There's a new church plant in town, at least if the town is North Liberty, Iowa. What's it's name? Agua's Trough? Washington Knolls? The Back Street? No, try Saint Silas Lutheran Church. This new church plant, located just northwest of Iowa City, is being supported by Iowa District East. Pastor Andrew Richard, the Assistant Pastor at St. Paul’s Lutheran Chapel in Iowa City is planting the seed. As you might have guessed from the name, this is not a plant based on a seeker sensitive model, it's a liturgical church with an emphasis on Law and Gospel. I'm sure they will appreciate your prayers as they endeavor to spread God's Word in an area that sorely needs to hear it. If you'd like to help water that seed with a contribution, contact Rev. Dr. Dean F. Rothchild, Iowa District East LCMS, 1100 Blairs Ferry Road, Marion, IA 52302. Here's the details:
