We remember our members who will celebrate birthdays this week—Karen Buuck, Shirley Buuck, Dale Gallmeyer, Deb Bergman, Ron Buuck, Stephanie Evans, Karly Everett, Anne Hess, Gregg Schultz, Sara Blomenberg, Olga Reifsteck, and Dorothy Werling.  We also remember our Wyneken 2nd grade teacher, Heidi Werling, Mitzi Cale, one of our Sunday School teachers, and Christine Bultemeier who teachers in the public school. 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 life.  We especially remember Jim Crosby who is a patient at Lutheran Hospital.

We remember in our prayers the family and friends of Officer Jerry Wyss, cousin of Denise Conrad, who was called to his heavenly home this past week and was given Christian burial on Saturday, October 27.  May the God of all comfort be with those who mourn and remind them of that great day when they will be reunited with their loved ones in heaven.

We rejoice with Matt Buuck and Kim Smith who will be married this Saturday at Soest.  We pray God’s richest blessings on this couple as they begin their lives together.

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

It’s cleanup time!  Cornfusion III concludes today to the public but we need help to cleanup the area.  All hands, big and small, are welcome on Saturday, November 3, beginning at 8:30 a.m.  There will be plenty to do for all.  (Yes, we realize that is the Indy tourney, as well as a wedding.  We would really appreciate those families not involved in these two events to come to help on Saturday.)

The Morning Glories wish to thank all those who helped with the Glenbrook Bazaar and Bake Sale last weekend.  Without your donations of baked goods, help in transporting items, working the booth, or donations of craft items, the Morning Glories would not be successful.  We raised $1,158.91.  Our next show will be at Hessen Cassel on Saturday, November 10, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  We will be setting up the booth on Friday, November 9, beginning at 5:00 p.m.  If you can help, please contact Marlene Conrad or Shirley Buuck.  No baked items are allowed at this sale.
