New Year's Eve Prayer Concert A 20 member steering committee representing 19 area wide Christian congregations is excited to offer the community a special new years eve Concert of Prayer, December 31, 1999. The event will be held at New t, ife Community Baptist Church, 9- 11:00 p.m. There will also be refresh- merits and an "afterglow" party in the New Life Center following the con- cert as we bring in the new millenni- um at midnight. Jan Schmidt, chairperson of the Program Committee, had this to say about the upcoming Concert. "Carl and I have truly enjoyed working on the Steering Committee for the Concert of Prayer. We really encour- age you to set this evening aside as a special way to usher in the new mil- lennium. If new year's eve is a fami- ly time for you, what better place to be with your family than with other Christian families celebrating?" Some may not know what a Concert of Prayer is. Pastor Dave Hinrichs, coordinator of the event explained it this way: "It is the area- wide gathering of Christians from all denominations who come together for a concert of sorts. As in an orchestra, where there are many instrumentalists who come together to make beautiful music, so we come together from dif- ferent backgrounds and traditions and unite our prayers and songs of praise. We believe that the conductor of our concert is none other than Jesus him- self who pulls us together breaking down walls of division. At each Concert of Prayer there are 2 components: worship (praise music) and prayer. Each concert will includc much music which lilts the spirit. There will be congregational singing, solo's and performance groups, instrumentalists, and sometimes a community choir. The real power of the concert, however, is prayer. Typically there will be 16-20 lay per- sons representing the various congre- gations who will lead in short prayers interspersed throughout the service. It is a fast moving worship experience that lifts the soul." The upcoming New Year's Eve Concert of Prayer promises to be a most memorable and unique way t<; bring in the year 2000. The commu- nity is encouraged to come together and celebrate. CLASSIFIED ADS BRING QUICK RESULTS nrofits - ........... Increase r,, o.. with no-till Strip-till. Direct Seeding. Zero-till. Are these all No-till? While the differences in these practices are significant, all of these practices are considered an approach to a no-till crop production system. Why use the no-till approach? Regardless which no-till approach is used, the net result is increased profitability per acre, higher quality soil, improved water quality and a brighter future. This is particularly evident when the approach is used in consecutive years. Increased organic matter, microbial activity and improved soil structure minimizes the effects of excess rain or drought by reducing run-off and increasing infiltration. This slowed water transport process gives the increased microbial action an opportunity to improve water quality and availability. Improved soil quality also improves long--term productivity and reduces inputs which can increase profit per acre. Best of all, future generations benefit from today's soil improvements.
