            CHIEFS CORNER
September has gone by, and the heat wave just might be over. Although the weather man is calling for upper 70’s, and possibly low 80’s next week again. Regardless of that, we have not had much rain to speak of lately.  The farm fields and grass are well into their dry down stages. So I encourage everyone to be very careful when doing any burning of any kind outside especially with the unpredictable winds we have been having. Just as a reminder it is illegal to burn leaves within the Village of Reeseville city limits and a burning permit must be obtained in the township of Lowell

The RFD would like to invite the whole community with all their families, and friends to our annual pancake breakfast for fire prevention week on Sunday October 8th 2017 serving from 8am until 12pm at the Reeseville Community Center. Prices:  Adults $7.00, children 5yrs-12yrs $4.00, and children under 5yrs old are free.

Fire prevention week is to honor the great Chicago fire that happen on October 8th -10th 1871. It started at 9:00 pm on a small farm outside Chicago; City officials never really determined what caused the blaze. It is said that a cow knocked over a fire lit lantern, or that the man of the house was in the barn having a few drinks playing cards with friends, and kicked over the lantern. The fire spread quickly to all the surrounding buildings and roads which were made of wood. The fire department had 185 fire fighters at that time with 17 horse drawn steam engines. The fire spread to the city’s waterworks and the city water went dry. It finally started to rain and the rain helped put the fire out. The city determined that the fire destroyed about 200 acres of land. The death toll was around 300.

Sunday October 8th will also be the Reeseville Fire Departments first night of BINGO, which will be held at Reeseville Community Center. Prices for BINGO will by listed at the door. Doors will open at 4:30pm; BINGO will start at 5:30pm. Come on down and try your luck at some BINGO or even just try it out for the first time. There will be food and refreshments served by the Reeseville Community Center, prices will be posted at the Community Center. Bring your wife down, let her play some BINGO while you, relax, watch some Sunday night football, and enjoy some social time and drinks at the bar with friends and neighbors of the community. We have put a lot of time, and efforts into making this community event happen; we hope to see you there. We will be hosting BINGO once a month, the dates are set as; Sunday November 12th 2017, and December 10th 2017 same time same place.

Halloween is approaching, Trick or Treating will by October, 29th starting at 3:00pm until 5:00pm, in Reeseville. Please watch for children, they are excited to get that next piece of candy and may not be watching for cars as they run into the street to get to the next house. It is also time for carving pumpkins, and putting candles in them out on the front/back porch. To be safe, instead of using real candles use the battery-operated tea light candles. This can help prevent the pumpkins from catching on fire.

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.

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.

Remember when we were younger? Everyone played the role as a child or wanted to grow up to be a superhero, a police officer, a doctor, a nurse, or a FIREFIGHTER!! Now is your chance to be that real-life superhero to the children in our community. Maybe you think you don't have time? Maybe you have some fears that you are fighting? Maybe you think it’s not your job? Maybe you think you can't do it?  These are excuses, and nothing more than that. Volunteer departments like ours, and throughout the state of Wisconsin are in need of people. We will give you the training you need to overcome these obstacles. We are being faced with less and less people willing to volunteer, and with no volunteers what happens the day no one answers the call? I never want to see that happen. We here at the RFD have very busy schedules with work and family just like every one of the citizens we serve. We do the best job we are capable of to try and keep this community safe, and have adequate fire/rescue coverage, we need your help. If you are, or have considered serving your community what better way.  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 is our family, and we have a very good group of dedicated and highly motivated members, 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, any questions or to see what goes on stop at our station on the first third or fourth Monday around 6:30.

             As we start off the new year in 4H we look forward to seeing everyone during our community events.  We wouldn’t be able to put on some of the things we do without your help – so thanks in advance for everything the community does for us.

The Refuge of Reeseville Church

Greetings the Name of Jesus Christ. Reeseville, this is where the LORD has brought us. We are here to serve and pray for our community and its’ families as best as we are able. We believe this is where He wants us to be. Maybe to bring some light into someone’s darkness. To bring some hope into someone’s despair. To give help where ever there may be a need. Only with His help and  only with His blessing.


Update: The Refuge has changed the time of our weekly bible study from Tuesday night to Wednesday night starting @ 6:30pm.

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


Is your heart searching for answers to the questions of “why?” Are you frustrated with a world offers so much but provides so little? Are you looking for the one Truth that could change your life forever? You’ve tried so many remedies prescribe by the world, but they have only left you empty and worse than before. So many different voices telling me so many different things. I don’t know what to believe. Are you searching for the evidence, evidence of something? Is your heart asking the same thing Pontius Pilate asked before the Christ was crucified, “What is Truth?”

If there is a Truth out there, I want to know it. A Truth that I can see with my own eyes. A Truth that I can hold onto. A Truth that will change my life forever.

Well, I’m here to share with you, we have an evidence in our world today that holds our Judeo/Christian values and beliefs an eternity above all other religions and beliefs There is a verification of the Judeo/Christian in our view this very day that would confound the agnostic, stamped on the earth, the finger print of the Divine Authority that no atheist can give an acceptable nor adequate answer to.

I direct your attention to the Nation of Israel. The only Nation in the history of the world to be reborn in a day after 1000’s of years of being scattered across the world. From being the most powerful nation in the world, to being wiped off the map, then to become, once again, one of the most powerful nations in the world. And God said it all would happen in His Word, through the prophets of old, written in our bibles today, in the palm of our hands. God said it would happen and God made it happen.

From 587B.C. to May 16, 1948, for over 2500 years, Israel ceased to be its’ own sovereign nation. The Jewish people were scattered across the world after God had warned them many times it would happen if they didn’t observe His commandments. Leviticus 26:33And they didn’t, and they were scattered, just like He said.

But God, in His great mercy and love, also promised that one day, they would rise again. Ezekiel 37:21 After so many years, after so many calamities and misfortunes. After millennia of wandering without a land they could call home.  From a pile of dried out, brittle bones, the Nation of Israel would be restored to its’ former world power status. And God will make it happen because God said it all would happen. God Almighty restored Israel and Israel will never again be destroyed! Because it is written, and we believe it, and we are seeing it right before our eyes.

The Jewish and Christian bibles are filled with hundreds of Prophesies and Truths about the Nation of Israel and its’ future. Would you like to know what will happen, perhaps someday soon, in the future of our world? The world is not going to end.Ephesian 3:21 Despite all the predictions. And we’re not going to find anything out on CNN, they refuse to believe all the evidence anyway. But we are going to watch Israel, are you?

My name is Chris Behymer, Pastor of The Refuge Church.  We invite you to come and learn with us about the Nation of Israel and what God has promised about what is going to happen someday.
