The Confession (in unison)

 

 

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against You alone.  We have not loved You with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.  For the sake of Your Son, Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us, so that we can be the children You would have us to be.

 

 

 

The Absolution

 

 

Come, receive the power of His Holy Spirit, which cleanses, heals, and empowers each one of us to a new life.  Wake up afresh, to be cleansed from all of your sin.  You have been forgiven.  Now you are free to live for the reason you were created.  In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior and King, we look to You today, as we pledge ourselves anew to the faith and work of Your kingdom.  Forgive our failures of the past, and enable us by the power of Your Holy Spirit to lift anew our hearts and our minds, that we may constantly serve You and love You, as You have served and loved us.  Dear Savior, accept our hearts this day, and make them always Yours.  Amen.

The Pastor

Rev. Daniel F. Dahling

As has been the tradition, the confirmation class has chosen the sermon text for this morning.  Pastor Dahling’s sermon, “In Christ I Can Do All Things,” is from Philippians 4:13—“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

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. 

+  Soli Deo Gloria  +

We remember our members who are celebrating birthdays this week—Gilbert Hartmann, Allison Hormann, Brittany Bergdall, Anna Buuck, Sandy Blomenberg, Luke Bultemeier, Jon Buuck, Chris Gorman, James Gorman, Ashley Manley, Floyd Thieme, and Ann Crosby.  We also remember in our prayers our Wyneken cooks, Sharon Franke, Shelly Kiefer, and Marcia Selking, Christine Bultemeier who teaches at Heritage Junior High, and Pam Everett and Emma Lichtle, two of our Sunday School helpers.   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 Grace Scheumann who has returned home from Riley, Helen Erxleben, Mark Jackson who has returned home, Hildegard Kiefer who is now a resident of Woodcrest, Evie Keuneke who is a patient at Adams Memorial, Barb Geyer who was a patient at Adams Memorial, Charlotte Conrad (Becky DeKoninck’s mother), Eugene Meyer (Tammy Dahling’s uncle, who is a patient at St. Joe), Kent Hart (friend of Mitch & Angie Baumann), Shirley Fuhrmann (sister-in-law of Ken and Stan Fuhrmann), and Derek Shoaf (Evelyn Keuneke’s great nephew).

We rejoice with Richard & Margaret Buuck who will celebrate their 64th wedding anniversary on Tuesday, May 8, and with Raymond and Maxine Schultz (Gregg Schultz’s parents) who are celebrating their 60th anniversary today.  May the Lord continue to be at the center of their homes and shower them with His blessings.

We remember the nine young people who will be a part of the Rite of Confirmation this morning.  We pray that Brandan, Brittany, Ashtyn, Matthew, Allison, Jessica, Derek, Cecelia, and Alex remain strong in their faith, continuing to grow in it, and be a light to others.

We 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, our reservists, Josh, Zach, and Jacob Stoppenhagen and Brian Journay (grandson of Dick & Alma Miller), 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 deployed in Iraq.  May the Lord protect and guide them in their missions.

We remember in our prayers the friends and family of Sherry Strasser, Jim Fuhrman’s & Shirley Hormann’s niece, who was called to her heavenly home this past week.  Services were in Nebraska.  We also remember the friends and family of Donald Garton, Kristin Scheumann’s grandfather, who was called to be with his Lord and was given Christian burial last Monday. JoAnn Baumann’s mother, Ione Jackson, was also called to be with her Lord with services this past week.   May the God of all comfort be with those who mourn, reminding them of that great day when they will be reunited with their loved ones in heaven.

The Lord’s blessings upon Troy Scroggins, our former fieldworker, who will begin his ministry in Topeka, Kansas.  May our loving Savior guide and direct Troy as he begins his work as a minister.

This is National Police, Rescue Workers, and First Responder’s Week.  Many in our congregation are employed in these very important jobs.  We remember them in our prayers, thanking them for their service, and asking for God’s continued guidance and protection for them as they do their duty.

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

The Adult Bible Class will not meet again until Mother’s Day, May 13, when we will again study Bible stories from the Old Testament.  On the 13th we will look at Daniel in the lion’s den.  On which hill are you willing to die? Daniel could name for us several. How did Daniel come to understand that it was an angel that closed the lion’s mouth?  The classic story of Daniel’s faith in God’s providence is reviewed today.

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 by Rev. Michael Salemink of St. James Lutheran Church in Lafayette, Indiana is “The Master’s Hand” from Revelation 21:1-5.  It is a message of hope and comfort to those whose hearts and bodies are broken with guilt and pain.  Jesus Christ makes them brand new.  Next Sunday’s message, “Genuine Christianity,” from John 4:23 will be delivered by Dr. Walter A. Maier III from Concordia Theological Seminary 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?  

Today’s door collection will benefit the Gideons.  We pray for the continued success of this ministry.

Next Sunday, we will have a door collection in honor of the 65th anniversary of the LWML’s “Serving the Lord with Gladness.”  This offering will be divided with 30% going to the LWML Endowment and 70% going to the Missionary Children’s Education fund through LCMS World Missions.  The LWML Endowment is funds set aside for LWML ministries.  Many of our missionary families have school-aged children who, when returning to the States and school here, need to attend special schools overseas or have volunteer teachers from America to teach them on their mission field.  The Missionary Children’s Education fund provides tuition, school curricula, and American-style education to missionary children around the world and will give these children a quality education and prepare them for re-entry into the American school system.

Our area pastors will be at a conference this Monday and Tuesday, May 7 & 8.  We pray the Lord’s blessings upon this conference.  Pastor will be commuting to and from this conference on a daily basis.  We also pray for the Lord’s protection as they travel to and from the conference.

Board of Stewardship’s Food for Thought – As faithful stewards, we don’t see our stewardship lives as a never-ending list of chores that God gives us to do.  Rather we willingly and joyfully seek to do His will as we serve and follow Him.  Out of love and gratitude, we are compelled to use our lives and blessings in ways that give God honor and glory.  As the Apostle Paul prayed for the Colossians, we pray:  “And we pray this in order that [we] may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God” (Colossians 1:10).

A survey concerning possible expansion of our church was mailed to our voting membership (communicant members 18 years of age or older) on Monday, April 16.  If you didn’t receive one, there are a few copies of this survey in either entranceway of the church.  Please return your survey today by giving it to one of the Deacons or to a member of the Planning Committee (Tom Blomenberg, Stan Fuhrmann, or Mike Werling).  We appreciate your taking your time to complete the survey and for giving us feedback.  Thanks!

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.
