Statement of Communion Practice

We believe that in the Lord’s Supper we receive the true Body and Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in, with, and under the bread and wine.  We welcome to our Altar all who share this belief and are fellow members of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.  If you are communing with us for the first time, please speak to one of the Deacons or Pastor Dahling.

We thank all those who enhanced our worship service this morning with their musical gifts.  It has truly made our worship service more memorable.

We remember our members who are celebrating birthdays this week—Jerry Bultemeyer, Jill Baumann, Grace Iwen, Joy Erxleben, Teri Conrad, Brittany Franke, Jack Reiff, Meghann Manley, Deb Miller, and Tom Buuck.  We also remember in our prayers our Wyneken kindergarten teacher, Rae Fuhrmann, Kristin Scheumann who teaches at Northwest Elementary in the North Adams system, and Becky Blomenberg, one of our Sunday School teachers.   May our loving Savior direct, bless, and guide their lives.

May the Great Physician grant health and strength to all who are in need of His healing hand.  We especially remember in our prayers Shirley Witte, Helen Erxleben, Mark Jackson, Charlotte Conrad (Becky DeKoninck’s mother), Derek Shoaf (Evelyn Keuneke’s great-nephew), Gemila Rabel, our Wyneken librarian, who will have surgery this week, and Eileen Miller (sister of Jim & Jerry Bultemeyer and Rosie Bultemeier).

We rejoice with Andrew & Monica Schaefer who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary today.  We also remember Tom & Carol Brandt who are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary today.  May the Lord continue to be at the center of their homes and shower His blessings upon them.

We also remember those who are serving our country—Brian Moeller who is in Iraq, Jason Putteet, Cam Koldyke (Audra’s husband), Josh Colwell (Tiffany’s husband), Mike Brandt, Justin Grant (Shirley Buuck’s nephew) who is in Afghanistan, Cody Kiess, grandson of Gene and Irene Kiess, who is undergoing training in Texas, and Aaron Allen and Tony Hempel, Lucile Stoppenhagen’s grandsons, who are both in Iraq.  Tony recently received the Bronze Star and the Medal of Honor.  May the Lord protect and guide them in their missions.

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

The Adult Bible Class will continue to study Bible stories from the Old Testament.  There will be no class today (Easter) or next Sunday (Quarterly Voters’ Meeting).  On the 22nd we will look at Belshazzar.  The handwriting is on the wall.  Do you understand the message?  We review the original event as recorded in Daniel 5.

Tune in to the Lutheran Hour which 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.   The program is also broadcast 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. on Sunday.  Lutheran Hour can also be heard on WOWO (1190 AM) on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m.  Tune in! 

On Worship for Shut Ins today’s message is “Christ is Risen” from Exodus 14:15 by Rev. Ken Klaus, a speaker for the Lutheran Hour. Christ is Risen!  We live in a world that believes there are differences in schools, cars, and underarm deodorants, but thinks all religions are the same.  Christianity is unique because “Christ is Risen!”  Next Sunday, Rev. Richard Koehneke’s message will be “Peace for Our Fears” from John 20:19.  Rev. Koehneke serves Holy Cross in Ft. Wayne.  You can tune in to Worship for Shut Ins on Sunday mornings at 6:30 a.m. on WPTA-TV Channel 21, on Digital 33.2 & Satellite 252 on Sunday mornings at 8 a.m., or on Comcast Cable Channel 55 on Sunday and Monday afternoons at 4 p.m.

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?  

Plan on attending our Quarterly Voters’ Meeting that will be held following the worship service next Sunday, April 15.  Hear the reports from our various Boards and Committees.  The Planning Committee will share some information with us on the tentative plans for expansion.  Your input is important!

Board of Stewardship’s Food for Thought – In His Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches that our heavenly Father expects moral behavior from His people.  Moreover, He expects that behavior to be motivated by proper motives and attitudes.  “Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us” (1 Peter 2:12).  God is looking for us to do the proper things not because we want to please others, but so that He may be glorified.  Paul wrote, “We are not trying to please men but God, Who tests our hearts “ (I Thessalonians 2:4b).  As redeemed people, we strive to do right, because God deserves nothing less from us.

We thank the Decorating Committee for the time they have put in to place the Easter Garden in church this year.  We also thank those who have placed flowers and/or plants in church today for our Easter garden.  You may take your plants home following the festival service.

The chapel offerings for the last quarter of school will be given to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, specifically our sister school, St. Paul’s Lutheran School in New Orleans, Louisiana.  St. Paul’s had over $2 million in damage to their church and school with over 70% of their students losing their homes and their parents losing their jobs.  The school reopened in October 2005 with an enrollment of 24 students (down from 174).  By the end of 2006, their enrollment had climbed to 144, but many of these students are from the public school system because their schools were totally destroyed.  St. Paul’s has spent over $70,000 so far this year in tuition assistance, with an additional $30,000 needed.  However, they have no money left for assistance.  Please keep St. Paul and its families in your prayers and prayerfully consider how you can help this ministry.

Market Day orders can be picked up on Thursday, April 12, in the old gym from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Mrs. Gemila Rabel, Wyneken’s head librarian, will be undergoing surgery this week.  During her recovery, she will not be able to be at the Scholastic Book Fair scheduled for April 29 – May 4.  Parents, your help is needed.  If you would be willing to sign up to help set up the Fair, run the Fair, work at the Fair, or help pack up, your assistance would be very much appreciated.  A sign-up sheet will be in the school office.  Please look over your calendars and see how and when you can help her out.  Thanks in advance!

Keep Sunday, April 22, open on your calendar.  On that day we will be honoring Dean Wass and his 25 years in the teaching ministry.  A luncheon and short program will take place (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.).

The final PTL meeting for this school year will be held on Monday, April 16, at 7 p.m.  Election of officers, old and new business, and next year’s budget will be on the agenda.  Attend this meeting and find out how you can become more involved with your child’s school!

Children who will be attending Wyneken’s kindergarten need to attend the North Adams Kindergarten Round Up on Thursday, April 26, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Northwest Elementary School in Decatur.  If your child is five before August 1, 2007, they are eligible to be in kindergarten for the 2007-2008 school year.  Please bring your child’s immunization records, birth certificate, and social security number.  If you are unable to attend the round-up, an information packet will be available at Wyneken.  This is information you must have before you child can enroll in school!

A volunteer list of those willing to do some of the small projects that need to be completed every now and then at Wyneken is being compiled.  If you would be willing to help, please contact one of our School Board members—Randy Everett, Duane Kiess, or Scott Hormann.  Thanks!

Make-up days have been scheduled.  School will now be held on May 30, May 31, June 1, and June 4.  Please mark your calendars accordingly.  Eighth grade graduation has also been changed from Thursday, May 24, to Thursday, May 31.  Preble will be hosting the graduation service at 7 p.m. on the 31st.

Registration forms were mailed before spring break.  If you have not received one, please call the school office as soon as possible.  The enrollment forms are to be returned by April 13 to avoid a $25 late fee.  This fee only applies to returning families, not families new to the school.

Don’t forget to save your box tops and Campbell’s labels and turn them in to school.  Please look at the expiration date on your Scott’s ABC’s for Education receipt and get them into school on a timely basis.  Thanks!

Our current 7th grade class is beginning the process of fundraising for their Washington, DC class trip.  Watch for information concerning their spring flower sale.  Nelson’s chicken and ribs will be available on Mother’s Day.  Chicken ($5 per half) and rib ($6 per one-half slab) sales will begin on April 13 and continue through May 6.  Gunnar Cale and Ethan Lichtle are the two Friedheim students who attend Wyneken so make sure you see them in the coming weeks to make your purchases!
