RFD CHIEFS CORNER
As spring rapidly approaches and the winter comes to an end I would like to remind everyone that March 12, 2017 to set their clocks ahead. This is the perfect time to replace those batteries and test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Or maybe get that one installed that you have been meaning to put in. They can and may save you and your loved one's life. It also helps us by making sure everyone hears an alarm and knows they need to get out of the building. Smoke alarms detect the presence of smoke even before you can see or smell it. Smoke kills more people than the actual flames do. Carbon monoxide alarms warn of the gas before it reaches dangerous levels. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless but extremely toxic gas. Wisconsin Requires as of February 1, 2011, one of each should be installed on every level of the structure including the basement. If you don't comply to this rule you may never be caught, you may never pay a fine, but you or a loved one may be injured or worse end up paying with a life. If you know of an elderly neighbor or someone that is struggling lend a helping hand and be proud member of our community.
In our department, we rely a lot on our family. Not only our family at home but the family we establish by being part of our local fire department. We are all family and very proud to wear the Reeseville Fire Department name. Would you like to be able to make a difference in our community and are looking to help people when they are at the lowest point in their life? You as a Reeseville firefighter will be in a position and have
the proper tools and training to solve his or her problem or problems. What other job out there can give you that? Yes, there may be some things that may seem repetitive or boring like washing trucks, meetings, working at events, but that can all change in an instant and the thrill of responding to the call and riding in a fire truck just never gets old. You will go home at the end of the day knowing you made a difference.

The Refuge of Reeseville Church
Greetings to all of you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Blessings from our Savior to you and to Reeseville and to our Nation. We are very thankful to God for this opportunity to share with you the heart of the Refuge of Reeseville Church.
[ The following is what the Refuge believes and preaches and is paid for by the Refuge Church.]
Up Coming Events:
On April 23rd @ 11:00 am, the Refuge of Reeseville Church will be having its’ annual Easter Celebration Service at the Community Center in Reeseville. Watch for upcoming details. We invite the community to come and worship, fellowship, and eat with us. We have some of the best cooks in Dodge County! All are welcome and desired to attend. There is no cost. Please come and enjoy and be filled!
I am writing to you today to inform you that this will possibly be the last letter I will be able to write to you in the Reeseville Newsletter. So, I thought I would take the opportunity to share some things with you about our American Heritage and perhaps a little bit of reasoning why it is so important to keep God in our society and the crucial role Christianity has played forming the great nation we have today. America was never a Christian nation, America was a nation of Christians, meaning that, the clear majority of the people were Christians. And that Christianity became the foundation upon which this nation prospered and excelled to become the greatest physical nation on the earth.
Karl Marx, the author of the Communist Manifesto, wrote “Take away the heritage of a people and they are easily persuaded.” How true that is! This also shows how important it is to KNOW where we came from.
Here is a quote written in a letter by John Adams to Tomas Jefferson on December 25, 1813. John Adams served as Vice President under 1st President George Washington, and then became the second President of the United States.
“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” (Thomas Jefferson, The Writings of
Thomas Jefferson (Washington D. C.: The Thomas Jefferson Memorial Association, 1904), Vol. XIII, p. 292-294. In a letter from John Adams to Thomas Jefferson on June 28, 1813.)
Even the Bible itself became the leading text book in public class rooms across the nation since before this nation was even born. And it continued until June 25, 1962, when the US Supreme Court determined in that a prayer approved by the New York Board of Regents for use in public schools violated the First Amendment because it “constituting an establishment of religion.” The following year, in Abington School District v. Schempp, the Court prohibited Bible reading in public schools for the same reasons.
Can you imagine what America would be like without its’ Christian Roots? Can you imagine what society would be like today without its’ Christian foundations? Can you imagine a society without God?
Colleges, hospitals, schools, charities, organizations, many, many more of them were wrought out of Christian convictions. If there was not God, who would make the laws to govern a society? The strongest and those who are in power?
Why is that not good? Where does morality come from except God? Because without God, there is no morality. Everyone does that which is right in their own eyes. There are some that believe murder is okay! There are many that believe lying is okay! Are they going to make the laws for us? Will anyone be safe anymore?
The heart of man was never meant to be the source of morality. Man, was never intended to bear rule on his own morality. We are created in the image of God. Genesis 1:27 God is not created in our image. God alone is the source of all morality. From an evolutionary standpoint, humans are just an insignificant product of random natural processes. It is therefore impossible that morality could be born out of such conditions.
The Heart of man is deceitfully wicked. Who can know it. Jeremiah 17:9
There is only One that is good and that is God. Mark 10:18
