HARVEST MISSION CELEBRATION
Information about Austin Regier and his family:
The Regier family hails from East of Newton Kansas where their ancestors have farmed and raised hogs for over one hundred years. The family is comprised of Ken and Amy Regier and their four children, Erin (with husband Matt Graber originally from South Dakota), Austin (with wife Elizabeth Ratzlaff originally from Moundridge, KS), Addie (currently a Junior at Bethel College), and Eli (currently a Senior at Newton High School).
The Regier's have a deep love for bluegrass music stemming primarily from Edwin Regier, Ken's father, who played in a a group called the Country Jamboree. At Regier family reunions, you can expect Ella (Kroeker) Regier to request that instruments be brought, and the making of music is a consistent family tradition. Ken and Amy's family did not manage to escape this dangerous predilection towards bluegrass, and now the whole family plays and sings together. Like most bluegrass bands, Kilometer 81 is named after a leprosy hospital in Paraguay. We love playing music and we love sharing that music with others.
Information about STEPMC:
Steps to End Poverty of McPherson County (STEPMC)
is on a mission to walk alongside people until they are out of poverty. We do
this by forming a community around those in our program, fostering connections,
and creating pathways of opportunity and success. STEPMC creates a framework
for people to build relationships across economic and class lines in order to
transform lives. We believe that responsibility for both poverty and prosperity
rests not only in the hands of individuals, but also with societies,
institutions, and communities. Our approach is a progressive model that
suggests low-income families must have strong social capital and connections
within their communities in order to improve their economic situation. Families
and individuals enroll in our training to build financial, emotional, and
social resources as well as an economic stability plan that sets goals unique
to their own needs and dreams. These families, called Team Leaders, are paired
with trained mid- to high-income community volunteers, called Team Partners,
who support their efforts to achieve economic stability. Each week, STEPMC
meets to provide peer support and to discuss strategies for attaining
NEWS AND NOTES
Letter from Pastor Terry & Jerilee:
Terry and Jerilee Rediger have accepted a call to serve the Western Mennonite Church of Salem, Oregon as interim half time pastor for at least a year. Terry’s first Sunday there was last Sunday, September 1. We did get to do everything we wanted to this summer except go camping along the ocean beach. We still hope to do that sometime this fall while the weather is nice. We think of you often and miss all of you. We are presently living at a relative’s home as we wait for our retirement home to be built in Dallas, OR. We were hoping to see you this fall when we came back for our household items which are in storage in Liberal. But now it looks like it will be January until we come back to get our household items. We wish you God’s blessing and the very best as you continue your journey as a congregation serving the Lord.
Our temporary address until January is 30001 Canyon View Drive, Lebanon, OR 97355. We will send you our permanent address hopefully sometime in early January. Our email address is the same….firstname.lastname@example.org. Terry’s cell number is 620-621-0408. Jerilee’s is 620-621-0554.
Your’s in Christ, Terry and Jerilee
