Announcements for the Week of July 21, 2024

WE WELCOME OUR GUESTS:  We are glad to have you worship with us today. We ask our guests to please sign our guest register.  If you have any questions, please ask any member or Pastor. 

WE THANK:  The Lord for the message from God’s Word that retired Pastor Mark Hannemann shared with us today and for leading us in worship this morning.  We continue to wish both Pastor and Bonnie the Lord’s richest blessings! 

IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE: that is interested in learning more about Salem, please give contact information to Pastor Doletzky. 

EVANGELISM THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK:  Today we heard, When Jesus stepped out of the boat, he saw a large crowd. His heart went out to them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. He began to teach them many things. (Mark 6:34).  Jesus had a heart for the people who were lost.  What did he do?  He taught them.  We have been given the precious truths from God’s Word to share with the lost, truths that are needed more than anything.  What an incredible honor God has given to you!  The honor of sharing the life giving Word of God! 

THOSE TO KEEP IN OUR PRAYERS:  Tim Bruce, Judy Chylek, Barb Lehman, Mary Hupy, Bill Herbst Sr, Dave Mlostek, Pastor Dick Winters, Judy Wright, Mary Porath, and 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. 

NO BIBLE CLASS TODAY:  Next week the plan will be to get to the end of chapter 9.  This chapter deals with the question, “Why are some saved and others are not?”  

NO SUMMER SUNDAY SCHOOL TODAY:  Summer Sunday School will continue next week, July 28th.

THANK YOU:  We give thanks to the Lord who moved the hearts of our members to give $902.00 to the Kuehl and Henselin families who lost loved ones in the fire on June 30th.  Please continue to keep them in your prayers.

HELP NEEDED:  Today after late worship, Ken Evans would like some help moving things in the fellowship hall and the classrooms because he will be working to strip and wax the tile floors in each area.  Plans are to get the floors done between July 21st and July 28th.  The goal is to be done and have everything ready by worship on July 28th.   Thanks for your help in advance.

VOTERS’ MEETING:  Our Quarterly Voters’ Meeting for July will be on Sunday, July 28th after late worship.  We will have reports on the items we are working on and talk about future projects to consider.  We especially encourage all our voters to come, but everyone is welcome.  There will be a light lunch served for those attending the meeting. 

REMINDERS FOR VOLUNTEERS: If you have a volunteer job here at Salem, i.e., ushering, cleaning, communion clean up, mowing, etc, you will be receiving email reminders of the dates for your turn.  Please keep an eye out for these reminders and if they happen to go to your junk box, please mark it as ‘not junk’ so it will go to your regular inbox in the future.  If you have any questions, please see Luke Gilner. 

PASTOR ON VACATION:  Pastor Doletzky and Carrie will be on vacation from Tuesday, July 16th until Wednesday, July 24th.  Pastor Mark Hannemann will be on call for any emergency. You can call him at 906-241-5097.  There will be no Bible Class on the 21st, but there will be class on the 28th.
