LUTHERAN HOUR:  “Pigeonholed” (John 6:  42) – Just when you think you are getting to know Jesus, He says something which can confuse.  Today the world remains confused about God’s Son, our Saviour.  That’s because Jesus refuses to be pigeonholed by the world’s desires or expectations.  He’s God’s Son, Who has come to save humankind.  Anything else, or different than this, is simply unacceptable.  Listen to today’s Speaker Rev. Dr. Ken Klaus on Sunday mornings at 1130AM at 6:30 a.m., 1600AM at 9:00 a.m., or 560AM at noon.  Streaming audio and pod-casts at www.lutheranhour.ca.

LEADING WORSHIP TODAY in both services is Pastor Charles Schulz of Ann Arbor, Michigan.  He’s a good friend of our congregation, having helped us frequently during the last pastoral vacancy, and it always does us good to see him again!

PASTOR BUGBEE RETURNS TO THE OFFICE on Friday of this week.  If an emergency arises in the meantime, please contact Pastor Glenn Stresman (he can be reached by calling the church office at 519-256-2667).

CHURCH OFFICE CLOSURES THIS WEEK:  Our church office will only be open this week, Tuesday to Friday (August 14 to 17), from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

SAVE THE DATE!  The weekend of July 17-19, 2020, has tentatively been set for the “100th Anniversary Festival,” marking a century since our church was formally organized in the living room of a private home at 776 Windsor Avenue.  Broad outlines of plans for the celebration are emerging, and there’s a lot of “filling in” to be done … but, for now, please set the date aside and don’t make plans to be anywhere but here with us!
