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 THIS 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 Pastor
Trinity
"...we worship one God in Trinity and Trinity in Unity, neither confusing the persons nor dividing the substance.  For the Father is one person, the son is another, and the Holy Spirit another.  But the Godhead of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit is one, the glory equal, the majesty coeternal." -Athanasian Creed, lines 2-6 (LSB)
 
On Trinity Sunday, we have the opportunity to pause, reflect and give thanks for the wonderful works of God which we have encountered in our hymns, readings, and sermons from Advent to Pentecost.  We think of our creation, our redemption, our new and everlasting life with God.  All these gifts have been provided for us by the one, true God.  All three persons, have been active in their provision.   Indeed, we are a blessed people.  Blessed by God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Sunday's Scripture Readings & Hymns

Hymns: LSB  578, 498, 507, 689, 940
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!
