Jordan Buuck, Kevin Conrad, Candice Shannon, Mike Conrad, Erica Everett,
Brandon Kock, Trevor Baumann, Ted Blomenberg, Shelby Bultemeier, Erin Evans,
Rebecca Evans, and Deb Gallmeyer. 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 especially remember Phyllis Nidlinger, mother of John
Nidlinger, who is in failing health, and Corbin Bultemeier and Bonnie Buuck who
have returned home after brief hospital stays.
We remember in our new Synod President, Rev. Gerald
Kieschnick, formerly president of the Texas District, in our prayers.
We pray that the Lord would guide him and our Synod as well as bless the
work of the church.
The flowers on the altar are to the glory of God and in
loving memory of Katie Heckman and in honor of Drew and Kari Heckman.
The flowers were placed in church by their parents, Jim & Ruth.
May the Lord continue to bless this family.

Mike Werling or Phil Franke know today.

welcome. Work will begin at 8:30

for Cornfusion III? The committee
is in need of hamburger, pop in cans (Pepsi or Coke products), bottled water,

would also be appreciated. You may
bring your donations to the church basement
or contact any member of the Food Committee – Tami Stoppenhagen or Mary
