Zion-Friedheim Evangelical Lutheran Church

We welcome you to Friedheim on this Mission Sunday. May remember the theme--"One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism"--as we listen to the Word of God today. If you are a visitor this morning, please take a moment to sign one of our guest registries which are located in both entry ways. Please worship with us again soon.

The Lord's Supper: "In this Sacrament, the Forgiveness of sins is not only preached, proclamed, and promised, but here at the same time Christ gives, His Christians, His Very Body and Blood as a pledge of it" (Walther). As we receive His gift, we ask any guests desiring to commune to speak with the Pastor before the service. Because of the Bible's witness to doctrinal oneness by those receiving the Sacrament together, the churches of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod promise to practice closed communion.

We remember our members celebrating birthdays this week -- Margaret Kiefer, Corbin Bultemeier, Hollie Hormann, Ludella Conrad, Cheryl Kiefer, Kimberly Fuhrmann, Christine Bultemeier, Katrina Robinson, Matt Buuck, Gerhard Kiefer, and Roz Schamerloh. We also remember, in our prayers, our fourth grade teacher, Heidi Werling, and our public school teacher, Dave Miller. May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.

May the Great Physician grant health and strength to all who are in need of His presence in their lives. We especially remember, in our prayers this morning, Andy Buuck, who is a patient at University Hospital in Cincinnati.

We also remember, in our prayers, Jon Kaehr and Mendi Douglas, who were married at the Lord's altar yesterday afternoon. May the Lord bless this couple as they begin their life together.
