We remember our members celebrating birthdays this week -- Adele Blomenberg, Allen Buuck, Wava Lichtle, Chris Lichtle, Tyler Stoppenhagen, and Esther Gallmeyer.    We also remember one of our 6th grade teachers, Dean  Wass, as  well as Floyd Thieme, our Sunday School superintendent, in our prayers.  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 remember in our prayers Jim & Ruth Heckman who will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, February 7.  May the Lord continue to bless this couple.

Included in this morning's bulletin is a study guide ("Time in the Word") for this week.  Please take a few moments each day to go over this information.  The theme for the week is "The Change in Human Values."

Listen to  The Lutheran Hour.  The show airs on Sunday on WLW (700) out of  Cincinnati at 7:00 a.m. and on Van Wert stations WERT (1220) and WKSD (99.7 FM) at 10:30 a.m.  The program can also be heard on Sunday at 8:05 a.m. on WBZD (92.7 FM) and at  3:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on WFCV (1090).  Tune in to hear Dr. Meyer's sermon, "Please Pass a Good Word."  Many people want to improve the quality of family life, and rightly so.  Using I Peter 4:9-11, Dr. Meyer suggests a simple way you can do that.  

If you didn't pick up your Annual Report/Membership Directory, please do so this morning. 

The Altar Guild will meet on Monday, February 12, at 8:00 p.m. in the church basement.
