The Youth Group of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Kimball, is sponsoring “Faith’s Hope Tree,” a special Christmas tree which has been set up along Highway 15, in front of the Dingmann Funeral Home in Kimball. Members of the community are invited to bring prayer requests to the tree. Next week’s paper will have prayer request slips to cut out, or use the slips provided in the container next to the tree to submit your needs and concerns. Those seeking prayer are then asked to put their requests in the containers available by the tree, and hang them on the tree with a lit tea light – also provided. The Youth Group will collect the prayer requests and lift them up in prayer to God. The message of Christmas – that God loved us enough to send His Son to be the Savior of the world – encourages us to bring our prayers to Him, and to pray for the needs of others around us.
Watch for a prayer request slip next week.
