The Men’s Fellowship of St. John Lutheran Church of Uhland had a successful day catering the Gearheads car show at Cabela’s in Buda on Sat., Oct. 20. The breakfast tacos, chipped beef sandwiches and hot dogs, etc. were well received. The guys say thanks to all who helped, donated and especially to those who partook of the well-prepared food.
The sermon at St. John Lutheran Church on Sunday was “On Eagles Wings.” Prior to the sermon, a hymn, “On Eagles Wings,” was sung by Aviana Burkepile and accompanied by organist, Pamela Fisher. A beautiful hymn by a beautiful voice! Thanks, Aviana, we hope to hear you again. Thanks to Pamela also and to David Goeke for the inspiring sermon.

An early Halloween party was held at the home of Dorothy Schneider last Wednesday. Guests Trisha Wydle, Cheryl Williams and Gary Schneider enjoyed an outdoor chilidog supper. No tricks, just treats! On Friday, Dorothy accompanied Bruce and Gary Schneider to Schertz-Clemens for the Hays game. Hays won! Her grandson Michael Schneider is a drummer in the Hays band.
On Sunday, Daniel and Sharon Heideman along with Myrtle Heideman were dinner guests of Erica Karel of Austin and her parents and houseguests, Rene and Doris Karel of Houston. The family cooked a very delicious Czech dinner. Also enjoying the meal was her fiancé, Brian Heideman of Austin. An enjoyable evening of visiting and story telling made for a great visit.
Glad to report Daniel Heideman is doing okay after gall bladder surgery last week.
