AFFIRMING THEIR FAITH Anneke Lacina, Savanna Nelson, Kiara Sauve and Brady Leuthner, together with Gabrielle Casavan and Pacey Struthers from Black River Lutheran Church, will be affirming their faith this Sunday morning. Parents and Godparents are invited to join the pastor at the altar for prayers with our confirmands during the confirmation portion of our service. Congratulations to our 8th graders on completing their two years of instruction with the pastor.
PRAYERS FOR HEALING During communion we will be offering prayers for healing. If you wish to have the pastor pray with you simply hand him a note or raise your hand and make your request known.
CONFIRMATION BANQUET Thank you to DeeAnn Leines and our Deacons for a wonderful confirmation banquet for our 8th graders and their parents last Wednesday.
YOUTH LOCK-IN A Lock-In for the Youth Group is tentatively planned for Friday, May 10th with supper beginning at 6:00 pm. Youth and chaperones will have events planned for the evening, spend the night sleeping at the church, and maybe be treated to breakfast by our wonderful men's group Saturday morning. Youth would go home after breakfast. At this point we need to get an idea on how many youth grades 7-12 will be attending so we can make plans. Also if anyone is interested in chaperoning please let us know as well. Contact Jenny Schmitz or Hannah Seeger for more information.
