LET US GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD
Our sanctuary was dedicated 50 years ago this month, on May 14, 1972. “Within Your temple, O God, we meditate on Your unfailing love.” So declared the saints of old in Psalm 48. So do we today.
ANNUAL LUTHERAN LAYMEN’S LEAGUE ZONE BANQUET
is right around the corner on Sunday, May 22. This year’s event is at South Shore Trinity (2480 S. Shore Blvd. White Bear Lake, MN). The ladies at South Shore Trinity are excited to serve a meal of Meatloaf with all the fixings! Arrive sometime soon after 5:00 p.m. to register and find seats. Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. TO RESERVE A SPOT, please call DEL JENTZ @ 651-636-2297 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Reservations will help immensely. You can pay for the evening when you arrive. The cost for the event is $10.00 per person or $20 for couples. Checks can be made payable to the ST. PAUL LLL ZONE. If a wonderful dinner with all the satisfying trimmings (did we mention the dessert???) is not enough to entice you to register, consider the facts: The entertainment is always exceptional. Our speaker will be extremely interesting and intriguing. You might win a valuable door prize. The fellowshipping opportunity with others interested in the effective spread of the Gospel in and of itself makes this annual event a “winner”.
THE ASCENSION OF OUR LORD
Forty days after he rose from the dead, Jesus ascended back into heaven. We will celebrate this special occasion on Sunday, May 29, which is also the final Sunday of the Easter season.
