Cantor's Farewell Breakfast
In celebration of Cantor Muth's ministry among us at MLCS there will be a breakfast in her honor between services on Sunday, 11 June. To help make this possible the fellowship board is asking for breakfast casseroles. The casseroles will need to be delivered either before or during early service. Please contact Mike Jeffers  if you are able to provide one. 
From the Vicar
Tongues of Fire
Sunday, we celebrate Pentecost, when the tongues of fire descended on Peter and the crowd and each heard Peter's preaching in their own language. This was the work of the Holy Spirit. How does the Holy Spirit work among us? Certainly, the Holy Spirit has given us God's Word, which people of many different tongues can read, hear and learn about, but it is the Holy Spirit who keeps us in the faith by this Word. The Holy Spirit drives away the old, evil foe by keeping us firm in our faith and rooting us in God's Word.
Sunday's Scripture Readings & Hymns

Hymns: LSB 500, 497, 768, 501, 503
VBS Breakfast Help
VBS is almost here!  Each morning during the week, generous donors provide breakfast for our VBS volunteers.  If you are interested in donating food items, please contact Kim Bohot by clicking her name.  We need a few donations for each day of the week during VBS.  Some ideas are: donuts, bagels, coffee cake, breakfast tacos, juice, milk, granola bars, yogurt,... or a cash donation to help cover cost.  We appreciate your willingness to help with VBS.  THANK YOU to everyone involved!
