About the Cover:  God’s creation is most important to Him. He created us and all things by His powerful Word and abundant love, placing mankind at the head of His creation. We are His gem, created in His image, with the rest of the creation serving our good. And even after sin entered the world, God did not abandon His creation. He sent His Son into the fallen world to redeem and save us and, even now, orders all of creation for the good of His people.

Our Savior’s is Going to the Ball Game! We have reserved a block of tickets for the July 16th Moondogs game. If you would like to purchase tickets for this game, please stop in the office during regular office hours. Or, there will be a table in the Narthex to purchase tickets on July 9th and July 16th.

Rebekah Circle Bible Study will meet for Potluck lunch on Tuesday, June 27th at noon in the Fireplace Room.

Blue Ribbon Bible Club this week, June 28 from 6-7pm, is on how God gives us our daily bread. The Bible story is on the Manna and Quail given in the desert. You can check out pictures and watch the skits on our website, oslcmankato.org. Scroll down to recent news. Just a reminder we won’t be gathering on July 5.

LWML Board Meeting on Tuesday, July 11 at 2pm in the Library.

Join us for an exciting week at VBS July 31 – Aug 4. Many volunteers are utilized to create a special week of learning. How might you contribute this year? Let Deaconess Lisa Brand (507-385-2185 or [email protected]) know if you are willing to help in any way.

Millions of Children who received shoebox gifts packed by people like you have spent recent months participating in The Greatest Journey, the discipleship program developed by Samaritan’s Purse for children who receive Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts.  Trained volunteer teachers lead them through Bible stories, invite them to trust Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and teach them how to share the Gospel with friends and family.  Over the past seven years, 11 million children have participated in The Greatest Journey, and more than five million of them have given their hearts to Christ. Praise God!

Donations Needed:  We are collecting paper towel and toilet paper tubes for a VBS craft project the summer.  Please place donations in the box in the narthex.  Thank you for your help and support!

The participants in the Reopening the Back Door class highly recommend it to others. We finished last week, and those there are eager to learn and do more. Once our Stephen Leaders are back from training we’ll make a schedule for upcoming classes. If this is a taste of what is to come, it will be a feast.

The LWML District Retreat Invitation news is available on Page 5 of the WOM.  Isaiah 26:4 “Trust in the Lord forever . . . . an everlasting rock.”  The Lord is my Rock at AmericInn Hotel, Mankato, on July 28 and 29.  Register now.

From the Stewardship Committee:  Romans 6:13 “Present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.” Everything we have – even our own existence, our very selves – is a gift from God to be used for His purposes. God has called you to be His own and has given you tasks to perform in home, church, and society. How will you serve Him today?
