NEWS AND NOTES August 19, 2018
Å During Communion distribution, the Communion hymn is sung. As long as people are still communing, the next consecutive hymns in the hymnal are sung. We do not stand for doxological hymn verses during Communion distribution.
Å Today we welcome Rev. Dr. Timothy Quill as our guest preacher and celebrant. Dr. Quill serves the seminary in positions such as Director of International Studies and Associate Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Missions. We welcome Dr. Quill and his wife, Annette, and pray the Lord’s blessings upon them.
Å Note that today’s bulletin News and Notes were completed last Saturday (August 11) before Pastor’s farewell. Thank-yous and additional information will either be announced today or they will be in next Sunday’s bulletin.
Å Pastor and Lynn are due to return this evening from their District/Synod event.
Å In an urgent situation, as Pastor Brege is responsible for increasingly more District responsibilities, members are encouraged to contact an area pastor (Dahling, Brock, Voorman, Christian).
Å Please mark your calendars now for the following activities: Sunday, September 30, 2018 LWML SRD Workshop 3:00 PM here, St Paul-Preble - Sew Cancer Pads. Sunday, October 7, 2018 LLL/LWML Fall Rally, 3:00 PM at St Peter-Fuelling - Pastor Daniel Dahling will present history on the life of Friedrich Conrad Dietrich Wyneken. Please continue to save your LWML Mites for Missions. We are still wanting and needing our cut cancelled stamps for Missions.
Å Cheers to 50 Years! Wyneken Family Fun Open House next Sunday, August 26! Kick off with a Tri-church celebration service at St. John, Bingen, starting at 11am. Join us for an open house with kids’ games and lunch at the school following the service. You must RSVP to purchase food tickets. No food tickets will be available the day of the Open House. Do you have any Wyneken School memorabilia? We would love to borrow and display it for the open house. To share your items please contact Abby Wilder at 413-3473.
Å Our Wyneken parents who attend worship here with their Wyneken children are reminded to initial their column on the special books in the narthex. We have begun another 6 months of record keeping for attendance. Recall that each family with their Wyneken children must attend at least 14 services at the church to retain their member tuition status.
Å Sunday School will resume after Labor Day, (Sept. 9) from 9:15-10am. We are in need of teachers for 5-7 grade girls. If you are interested please talk to Tim Hoffman.
Å Note: The Special Voter’s meeting is this Tuesday, August 21 at 7pm. Everyone is encouraged to attend, but ballots may only be cast by eligible voters. See insert for details.
Å Important Dates: August 19 – 12noon All Youth Back-to-School Bash at Pine Lake Waterpark (meet at Bingen parking lot); Sunday, August 26 – 11am Wyneken 50th Anniversary Service (St. John, Bingen).
Å You are cordially invited to attend an Evangelism Conference sponsored by the Indiana District’s Council of Congregational Outreach and hosted by Trinity Lutheran Church in Indianapolis, Indiana on September 7 and 8, 2018. The theme of the conference is “Confessing Christ in a Contentious Culture: Speak the Truth in Love (Ephesians 4:15).”
Å "Prayer list" for members to use as they bring the needs of others before God's throne of grace: Cathy Terhune has miraculously shown improvement; Marilyn Harvey; Rae Fuhrmann (long time Wyneken teacher).
Å Even out of Jesus’ mouth the Gospel causes offense (John 6:61, 66). Yet to whom else shall we go? Shall we take refuge in the empty, ever-changing trends of politically correct popular opinion? Only the Savior speaks life—abundant life, eternal life, life for free, life for all (6:63). If our words do not declare and deliver life, they do not come from the Lord. O Wisdom from on high, let Your goodness fill our hearts and mouths. Amen.
Å The lessons for next Sunday are Isaiah 29:11-19; Eph. 5:22-33; Mark 7:1-13.

Sermon: John 6:51-69
It has been said “We go to the Sacrament as though going to our death, so that we might go to our death as though going to the Sacrament.” Today Jesus himself again invites you to his Sacrament, to his holy, life-giving banquet: “Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.” John 6:54
