times will continue through the summer. Please let us know you were here; fill
out the Fellowship Pad (it’s in the pew rack) with today’s date, name,

WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN? – Children’s Worship bulletins are available in the
Narthex. The cry room is just off the Narthex behind the sound board; please
ask an usher if you need assistance. Please ask your children to not use the
Rite of Fellowship pads and Communion cards for scribbling or drawing. Take
a few extra children’s bulletins if needed by your child during service.

may be started if we see enough interest.
FIX ‘EM UP AND SELL EM?! – Do you have a bike (or 2 or 3) that your kids no
longer use? The youth are collecting used bikes to restore and sell to help
raise funds for the National Youth Gathering next summer. You may be able to
claim the value of your donation(s) on your 2009 taxes! Call Michelle at
PLAY BALL #2! – We hope and pray the week off has given strength and healing
to our team. Cheerleaders are welcome to bring their voices, chairs, snacks,
etc. tonight (Sunday, May 31) at 6:45 pm for another great game and
fellowship. - Coach Dash
START AT THE BEGINNING – The Youth group will meet today in the Youth Room
after the 9:15 am worship service to discuss common questions that people
have about what is written about creation and the Flood of Genesis. There are
just a few more weeks. For more info, contact Pastor Greg. Snacks provided!
PEEK-A-BOOK – Have you seen any stray books in your house? Mixed up with
school stuff or DVD's? Under the couch? In the fridge? Please bring back to
OSLC Library so others can read them, too; they’ve been gone more than 4
months after being checked out just once! Author Melody Carlson: DARK
BLUE, TORCH RED, DEEP GREEN, PITCH BLACK and TASTE BERRIES FOR
TEENS. Please return, no questions asked!
LISTEN UP! – The church’s new website NOW HAS sermons online, accessible
from anywhere in the world, 24-7 thanks to YOU!! Tell your friends, bookmark
the link and listen to the sermon if you miss church. Sermons will be ready by
the Monday AFTER the service.

treasure.” Thank you to those of you with ‘junk’ that became the
‘treasure’ of others during our annual ‘Kids Only Rummage Sale’ held on

cinnamon rolls was $871.

or a portion of a student's tuition. If you are interested, please contact Paul
Steinhaus at 469-6810 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

waiver (and a volunteer form if they did not help last year). Both forms are

LIFE QUOTE – “Did you know there was another ‘mother’s day’ in May? The
Visitation falls on May 31. This day commemorates the visiting of two mothers,
Mary and Elizabeth. Both experienced an ‘unplanned’ pregnancy. Both their
babies were still in their wombs. Both trusted God in seemingly impossible
situations. Mary had said, ‘Let it be to me according to your word’ (Luke
1:38) and Elizabeth also acknowledged God’s presence in her pregnancy
(Luke 1:25).” Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, executive director of Lutherans For Life This “Life Quote” is
from Lutherans for Life –www.lutheransforlife.org
