A Holy Time—Lent
Who Do You Say that I Am?
We enter the holy time of Lent on Ash
Wednesday, February 18.
Lent is not a time to be sad as much as it is a time
to draw closer to Jesus. Jesus asked his first followers
to come with him. In ways that are just as compelling
and sometimes subtle, Jesus Christ asks us to walk
with him, too.
One way he asked his first followers for their
attention and commitments was to ask a question:
“Who Do You Say that I Am?”
It’s a great question. We need to ask that
question of ourselves now more than ever. Who DO
we say that Jesus Christ is? In our words. In our
Actions. In our Hearts. In our Lives.
Come and explore the ways people who walked
with Jesus answered that question, “Who Do You
Say that I Am?” We’ll see that he is at work in our
lives like he was in theirs: There is Hope. There is
In Christ,
Who Do You Say that I Am?
Jesus’ Question to his first followers…and to us.

Building upgrades in process
The First Church Trustees
(Building Committee) elected 2015
officers on January 13. Chair John
Helter, Vice Chair Lynn Ayers,
Secretary David Schoenmaker,
Treasurer Chuck Leypoldt. The
Trustees have several projects in
various stages of study and planning.
Our architect, Dan Mulligan and
his staff at Inner Space have a
preliminary plan for increasing seating
areas in the Sanctuary for persons
using wheel chairs and walkers. His
initial plans will go to the Trustees in
their February meeting, and then there
will be conversations with a variety of
persons in the church about the plans.
The goal is to have accessible seating
areas up close and also further back to
give worshipers a range of options.
Dan’s plans show that some of
the Sanctuary’s differing-length pews
can be moved so that only two pews
would have to be cut in order to make
space for eight or more persons in
wheel chairs or walkers in the
Sanctuary. A goal of his plans was to
move the accessible seating area to the
space “inside” the pillars. The current
location for two persons in
wheelchairs is on the outside edge of
pillar. Since the entire Sanctuary floor
is slanted, any new locations identified
for accessible seating will have to
include leveling the floor in that area.
The Trustees have been working
with Marty Kasl of ETI, who is
finishing designs for potential
improvements to our heating and
cooling systems in the Sanctuary.
Among our needs: 1). Air conditioning
in the balcony area for the first time
ever, 2). Keeping the organ chambers
at a more consistent temperature, 3).
Ways to minimize sound of the
current heat pumps and 4). Improving
airflow to the choir areas. A part of
the reason the Choir gets so warm is
the large vents behind the choir are air
return vents. The only air they get is
what comes back to them after it has
been to the congregation and on the
way to return air vents.
Exploring options for automated
door openers for the northwest and
northeast Sanctuary doors as well as
the North building doors to the
parking lot has begun. O’Keefe
Elevator is also designing a way to
have an electric eye installed in our
elevator doors. They have installed
for the first time a phone system in
the elevator.
As energy-saving lighting options
improve, the Trustees have prioritized
completing Phase III of the lighting
project, which will mean the entire
Church Building will have energyefficient lighting.

Happenings ~ February 2015
Jay Stewart, Minister with Youth, Children & Families
Celebrating the Past: People’s City Mission—The youth
had a great time at the People City Mission in January. The
youth were very courteous and outgoing to the residents of
the People’s City Mission. However, the youth became
really intrigued by the Christmas story as displayed at St.
James Catholic Church. All of the youth were really amazed
by the display and were quick to ask Pastor Larry about the
meaning of the scenes. The youth did not want to leave the
display. In fact, we had to tell two youth that we were
leaving. The youth not only loved seeing the display, but
also loved talking about the meaning of Christmas. To God
Be The Glory!
Embracing the Future—The next time the youth and their
youth leaders are going to the People City Mission will be
February 1st, from 4:00 p.m. to approximately 7:30 p.m.
We’ll meet at the Church. You are invited to join and serve
with the youth at the Mission. Please let Jay Stewart know if
you are interested.
Celebrating the Past—Wednesday Youth Faith Night—
After one of our most recent Life
celebrations on Wednesday nights, a
youth intern came up to me and was
beyond elated! The youth intern smiling
from ear-to-ear said, “Jay we had such a
real and good conversation about life and
about the faith. People were sharing
honestly about their life and God. Two
young men in particular that I have never
met before said some powerful things!
It’s awesome to be able to grow with the
youth in faith in Christ!” Another adult
expressed, “These kids are hungry to live
for something deeper… They do not want to be
entertained, they want to be transformed!” To God Be the
Embracing the Future—Please join us as we grow in
friendship with each other and grow in friendship with God
through Worship, Dinner, and Small Groups. Our topic for
Wednesday Youth Faith Night for the season of Lent is
“Jesus is…..” It will be a great time to discover who Christ
is through the means of songs, Scriptures, messages, and in
Celebrating the Past: House Groups—At the most recent
“House Group” we discussed about “God’s initiating Love”
to all persons. One youth stated during our time, “I used to
Happenings ~ February 2015
think that I was the only one broken. I would go through
life thinking I am the only one messed up and I felt horrible.
But I came to understand that everyone has their own
struggles. I also came to realize that God loves me all the
time, even in the midst of my struggles.” The youth
discussed Isaiah 55, “Come to the Waters.” The youth and
the youth leaders learned that we are to come to the Waters
of Grace just as we are. It was amazing to see how God was
moving during this time, we had great laughter and we had
great sharing. To God Be the Glory!
Embracing the Future—House Groups will occur on
February 8th and 22nd from 12:15 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Our
focus for the season of Lent is trying to answer the question
Jesus asks the disciples, “Jesus is….” During this time we
will utilize inspiring video, Scripture, and discussion to try to
answer such an important question. We also share a meal
together as we also share great laughter through having
“Funny Video” challenge. Hope and pray you’re able to join
us as we continue to experience the amazing real love of
Jesus for us!
3P’s—Prayers, Pancakes, and Play—Join us on Sunday
mornings as we pray (Worship), eat pancakes, and play
games such as “Four Square,” “Basketball” etc. This is a
very relaxed time in which friendship can be built between
youth and youth leaders. We will meet every Sunday at
10:00 a.m. in the Church Gym. Hope to see you soon!

Kathy Nelson of Stromsburg has written More than
Football: George Flippin’s Stromsburg Years. Released in

American to play football at the University of Nebraska.
He later joined his father as a doctor in Stromsburg,
Chuck Leypoldt of Lincoln published his
autobiography in January 2015. It’s title is Lost in Wonder,
Love, and Praise. He describes it as a sentimental and
sometimes irreverent memoir of growing up as a preacher’s
kid, working as a pastor, banker, and insurance agent in
Nebraska from 1970 to 2012.
Chuck’s grandfather worked for the Flippin family in
1909, and he shared this information and a photo with
Kathy, and she used it in her book. When Chuck started
his project, Kathy became a trusted advisor.

Sunday Route 1
First Church folks have been delivering Meals on
Wheels on Sundays for 25+ years. Volunteers are needed.
This is an easy route with one stop at an apartment building.
Zita Schneider at 402-466-7196 would like to hear from you
if you can volunteer on Sunday between 10:30 a.m. and
Noon. Please call!
The following is a prepared statement from Tabitha.
“Tabitha Meals on Wheels has delivered a hot, noon
meal to the homes of individuals in the Lincoln community
since 1967. It remains the only program of its kind helping
individuals remain independently in their homes. People
who receive meals do so for many different reasons: they
may be unable to go get groceries any longer; their physical
limitations or memory issues may cause difficulties in cooking complete meals; or, they may want to eat more healthfully. The program is based on the Gospel from Matthew
25, ‘For I was hungry and you gave me something to drink.’
A verse from Scripture is in every meal sack.
“Meals provided by Tabitha Meals on Wheels are prepared by Tabitha’s nutrition department and are well balanced, including grains, proteins, vegetables and dairy.
“Tabitha Meals on Wheels clients receive not only a
balanced meal, but families gain the peace of mind knowing
that a volunteer is checking on their loved one with every
meal delivery.
“Recipients pay for their meals either fully or at a reduced rate based on their income or assets. We know this
service is important for individuals to live independently in
their homes—that’s why we never turn anyone away because of financial constraints.
“Our supportive Meals on Wheels donors and a team
of 900+ volunteers are essential in providing this much
needed service to those in need in our community.
“Routes take about 90 minutes and begin at 10:30 a.m.
A reliable automobile, valid driver’s license and proof of
insurance are required.”
