Delaney Rottman wins bike at Shrine Circus

On March 8, 2018, the Pawnee City 3rd graders took their annual field trip to the Shrine Circus. As the students entered Lancaster Event Center they were excited about the circus. To their surprise, the students were given a program that was purchased by a community member. Inside each program was a chance to win a bike.

Then during intermission, the ringmaster would announce the winner of the bike. When intermission finally came the students had forgotten about winning a bike. They were too excited talking about all the cool acts they had just watched. Then out of the blue, the ringmaster announced Delaney Rottman you are the winner of a new bike. Delaney tore from her seat with excitement to go claim her new bike. Each year the circus is a trip to remember but when you win a bike it is a memory that will last forever.

Happy Easter 2018!

The foolishness of Christ's crucifiction

By Rev. Tim Llewellyn

Why is March known as 'March Madness'? It is for the basketball. People go crazy to watch the tournaments, especially the NCAA Finals. People go mad as they watch their teams and brackets, doing foolish, angry things out of frustration. Others are madly sick of watching basketball. One might say we become 'fools for basketball'.

While many of us participate in the madness, everyone is a fool for something, and that something is sin. Sin drives us mad in this era and in our culture. Things we say and do, laws we break, scripture we ignore. Sin is at the root of this. There is only one answer for this foolishness and madness, Jesus.
