The Focus of Our Worship
Jesus Is Our Good Shepherd

"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me- just as the Father knows me and I know the Father-and I lay down my life for the sheep."

Isaiah 25:8John 10:11-18
April 26, 2015
First Lesson: Ac 4:23-33 Second Lesson: 1 Jn 3:1,2
Psalm: 23 Gospel: Jn 10:11-18

Evangelism Thought for the Week:
Jesus said, "I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd." (John 10:11-18) We are not the only sheep Jesus wants in his sheep pen. He wants us to tell others that he wants to be their Good Shepherd. Invite others to hear the voice of Jesus, the Good Shepherd for all souls.

Thursday Morning Bible Class:
Today we will continue and pick things up in chapter 21 of Revelation. We have only two chapters left. After that we will study a conference paper that Pastor wrote for the last Pastors' conference on contrition and repentance.

Sunday Morning Bible Class:
Today we will have Easter Breakfast and focus on our risen Savior. Next week we will continue and pick things up in chapter 20 of Revelation.

Quarterly Voters' Meeting:
The April Voters' Meeting was Tuesday, April 21st. A copy of the reports is on the counter in the hall. If you have any questions, or if more copies of the reports are needed ask Pastor or one of the councilmen. The voters approved the recommendation to replace the ceiling fans in the church and the fellowship hall.

Monday Worship:
Monday night worship begins at 6:30 p.m. Tell all who can't make it on Sundays, to come on Mondays.

Spring Cleaning:
We are planning a cleaning/work day for the church on Saturday, May 2nd. Please sign up to help on the sign up sheet in the back of church. The more that come the more we can get done to take care of the Lord's property.

Audio Loop:
There is an audio loop installed with our new sound system. For all those who use hearing aids, please set them to the "T" setting for T-coil or telephone. This will help you focus on what is being said or read. If you don't have the T-coil setting, please speak to your Audiologist. All newer hearing aids have it, but some need a software upgrade.

Salem Worship Service Podcast:
Salem's worship service podcast can be found in the Apple ITunes Store by searching for "Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church" or on the Internet at or

Sunday Fellowship:
Thanks to all those who have served for the fellowship after the 10:30 services. There are several Sundays available for serving in the next couple of months. Please sign up on the sheet in the narthex if you would like to host on a Sunday. If you would prefer to donate money for items to be purchased, you may do so. Or if you would like to make some snacks but have someone serve them, you may do that also. Please contact Kathy Grill or Cam Blakeslee if you have any questions about serving.

Interested in Salem:
If you know someone that is interested in learning more about Salem, please give the contact information to our Evangelism Chairman, or Pastor Doletzky.

Flowers For Worship:
We all have the opportunity to supply a fresh bouquet of flowers for the altar during a worship service. Whether in celebration, memory, or just for the many blessings we have received, please sign up for a Sunday on the flower chart in the entry hall. The bouquets are $16.00 for one and $23.95 for two. Please make your check out to the Women's Evening Service Group and everything else will be taken care of for you. Please speak to Nancy Juhl if you have any questions.

Super One Receipts and Labels for Education:
We collect both Super One grocery receipts and Labels for Education (from soup cans, cereals, etc.). Money rebated from the Super One receipts is used to purchase kitchen supplies. The Labels for Education are sent to East Fork Lutheran School in Arizona. Containers for both of these on-going projects are located on the counter in the hallway. Please remember that the receipts need to be one year old or less.
