Announcements for the Week of June 4, 2023

WE WELCOME OUR GUESTS  and ask them to please sign our guest register.  We are glad to have you worship 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 the Apostle Paul share God’s blessing with us, The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Corinthians 13:14 EHV)  You too have been entrusted with such a blessing to share with others who so desperately need it.  Don’t forget how important you are.  God put you where you are to share the grace, love, and fellowship of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit with others in your life. 

THOSE TO KEEP IN OUR PRAYERS:  Steve Carlson (husband of Sue Carlson who is a member at St Paul, Hyde), Francis Dittrich, Judy Wright, Lee Robbert, Helga Stier, Mary Porath, and Mike & Linda Buchanan. 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:   Our Bible Class is on the book of Romans.  This is a key book in our Bibles.  This was the book that God used to enlighten Martin Luther with the gospel.  Come and grow in the living and enduring Word of God.  It will be time well spent and you will walk closer with Jesus and His people.  

  1. OLIVE: Our sister congregation, Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Iron Mountain, received a graduate from our Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to serve as their next Pastor. Pastor Samuel Westra is from Grove City, OH and will be installed later this summer. We truly give thanks to the Lord for this great gift to them, especially during this time of shortages.

NEW Meditations:  for the next three months is out.  If you haven’t picked one up for your daily devotional, please take one.  Also, please share one with someone you know who could use that daily encouragement from God in His Word.

NEW Forward In Christ:  The June edition of the Forward is Christ is on the cabinet in the hallway and available to be picked up.  Please consider sharing a copy, especially if you find an encouraging article that you think would help someone.

A NEW SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER IS NEEDED:  We are in need of a Sunday School teacher.  Any man or woman who is willing to share the wonders of God love with children in our upper grades, please let me know.  I am more than willing to work with you.  Psalm 78:4 tells us, We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders that he has done.   We thank the Sunday School teachers past and present, and all who have been part of this great mission our Lord has given us.  Thank you, Pastor. 

NEW MISSION CONGREGATION:  One of the 10 missions in ten years that has been approved for this year is to start a new mission congregation in Marquette, MI.  The mission board has called a man to serve as the pastor of this new home mission.  This congregation will be separate from St. Paul’s in Green Garden, Michigan (outside of Marquette).

MONDAY NIGHT WORSHIP:  will begin tomorrow, Monday, June 5th at 6:30 p.m. and will continue until Monday, August 28th.  If you are out of town on Sunday or work on Sunday, please make these Monday worship services to hear God’s Word and receive the Sacrament when offered.

A HISTORY PRESENTATION:  Last year we had former WELS pastor, Tim Mutterer, present a history presentation on President John Quincy Adams and his personal life.  It was quite interesting and everyone who came enjoyed it.  This year Tim is in the area again and willing to present on the personal life of Abraham Lincoln.  Please remember that the presentation is not political, but historical insights into the personal life of President Lincoln and his family.  During the difficult years of  the Civil War, I’m sure we will learn to appreciate what President Lincoln and his wife went through.  This presentation will be after late worship on Sunday, June 25th.  Plan on attending, you will find it interesting. 

NEW CALENDAR FOR JUNE:  The June church calendar is available for you to pick up. 

SIGN FUND: Please note there is a fund for a new sign if you would like to contribute to getting a new digital sign that will make it a lot easier to change the message.  Just designate an offering for “sign fund.”  We thank the Lord for the gifts of His people.

CENTRAL AFRICA MEDICAL MISSION (CAMM) APRIL MONTHLY LETTER: A copy of the April CAMM Monthly Letter can be found on the hallway cabinet by the Christian greeting cards. The April CAMM Monthly Letter was written by Violet Chikwatu, LMC Nurse in Charge.  She goes over the devastation that recent Cyclone Freddy has caused to their country. Prior CAMM Monthly Letters can be found in the orange binder that is also located by the Christian greeting cards. Monetary donations can be sent to:  WELS Gift Processing, N16 W23377 Stone Ridge Drive, Waukesha, WI  53188 with checks made out to Central Africa Medical Mission. Please continue to pray for CAMM and the people we serve in Malawi and Zambia.  Any questions about CAMM can be directed to Kathy Grill, CAMM Contact Woman for the WELS Lake Superior Circuit. 

FLOWERS FOR WORSHIP:  We all have the opportunity to supply a fresh bouquet of flowers for the altar during a worship service.  Whether in celebration, memory, or just for the many blessings we have received, please sign up for a Sunday on the flower chart in the entry hall.  The bouquets are $16.00 for one and $24.00 for two.  Please make your check out to the Women’s Evening Service Group and everything else will be taken care of for you. Please speak to Nancy Juhl if you have any questions.

TASTE OF MISSIONS:  Register today for Taste of Missions, a hybrid event that will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2023, at Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon, Wis. Join us in person OR online to get a “taste of missions” no matter where you might be around the world.

The event kicks off with a special worship service where we will commission new home and world missionaries. Sample ethnic cuisine from some of our mission fields while enjoying fellowship and presentations from home and world missionaries alike. View displays, participate in outdoor family-friendly activities, and ask questions about the ups and downs of mission work during panel discussions.

Registration is $15 per person, with children 13 and under attending for free. Those attending in person will receive food tickets to sample ethnic food and will have the ability to purchase additional food from the food trucks. Or attend virtually for free and watch all events via livestream, view additional video updates from missionaries, and try your hand at making one of the many ethnic recipes shared on the website.
