Retirement Celebration Thank You

2022-07-02 08:51:10 dporzel

Hits: 3317

Praise the Lord and thank you for the overwhelming celebration of retirement last Sunday. Our
family was moved and impressed by your great show of love and appreciation. Comments that
you shared about worship services, visits, baptisms, weddings, funerals, etc., stirred our hearts.
Thank you to the committee, musicians, staff, Pr. Chuck and all the volunteers who made our
worship of the Lord so special and celebration so meaningful. And thanks so much for the many
cards and gifts. The monetary gifts have exceeded $19,000 and will go towards our “camper
and truck traveling grandparent and family show.” Thank you for your generosity, and for your
faithful stewardship over the years. You are truly graced and gracious in the LORD.
While the days ahead will mean stepping back into retirement and part-time ministry in NID
congregations, you will be in our prayers. When you send devotional prayer requests to Pastor
Chuck and the office, please feel free to copy us at rohlfsrj@icloud.com and they will be part of
our devotional prayer.
And…Lord God, grant your grace and direction, we pray, to Christ Lutheran and Pastor
Johnson that the Gospel of Christ might go forth in new and effective ways for the life of many,
in Jesus’ name; and as Pr. Walt always added, In the name of the Father and of the † Son and
of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Pr. Ray and Jo Ann, June 29

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AT CHRIST LUTHERAN

2021-09-06 08:52:31 dporzel

Hits: 3317


WELCOME COMMITTEE With all of the new faces coming to our
church, we need friendly volunteers who would help make visitors feel
welcome here at Christ Lutheran. This is something new, so we can
most certainly entertain ideas you may have. Text Pastor Johnson at
309-531-4868 for more information.


HOLY SMOKERS ARE RECRUITING!! When we originally asked for volunteers to join this fun
little group, we had well over 30 people interested. I will be sending out letters shortly from that
list (which we gathered before Covid). However, if you are interested in cooking with the Holy
Smokers, we would love to have you! Level of involvement is strictly up to you. If you want to
learn how to smoke excellent food only, that is fine. If you want to help with fund raisers and
church events, that is fine. If you want to be part of a group that will respond to disasters in
efforts to feed the displaced and emergency workers, you can do that too. Please text Pastor
Johnson at 309-531-4868 if interested.


HELP IN THE NURSERY If you love little babies and would graciously give up
some time during the 10:00 service, we could use your help! Our nursery has
moved, been remodeled, and we have new toys and pagers for parents. Help
young families by volunteering your time to watch young ones in the nursery
during the 10:00 service. Text Pastor Johnson 309-531-4868 for more
information.

“EDUCATION IS OUR BAG” FUNDRAISER “

2021-08-15 11:31:43 dporzel

Hits: 3317

I am part of a wonderful international women’s philanthropy organization: P.E.O. International. We help women of all ages fund their education through grants and low-cost loans. Women all across the U.S. and Canada contribute to these educational funds through local fundraisers. Our fundraiser is called “Education Is Our Bag”. We collect gently used handbags and resell them at local fairs. 100% of all the money we raise is used to fund women’s education. All you have to do is go through your closet and pull out those unused handbags. Text or email me (708-334-0277 or clmtcm10@gmail.com), and I will pick them up. To learn more about this organization, visit the website: www.peointernational.org.
