We remember those members who will celebrate birthdays this week – Larry Hitzfield, Payton James Lengerich (his first), James Fuhrmann, Linda Conrad, Meri Everett, Travis Hockemeyer, and Mark Jackson.  May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless them.

May the Great Physician grant health and strength to all who are in need of His presence in their lives.     

We rejoice with Tyler and Julie (Buuck) Lehman on the birth of their second son, Christian Adler, on Saturday, June 23.  We pray that the Good Shepherd will keep an ever-watchful eye on this most precious of His lambs.

Included in this morning’s bulletin is our weekly study guide, “Time in the Word.”  This week’s theme is “The Christ of the Christian.”

Tune in to the Lutheran Hour next Sunday.  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. (Ohio times).  The program airs Sunday at 8:05 a.m. on WZBD (92.7 FM) and again at 3:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on 1090 AM.

Don’t want to cook next week after the Voters’ Meeting?  Do you like barbecued chicken?  You are in luck.  The 8th graders will again sponsor a dinner on Sunday, July 8.   You can go to our Quarterly Voters’ Meeting and then pick up your chicken.  Presale tickets are available today at the cost of $4 for half a chicken.   Get you tickets from Sara Blomenberg, Emily Conrad, Kari Heckman, or Megan Selking.  You may also wish to give them a call this week if you missed them this morning to reserve your tickets.  The 8th graders appreciate your support of this fundraiser.

The Men’s Fastpitch Softball League is sponsoring a golf outing on July 14 at the Grey Goose.  It will be four-man Florida scramble with a 7 a.m. shotgun start at a cost of $45 per person.  Payment would be appreciated two weeks prior to the tournament.  Please contact Dale Gallmeyer if you have any questions or want to participate in this outing.

The LWML will continue their ingathering through August 12.  You may still bring items to church and place them in the boxes in either entrance way.  A list of needed items is posted in the entranceway.  One item needs to be added to that list.  Christian children’s books, in good condition, are also needed.

Please remember that Sunday, July 8, is our Quarterly Voters’ Meeting.  The meeting will be held following our worship service that morning.   (Note:  All financial reports should be in the church office no later than 8:00 a.m. on Friday, July 6.)

The LWML will have their quarterly meeting in the church basement on Tuesday, July 10, beginning at 7:30 p.m.  The guest speaker will be Jane Mason.  She will share her experiences teaching in Novsibirsk, Russia.  All are invited to attend.  If you took home baby blankets to complete and haven’t yet brought them to church, please bring them with you to this meeting.

Attendance:  Sunday Worship Service    195.
