Announcements for the Week of January 23, 2022

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. 

EVANGELISM THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK:  Today we heard Jesus read from the prophet Isaiah, he anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, 19and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.  (Luke 4:18-19)  Is there anyone like the Lord Jesus?  Is there anyone else who can free us and heal our souls?  Of course not!  Share the Savior who has healing for every hurting soul!  

THOSE TO KEEP IN OUR PRAYERS:  Pastor Doletzky, 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.

ANNUAL VOTERS’ MEETING: Our Annual Voters’ Meeting will be held on Jan 25th at 6:00pm. Please plan on attending, especially the voters, and hear how the previous year went and what is coming for our church in 2022!

CARDS OF SUPORT: Jan Gayan recently finished her second round of radiation and continues with her treatment. Your prayers and cards of support would be great appreciated. Her address is: Janice Gayan   4434 San Lucian Lane     North Fort Meyers FL 33903 

HOUSING FOR PHYSICAL THERAPY STUDENT:  Tess Cederholm, a student at Carroll University, is coming to our area and is looking for temporary housing while she completes an 8 week clinic rotation at OSF. She is hoping to find a WELS member to stay with! If you would like some background and her contact information, please contact Karin Lanaville. 

CENTRAL AFRICA MEDICAL MISSION JANUARY UPDATE LETTER: A copy of the January CAMM Monthly Update Letter can be found on the hallway cabinet by the Christian greeting cards. The January Update Letter was once again written by Lusungu Mwambweye, Clinic Administrator in training at the Lutheran Mobile Clinic in Malawi. It was noted that CAMM is asking for baby bottles, the plastic type in 4 or 8 oz. sizes without nipples. They are seeing more babies on formula recently, mainly due to there being more orphans. These bottles could easily be included with pill bottle shipments. Lotion tubes or bottles of sunscreen are also needed…no metal spray cans as the cans are hard to dispose of and can be dangerous during shipping. Prior CAMM Monthly Letters can be found in the orange binder that is also located by the Christian greeting cards. Donations may be made by check payable to Central Africa Medical Mission and mailed to: WELS/CAMM, P.O. Box 64064, St. Paul, MN 55164-0064. 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.

LGP PINE CAR DERBY: The Lutheran Girl Pioneers would like to invite everyone to participate in an open race during the Pine Car Derby event on Feb 12th. Registration for non LGP cars will be $2 each with the money raised going towards LGP camp fees for the girls this coming summer. Kits can be purchased on Amazon or at Hobby Lobby. The rules for construction can be found on the LGP bulletin board in the Sunday school hallway.  We hope you’ll join us for this fun event!!
