EASTER FESTIVAL SERVICE

We are happy that you joined us this morning in our celebration of the glorious resurrection of our Lord.  It is always best to share joy with other people.  We invite you to return often and share in our celebration in the new life of this Easter season.  If you arc communing with us this morning, please fill out a communion registration card.  These cards may be found in either entranceway of the church.  Please place the cards in the offering plate or give them to one of the Deacons.  Thank you.

Announcements

We remember those members who are celebrating birthdays this week -Ben Miller, Rich Scheumann, Nick George, Lean Heckmann and Joy Erxleben.  We also remember our Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten teacher Rea Fuhrmann in our prayers.  May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.

We remember in our prayers our seminarian, Ernie Muller, who remains a patient at Parkview Hospital as he continues radiation/chemotherapy treatments.  We also remember Rosa Hartmann who has been at Adams County Memorial Hospital as well as Andy Buuck is undergoing testing and consultation with medical specialists.  The prophet Isaiah reminds us that by the Savior’s strips we are healed.  According, the gracious will of the Savior may these and the Savior’s mercy and care enshroud any other that we remember this day.

Once again we have been given the privilege of sharing with you another Holy Week and Easter.  The Loaf has truly blessed us in many significant and incredible ways.  We are Easter people.  May we continue to experience the Lord's presence in our lives.  Yours in Christ, Pr. Dahling and family.

We wish to thank the members or the LYF and their families for their service in providing this morning's Easter breakfast.  Your kindness is greatly appreciated.

We remember in our prayers our seventh grade teacher Marvin Drier who has received a Call from Trinity Lutheran School in St. Joseph, Michigan.  May the Lord of the Church direct him as he deliberates the Lord's direction in his ministry.
