The evangelical Lutheran church of the redeemer

“the little church, the big welcome”



The Evangelical Lutheran Texas Synod of the United Lutheran Church in America meets in Miles, Texas, May 7-9, in Trinity Lutheran Church of which the Rev. Reich Peterson is the pastor.  Our congregation will be represented by Pastor Kern and Mr. William Goebel.  Pastor Kern is the secretary of the Texas Synod.  A report of the Synod meeting will be made at the morning service on May 21st.  The Sunday School on May 7th, will be conducted by the assistant superintendent, Mr. P.M. Vickers, and the Morning Service will be conducted by members of the Vestry.  Give these men your support.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------MOTHER’S DAY PICNIC PLANNED to be held in Mason Park

Plans for a proper observance of Mother’s Day, on May 14th, have been made by the Sunday School and Church.

The plans in brief are to convene the Sunday School at 9:30 instead of 11:00 O’clock.  All families and individuals are asked to bring only enough lunch for themselves and friends invited by them.  Immediately after the Morning Service, the entire Sunday School and Church membership will proceed to Mason Park, where we will eat lunch together in the open.  In the afternoon, there will be races, contests, games and a free-for-all baseball game.  Various prizes will be offered.  Mr. P.R. Boebel is in charge of the program.  The Sunday School workers will make a special effort to get all parents, especially the mothers, of all S.S. children to be at the Morning Service and the picnic.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------THE PIANO IS PAID FOR

Let everyone chime in on the doxology!  The thorn in the flesh has been removed.  The piano is paid for.  It was bought in October, 1930 and cost $450.00.  We were allowed $95.00 on our old piano and Mr. Kirschke gave the church the benefit of $95.00 credit with the piano company which he won in a contest.  Several individuals kept paying a dollar a month on the debt.  Recently, the Brotherhood came to the rescue and with the help of the Women’s Missionary Society and the Sunday School, paid it off.



Here is a treat for you.  With Mrs. Ritzen as “menu mistress”, you will be offered a German Supper!  There will be “Schweinebraten, u.s.w.”  A promise has been made by our Scandinavian members to serve a herring supper later; and Irish stew for Irish members!  The date is Tuesday, May 23rd, beginning at 6:00 P.M.  The cost  -- ONLY 25 cents.
