Announcements for June 27, 2021


WE WELCOME EVERYONE to worship with us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m.

OUR CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Kaden Polt and Cody Gansebom. Next Sunday they will be Kenzie von Rentzell and Ella von Rentzell.

OUR READER for this Sunday is LYF member, Karter Johnson. Next Sunday the reader will be Paul Koehler. Helping with communion next week will be Ed Brummels and Larry Krohn.

ADULT BIBLE CLASS has begun a new series on the book of Judges. The Old Testament book of Judges is very contemporary for our lives today. A repeated phrase in Judges is: “Everyone did what was right in their own eyes,” and that phrase pretty much describes life in the United States today. Join Adult Bible Class to explore how God’s people handled life in similar circumstances to today. In addition, the book of Judges has some very interesting accounts, perhaps, the most humorous story in the Old Testament. See you in Bible Class!

A DIGITAL SIGN is being considered to replace the sign on the NE corner of the church. A poster has been made and is in the back of church this morning. Donations from memorials and/or members is how the sign will be paid for. Any comments or suggestions may be given to the committee members: LaDonna Stanosheck, Randy Pfanstiel and Deb Gutz.
