Announcements for the Week of April 11, 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.
THOSE TO KEEP IN OUR PRAYERS: Trudy Flath, Mike & Linda Buchanan, Steve Porath, Loretta Pepin, Lisa Nord, and Lee & 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.
EVANGELISM THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Today we heard Jesus, 27Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and look at my hands. Take your hand and put it into my side. Do not continue to doubt, but believe.” 28Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” 29Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:27-29) What a gift the miracle of faith is! Truly we are blessed to believe even if we haven’t seen what Thomas saw! The same powerful message of Jesus’ resurrection is what everyone else needs to have peace. Share Jesus’ death and resurrection.
BIBLE CLASS: As we continue our study of Heaven and Hell, we look that those are the only two destinations in eternity. Today we continue our study on The Bible’s Description of Heaven.
OFFERINGS: The offering plates will not be passed for the foreseeable future. Please place your offering in the offering plates at the back of church near the doors.
CHURCH COUNCIL MEETING DATE CHANGED: The Church Council Meeting for April has been moved to Tuesday, April 13th at 6 p.m. instead of April 6th. Thanks!
LGP MEETING: The April meeting of the LGP will be held next Sunday from 3-5pm. The girls will be having a special Mother – Daughter day which will include making crafts together and other fun activities as they celebrate their Moms this month!
LUTHERAN CHRISTIAN COUNSELING: There is a donor who is willing to provide free Lutheran Christian Counseling through Wisconsin Lutheran Child and Family Service (a WELS organization) to all members of WELS congregations in the U.P. If you, or any of your brothers and sisters in Christ, are going through some type of difficulty or “bump” in the road in of life, and would like some guidance, or some confidential counseling through a secure video connection in the privacy of your home, please contact Pastor Doletzky for more information. Normally such a service would be $75.00 per session.
THE NEW: April Forward in Christ is available to be picked up.
APRIL CALENDAR: is available. Please pick up your copy.
LWMS (Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society): Will hold its Spring Rally on Saturday, April 17th at Zion Lutheran in Peshtigo. Registration will be from 9:30 a.m. – 10 a.m. (Central time). Closing devotion will be at 2:30 p.m. Please bring the pill bottles you have been collecting. Masks are required and social distancing will be observed. Mission Offerings: Make your check payable to Women’s Evening Service Group. Please get your mission offerings to Cam Blakeslee or Kathy Grill. Please let one of those ladies also know if you plan on attending the rally.
– On Sunday, April 11th we will have a free-will offering for the LWMS (Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society). The organization is more than 50 years old and financially aids WELS missions here in the United States and throughout the world. It is supported by our synod, but many of the LWMS missions are not fully funded by regular congregational mission offerings. All monies given go directly to LWMS, the Lake Superior Circuit which our church is a member. Thank you in advance for your generosity to this fine organization.
CENTRAL AFRICA MEDICAL MISSION APRIL UPDATE LETTER: A copy of the April CAMM Monthly Letter can be found on the hallway cabinet by the Christian greeting cards. The April letter is written by CAMM Stateside Committee Chair, Shelly Sievert. Once again, Shelly shares many updates and news on CAMM. CAMM thanks all of you for your faithful support, love, prayers and gifts as we carry out this mission of love for our Risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Prior CAMM Monthly Letters can be found in the orange binder that is also located by the Christian greeting cards. 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.
UPDATED WEBSITE ONLINE: Our website has been updated in many ways. You will be able to visit it at www.salemescanaba.org. Our services are now live-streamed to our website and you will not need to go to Facebook. All videos of the services will be archived there. If you want to watch an archived service on ROKU, go to the search area and search for “Salem Evangelical Escanaba.” Our website logo will appear and you can click on it. Please sign our friendship register. It helps us know if people are watching. We thank the Lord for the ability to share His Word all over the world through our website.
PRECAUTIONS DURING COVID: We are thankful for the air sanitizing system we have in our sanctuary, hallways, and bathrooms. This system kills airborne bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew. Please wash your hands regularly. There is hand sanitizer in the hallway along with face masks and face shields for all who would like added protection. Especially during this time of COVID, if you have any type of sickness or not feeling well, (cold, flu, etc.) please don’t come. This is out of concern for all. This does not apply to allergies. We pray the Lord keep you safe and if you have any questions, please ask Pastor.
AUDIO LOOP: There is an audio loop installed. For all those who use hearing aids, please set them to the “T” setting for T-coil or telephone.
If you know someone that is interested in learning more about Salem, please give their contact information to Pastor Doletzky.
