, from Salem, Missouri, will preach at Faith followed by
the Lutheran pastors from Cuba, Missouri (Rev. Joe Ed Pederson)
and Freedom/Drake, Missouri (Rev. Paul Landgraf). The series will
come to a culmination on Good Friday with a sermon preached on Jesus's
last words from the cross, "Father, into your hands I commit
my spirit" (Luke 23:46).
Visitors are invited to join the congregation for the services
on Wednesdays as well as a meal, which is served at 6:00 p.m. The
service begins at 7:00 p.m.
Faith Lutheran Church is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri
Synod and is located at 981 Highway Z, 1 mile east of the McDonald's
in St. Robert.
Public House Brewing Company
Two All-New Beers On Tap!
Whoopsie Pale Ale -- We have been working on tweaking the Tire Swing
IPA recipe for several months. After an extensive search we found
a great combination of new hops to use in our IPA. Not every brew
day goes as planned, however, and happy mistake s are made. With
a miscalculation of hop amounts and addition times we ended up with
something unexpected. So with a good eraser and quick wit - Presto!
A new beer is born. This beer falls somewhere between and APA and
IPA. Aroma hits you with lots of orange and a little pineapple.
The finish is dry and moderate to moderate high bitterness. It's
already a huge hit! Get a pint today.
Witbier -- This Belgian-style Witbier is light and spicy, with notes
of coriander and orange peel.
Coming Soon....Irish Red Ale! Stay tuned for the release date.
Firkin Tuesday! -- March 11th at 5:30pm -- The firkin beer for March
is Chocolate Stout. Using our Revelation recipe as the base, we
add cocoa nibs post-fermentation to create a decadent chocolate
aroma. Come on chocaholics....getcha some.
Baby Bauer Bistro! -- If you noticed the beautiful red cedar bistro
table near the restrooms, it's there for a good cause. Public House
partnered with Niangua River Rustic Furniture to offer that table
and chairs (a $1,200 value, manufactured by hand in the Ozarks)
in a raffle drawing. The proceeds will go to the medical care of
Bauer White, the child of Brandon and Lauren White. We are calling
it the Baby Bauer Bistro! Bauer was born with a defective heart,
undergoing open heart surgery at 3 months. He also has many other
significant medical challenges. Be sure to check out the Baby Bauer
Bistro and for about the price of a draft, you can enter the raffle
to win! Tickets are $5 or 6 tickets for $25. Get yours now. The
drawing is on March 21st.

February Employee of the Month at Sellers-Sexton
Andy McCubbin-employed as a service tech in July of 2012. Andy
was nominated by several employees for numerous customer engagements
that had a direct impact on customer and employee satisfaction.
Specifically, Andy often works through his lunch hour to assist
customers who are on time lines. One instance involved a customer
who was traveling and ruined a tire. When the vehicle arrived, he
discovered that all the tires were dangerous to be riding on. He
worked through his lunch hour to get new tires installed and the
customer back on the road to their destination. On another occasion,
he transferred a wheel chair lift from one vehicle to another for
a great customer who was not feeling well and needed to get immediate
assistance. Not only a nice guy but very shy. That doesn't hinder
Andy from routinely goes above and beyond the call of duty. Both
managers and employees alike recognize his contributions to the
