WELCOMEto our Visitors – We are glad you can be with us today for Divine Service. If you have not been to Faith before, please feel free to leave your name and address in the Guest Register in the narthex.  We would like to keep in touch with you.  Welcome in the name of the Lord!

Catchesis– there will be a meeting of parents who desire their children (going into Grade six or seven) to enter catechesis on Thursday, September 6that 7pm

 

Just a friendly reminder– please refrain from wearing perfumes or other strong scents when coming to worship, in care for your sisters and brothers who are scent-sensitive.  Thank you!

 

Help out our counters

If you wish to support the mission team (talk to Jane about going along) which will happen when it is safe to go, please mark Hon-Nico Missionon the same line.  (Hon-Nicois short for Honduras-Nicaragua, as we have been requested to bring some support to the work in Honduras). Right now we are not collecting donations to help the crisis in Nicaragua, as funds have already been provided.  We will let you know if that situation changes.

Thank you!!!

 

PLEASEtake a look at the Usher Calendarin the narthex, and pick ONE Sunday when you can usher. We’d like to fill in the services for the July/August calendar today.  We are thankful for those who serve, but it will be great to know each service has ushers scheduled in advance…

 

TODAYas we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion we will receive the body and blood of our Saviour.  We receive the forgiveness of our sins and the strengthening of our faith.  Since the Lord’s Supper is an expression of our common confession of the Christian faith, we ask that only those persons who are members of a congregation of the Lutheran Church-Canada, or LCMS receive the Sacrament.  Those who would like more information about this doctrine or any other teachings of the Lutheran church are asked to speak to our pastor.

 

A Communion Request – all children who are not confirmed and not yet communing – as well as adults who are visiting or are not yet catechized in the Lutheran confession – are welcome to the Lord’s Table for a baptismal blessing. We would simply ask that those who are not communing would cross their arms over their chestso that the elder assisting knows they are not receiving the host.  Thanks to all – this will be a really big help.
