Weekly ANNOUNCEMENTS

Announcements for the Week of October 24, 2021

WE WELCOME OUR GUESTS! We are glad you worshiped with us today.  There are welcome sheets in the pews next to the hymnals.  If you are interested in finding out more information, or would like to be contacted by the Pastor, please fill out a sheet and place it in the offering plate or hand it to an usher.  If you have any questions please ask any member or Pastor Doletzky. 

EVANGELISM THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Today we heard Jesus say, “Instead, whoever wants to be great among you will be your servant, 44and whoever wants to be first among you will be a slave of all. 45For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”   (Mark 10:43-45)  What a privilege to serve others with the heart of Jesus and then to let His love shine through us.   Many times God give us opportunities to then share the Good News of Jesus to those we serve.  Be happy to serve and to share Jesus! 

THOSE TO KEEP IN OUR PRAYERS:  Janice Gayan, Paul Drefs, Trudy Flath, Mike & Linda Buchanan, Steve Porath, Loretta Pepin, Lisa Nord, and Yvonne McCarthy. We pray for all of our shut-ins. We pray for our Synod and our missionaries. We pray for our troops, our leaders in the congregation, and in our city, state and nation. We pray for our straying members and those who don’t know Jesus. 

BIBLE CLASS:  Today we will continue studying chapter 3 of The Narrow Lutheran Middle.  Even if you didn’t get the book, please come and learn how important it is to listen to God’s Word and stay on His middle road.  

THE NEW Forward in Christ: for October is here.  Please pick yours up.

QUARTERLY VOTERS’ MEETING:  Reports from the October Quarterly Voters’ meeting are on the cabinet in the hallway.

SUNDAY SCHOOL:  classes will be every Sunday at 9:15 a.m.  For any who may be concerned about COVID, we do have the halls and classrooms equipped with air purification units that kill mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses.  God bless our school year. 

TUESDAY MORNING BIBLE CLASS:  Pastor will begin having Tuesday morning Bible Class at 10 a.m. in the large classroom.  We are studying the book of 1 Samuel.

PASTOR WILL BE GONE:  Pastor Doletzky will be attending the District Pastor’s Conference and a Seminary class on 1 Peter during the conference at Fox Valley Lutheran in Appleton on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday next week.  If you call Pastor, he will get back to you when he is able to get his messages.

NO CATECHISM CLASS:  There will be no Catechism Class next Wednesday, October  27th since Pastor will be in Appleton, attending the District Pastor’s Conference.

CHRISTIAN CARDS: Some new Christian cards were put out this last week.  Stop by for a peek!  The new category “Gentle Thoughts” has some beautiful cards for encouragement and to let someone know you are thinking about / praying for them.   More new cards will come in a few weeks as shipping them is slower than usual.

PASTIES: The Salem Teens will be having a fundraiser with the sale of pasties. The cost will be $4.50 per pasty or $20 for 5 pasties. Pickup is planned for Sunday, November 21st.  Sales will all be done by preorder so please sign up on the list in the hallway or you can order by contacting Theresa Shepard at 906-553-2586 via text or call or emailing her at uphomebase@yahoo.com.

LWMS FALL RALLY: The Lake Superior Fall Rally will be held at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Florence, Wisconsin on Saturday November 6th 2021.  A sign-up sheet is out for ladies that will be going.  All ladies in our congregation are members and are invited to attend the rally.  If you did not know, the “Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society (LWMS) is women dedicated to serving Jesus by increasing awareness of, interest in, and support of the mission outreach of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).”  Time of the rally and any other pertinent information will be posted as it is made available.
