  2. Jonathan Settel - 11:00 am
    • International Messianic Singer, Jonathan Settel will be in concert on Saturday, March 21 at 11:00 a.m. at The Tabernacle, 256 Church Road, Branson.
      Jonathan Settel was born in Berlin, Germany and grew up in a traditional Jewish family in Washington, D.C. He studied music at the Inter American University of San German, Puerto Rico. For twenty years he was a vocalist in nightclubs, hotels, bars and cruise ships in the United States. In February of 1984, while employed by Walt Disney World, Jonathan had an "Encounter with Eternity". He became a Believer in Yeshua Ha Mashiach. (Jesus, the Messiah).
      For six years Settel was one of the worship leaders for Erev Shabbat Services in a small church in Florida. In 1990, Jonathan responded to The Lord's call to make "Aliyah" (returned to his homeland, Israel), and moved his family to Jerusalem where he came to love and identify completely with the Israeli culture — and was fired up to "bring the Word forth from Zion". After a tremendous growth in his ministry, he, his wife Sharon, and their children returned to the U.S. in June of 1996 to fulfill the next part of God's plan for them.
      Settel International Ministries is a ministry of reconciliation. For too many years, Jews and non-Jews have been looking through the glass of mistrust and suspicion. Jonathan’s vision is that the time to live the unity of the Scriptures has arrived. Through the music of Settel International Ministries, both Gentiles and Jews can touch the Heart of God and feel the arms of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) surround them.
      The public is invited to come worship and seek to bless The King! For further information please contact The Tabernacle at 417-334-7373.

      Since 2001 we have removed over 283 tons of trash and recycled almost 4,600 tires from the shorelines of Table Rock Lake. These impressive results are only possible with the support and dedication of volunteers like you!

      We need your continued support for the Cleanup again this year. Form a team, become a business sponsor (if not already), and help us continue to keep our lake clean and beautiful. If you are unable to organize a team, encourage a neighbor or friend to take the reins this year, and pass this information on to them. We would also appreciate reports from you on any locations you are aware of that need cleaning up. You can contact me by e-mail at ronna@ozarkswaterwatch.org or call 417-739-5001.

      Cleanup supplies are provided and will be ready for you to pick up starting March 27 (locations below).

      The Cleanup takes place anywhere along the almost 800 miles of shoreline. We’ve had over 100 teams and 1,000 volunteers some years and hope to do it again! Teams are made up of families, businesses, home owners associations, church groups, student groups, organizations, scouts, etc. Your team can work morning, afternoon, on Saturday or Sunday. (Roll-off dumpsters only available Friday 4/3 – Monday 4/6). Choose a location you’re familiar with, move to another location, or we can help you coordinate an area for your team to cleanup.

      Use the Volunteer and Trash Tracking Sheet to track your team and cleanup location for us! Please return the Volunteer and Trash Tracking Sheet to our office by April 17. Volunteer Sheets and dumpster maps can also be found on our website ozarkswaterwatch.org. All volunteers will receive a t-shirt and each family gets a coupon for a free night of camping at any Table Rock Lake Corps of Engineers campground! We love to see photos of your team! Remember your camera and send a few choice photos to us at contact@ozarkswaterwatch.org if you’d like to share your Shoreline Cleanup memories. Please wear sturdy shoes, use a lifejacket while on docks or boats, dress appropriately, have fun and be safe!
