We remember our members who will celebrate birthdays this week—Adam Buuck, Zac Lichtle, Sherri Johnson, Andrea Johnson, Alicia Drier, Aaron Bergman, David Brandt, Daniel Linnemeier, Jon Gallmeyer, and Mike Selking.  We also remember in our prayers our Wyneken 6th grade teacher, Dean Wass, and Sandy Blomenberg who teaches at St. Peter-Immanuel.  May our loving Savior direct, bless, and guide their lives.

We thank Rev. David Dubbelde, Executive for Missions, Indiana District LC-MS, for delivering this morning’s sermon.  The flags in church this morning represent the various nationalities that have come to Indiana and are ministered to through various missionary outreaches.  We pray for the continued success of our missions program.

May the Great Physician grant health and strength to all who are in need.  We especially remember in our prayers Barb Geyer who is recovering from knee surgery at Adams County Memorial Hospital, Andrea Braun, Sean Sielschhott’s niece, who is a patient at an Indianapolis hospital, and Bill Baker, Shelly Kiefer’s grandfather, who is at Adams County Memorial Hospital.

We remember in our prayers Delmar & Joyce Heckman who will celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary on Saturday, June 5.  May the Lord continue to bless this couple.

We remember those who are currently serving in the military as well as those who have served in the past as this is Memorial Day weekend.  May we never forget the sacrifices made to ensure our freedom and safety.  We pray that the Lord will guard over those who guard over us.

Included in this morning’s bulletin is our weekly study guide, “Time in the Word.”   This week’s theme is “The Blessed Trinity Blesses.”

Tune in to the Lutheran Hour next Sunday.  The show airs on Sunday on WLW (700) out of Cincinnati at 7 a.m. and on Van Wert stations WERT (1220) and WKSD (99.7 FM) at 10:30 a.m.  (With the time change, you may wish to double-check the times of the Ohio programs.)  The program airs on Sunday at 8:05 a.m. on WZBD (92.7 FM) and then on WFCV (1090 AM) at 3:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Next Sunday, June 6, two worship opportunities are available to you.  The early-bird service will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a regular service at 9:00 a.m.  Holy Communion will be celebrated at both services.  The Wyneken 8th graders will be singing at the 9:00 a.m. service.

Stewardship Committee’s Food for Thought:  Do you remember the childhood song:  “I just want to be a sheep, Baa, Baa, Bass, Baa?”  One of the verses says, “I don’t want to be a Pharisee because they are not fair, you see.”  The Pharisees were much like many of us today.  Consider this verse:    “The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things, and they were scoffing at Him.” – Luke 16:14

Have you ever tuned in to “Issues, Etc.” that airs LIVE on Sunday evenings from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. on WLYV (1450 AM) in Fort Wayne and on a tape-delay basis on Sunday evenings from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. on WFCV (1090 AM) in Fort Wayne?   

The men’s softball team has two games this week--Union at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 1, and Decatur at 8:30 p.m. Friday, June 4.  All games this season will be played at Hoagland.  See Steve Conrad for a schedule.  New players and past players are always welcome to join!

Ladies, do you know how much a few simple items can mean to a woman trying to recover from an addiction to alcohol or drugs?  As part of the ingathering at the LWML Convention in June, we will be collecting some of the items needed by the Hope Recovery Program for Women in Lexington, Kentucky.  Items that would be beneficial include house slippers, wristwatches, phone calling cards, new greeting cards (can be Christian), brushes, and combs.  Perhaps, you like to quilt.  A second program being helped is the St. John’s Lutheran Church Quilt Project.  They are in need of baby quilts (36” x 45” backed with flannel) and adult-sized quilts (45” x 60” or 60” x 60”).  There are boxes in either entranceway of the church for your donations or you may give them to Marlene Conrad.  We will be collecting items through June 20. 

The Adams county Thrivent Chapter is participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life that will be held at Bellmont High School on June 18 and 19 from 6 p.m. Friday until noon on Saturday.  All money donated by June 7 will be matched by Thrivent (make checks payable to American Cancer Society).  Collection containers are in the entranceways.  Contact Leesa Heckman, Kris Blomenberg, or Mike Heckman if you have any questions.  Additional information is included in the June newsletter.

Council Members:  The minutes from the May 4, 2004 Council Meeting are in your slots in the entranceway of the church.  You may pick your minutes up following the worship service this morning.  The next Council Meeting will be held on Tuesday, June 1, at 8 p.m. 

The Lutheran Home Auxiliary is sponsoring a chicken barbecue on Friday, June 11 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Tickets are $5.50 (presale) and will cost $6 at the door.  If you are interested in purchasing tickets, please see Donna Hileman, our congregational representative.
