The Theme of the Day

Bread for the Body

Exodus 24:3-11 Bread is a means of fellowship
Ephesians 4:1-7, 11-16 Bread makes for bodily growth
John 6:1-15 Bread satisfies physical hunger

"Making Much of Little"
John 6:8-12

How can Jesus make much out of our little?
1. You might be small
2. You can give your all to Christ.
3. You can rejoice with what Christ can accomplish.

We remember our members celebrating birthdays this week -- Cindy Houser, Jason Scheumann, Josh Scheumann, Madison Stoppenhagen, DeWayne Gallmeyer, Sara Bultemeier, Sharon Colchin, Nathan Jackson, Tom Blomenberg, Gary Robinson, Eldora Scheumann, and Timberlee Weiland.  We also remember our Wyneken School Board, faculty, support staff, students, and parents as the 2000/2001 school year begins tomorrow.  May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.

We rejoice with Jeff and Robin (Schuller) Secaur on the birth of their daughter, Nina Marie, on Saturday, August 12.  May the Good Shepherd keep an ever-watchful eye on this most precious of His lambs.

We extend our Christian sympathy to the family and friends of Albert Gallmeyer who was called to his heavenly home on Sunday, August 13, and was given Christian burial on Wednesday, August 16.  May the God of all comfort be with those who mourn.

May the Great Physician grant health and strength to all who are in need of His presence in their lives.  

We extend our warmest wishes to Erik and Emily Blomenberg who are celebrating their first wedding anniversary today.  May the Lord continue to bless this couple.

The book of Job started out as a test of Job's loyalty to God.  When trouble passes out of your life, can you look back and say, "I was faithful to God?"     Hear Dr. Dale Meyer's message, "When the Trouble Passes,"  on the The Lutheran Hour.  The show airs on WOWO beginning at 7:35 a.m.  It's also on at 8:05 a.m. on 92.7 FM, and at  3:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on 1090 on Sunday.  

Included in this morning's bulletin is a study guide ("Time in the Word") for this week.  Please take a few moments each day to go over this information.  The theme for this week is "Bread from Heaven."  If you have any comments about this program, please contact pastor or one of the Elders.

Cornfusion T-shirt orders were due last Sunday with payment due no later than August 27.  The shirts should be available by September 3.  Questions?  Contact Jane Thieme, Carol Selking, or Carma Conrad.

The Glenbrook Bazaar will be held on Friday and Saturday, September 8 and 9.  A sign-up sheet is in the south entrance way of the church.  Check your schedules and see when you will be able to help.  Set up will be Thursday night, September 7,  starting at 8:00 p.m.  (at Glenbrook). The Morning Glories  resume their crafting activities this Tuesday, August 22, at 9:00 a.m. in the Parish Hall.  Come and be a part of this group!

The AAL will meet  following the worship service today.   They will meet in the back of church.

Staffing needs at the maze are ongoing.  Make sure you check your calendars and sign up on the sheets in either entrance way of the church to work at the maze.  You may also call someone on the Staffing Committee - Tim Blomenberg, Leesa Heckman, or Lester Werling.

The Foods Committee is asking for donations through October.  Coke and Pepsi products (especially Mountain Dew) as well as bottled water are  needed  along with hot dogs, hamburger, and nacho chips.  Cash donations are also being accepted.  You may bring your donations to church or contact any member of the Foods Committee - Dorothy Heckman, Denise Conrad, Mary Gallmeyer, or Tami Stoppenhagen.  They would be more than willing to pick up the items from you.  Thanks in advance for your help.

The Midwest Chinese Ministry will have its first annual meeting and conduct a celebration service at Concordia Lutheran Church (4525 Lake Avenue, Ft. Wayne) today at 3:00 p.m.  May the Lord continue to bless this special ministry.

College Students (and parents of college students):  Many have already made it to campus.  Please let Pastor or the church office know the college mailing address, phone number, and E-mail address.  You wouldn't want your student   to miss out on pastor's weekly message!

Help celebrate Bethlehem's 75th anniversary.  Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 3705 S. Anthony, will hold a Community Festival on Saturday, August 26, from noon to 4:00 p.m. on the church's parking lot.  There will be games, booths, and delicious food.  On Sunday, August 27,  the Rev. John Nunes will be the featured speaker at their anniversary kick-off service which begins at 10:00 a.m.  This service will be held under the tent on the athletic field.  A box lunch will be served after the service.  Our congregation is invited to attend either or both of these activities.  Let us keep this congregation in our prayers especially during their anniversary year.

Thanks to all for your support, prayers, and Christian care and concern shown  to us during Eric's hospitalization.  We appreciated it very much.

Leonard and Christine Bultemeier

Thank you for the kindness shown to me through prayers, cards, and expressions of sympathy after the loss of my mother, Helen Scare, and again after Albert's passing.  Your concern was very much appreciated.

Have you looked into the face of a child?

... a face aglow with the joy of life, each new day filled with something new to be learned,  explored, enjoyed, to the full
... a face with twinkling eyes, mischief leaping from every pore, alert to each new adventure ahead
... a solemn face with a seeking mind that's asking, 'Why?'
... a tear-stained face seeking comfort from one who cares
... an uplifted, trusting face who knows no fear
... the face of a child created by God for love and placed in our hands for nourishing
... a child who needs to be held by the hand as we journey with him on the road of faith.
