ST JACOBI NEWS & NOTES
SEARCHING THE SCRIPTURES THIS WEEK
If you are looking for a way to read your Bible every day, you might want to use this list for a
chapter of God’s Word for each day this week.
Exodus 33, 34, 35; Psalm 17; James 4, 5; 1 Peter 1
IN-PERSON WORSHIP CONTINUES IN LIMITED CAPACITY-- As we begin to worship again we will be doing so with limited capacity. Our service times will be at 5:00 pm on Saturday, 8:15 am, and 10:00 am on Sunday as well as 7:00 pm on Monday. If you are intending to worship here at church, we ask that you sign up using the link to Sign-up Genius found by clicking on the "Church Service Sign-up" button on the St. Jacobi website. In this way we will have an idea of how many to expect. A list of procedures and precautions that we will observe was sent out via email to members.
PRAYERS: We join Helmuth and Helene Rogalla in thanking God as they celebrate their 63rd wedding anniversary August 16th.
-- We pray for the family of Holly Messinger whom the Lord called to heaven on Wednesday, August 12th.
FLOWERS: The flowers have been provided by John and Ebba Stuedemann on the occasion of their 27th wedding anniversary August 14th.
THANK OFFERING: $300 was received from Helmuth and Helene Rogalla on the occasion of their 63rd wedding anniversary.
DEDICATION WEEKEND AUGUST 22-24: The dedication of our new facilities will take place in the regular services on the weekend of August 22-24. A ribbon cutting and (socially distanced) open house will be held between the Sunday services. Be sure to use our on-line sign-up system and encourage prospective visitors to do the same.
WHEN YOU SIGN UP FOR CHURCH SERVICES…please enter a quantity of “1,” even if there are several people in your family unit. Higher quantities inflate the number of family units that sign up and use up the slots that are available. Thank you!
KIDS’ CLUB HELPERS ARE NEEDED! We hope to begin Kids’ Club after Labor Day, and we are looking for those interested in teaching, leading the large group, and gathering materials. An organizational meeting will be held this Tuesday, August 18th, at 6:30 p.m. Contact Jessica Mork at 414-559-0792 or email@example.com if you have questions or desire more information.
CALLING ALL COLLEGE STUDENTS: Please use the information sheet located in the back of church to provide your away address along with other contact information. Even if you are attending college locally and/or remaining at home, we would like to know what your plans are. Your church family at St. Jacobi wants to stay in touch with you even as you are away from home.
2020 CONFIRMATION CLASS PICTURES may be picked up in the back of church.
CHURCH CLEANERS NEEDED – Please consider if becoming a volunteer church cleaner is a way you can serve the Lord. These volunteers save our congregation thousands of dollars each year. We are putting together the schedule for the upcoming year which runs October 2020 through September 2021. There is a sign-up sheet and additional information available on the back table. Thank you.
ST. JACOBI GARDEN CLUB: The new Garden Club will meet August 20th at 6:00 P.M. and will continue to meet each month on the first Tuesday at 8:00 A.M. and on the third Thursday at 6:00 P.M. The purpose is to plant, weed and maintain St. Jacobi’s gardens. Sessions will last no longer than 2 hours. Bring your own gardening gloves, pruners, shovels, hoes, watering cans, masks, and drinking water. They’ve gotten off to a great start! Contact Jane Browne at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 262-565-8801 if you have questions or desire more information.
OUR WEEKLY WORSHIP SERVICES ARE STILL BEING POSTED ON LINE. Go to www.stjacobi.org and follow the live-streaming link, or go directly to St. Jacobi's Youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmnKb2jlWH-woIl9GRYW2fw.
IN ADDITION TO ON-LINE SERVICES, YOUR PASTORS HAVE BEEN POSTING DAILY DEVOTIONS ON LINE. Go to our school's Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/pg/St-Jacobi-Lutheran-School-1843286309320096/videos/ These devotions enable us to run to our Lord and His promises on a daily basis in these times of trouble.
PLEASE LET US KNOW OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE INTERNET ACCESS. We will try our best to serve them in some way with God's Word, perhaps DVD recordings or sermon copies. Quite a number of people are being served in this way!
