+ Words and Works +

LIFE EVERLASTING: The promises of our Risen Savior are fulfilled for Mr. Steven Braun who finished his pilgrimage on Tuesday, August 15 at an age of 61 years.  Funeral arrangements are pending.  Now may our Lord give comfort and healing to his family and strengthen the faith of all of us. Amen.

PRAY FOR OUR MISSIONARIES:  We pray especially for those serving our Lord in Togo. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Togo in 1980.  Currently, leadership training is being conducted among the Moba, Gurma and Gangam people of Togo through the Lutheran Center for Theological Studies (CLET), located in Dapaong, Togo. Church planting is the central emphasis of program courses. In May 2002, the first five Togolese pastors were ordained in the Lutheran Church of Togo (ELT). The LCMS has supported mercy projects in Togo by providing grants for interest-free loans to farmers so they might purchase livestock; provide medicine and medical equipment; dig wells; provide drought and famine relief; benefit agriculture programs; make road improvements; restore clinics; benefit literacy programs; and provide assistance to families affected by civil conflict and flood disaster response. The Lutheran Church of Togo currently has 10 ordained ministers, more than 30 congregations and preaching stations and more than 5,000 baptized members. May God continue to bless the work of His people in Togo!

OUTDOOR CHURCH SERVICE:  We have changed the date.  It will be held on Sunday, September 24th.  More information to follow.  Mark your calendars and we are hoping to see a lot of our church family there.  Board of Family Ministry.

WANTED  Magazines of any kind for our ministry to nursing homes.  Please drop your magazines off in the Narthex.  Thank you.

LYF PIZZA PARTY  The summer flew by, but let's not let the school year start without a celebration! All 7th-12th graders are invited to join us Sunday, August 20th at 6:00 pm to eat pizza, play games, and have some fun before school starts. Talk to Deaconess Katelyn if you have any questions!

ALTAR FLOWERS:  To dedicate flowers on the Altar for September, please contact:  Marilyn Harris phone or text at 708-533-5467 or email marilynharris030@gmail.com.  Thank you.

FAMILY MINISTRY:  We are having a meeting on Sunday, August 27 immediately after church in the Ladies Parlor.  Please try to attend as we have a few things to discuss.  Thank you.

“ON BEING LUTHERAN” ADULT INFORMATION CLASS:  If you are interested in becoming a member of St. Paul’s or would like to learn more of what being “Lutheran” is about, please join us beginning Tuesday, September 12 from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in the Parlor (adjacent to the gymnasium). It’s also an excellent opportunity, as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, for current members to receive a “refresher” on what we believe and profess as members of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. The class will run for eight weeks. Please contact the church office at 708.754.4493 or spchurchoffice@yahoo.com if you are interested in attending.

CONFIRMATION CLASS:  Confirmation class for seventh and eighth grade students will resume on Wednesday, September 6 from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in the Church Library and will continue throughout the school year. If you have a son or daughter who will be attending, or if you are interested in receiving more information regarding Confirmation Class at St. Paul’s, please contact the church office at 708.754.4493 or spchurchoffice@yahoo.com.
