Building Healthy Families The Scriptures are full of references to mothers and their unique qualities. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 isn’t typically thought of as one of them, but there are many mothers who are great examples of the high calling of love described there:  Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. Happy Mother’s Day to all women who so lovingly care for others! -Lutheran Family Service


Church Property - Make sure if you are the last to leave the church that all lights are turned off and all doors are locked.  We have had some instances where doors have been left unlocked for a period of time. 


Cookbook Our Saviors Lutheran in Swea City are publishing a second cookbook that will be available.  This new cookbook also includes all the recipes from the first cookbook published in 1976 and recipes from the past 40 years.  We would like to get an estimate of how many cookbooks to order and there is a sign-up paper on the table in the back of the church if you are interested in purchasing one.   Please, pay in advance and give your money to Rosann in the church office. Due date is June 1.    Nina Harbaugh
