Statement of Communion Practice

Luther found his deepest treasure in the forgiveness of sins and called it “the sun around which all other doctrines revolve like planets.”  Jesus promised forgiveness in the Lord’s Supper.  Deeply thankful for His gift to us here, we also express our deep desire to celebrate the sacrament according to His Will.  As this includes doctrinal oneness, we practice close communion and asks guests to speak with the pastor before the service.

We thank our fieldworker, Dan Harders, for today’s sermon message.  We pray the Lord’s blessing on him as he continues his studies for the ministry.

We remember our members who are celebrating birthdays this week—Jan Linnemeier, Bev Jenkins, Terry McAllister, Becky Blomenberg, Shirley Gehres, Lydia Dahling, Fern Riemke, Drew Stoppenhagen, and Jared Witte.  We remember our 5th and 6th grade Sunday School teacher, Stan Stoppenhagen, our Wyneken kindergarten teacher, Rae Fuhrmann, as well as Toney Bergman who teaches at Bellmont High School.  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 Lynn Fuhrmann, Jim Riemke, Dick Hileman, Donna Hileman, and Connie Darnell (Carol Hitzfield’s sister).

We rejoice with Luke & Kim (Gallmeyer) Case on the birth of their daughter, Addison Leigh, on Wednesday, April 15.  May the Good Shepherd keep an ever-watchful eye on this most precious of His lambs.

We rejoice with Jon & Cora Buuck who will celebrate their first wedding anniversary this Tuesday, April 21.  May our Lord and Savior continue to be a constant presence in their home, remaining at the center of their lives.  We pray the Lord’s richest blessings upon them.

We also remember in our prayers Kevin Conrad and Sarah Curtis who were married yesterday afternoon.  May the Lord richly bless this couple as they begin their lives together.

We remember in our prayers the friends and family of James Blomenberg (Ted’s brother) who was called to his heavenly home on Monday, April 13, and was given Christian burial yesterday afternoon.  May the God of all comfort be with those who mourn, reminding them of that great day when all believers will be reunited in heaven.

The flowers on the altar are to the glory of God and in honor of Marvin Drier.  Marv has served the Lord in the teaching ministry for 25 years.  We pray that our Heavenly Father will be his guide and bless him as he continues to teach the youth of our congregations.

We remember those who are serving our country—Jason Putteet who is in South Korea, Randy McAllister (Fern Riemke’s son and brother of Kim, Terry, and Julie) who is serving in Germany, Brian Moeller, our reservists, Mike Brandt, Cody Kiess (grandson of Gene & Irene Kiess), and Josh Colwell (Tiffany’s husband), as well as Lydia Reynolds (niece of Dick & Donna Hileman), Nicolas Timm (Lowell & Jean’s son), James Johnson (Jean Timm’s nephew), and Chad Hall (Doris Conrad’s son-in-law).  May the Lord protect and guide them in their missions.

Board of Stewardship’s Food for Thought – Can you imagine Mary Magdalene’s grief as she cried, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put Him!” (John 20:2)?  Many today ask, “Where is God?”  Like Mary, many today are looking for Him in the wrong places.  The angel told Mary, “Why do you look for the living among the dead?  He is not here; He has risen!”(Luke 24:5-6)  Like the angel, we have the answer for those who are looking.  Let’s not keep it a secret!

Included in this morning’s bulletin is our weekly study guide, “Time in the Word.”   Next week’s theme is “Resurrection Witness.”

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. 

If you are unable to come to church, make sure you listen to our live service on WZBD (92.7 FM).  Our service is broadcast from 9:05 a.m. to 9:50 a.m.  You can also listen to the broadcast over the Internet.  Just log on to our website (www.zionfriedheim.org) and click on “Listen to Zion’s worship service on WZBD radio from 9:05 - 9:50 a.m. on Sunday mornings.”  Today’s broadcast is in honor of Marvin Drier and his 25 years in the teaching ministry, sponsored by his wife and children.

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.

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 sermon is “A Reasonable Request.”  Sounds simple enough, but are there hidden nuances behind a request?   

We thank Jean Timm and Alicia Drier for their duet, “Alleluia.”  Alicia sang “Do You Know Your Shepherd’s Voice?” during the communion distribution.  We are blessed to have such talented individuals as members of our congregation, who are willing to share their God-given talents with us.  May the Lord bless each of them.

Kim Weiland (639-3804) is April’s “Meals of Grace” coordinator.  Please contact Kim if you know of someone who could benefit from this ministry of our church.  Our supply in the freezer is getting low.  If you would like to donate any items—casseroles, soups, desserts, applesauce, anything that freezes well—in either family-size or servings for one or two, it would be very much appreciated.  Just label your donation (short description and date placed in freezer).  Thanks for your help! 

On January 11, Grinsfelder Associates Architects, Inc. gave a presentation showing a possible way to create a gathering area and place bathrooms on the main floor of the church.   Planning Committee and Council members will be available after services to help explain the concept and answer questions.  There are drawings in church (near the pulpit) for you to look over.  You can also go to the church’s website, www.zionfriedheim.org, and click on “Church Expansion Proposal Information.”  An artist’s rendition of the proposed expansion from both the northwest and southwest view is available for you.  By clicking on the pictures, an enlarged view can be previewed.  From this site you can go to 1st floor plan of proposed site, as well as proposals of the basement plan, north elevation, south elevation, and west elevation.  A site plan for the proposed expansion is also included.  You might especially want to check out the Expansion Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) to see if one of your questions is answered there.  Grinsfelder have worked up drawings for a proposed Parish Hall.  There will be two informational meetings to present these drawings and to take questions.  The first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 28, at 7 p.m.  A second informational meeting is scheduled for Sunday, May 31, following the worship service.  The Council wishes to allow members who cannot attend the Special Voters’ Meeting (date yet to be determined) to contact any of the following three people and express their opinion prior to that meeting:  Chairman of the Congregation – Mike Conrad (547-4717), Chairman of the Elders – John Nidlinger (724-9920), and Planning Committee Representative – Mike Werling (639-6132). 

Still want a Friedheim calendar?  There still available and now for only $10.  You can pick one up following today’s worship service from any LYF member.  If you would like to send one to a family member or a friend, there are mailers available at a cost of $1 per mailer. 

There are sign-up sheets in the south entranceway for the 2009 sponsorship of our weekly radio broadcast as well as placing flowers on the altar.  Don’t forget to sign your name on this sheet so that others can see which weeks are open.  Thank you

You are invited to attend the LWML Praise Service at Flatrock this Saturday, April 25.  Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.; the service begins at 9 a.m.  The theme is “Look to the Hills” and the in-gathering will benefit the food bank at the Ft. Wayne Seminary.  Items being collected include non-perishable foods and paper goods.  If you wish to give a monetary donation, please see Marlene Conrad.  The LLL/LWML Spring Rally will be held on Sunday, April 26, at 3 p.m. at Immanuel Lutheran Church (Union Township). 

Parents of the 2009 Confirmation Class:  Don’t forget that confirmation pictures are planned for this Saturday, April 25.  Please be at church by 8:45 a.m. and don’t forget to bring your gown!

Thrivent Financial for Lutherans invite you to a reception for this year’s confirmation class.  It will be held next Sunday, April 26, following the worship service.  You are invited to come to the church basement to meet this year’s class, enjoy some light refreshments, and have an opportunity for some Christian fellowship.

When going through your closets, remember Immanuel House.  Your clean, gently used items can be placed in the box in the Parish Hall near the east door and Joe Gorman will deliver them to Immanuel House.  Thank you for your generous support of this ministry.  (There have been over 70 clients helped at Immanuel House so far.)

Our Sunday School classes continue to collect items for families in Adams County.  A list can be found in either entranceway of the church.  There is a need for clothes—lightweight new spring jackets, new hooded sweatshirts, new socks, and new underwear—that would fit children in grades kindergarten through fifth grade.  The greatest need is for sizes 5-10, both girls and boys.  You may place your donations in the boxes marked “Kids Helping Kids.”  Thanks!

Are you willing to help with our Sunday School program?  We are looking for an individual who would volunteer to serve as Assistant Sunday School Superintendent for the 2009-2010 school year.  This individual would then become the Sunday School Superintend the following year.  If you have questions or would be willing to be a part of this program, please contact a member of the School Board (Mitch Baumann, Randy Hockemeyer, or Scott Hormann) or our current Sunday School administrators—Kristin Scheumann, our current Sunday School Superintendent, or Amy Walker, the Assistant Sunday School Superintendent.  Thanks!

The church picnic is set for Saturday, June 20.  Your help is needed!  Individuals are needed to help set up, take down, organize the food, plan the games, and take care of the drinks.  If you are interested in helping make this wonderful afternoon/evening a reality, please contact a member of the Board of Stewardship—Shirley Drier, Cindy Des Jean, or Lisa Bultemeier.  Thank you!

Donna Hileman is our Lutheran Home Key Lady and, therefore, a member of the Lutheran Home Auxiliary.  In this position, Donna has served as a liaison between our congregation and Lutheran Home.  Lutheran Home assigns our congregation dates to bring birthday cakes (usually once a year) for the month and to assist residents to their Sunday worship services by pushing wheelchairs (once or twice per year). Donna then asks for donations or assistance for those dates. There is no need for cakes for the remainder of the year.  However, our congregation has been assigned July 5 to push wheelchairs.  (The youth group will be unable to help on the 5th, so other individuals or groups are needed for that day.)  Donna also contacted the church office with information concerning upcoming activities (card party, chicken BBQ, ice cream social, garage sale, etc.) that should be publicized.  If you would like to serve in this capacity or need more information, please contact Mike Conrad (547-4717) or Pastor Dahling as soon as possible. 

Would you be willing to serve as our lay delegate to the convention to be held in Ft. Wayne this summer?  Information concerning dates, location, and responsibilities will be available next week.  If you would be willing to go, please contact Mike Conrad (547-4717) or Pastor Dahling.
