Greetings in Christ Jesus, Who Leads Me Beside Still Waters and Restores My Soul!
Here are a few brief reminders and announcements to call to your attention to as you head into the weekend:
Tuesday is a big day for our seminarians: Call Day
In February, we made a call for a seminarian candidate from St. Louis Concordia Seminary as our Associate Pastor. Watch live as these faithful men and women learn of their Assignment of Calls and Vicarages (via web streaming).
Assignment of Calls is April 24, 2018, at 7 p.m. (CDT). The link for the St. Louis live stream call service is: callday.csl.edu
Pancake & Sausage Breakfast/Brunch - This Sunday

LWML Bake Sale
Also, Sunday, April 22 – Before and after both services there will be an LWML sponsored Bake Sale to support the Mexico Mission Trip! This is a free will event for the whole congregation. If you are unable able to attend, please label your donated items and bring them to the kitchen. No need to price your items as this will be a free will offering. Thank you for your generous support of these volunteers!
Night of 8th Grade Questioning—All are invited to attend the evening of questioning for our 8th grade confirmation students. The rite of questioning is a major moment for our 8th grade Midweek students and they would be so appreciative of your support. Join us Wednesday, April 25th at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary.
Confirmation group picture will be taken at 6:00pm. Students who are getting individual pictures taken should be at church at 5:30pm.
Good Shepherd Sunday
This Sunday is “Good Shepherd Sunday.” The appointed Psalm for the day is Psalm 23, which is among the most well-known psalms. The Gospel from John 10 records Jesus revealing Himself as the Good Shepherd. While fewer and fewer people are familiar with what it is like to take care of sheep, this metaphor of God’s protection and provision has become a great source of comfort and hope. May God grant that you find such blessed comfort as you dwell securely here in the house of the Lord. Pastor Rajek's sermon for this Sunday is titled "No Other Name" based on Acts 4:1-12. See you Sunday!
It is Christian joy and hope mixed with sadness as funeral services were held Wednesday for Evelyn Sandal. She was 104 years old and was a member of our congregation. One of her daughters was Marlene Young. Thank you for your continued prayers for the Sandal family.
We will be having a VOTER'S MEETING on May 6, 2018 at noon. On the agenda will be the election of officers. Lunch will be served. Please plan on attending. Thank you.
Church Softball Team
Faith Lutheran is again planning to have a men’s softball team. We need a few more players to fill the roster. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact Dennis Ryckman as soon as possible. Must have parent’s permission if under 18.

Thank you so very much to all those who came to worship services on Sunday and to the Saturday evening concert to help us celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation this past weekend! What a wonderful weekend we had together as with voice and song and stringed instruments we praised God's great and glorious name together.
Mariachi San Pablo was an absolute delight to have among us as well! There were individuals from all over the state, the circuit, and the community that came to join us. The choir sang marvelously both in the morning and in the afternoon! The Brass group fortified our singing and added that little extra something special.
The meal yesterday provided by the Parish Fellowship Board was perfect. The special red lighting and sound equipment provided by Oahe Light and Sound added the right touch to the sanctuary and turned out great! The Mariachi's music made us want to dance!!!!
We'll look forward to the next 500th year milestone when we, or rather our great, great, great, great, greats get to celebrate the 1000th! It was truly a good weekend in the Life of God's Church in Pierre, South Dakota. A special thanks again to the many that made it go so smooth and did so much behind the scenes. May the Lord Jesus be praised!!!
