Tenth Sunday of Pentecost Aug 13, 2017
Welcome in the name of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. If you are visiting, we are glad that you are here and kindly ask that you sign our guest book at the sanctuary doors. If you would like to become a member please speak to the Pastor. In case of illness, the Pastor should be informed. He will always be glad to speak with those who are confronted with problems of a spiritual nature. The time before worship is a quiet time for prayer and meditation to prepare for worship. Please see the inside cover of the hymnal for prayers and page 329f to prepare for Holy Communion. Communicant members are asked to fill out a communion card found in the pew racks and place it in the offering plates.
Collect of the Day
Almighty and most merciful God, preserve us from all harm and danger that we, being ready in both body and soul, may cheerfully accomplish what You want done; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever

Bible Class and Sunday School
Since the Lord’s Supper gives the forgiveness of sins in the body and blood of Christ to all who believe the words “given and shed” and is also a celebration of oneness in faith, we ask that only those who have professed such faith publicly in a Lutheran Church-Canada (or Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod) congregation come to the Lord’s Altar. Everyone intending to commune for the first time is kindly asked to speak with the Pastor prior to the service.

LOOKING FOR USED MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS: Bristol Road Middle School (Mississauga) is starting an instrumental music program for their students this fall. They will require approximately 120 instruments. So far, they have received a donation of 35 instruments, mostly from a high school that is closing. Therefore, they still need a lot more instruments. Some students will buy or rent instruments but not all families can afford this. Therefore, we are looking for donations of used musical instruments of ANY KIND (e.g., brass, woodwind, string), in ANY CONDITION. If you have a used instrument that you no longer need and would like to donate, please contact: Lisa Talvak

People can come in the morning for prep, or in the afternoon for serving, busing or drying dishes. Or to help close. Morning times 9-12 Afternoon 2-5 Evening 5-7.
