THE CONGREGATION REJOICES IN PRAYER on behalf of Patricia Croon and James Morgan who will be joined in holy matrimony on Saturday, October 21.  May the Lord’s offer to be present in their marriage always be received with faith and joy.  Amen.

LIFE EVERLASTING: The promises of our Risen Savior are fulfilled for Ms. Maria Mankiewicz who finished her pilgrimage on Saturday, October 14.  We will celebrate God’s grace and Maria’s life with Christ on Thursday, October 26th.  Now may our Lord give comfort and healing to her family and strengthen the faith of all of us.  Amen.

BAPTIZED ON OCTOBER 22 AFTER THE 10:00 SERVICE is Olivia Elizabeth Gomez, daughter of Jose Gomez and Brooke Bialasik-Gomez. May parents, witnesses and we, as a congregation, be faithful to the Holy Spirit’s will in helping Olivia to grow in her Christian faith and life. Amen.

PRAY FOR OUR MISSIONARIES:  We pray especially for those serving our Lord in Burkina Faso. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod has supported Lutheran congregations in Burkina Faso and theological education for their leaders since 2000. Missionaries living and serving in Dapaong, Togo, have taught at the Lutheran Center for Theological Studies, which trains students from Burkina Faso and other French-speaking West African countries. A Liberian refugee who has planted churches in Burkina Faso was among one of the first groups of students to study in the three-year pastoral track at the Center. Currently, the Center serves the French-speaking West African Lutheran church bodies of seven countries: Togo, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Benin, Burkina Faso, Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. May God continue to bless the work of His people in Burkina Faso!

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION: The Constitution Committee and Church Council have approved a revision to our Congregation's constitution and a portion of the by-laws, articles I - VI. Copies of the proposed constitution and by-laws are available in the Narthex for review. The new constitution and by-laws will be brought to the voters for approval at the November 12, 2017 Voters Assembly. Once approved, the constitution will be submitted to NID for their review. If you have any questions or comments please contact Glenn Stewart, Phyllis Schimke, Jean Jacobs or Mark Becker.  E-Mail comments can be sent to the Church Office at spchurchoffice@yahoo.com.

LUTHERFEST 2017  On Saturday, November 4, we will have our German Dinner. Melitta's wonderful sauerkraut, Maria's delicious German potato salad, sausage, music from the homeland and Vieles Gutes Essen. The cost of tickets will be $12.00.  If you would like to sell tickets to your family and friends, please contact Maria Bunte.
 
REFORMATION 500:  AN INTERDENOMINATIONAL CONVERSATION  October 30th at 7:15 pm - All are welcome to join us in the Ladies' Parlor to live stream this unique event! We will watch from the comforts of our own church as contemporary Christian leaders discuss denominational differences at this historic mile marker and engage in conversation about the historic and theological divisions emerging from the Reformation controversies, as well as points of shared concern and common cause among Christian churches today. It's going to be an interesting conversation you will want to be a part of and a great way to celebrate the 500th anniversary!
 
PADS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - The new PADS shelter for our area will be at Faith United Church in Park Forest and they are in need of volunteers for all shifts and a Meal Team Leader every fourth Monday. They are starting this shelter soon and will need help to provide meals and shelter to the homeless in our area during these cold months ahead. Please talk to Deaconess or call Jan Beutler (708) 646-6808 or email bjbeutler@comcast.net if you are interested in serving.
