With The Lord On Monday, Koley O’Brien was called to his eternal home.  His funeral was held at the funeral home on Saturday.  May the Lord comfort those who mourn.  Jesus promises, “I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in me will live.”  (John 11:25)
Flowers Altar flowers this weekend are in memory of George (Bud) Abendroth from Jody & Steve Brooks and Debbie & Robert Malchow.
Easter Lilies We have many members who remember their loved ones, on Easter.  How wonderful it is to know that we will be with our loved ones when Christ raises us all from the dead, just as he was raised from the dead on Easter.  Here is a list of all the loved ones being remembered today.

Congregational Forum and Quarterly Voters Meeting On April 28th our voters meeting and congregational forum will be held at 9:10 am.  Please plan to attend the meeting - be informed, be involved in serving the Lord and in serving one another in love. 

Ladies Aid May Meeting will be a Garden Party and potluck at noon on Thursday, May 2nd.  Wear or bring your favorite garden or sun hat and share any “garden” stories (vegetable, flower, or rock gardens).  Guests are encouraged to join us.   A devotion will be included.
Strength to Go On - help for those who have lost someone they love to suicide On Tuesday, April 30th at 6:30 pm, Dr. Brandon Hayes from WELS Christian Family Solutions will give a presentation for those who have lost a loved one or friend to suicide.  Here is a brief summary of the information he will share:  Losing a loved one can be devastating.  Losing a loved one to suicide is in many ways unique and can add additional challenges, pressures, confusion, and in some cases shame, to an already difficult time.  And, the grieving process looks very different for everyone and seeing others grieve differently does not mean they don’t care.  Thankfully, we know the peace and comfort that flow from God’s never changing promises.  This presentation will discuss the various stages of grief (and how they may be different with a suicide), address several common facts and myths regarding suicide, and review steps to help survivors move forward (while not forgetting your loved one).
This presentation is for our congregation and also for anyone in the community who would like to attend.  Please feel free to invite others to attend.
Family Fun Day - Join us at the Oshkosh YMCA (20th Ave) on Sunday May 19 from 2-4 pm for swimming, open gym or just to hang out.  We will rent a room for food and fellowship.  We will also pay for families who don't have a YMCA membership.
