 + Words and Works +


ALTAR FLOWERS ON OCTOBER 20 are from Mel Kranz in thanks to our Lord for granting him 91 wonderful years of life that he celebrated on October 16.  We pray that God will continue to bless Mel as he continues his faith filled life.

BAPTIZED ON OCTOBER 20 AFTER THE 10:00 SERVICE is Julius Jose Hernandez, son of Miguel Hernandez and Maddison Bohlen.  May parents, witnesses and we, as a congregation, be faithful to the Holy Spirit’s will in helping Julius to grow in his Christian faith and life. Amen.

LIFE EVERLASTING:  The promises of our Risen Savior are fulfilled for Johanna Jackert who finished her pilgrimage on Tuesday, October 15 at an age of 90 years.  Now may our Lord give comfort and healing to her family and strengthen the faith of all of us.  Amen.

PRAY FOR OUR MISSIONARIES:  We pray especially for those serving our Lord in Burkina Faso. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod has supported the work in Burkina Faso, which was started by a Liberian war refugee, since 2000. The LCMS continues to support the training of pastoral candidates from Burkina Faso at the seminary in Togo.  May God continue to bless the work of His people in Burkina Faso!  Please see the map in the Narthex for the location of this week’s missionary country.
