THE CHURCH OFFICE will be closed Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day.

ANNUAL CIRCUIT – WIDE ASCENSION DAY SERVICE:  Please join us with other congregations from throughout our circuit as we observe Ascension Day on Thursday, May 30.  This year’s host will be Immanuel Lutheran Church, Steger, IL.  Worship, including the celebration of Holy Communion, will begin at 7:00 pm.

PRAY FOR OUR MISSIONARIES:  We pray especially for those serving our Lord in Papua New Guinea. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Papua New Guinea in 1948 at the invitation of a Wauni tribal leader in Yaramanda, Enga Province. In 1971, the Gutnius (Good News) Lutheran Church (GLC) of Papua New Guinea became an LCMS sister/partner church. During 50-plus years of blessing by the Holy Spirit, the church has grown to a baptized membership of more than 54,500 in approximately 550 congregations. The GLC reports a national staff of 257 pastors, 532 evangelists and 1,040 teachers. The GLC operates Timothy Seminary in Birip (Pidgin language) and Martin Luther Seminary in Lae (English language); Immanuel Lutheran Hospital; four health centers; numerous preschools, kindergartens, primary and secondary schools; and Balob Teachers College. May God continue to bless the work of His people in Papua New Guinea!  Please see the map in the Narthex for the location of this week’s missionary country.

THE JUNE CARILLON will be distributed by the ushers after the Worship Service on Sunday.
