Sunday, Nov 10, 2019 – no service

I’m back for a week, so let’s make the most of it.  This Sunday we are back on track with our Confirmation series.  This week we will be studying the 7th and 8th Commandments.  Once again, there is a VERY strong tie between the two that we tend to miss when looking at them in isolation.  Join us this Sunday at 9:00 am in our usual classroom in Ballard Middle School as we talk about stealing, lying, gossiping, slandering, and other related topics that are VERY relevant to our world today.
I will incorporate the readings into the message this week so we don’t need a lector, but we could use a treat-bringer.  Please “Reply All” if you’re able to help out in this way.  Some of our readings for this week will be:
Assorted Proverbs
Upcoming events:
November 9 – 9:00 am – 3:30 pm – Iowa LCMC Gathering – Faith Lutheran Church, Spencer, IA
November 10 – Officers meeting after worship
November 17 – 9:25 am – Combined worship at Bethany (I’m doing workshops for LFL in California)
November 24 – 9:00 am – regular worship at Shepherd
November 26 – 5:30 pm – Community Soup Supper
November 26 – 7:00 pm – Community Thanksgiving Worship
In your prayers this week:

The Tjernagels in Spain; Pastors Duggi, Swen, David, Dake, Moksha, Peter, Jonathan, and Jayasingh as they minister in India

Janis and Ieva Diekonts, Don Richman, and David Breidenbach as they conduct mission work in Latvia and other parts of eastern Europe.
The people of South Sudan and Ethiopia as civil war continues to rage – and for the South Sudanese Christians who have been forced to flee to Ethiopia

The children and staff at the Bethany-Good Shepherd Orphanage in Tanuku.  PLEASE prayerfully consider whether you could help out with a donation to help out the orphanage.

The members of the Lutheran Church in Gudipadu, Andhra Pradesh, as they rebuild their church.  Pastor Duggi is beginning a ministry to help aging women in their village.  Support of all kinds is needed.

Our nation and its leaders – for a return to God and the values on which this country was built

I pray that the rest of your week goes well, and I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday at 9:00 am.
