Thank you for your continued prayers for the life and mission of this church.

22 Promise to respond to those we encounter who are struggling, homeless, lonely, grieving or ill; ask the Spirit to encourage, equip and guide us

when we feel ill-equipped to love and care for our neighbor.

23 Thank God for our special relationship with The Episcopal Church, a full communion partner with the ELCA since 1999. Pray for the church,

its members and its leaders, that together we will find strength and resources for the work of sharing the gospel and serving our neighbor, especially in these challenging times.

24 Among your siblings in Christ, who has surprised you with their welcoming spirit, generosity, wisdom or eagerness to share their faith?

Give thanks to God for people who unexpectedly enrich our lives.

25 Give thanks for young adults from across the country who have responded to the call to serve in summer ministries at ELCA camps.

Ask the Spirit to equip, inspire and sustain them for sharing their faith in Christ and developing caring communities of faith with campers of all backgrounds, abilities and ages.

26 Ascension Day  “Clap your hands, all you peoples; shout to God with loud songs of joy. For the Lord, the Most High, is awesome, a great king over all the earth” (Psalm 47:1-2).

Praise and honor our wonderful God!

27 “The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything, and remind you of all that I have said to you” (John 14:26).

Remember in prayer the gift of the Spirit in our midst, working through us to call, gather, enlighten, bless and unify the church on earth.

28 Pray for the ELCA Justice for Women program and its work fostering gender awareness, justice and dignity, that our congregations and communities might value,

embrace and be shaped by the unique voices and experiences of people across race, ethnicity, ability, class, sexuality and age.

Thank you for your continued prayers for the life and mission of this church.

15 Pray that we will be faithful to Jesus’ commandment to love one another, and pray that we might be recognized as disciples of Christ and communities of faith

through our Spirit-inspired acts of love, kindness, service, justice and hospitality.

16 Remember in prayer the conflict in Ethiopia, which has caused displacement, suffering and loss of life among the most vulnerable — women, children and older adults.

Pray for relief, hope and strength for those who have been impacted and for an end to the violence and ethnic discrimination. Give thanks for the relief work of Lutheran World Relief

and the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus, and for the financial support of Lutheran Disaster Response.

17 Ask the Spirit to stir our enthusiasm for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the world, that all people might know the boundless love of God that renews

and unites us as siblings in Christ.

18 Pray that we might not grow weary or apathetic about the needs of our neighbor, especially when their difficulties and situations seem complicated, overwhelming

or distant from us. Ask the Spirit to nurture within us love and concern that are enduring, impartial and wise.

19 Praise God for everything that brings joy, hope, encouragement or brightness into our lives.

20 Pray for the leaders, voting members and others gathering for the assemblies of the Pacifica, Greater Milwaukee, Southeastern Iowa and Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast synods,

that the Spirit will strengthen, guide and encourage them as they reflect on the mission of the church, choose leaders, proclaim the gospel, serve our neighbor and do God’s work

in the world.

21 Pray for the leaders, voting members and others gathering for the assembly of the Northwestern Minnesota Synod, that the Spirit will strengthen, guide and encourage them

as they reflect on the mission of the church, choose leaders, proclaim the gospel, serve our neighbor and do God’s work in the world.

We celebrate our 150th Anniversary on Sunday June 5th, 2022.

The Bishop is coming and all members and friends who worship regularly with us are invited to a meal immediately after the service. The menu is pulled pork sandwiches, sides by Fretty Catering, and cake by Ryke’s Bakery. We will have a sign-up sheet at church or you may RSVP by calling the office. Please also consider signing up to set up or clean up. We hope for a picnic outside but will be prepared for seating indoors as it may still be snowing in June. Stay tuned!
