Thanks to God for the healthy birth of Anastasia "Annie" Joy Koch, born to Pastor Tim and Emily Koch on July 11, 2018. Both mom and baby are doing well. Anastasia joins big brothers Ezra and Levi and sister Evelyn. Pastor Koch currently serves the dual congregation of Concordia-Immanuel at Cresbard-Wecota, SD; but has recently accepted the call to Emanuel, Milbank, SD.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.
Go on up to a high mountain, O Zion, herald of good news; lift up your voice with strength, O Jerusalem, herald of good news; lift it up, fear not; say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!”
Behold, my servant shall act wisely; he shall be high and lifted up, and shall be exalted.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up
