Central Africa Medical Mission News…
Baptized in the 10:45 am service today is Everly Ann Becker, infant daughter of William and Melissa (nee Voss) Becker, who are members at Redeemer Lutheran in Ann Arbor. She was born on April 27, 2017. Sponsors are Garrett and Lindsay Salisbury and Chadd Becker. May God keep Everly in baptismal grace all the days of her life.
Summer Schedule: Our summer worship schedule will begin the weekend of May 28 (Memorial Day), and will run through Labor Day weekend. For those weeks, we will add a 7 pm Thursday night service in an effort to accommodate those who travel during summer weekends. The Thursday night services are the same service as the Sunday that follows them. The first Thursday night service will be on May 25. In that service, and in the service on Sunday, May 28 we will celebrate our Savior’s triumphant ascension into heaven.
New Teacher: We were blessed to receive a new graduate from the synod’s Assignment Committee. Miss Charlotte Huebner has accepted our call to teach grades 1-4 and play organ here at Divine Grace. Miss Huebner comes very highly recommended and we look forward to her joining our DGLS Family. Please keep her in your prayers as she prepares to move from her hometown of Sun Prairie, WI here to Lake Orion in the next several weeks. We pray that she will be as much a blessing to us as Miss Laich has been! We will welcome Miss Huebner in a special installation service, which will likely be held in late July or early August.
Farewell to Miss Marie Laich: Miss Laich has accepted the call to teach at Eastside Lutheran School in Madison, Wisconsin starting next school year. While she will be sorely missed here at DGLS, we are so grateful to have had her serving here among us these past years and are confident that she will be a wonderful blessing to Eastside. We wish her all of God’s richest blessings! We plan on having her Farewell Luncheon on June 11th. This will be a chance for us to express our gratitude to her for all that she has done here at Divine Grace over the years. A luncheon will follow the 10:45 service on that day. The main course will be provided. Those wishing to attend are asked to sign up in the Fellowship Hall or school office. You may also want to remember her with a card and/or gift.
Thank you, Sunday School Teachers: Today is the final class of regular children’s Sunday School for this school year. Thank you to our faithful Sunday School teachers for all the time and effort donated. Please turn in your Teacher’s Guides to the school office after class today.
