Announcements

We remember those members who are celebrating birthdays this week -- Kent Stoppenhagen, Brandon Buuck, Dawn Buuck, Nathan Buuck, Kari Heckman, Jill Blomenberg and Chad Fuhrmann. May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.

We remember Andy Buuck who has now returned home to recuperate, and also Louise Fuhrmann, who is a patient at Adams County Memorial Hospital. May the Great Physician grant health and strength to him and all who are in need of His presence in their lives.

We also remember in our prayers, the family of Ervin and Velma Schuller, due to the loss of their son-in-law this past week; may the God of Comfort be with them as they mourn his passing.

Concerned about internet pornography? The Bible says, "Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you" (James 4:7). Hear Dr. Wallace Schulz's Lutheran Hour message, "Stand Up Against Evil", on The Lutheran Hour. The show airs on WOWO at 7:35 a.m. (8:05 a.m. on 92.7 FM).

Listen to next week's program, "Starving for Love." Eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia have been on the rise in recent years. The media reinforces the notion that size matters. The smaller you are, the more attractive you are. But how thin is too thin? What price are we paying for this attitude?

Mark your calendars, bring your family, and enjoy be "cornfused!"
