We remember our members
who will celebrate birthdays this week – Mike Miller, Frank Buuck, Gene
Kiess, Ruth Armao, Ron Bultemeier, April Erxleben, Drew Heckman, Jacob
Bergman, Gabrielle Brandt, Jamie Selking, Nicholas Linnemeier, and Emma
Buuck (her first birthday). May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and
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, Al Hormann who underwent bypass surgery
last Thursday, and Chris Gorman who had eye surgery in Indianapolis on Friday.
We pray the Lord’s comforting arms be around the family
and friends of Candice Shannon who was called to her heavenly home last Sunday
and was given Christian burial on Wednesday, July 25. May the Lord be with her family during these difficult days
and remind them of that great day when they will be reunited with those they
love in heaven. We also remember
Shelly Kiefer in our prayers as her grandmother, Millie Baker, was called to her
heavenly home last week and was given Christian burial on Thursday, July 26.
May our Lord comfort this family.

in the Word.” This week’s
theme is “Fellowship with the Divine.”
