Weekly Bulletin

5th Sunday after Pentecost       Jun 24, 2018

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.

Almighty God, in Your mercy guide the course of this world so that Your Church may joyfully serve You in godly peace and quietness; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Holy Communion:

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.

Speaker of the Lutheran Hour: Rev. Dr. Ken Klaus

After seeing one of the Savior’s miracles the disciples asked, “Who is this Guy?” After Pentecost, they knew Who Jesus was and why He had come. Even so, the world keeps coming up with wrong answers when they ask, “Just Who is this Guy?”  _CHAM 820/AMSUN 8:am

THANK YOU   Viena has been our seminary representative since 1982 and has asked to be relieved from this duty.  She has done a tremendous job. Please tell her so! To those that don’t know what this entails …it means keeping in touch with the seminary at St. Catharines, letting us know the news from there and asking for your $5.00 to be a member of the seminary guild.  Where else can you join such a worthy group of supporters for our wonderful future Pastors?  Please feel free to see your new Seminary representative, Carolyn and let her know that you want to be a member and support this worthy cause.  We have a new leader, Pastor Harold Ristau has taken the position as leader of the seminary and next visiting day is Harvest Day on Saturday, October 20,2018.  Our present seminary student who we support is Josh and his wife and two children, who would love to hear from you.
