We remember those members who are celebrating birthdays this week -- Nicholas Linnemeier, Abagail Bultemeier, Hildegard Kiefer, Dale Heckman, Monica Manley, Linda Buuck, Carma Conrad, Dave Conrad, Rich Hartmann, Andrea Jackson, Bill Fuhrman, Dave Houser, Irene Kiess, Dennis Scheumann, Cindy Houser, Jason Scheumann, Josh Scheumann, Erv Schuller, Madison Stoppenhagen, and DeWayne Gallmeyer. We also remember our Board of Education, especially Friedheim's members, Jim Heckman, Kim Schamerloh, and Stan Stoppenhagen, as registration begins this week. May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.

We remember in our prayers this morning Dick Hileman who is home following surgery, Georgianna Alvarez (Addy Schuller's sister) who is in an Ohio hospital recovering from burns, Alan Bergdall (great-grandson of Olga Reifsteck) who is a patient at Parkview, and Andy Buuck and Ernie Muller who continue under doctors' care. May the Great Physician grant health and strength to them and all who are in need of His presence in their lives.

Bible Class will meet in the church basement after today's worship service.

The Bible records several times when Jesus let His wrath be seen. These incidents teach how Jesus wants us to live our lives. Hear Dr. Dale Meyer's Lutheran Hour message, "Seeing the Savior Sore," on The Lutheran Hour. The show airs on WOWO at 7:35 a.m. (8:05 a.m. on 92.7 FM) on Sunday.

Produce of all kinds are needed for our produce market. We are open through the week as well as on weekends. Bring your produce to the "Cornfusion" sight. Place it in the cooler wagon or on the tables. Call Teri Conrad (724-8464) if you have any questions.
