We remember the family and friends of Tom Colchin who was called to his heavenly home last Saturday, May 22, and was given Christian burial on Wednesday, May 26, as well as the family and friends of Dr. Stanley Wissman who was called to his heavenly home on Monday, May 24, and was given Christian burial on Thursday, May 27. May the God of all comfort be with those who mourn and remind them of that day when they will be reunited with their loved one in heaven.

We remember those members who are celebrating birthdays this week -- Adam Buuck, Zac Lichtle, Sherri Johnson, Andrea Johnson, Nevin Bultemeier, Alicia Drier, Aaron Bergman, David Brandt, Daniel Linnemeier, Jon Gallmeyer, and Mike Selking. We also remember our Wyneken faculty, staff, students, and parents, in our prayers as this is the final week of school. May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.

We remember Leona Worth in our prayers as she is a patient at Caylor-Nickel Clinic in Bluffton after having undergone knee surgery. May the Great Physician grant health and strength to her and all who are in need of His presence in their lives.

Youth ushers for June are Dan Buuck and Sam Conrad.

The flowers on the altar are to the glory of God and in honor of Elfurt & Adele Blomenberg's 50th wedding anniversary which was yesterday, May 29. The flowers were placed in church with love and admiration by their children and grandchildren. May the Lord continue to bless them.

We thank Seminarian Kevin Meyer for delivering this morning's sermon. May the Lord bless him as he continues to study for the ministry. Pastor Dahling is preaching at Lake James Chapel this morning and will be returning home tomorrow.

The congregation is invited to attend the Sunday School picnic next Sunday, June 6, following the second service. Cookie donations for the picnic would be appreciated and can be brought to church next Sunday.

As we has been our custom the last few years, there are two services offered on the first Sunday of the month in June, July, August, and September. Next Sunday, June 6, will be the first of these services. The early-bird service will begin at 7:30 a.m. followed by our regular 9:00 a.m. service. Holy communion will be celebrated in both services.

The congregation is invited to attend the 8th grade graduation service this Thursday, June 3. The service begins at 8:00 p.m. Holy communion will be celebrated. Following the worship service, there will be reception for the graduates in the Parish Hall.

Tune in to The Lutheran Hour next Sunday. The broadcast time is 7:35 a.m. on WOWO and at 8:05 a.m. on 92.7 FM. Our reactions to people of different races and languages may suggest that God's kingdom is "mine" and not "Thine." If your witness is to ring true, let "Thine is the Kingdom" be a truth in the forefront of all you do. Hear Dr. Dale Meyer's message, "Thine is the Kingdom," based on Galatians 2:19-20.

Lutheran Hour Ministries sponsors the "Woman to Woman" program. It can be heard on WLAB (88.3 FM) at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday or 11:00 a.m. on WLYV (1450 AM) on Sunday. Celebrate the ups, downs and all-around of friendship. How good are your friends? Can you be a better friend? What is the glue that holds friends together? Listen to "Friends" on "Woman to Woman."
