We remember our members who are celebrating birthdays this week—Melina Baumann, Joyce Heckman, Kaitlyn Jenkins, Lucile Stoppenhagen, Julie Adkison, Tonya Bobay, Robert Buuck, Jon Kaehr, Rhonda Linnemeier, Ashlyn Walker, Cindy Berning, Mark Buuck, Linda Keuneke, Kristie Schlemmer, Jason Werling, Irene Bultemeier, Richard Hileman, Emma Lichtle, Ava Jane Roemer (her first!), Grace Scheumann, Corbin Bultemeier, and Hollie Hormann.  We also remember Stan Stoppenhagen, our 5th & 6th grade Sunday School teacher, Pam Brewer, our Wyneken 6th grade teacher, and Leslie Lawson who teaches in the East Allen system.    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 Calvin Buuck, Kelly Baumann (Trevor’s wife), Karen Johnson (Leslie Lawson’s mother), and Troy Sinar (Dick & Donna Hileman’s nephew).

We rejoice with Jeff & Tricia (Bultemeyer) Ripley on the birth of their son, Colin J, who was born on Saturday, October 4.  May the Good Shepherd keep an ever-watchful eye on this most precious of His lambs.

May the God of all comfort be with the friends and family of Janet D. Pobursky, the mother of our 6th grade teacher, Pam Brewer, who was called home to be with her Lord and Savior this past Tuesday, October 6.  Funeral services were held yesterday in Montague, Michigan.  May we all be reminded of that glorious day when all believers will be reunited in heaven.

Board of Stewardship’s Food for Thought – As God’s stewards, we are managers, not owners.  “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world and all who live in it” (Psalm 24:1). Yet God entrusts us with possessions as He continues to pour down on us “every good and perfect gift . . .” (James 1:17).  We have the privilege and responsibility of managing all that God has given for Him.  As managers of God’s gifts, our purpose is to manage all things in ways that please and honor our heavenly Father.

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

You can watch Worship for Shut-Ins on Sunday mornings at 6:30 a.m. on WPTA-TV Channel 21, at 8 a.m. on Digital 33.2 & Satellite 252 on Sunday mornings, or on Comcast Cable Channel 55 on Sunday and Monday afternoons at 4 p.m.   They are also now broadcasting via the DIRECTV Channel 377 on Sundays at 11:30 a.m. Eastern time.  Next Sunday, Rev. Walter M. Schoedel, from Lutheran Senior Services in St. Louis, Missouri, will speak.  His sermon, “The 7 Up’s – A Model for Living!” is based on Psalm 92:12-15.  God teaches us how to live as we travel through the various stages of life.

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 broadcast on Sundays at 8:05 a.m. on WZBD (92.7 FM) and on WFCV (1090 AM) at 3:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.  Lutheran Hour can also be heard on WOWO (1190 AM) on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m.   Today’s message is “Mirror, Mirror” from Matthew 21:43.  Watch out!  A mirror may be TOO revealing!

You can listen to Issues, Etc., on demand.  Issues, Etc. is produced by Lutheran Public Radio and hosted by LCMS Pastor Todd Wilken.  Listen to what you want when you want at www.issuesetc.org.

This morning our service can also be heard live on WZBD (92.7 FM) from 9:05 a.m. to 9:50 a.m.  Pass the word on to others!  Our services will be broadcast weekly from now on.  (Please do not use the phone line in the church basement or in the Parish Hall during this time.  This is the line that the service is being broadcast from and if you use the phones, your conversation will also be broadcast.)  

Pastor Dahling will be preaching at Woodcrest on Thursday, October 23.  If anyone can help at the service (bringing residents down to the chapel), it would be very much appreciated.  You would need to be at Woodcrest around 1 p.m.  Please contact Pastor Dahling to let him know if you would be able to help.  Thanks!

Jan Buuck is October’s “Meals of Grace” coordinator.  If you know of someone who could benefit from this ministry, contact Jan at 639-3380.   (Please note that on the calendar page of the newsletter, Jan’s number was listed incorrectly.  Please correct it to the above number.)    

The LWML Quarterly Meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 14, in the church basement, beginning at 7:30 p.m.  Items on the agenda are election of officers and planning for “Advent by Candlelight.”  Please bring along a pair of scissors, as there should be time to cut stamps for missions.  You can also bring your mite envelopes that evening.  Hope to see a lot of faces on Tuesday night!  The LWML would also like to thank all who generously gave to the door collection last Sunday.  With your help, the LWML can spread the Good News of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The LLL/LWML Fall Rally will be held this afternoon at 3 p.m. at St. John’s Bingen.  Rev. Donald Sauls of Peace, Berne, will be the speaker, telling us more about “Compassionate Ministries” that work in southern Adams County.  A light supper will be served following the Rally.  All are welcome!

Please stay for our Quarterly Voters’ Meeting to be held after the worship service today.  Hear the reports from the various Committees and Boards.

The 7th & 8th grade Sunday School class is putting together “special” calendars for the shut ins and elderly of our congregation.  What is needed for a family member of those receiving these calendars to contact Wava Lichtle and give her the birthdays, anniversaries, and other special days to be highlighted on these calendars.  Please contact Wava today with this information.  The hope is to deliver these calendars before Christmas.

Our monthly Blood Pressure Clinic is scheduled for today.  Take a moment to have your blood pressure checked and recorded. You can do this either prior to or after the worship service.  Information will also be available on nutritious Halloween treats. If you have any health-related questions or concerns or would like to have someone check in on a loved one (or yourself), please contact our Parish Nurse, Wava Lichtle.  She can be reached at home (547-4143), by her cell phone (701-4360), or by her e-mail (wlwlichtle@hotmail.com).  You may even contact the church office and the message will be given to Wava.   

Our Sunday School classes are collecting school supplies to help families who are facing some financial hardships.  A list can be found in either entranceway of the church.  This will be an on-going collection as paper, pencils, glue, etc. is needed all year round.  There is also a need for clothes—gloves, coats, socks, hats, underwear, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and sweatpants—that would fit children in grades kindergarten through sixth grade.  You may place your donations in the boxes marked “Kids Helping Kids.”  Thanks!

The NW Region is hosting the Annual Indiana District Convention of the LLL.  It will be a “retreat” at Bearcreek Farms from Friday evening, October 31, to Sunday morning, November 2.  Raymond Stuckemeyer and his wife, Elain, is the Vice President of the International LLL and will be at the retreat.  If you have any questions, you can contact Martin Henrichs, Region 4 Governor, at 219-462-3728 or e-mail him at mhenrichs@earthlink.net.  Fifty rooms have been reserved to accommodate both the Indiana and Ohio Districts.  The deadline to register is October 14 if rooms are available.  Since we are so close, you may not wish to stay at Bearcreek, but may like to register for specific activities (meals and the Saturday evening dinner and show).  (It is possible these registrations can be turned in after the October 14 deadline.)  A $25 registration fee per family (check payable to Indiana District, Int’l LLL) is due with your registration form.  The cost of the rooms and/or meals and show are due upon arrival at Bearcreek Farms.  These fees must be paid by check to the LLL (no credit cards accepted).  There are registration forms in either entranceway of the church.

Do you wish to get the Lutheran Witness in 2009?  The subscription rate for 2009 will be $15 per subscription.  Whether your ordering the Witness for the first time or renewing an existing subscription, this information needs to be in the church office no later than Sunday, October 26.  All ordering information must be sent in to the District by October 31.  The church will be billed for the total subscriptions in January.  You may place your payment (cash or check) for your subscription in an envelope marked “Witness subscription.”  If paying by check, please make the check payable to “Zion Lutheran Church.”  Thanks for your help in this matter.

The LYF is again sponsoring a Halloween party for the children (Pre-K through 6th grade) of the congregation.  There will also be activities for the 7th and 8th graders.  The party will be held at the Parish Hall on Thursday, October 23, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Each LYF member is asked to bring two bags of candy for that night.  The LYF members should be at the Parish Hall by 6 p.m. on the 23rd.   A date is still being determined for setting up the Parish Hall as this year a maze will be put up as one of the activities for the children.

Concordia Theological Seminary is offering a retreat on Liturgy and the Liturgical Life.  The retreat will be held from Tuesday, October 28, to Saturday, November 1.  You will have an opportunity for learning, fellowship, music, and worship, including the special Reformation and All Saints services in Kramer Chapel.  To find out more about the seminary and the events held on campus or this retreat, you may call Katherine Rittner (260-452-2241) or visit their website, www.ctsfw.edu/retreats/retreats.php#LutehrHostel.

The LWML Thursday morning Bible class will not meet this week.  Their next class will be held at the home of Marlene Conrad on Thursday, October 23.

The Fall Bazaar and Oktoberfest will be held at Lutheran Home, 6701 South Anthony Boulevard in Ft. Wayne, on Friday and Saturday, October 17 and 18.  On Friday activities take place from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday the bazaar will be from 9 a.m. to noon.  Oktoberfest tickets are $5.50 (pre-sale from Donna Hileman) or $6 at the door.

Confused about the state of the financial markets and what you should be doing (or not doing)?  Russ Swansen, Chief Investment Officer at Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, can be heard on a live broadcast on the internet on Thursday, October 16, at 8:30 p.m. (E.S.T.)  Just log on to www.thrivent.com for this hour-long event.  The topic of the broadcast—Standing Strong in Troubled Times:  Surviving the Economic Roller Coaster.  You may have some of your questions addressed by listening to this broadcast.

Bellmont’s FFA is selling fruit to be delivered some time in December.  Brandan Bergdall, as well as Kevin and Derek Schultz, are members of the FFA and will be available after church (outside in front of church) every Sunday in October if you would like to place an order.  You can check with them this morning.

St. Peter’s Fuelling invites you to their annual Chicken and Swiss Steak Dinner today.  Serving is from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The cost is $7 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under.  The menu includes Swiss steak or chicken breast, baked potato, green beans, roll, Jell-O salads and applesauce, pie, cake, delights, and a drink.  Home delivery is available for shut ins.  Please call Matt Braun (724-8662) before 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 11, to make arrangements.  There will also be quilts, bake sale and bazaar items available.

To our Dear Church Family, Thank you so much for all the cards and words of comfort that so many of you have shown to Richard during his illness these past few months, and then his passing and funeral just last week.  We want to say a special thank you to Pastor Dahling for his many visits and prayers.  The comfort that he brought to Richard and his family will also be remembered with a smile.  Also thank you to the Bereavement Committee for the wonderful meal they prepared and served following the funeral.  May the Lord bless you. – The family of Richard L. Miller

Members of Zion, Friedheim, Jerry and I want to thank all of you for remembering our 50th anniversary.  It was a very pleasant surprise and we feel honored to be included in your church family.  God bless all of you.  We had a wonderful day!  -- Jerry & Joan Sielschott

Last Week’s Contributions

Home Purpose




The door collection for LWML last Sunday was $288.

Wyneken News

Fall is here and you might need to start shopping for some warmer clothes.  Goody’s Family Clothing, Penney’s, K-Mart, Macy’s/Ayres, Sears, T. J. Maxx, American Eagle, The Children’s Place, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Fashion Bug, Finish Line, Limited, Maurices, Old Navy/Gap/Banana Republic, Payless Shoes, and Value City are just a few of the stores on the list where you might want to shop.   Why not buy some SCRIP and help out the school?  SCRIP will be available all day in the school office except on Tuesdays as well as after school.  You can see Kim Weiland about purchasing SCRIP this morning.  You can also e-mail her at kimw@jwgroupinc.com to place your SCRIP order.

SCRIP is looking for an assistant coordinator and would like your help.  If you would like to get more involved with your child’s school, this is a great way to do it.  This position involves helping with the SCRIP orders a few hours every other week, as well as some computer and manual bookkeeping duties.  If anyone is interested or would like to know more about the SCRIP program, call Jane Kleine (639-7244) or Sarah Butler (724-7025).  The funds this program raises is a great asset; please prayerfully considering helping.

Chapel offerings for the first quarter will benefit Unity Lutheran School, an inner city mission school in East St. Louis, Illinois.  Unity has outgrown their present building and is currently in the middle of a school building project.  Please keep the school, their staff, students, and parents in your prayers.

The first quarter ends this Friday, October 17.   Report cards will be sent home on Tuesday, October 21.  Parent-teacher conferences will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, October 22-23.  School will dismiss at 12:15 p.m. both days.  Students who ride North Adams busses will have transportation both days; East Allen students will need to find transportation home.  There will be no school on Friday, October 24.

If there is a weather-related school delay, chimes will meet 30 minutes before the start of classes (example, when there is a two-hour delay, chimes would meet at 9:30 a.m.).

A Note from the Cooks:  The Lord has blessed us with a bountiful harvest of fresh apples.  For the next several weeks, the students can choose between the “fruit of the day” or a whole apple.  Take a look at the menu and let the teacher know during the morning lunch count, whether you would like an apple of the fruit listed for the day.  It is hoped that this will cut down on the amount of canned fruit being wasted.

Market Day order forms are included in this week’s bulletin.  November is Dessert Bonus Days!  Each mouth-watering pie or dessert selection helps the school earn extra money.  Also check out all the other holiday meal items.  Order forms need to be returned to Wyneken by Wednesday, October 22.  Internet and phone orders are due by noon on Saturday, October 25.  You may pick up your order from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 30.  Remember, if you have any questions, you may contact Sharon Franke (623-3992).

Just a reminder that the last day to wear shorts is Wednesday, October 15.

We would like to express our most heartfelt thanks to all and many that helped make the band dinner a huge success.  Many provided desserts, others helped serve, and many did both.  Thank you also to over 500 people that supported us by attending.  Thank you to Norm Schueler for his generous donation, as well as the generosity and graciousness of our Wyneken kitchen staff.  We are most grateful to you all. – The Wyneken Band & Band Boosters

There is still a need for a librarian for the 4th grade class—Thursdays from 1:25 p.m. to 1:50 p.m.  If you can help, please contact Mrs. Gemila Rabel at Wyneken (639-6177) or home (724-4949).  Thanks!

Your help is needed!  Volunteers are needed to help in the Child Care area, especially at lunch time (11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.) and homework time (2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.).  If you would be able to spare a few hours, even for just one day of the week, it would be a tremendous help.  Please contact Tammy Melcher in the Child Care office (639-6064) as soon as possible.

The 8th grade class is making plans for the annual carnival to be held on Sunday, October 19, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.  (Please remember that an adult or high-school-aged person must accompany all children under the age of 12.)  It will be a sports theme this year.  A “silent auction” will again take place this year and there are over 50 items to bid on.  If you have any items you would like to donate to this cause, please contact Hollie Hormann (724-8538).  The class will also be selling poinsettias and fresh pine arrangements towards the end of October and continuing through November.  Watch the bulletin and/or newsletter for the latest news.

The class will be selling Gold Canyon candles from October 20-31, with delivery anticipated in mid-November (before Thanksgiving).  There will be a sample kit so that you can check out the fragrance.  Candles must be paid for at the time of order.  See any 8th grader to place an order.  Friedheim’s 8th graders are as follows:  Jacob Bergman, Kyle Freimuth, Brett Hormann, Shelby Kiess, Katie Linnemeier, and Madison Stoppenhagen.  If you have a question on this fundraiser, you may contact Claudia Schueler or Joleena Korte.

The craft show is just around the corner (December 6).  Booth space is still available.  If you are interested in being a vendor at the show, please contact Jani McDowell (639-3401) or Dawn Norton (447-4406).


Tournament action for both our varsity teams—soccer and volleyball—continues this week.  Soccer semi-finals are to be held on Tuesday, October 14 at 4:30 and 6 p.m. at Kreager 3, with the final game scheduled for Thursday, October 16, at 6 p.m. at Kreager 3.  Wednesday, October 15, is second round action for volleyball.  If Wyneken beat Bethlehem on Saturday, they will face the winner of the Holy Cross vs. St. John-Emmanuel game at 6:30 p.m. at Wyneken.  Semi-final (9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.) and final (12:30 p.m.) games are to be held at Wyneken on Saturday, October 18. Check with a team member for game time, location, and opponent.  Good luck!!  (Please remember that the LSAA collects charges admission to all tournament games.

JV soccer uniforms and 7th grade volleyball uniforms should be returned to school by Monday, October 13.  Varsity soccer uniforms and 8th grade volleyball uniforms are to be returned by Monday, October 20.  Please remember that your child will not be allowed to participate in the next sport season until his/her uniform is cleaned and returned.  Thanks!

There are several fall sport camp information sheets in the school office—girls tennis at Bellmont on October 18, boys’ winter basketball camp at Heritage starting on January 3, and Upward basketball/cheerleading at Crossroad Church in Decatur beginning on December 8.  If you are interested in any of these, stop in the school office and pick up a registration form.

The Athletic Boosters are accepting donations of bottled water, Gatorade, Pepsi or Coke products (regular or diet) in 20 oz. or smaller capped bottles.  No cans, please.  Your donations help offset our athletic expenses (officiating, uniforms, equipment, tourney fees, etc.) and allow us to keep the participation fee from rising.  Besides helping in the concession stand (a minimum of two times for each sport in which your child participates), volunteers are also needed to run the scoreboard and keep the scorebook.  Training is available for those who are interested in doing this, but don’t yet have the needed skills.  A sign-up sheet for concession workers is posted at the concession stand.  Take a look at the available times, look at your schedule, and sign up to work.  It takes everyone’s help to make our Athletic Department run smoothly and successfully and your help is appreciated.

Opportunity Knocks

The apostle Paul, like us, had things he wanted to do and people he wanted to see.  He told the Corinthians that he wanted to come to visit them but that he would have to stay awhile in Ephesus, “because a great door for effective work [had] opened to [him] (1 Corinthians 16:9).  As a true disciple of Christ, Paul knew about self-sacrifice.  He had suffered much for the sake of the Gospel, and even now, instead of pleasing himself, he was not going to let this opportunity for ministry pass by.

These few words offer much food for thought.  Perhaps you’ve worked long and hard and have been driving around, casting your eyes on new luxury homes.  The budget would be tight.  Sure wouldn’t leave room for extra gifts and offerings beyond the tithe.  What do you do?  Is this the time for you, like Paul, to put your own desires aside in order to be able to give donations to missionaries, to your church colleges, and to the ministry of your own church?  Everywhere you look, can’t you see that “a great door for effective work has opened . . .”

Perhaps you’ve prepared for a career in a lucrative field.  It’s been a long struggle, studying for tests, preparing for interviews, and working hard in the summers to pay for it.  Then you sense the call of God, calling you into fulltime Christian ministry.  Not exactly the lucrative career you had in mind.  Certainly “there [will be] many who oppose [you].”  This is foolish, they say, you can serve God anywhere, but you know that “a great door for effective work has opened...”

For most of us, taking advantage of the opportunities God gives us to serve and give don’t involve life-changing decisions.  It simply requires that we be ready and willing to set aside our own wants and desires, probably temporarily, and walk through that great door of opportunity.
