With the month of May coming to an end and June here I was completely wrong about my predictions last month about the month of May beginning to dry up, and the warm weather to set in and stay. Hopefully June will change that.

With that being said I would like everyone to become more alert of their surroundings as it begins to warm up, and the weather possibly becomes more tolerable outside. While driving take that extra second to be more alert of your surroundings, you never know when a child or animal will run out. None of us want to lose what we hold near and dear to ourselves or take that away from someone else. Don’t leave 5 minutes too late to be to your destination, leave 5 minutes earlier to allow others to also go about their daily schedule. There is nothing more important than one’s life, so take that extra moment to look twice or slow down when you see animals, children, motorcycles, ATV’s, or Amish buggies traveling down the road. Remember now is the time of year when the motorcycles and bicyclist are out, be courteous share the road, and keep your eyes open for them.

When coming up behind a farmer or Semi driver (trying to get up to speed) doing their job providing for their families, no matter how you look at it, they are working for you to put food on your plate, slow down. They all have families to get home to and put in many long hours to accomplish that. That line everyone says under their breath “oh great how will I get around them, I have to quick pull out in front of them or I will be stuck behind them”. Remember they are operating very large and heavy equipment so they will not be capable of slowing down or stopping like you can in your vehicle. They have many obstructions blocking their view and may not know you are behind them or next to them trying to pass. It is illegal to pass in a no passing zone, no matter what excuse you have. It could put yours and other lives in danger to try and save that couple minutes of being late to your destination. Don’t make this a fire/EMS call because you are in a hurry.   So please take the extra moment to think twice before you react to the situation in a negative manner, instead give them a wave to thank them when you cross paths.  No one gesture in life can change someone’s day like a thank you to know they are appreciated.

 Watch for flashing lights on all emergency vehicles, and remember to slow down or go around in a safe manor. They are there to keep everyone safe and alert of the situation ahead. Don’t become part of the emergency call. 

The fire department is offering FREE smoke alarms which also include installation to the residents within the Reeseville fire district. Call Fire Chief Nic Gay @ 920 210-2510 for more information, and to set up a good time to have yours installed! Call now because there is a limited supply available.

What kid would not love to have a fire truck at their birthday party! We are offering to bring a fire truck and some of our very own firefighters to your house for your kid’s party! All you have to do is contact Fire Chief Nic Gay at 920 210-2510.

If you are a motivated, dedicated, always willing to learn, not afraid of hard work, we have a job for you! If you have any of these qualities we are pleased to announce we are accepting applications at this time. Our Fire Department has a very good group of dedicated and highly motivated members but we could really use YOUR help. Even if you don’t like car accidents or going into fire or you are afraid of heights, we have a job for you also. There are many tasks that it takes to keep a volunteer fire department successful and we would love to have you.

For an application or even any questions or to see what goes on stop at our station on the first third or fourth Monday around 6:30 and just watch or observe.

The Refuge of Reeseville Church

To the Village of Reeseville, our home, our friends and family. And to the many others that perhaps have stumbled upon this page: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father even Jesus Christ our Lord.

[ The following is what the Refuge believes and preaches and is paid for by the Refuge Church.]

Today I would like to share with you a story. A story that is perhaps one of the greatest Love stories ever told. Next to the Sacrifice of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ on a cross, the story of the Prodigal Son gives us an incredible image of the Love that God has for us. Contained within this amazing story is some incredible insight into the truest definition of this mysterious word we call Love. The Truth about Love. Not what Hollywood says, not the grocery store magazine rack, nor any other voice out there that would contradict what is written in the Book.
“Prodigal,” meaning reckless and wasteful.
Luke 15:11 There was a man who had two sons. One day the younger son said to his father, 'Give me now the portion of inheritance that belong to me.’ So the father divided his wealth between his two sons.
[ Inheritance is what we receive when our parents pass away. Here the son is basically wishing his father dead. Can you sense the selfishness and arrogance in the son as he demanded his inheritance from his father? There is no telling here of any argument, no war of words only that the father chooses not to engage and gives the son what he demands.]
And not many days after the younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living.
And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

  And when he came to himself, he said,  I will arise and go to my father.

[ This story is not just about us, but every one of us, how at one point or another in our lives we have wandered away from our home, from God, yes God. or even all together rejected Him and all of the provisions He has promised to us. Because of pride, selfishness, and foolishness. Romans 3:10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one. There is none that understands, there is none that seeks after God. ]

 But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

Hardly the response that we have experience in our own lives. Hardly even the response that we would give to our own. Yet here is, not just a picture, but a Truth of God our Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior RUNNING to be with us.

Another amazing thing about this story is that it is being played out every single day in the lives of men, women, and children across the globe. Every time a heart “comes to themselves,” and they allow God to open their eyes. And then reality sets in, the truth of what damage our actions have caused sets in. The Truth that life is meant to be with our father.

Unfortunately, there are things we embrace that can destroy our life, that can steal our joy. Things that will destroy our relationships. Pride, arrogance, selfishness, hatred and many others.
But glory to God for His mercy on us, that we may come to ourselves! That He able to work through the mistakes we make in this life and bring about a restoration!  And He welcomes us back with open arms and a Joy that we cannot comprehend!


My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church.  We invite you to come to the Refuge.
