News and Notes May 24, 2020



    We Welcome Mrs. Nancy Koeneman as our guest organist this morning.


    Services of the Church. For the summer months, our services will be at 8am and 9:15. To care for those who have not received the Sacrament, each service will be a Divine Service with the Lord’s Supper. The fellowship hall and balcony will be opened to provide extra seating. You do not need to make an appointment with Pastor Yeager to attend the services of the Church.


    Park-In opportunity. For those who would rather not enter the building, we will continue to broadcast one service (9:15am) on the radio at 106.1FM and live-streaming on Facebook.


    A Recorded Version of each Sunday’s service will also be posted on YouTube’s St. Paul, Preble page before each Sunday service for those who will be staying at home.


    Confirmation. We rejoice with all eight of our confirmands who have been examined individually by Pr. Yeager and welcomed to the Lord’s Supper. They are: Hilton Bluhm, Beau David, Aiden Faurote, Madison Fisher, Kord Fuelling, Jack Hamilton, Amanda Rabel, and Madelyn Reinhart. We look forward to a further easing of restrictions so that we can celebrate the Rite of Confirmation with these eight students together in one service. More info to follow.


    Offerings and E-Giving. To set up automatic online giving from your bank or financial center, go to the Congregation’s website, www.splutheranpreble.org, click the Online Giving tab in the upper right corner of the homepage, then click the Donation Link provided, set up your online giving profile, and follow the simple instructions. This is a safe, easy and automatic way to tithe to the Church. For those who have already established online giving, your offerings are being recorded by the Church’s financial secretary. We give thanks for your gifts to St. Paul.


    Adult Catechism is meeting at 6pm Sundays in the fellowship hall. We are meeting tonight, however we will not meet every Sunday because we are trying to coordinate with the schedules of everyone in the class. If you are interested in Adult Catechism talk with Pr. Yeager.


    We give thanks to God for Jud and Libby Bleeke, who left $6,000 from their estate to St. Paul. The Voters Assembly determined to put these funds into the Memorial Fund.


    Portals of Prayer. Lots of copies are in the narthex for you. Take one as you leave.
