Scripture-based prayers for Pastors:
Lord, by Your Holy Spirit, anoint Pastor Scott to preach, and bring apostolic results (Acts 2:37). As my pastor speaks the Word, let sign and wonders follow confirming it (Mark 16:20). 
Let the sick be healed; let the oppressed be set free. Anoint Pastor Scott with the truth (Matthew 16:17). Let people be cut to the heart and accept Jesus Christ.

Pastor Scott's Weekly Devotionals

   Do You Know One?

My friend Muriel used to live in her home here in North Loup.  Then last year she moved into an assisted living facility about 30 miles away.  Then a couple months ago she moved into a memory care unit. She's been experiencing a lot of change in the last couple of years!

These locational changes have occurred because of Muriel's physical and mental changes.  Her capacities in these areas have gradually been decreasing.  Though not fun, these changes are a normal part of living in a decaying body.

As her ability to take care of herself has been decreasing, so has Muriel's freedom.  She no longer has the freedom to choose where she will go and what she will do.  Unless Christ comes to take her home first, she will eventually die in a hospital or nursing home, trapped in a bed or wheelchair.

Yes, it is a very depressing picture, but it's a real picture for millions of people everyday.  Do you know one of them?

Do you have the ability to visit one person in a care facility for 30 minutes every month?  They don't need elaborate gifts or profound words from us.  All they need is us.  Our making the effort to come into their space is a huge gift!

Transform yourself into a gift by visiting someone this month.

Sharing the journey,

Pastor Scott

          Meet Pastor Scott Hausrath

 Born in San Jose, California in 1961, Pastor Scott was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.  In 1980, while  attending the University of California at Berkeley, he heard the gospel and became a Christian, thanks to the  ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.

 Desiring to serve in gospel ministry, Pastor Scott attended Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, where he first met  Seventh Day Baptists. He became a member of the San Gabriel Valley SDB congregation and was blessed  through the ministry of Pastor John and Ruthie Peil. Upon graduating from Fuller, Pastor Scott was given the  opportunity to minister with the Foothill SDB congregation in Montrose, CA.

After pastoring in Montrose for fifteen years, he stepped down and moved to Redmond, Washington, to assist his step-mother in taking care of his father, who was struggling with Parkinson's Disease. While in Washington, Pastor Scott was very blessed to enjoy the fellowship of the Seattle Area SDB Church. He was particularly touched by the ministry of Pastor Ken and Ruth Burdick.

Shortly after his father's death in August of 2011, Pastor Scott was contacted by the North Loup, Nebraska SDB Church, who were seeking a minister. Upon accepting the congregation's call to ministry, he began pastoring in North Loup on February 1, 2012.
