BAPTISM IS BEING HELD TODAY for Kollins Rena Curtis, daughter of Jason and Kelsey Curtis.. Kollins’ sponsors are Michael & Amy Schroer and Shane & Nicole Strope. God’s blessings to Kollins as she becomes a member of our congregation and an heir of our Heavenly Father.

ADULT BIBLE CLASS continues the series on the book of Judges. The Old Testament book of Judges is very contemporary for our lives today. A repeated phrase in Judges is: “Everyone did what was right in their own eyes,” and that phrase pretty much describes life in the United States today. Join Adult Bible Class to explore how God’s people handled life in similar circumstances to today. In addition, the book of Judges has some very interesting accounts, perhaps, the most humorous story in the Old Testament. See you in Bible Class!

THANK YOU to the members who helped mow the cemetery last week. Your willingness to help is appreciated so much.

A CALL WAS EXTENDED on Sunday evening to Rev. Kirk M. Clayton. Please pray for God’s will to be done for our congregation, his family and his congregation, Zion Lutheran in Mascoutah, IL.
