BIBLE CLASSES have resumed! – Thursdays at 9:00 a.m. and Sundays after worship. Our Sunday class will continue to study our liturgy and why we worship the way we do. Thursday mornings we will study the scripture readings for the upcoming Sunday. Everyone is welcome!

THE “CARD PARTY” now meets at church on the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 1:00 p.m. More “players” are always welcome to join the fun. We are also asking for donations of used greeting cards (for all occasions) to “repurpose”. Please cut out any personal notes written inside the cards but leave the original verses. Cards may be left in the church office. Thank You!!

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is planned beginning today, with four “virtual lessons”. Packets will be distributed to families after church at both entrances on the following Sundays:                                July 19th, August 2nd, August 16th, & August 30th.

A different lesson will be in each packet. If you are not able to attend church on the Sundays mentioned, feel free to stop by the church and pick up a packet as they will be on a table near the back of the church.

CONFIRMATION is scheduled for August 23rd. Please contact the church office if you have a conflict.

THIS IS THE LIFE AND WORSHIP SERVICES THROUGH MAIN STREET LIVING are held each Sunday on KCAU-9 from Sioux City at 10:00 and 10:30 respectively. Today -“Tragedy Near a Small Town”-Justice or mercy? Tragedy in a small town results in a loving father holding a grudge rather forgiving as our Father has forgiven us. The worship service today is led by Rev. Ben Perkins of Shepherd of Peace Lutheran in Sergeant Bluff, Iowa.

ADDITIONAL DONATIONS NEEDED: The cemetery directory committee is asking for more donations so that the shelter for the cemetery directory can be finished. Approximately $7,000 is still needed. Your donations can be put in the offering and we ask that you please note on your check that is what your donation is for.

LWML MEMBERS: There will be an LWML meeting on Wednesday, July 22, at 7:30. We will meet in the new fellowship hall for a regular meeting.

THE QUARTERLY VOTER’S MEETING was held last Wednesday evening and the annual budget has been set at $255,755, which means that $4,918 is needed weekly to support this.

THANK YOU to the members who helped mow the cemetery this past week. Your help is appreciated!

THE LUTHERAN HOUR —“Bringing Christ to the Nations and the Nations to the Church” on WJAG each Sunday at 7:30 A.M. and 12:30 P.M. Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler

REFRIGERATOR MAGNETS are available for you to take home. They have the information you need to hear the daily phone devotions provided by our Osmond pastors and donated by American Broadband. Please take as many as you need, and then take an extra to share with a neighbor! They are available near the bulletin boxes.

WHAT ABOUT BOOKS have been revised and are available for you. These books are easy to read and explain what Lutherans believe and teach about topics important for today. They are available near the bulletin boxes.

Dear Friends at Immanuel,

Thank you so much for your continued gifts to Lutheran Bible Translators for our ministry. We appreciate you supporting our work so that the Khwe people can have God’s Word in their own language speaking to their hearts. We are continuing to do pretty well; Tim and the translators are still figuring out how to get back to work. It doesn’t help that we are having a fuel shortage — people here are hoarding car gas the way people in other countries have hoarded TP — so Tim is not driving in to work every day and the translators also are not coming every day. We are a bit discouraged since right now it looks like we won’t be reaching our translation goals for the year, we really had hoped that we would put together a panoramic Bible (portions of the Old and New Testaments which point to Christ and our need for a Savior) and get that published and distributed to the Khwe communities. That was our time-line, however, and God is the one who is in charge and His timing is perfect. Please pray that our translation project would still move forward and God’s will is done. Thank you, again, for supporting us and our ministry. God Bless, Rev. Tim, Lisa, Aaron and Andrew Beckendorf
