We remember those members who are celebrating birthdays this week -- Sam Baumann, Denise Conrad, Devin Sielschott, Joe Gorman, Mrs. Jessica Linnemeier, Kevin Schultz, Cynthia Bultemeier, Glenn Buuck, Calvin Buuck, and Leona Worth. May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.

We remember Leona Worth in our prayers as she remains a patient at Caylor-Nickel Clinic in Bluffton after having undergone knee surgery, Julie Heckman who was a patient at Lutheran Hospital but has returned home, Louise Fuhrmann who is a patient at Adams County Memorial Hospital, and Staci Kable who remains at Parkview Hospital following a bicycle/car accident. May the Great Physician grant health and strength to them and all who are in need of His presence in their lives.

The congregation is invited to attend the Sunday School picnic today following the second service.

The flowers on the altar this morning are to the glory of God and in honor of Don and Sara Bultemeier who will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary tomorrow, June 7. The flowers were placed in church with love and admiration by their children and grandson. May the Lord continue to bless them.

As has been our custom during the summer months, we will be reviewing the chief parts of Luther's Small Catechism. This morning we will review the first three commandments.

There will be adult Bible class this morning following the 9:00 a.m. service. We will be discussing the book of Daniel. The Sunday Bible class will meet throughout the summer.

The congregation is invited to attend the installation service of Pastor Marvin Hinkle at St. James Lutheran Church in Logansport, Indiana this afternoon at 3:30 p.m. The church is located at 430 Ninth Street in Logansport.

In the past, conquerors sometimes forced their subjects to accept Christianity. Two churches in New York City, Christ Lutheran Church and Glory Lutheran Church, demonstrate how God's kingdom conquers in the world today. Hear Dr. Dale Meyer's Lutheran Hour message, "A Little Bit of Space, A Little Bit of Help, and the Blessing of the Lord," next Sunday. The show airs on WOWO at 7:35 a.m. and at 8:05 a.m. on 92.7 FM.

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. Zig Ziglar, renowned motivational speaker, discusses his role as father and public figure and emphasizes that while all dads may not be heroes, they are role models. Listen to the Father's Day Special, "Dad: Hero or Role Model?" on "Woman to Woman."

Are you missing bowls, pans, or containers? Take a moment to look in the church basement on the filing cabinet and take your items home with you.

The men's softball team has one game scheduled for this week as well as a mid-season tournament game. On Wednesday, June 9, they will play Soest at 7:00 p.m. at Hoagland and on Saturday, June 12, they have a tourney game at Hoagland (time unavailable when the bulletin was printed).

The Morning Glories are taking a summer break; however, another workday is being planned for Tuesday, June 8, beginning at 9:00 a.m. to work on getting materials together for rag rugs. You may wish to pack a lunch and come for the day (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) or just come for the morning or afternoon. Items needed that day are rotary cutters and mats, scissors, and, of course, willing hands. If you have any old blue jeans you would like to donate to this project, you may bring them to the Parish Hall.

The 7th Annual AAL Lutheran Night at the Wizards will be held on Saturday, July 10, at 7:00 p.m. The Ft. Wayne Wizards will take on the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. Tickets are $5 with all profits from ticket sales given to Lutheran Social Services. For tickets, please contact Tim Blomenberg, Delmar Heckman, Sherril Bradtmueller, or Shirley Hormann by June 13.

AAL, through its gift-matching program, presented a check for $9,580 to Wyneken Memorial Lutheran School. This money was placed in the building/expansion fund and represented AAL member contributions from October to December, 1998. This is an ongoing program that is open to all AAL members. If you wish to participate in this program, there are brochures in either entrance way of the church.

Attention Council Members! There will be a joint meeting of the church councils of Bingen, Preble, and Friedheim on Monday, June 21, at 8:00 p.m. in the Bingen Fellowship Hall. At this meeting proposed plans for the school expansion will be reviewed. All Council members are asked to attend this important meeting.
