Friday Followings: A Corny Joke and a Few Reminders

First the corny joke.
 
An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. “Where would you like to sit?” he asked politely.
 
“I’d like to sit in the front row please” she answered.
 
“You really don’t want to do that,” the usher said. “The pastor is really boring.”
 
“Do you happen to know who I am?” the woman inquired.
 
“No”, he said.
 
“I’m the pastor’s mother,” she replied indignantly.
 
“Do you know who I am?” the usher asked.
 
“No,” she said.
 
“Good”, he replied.
 
I know. Pretty corny.
 
Now a few reminders.
 
— Registration is open for VBS, June 10-14, and for Next Year’s Church School and Confirmation. Go online, or call the office to check details and to register.
 
–5k for Camp on June 8. This fun run/walk begins at the Gloria Dei parking lot and is open to all. A suggested registration fee of $10 per person or $25 per family will go to support camping ministry through Lutherans Outdoors. Register Here
 
–Our music department is putting together a special Father’s Day Men’s Choir. In addition they are putting together a Worship Choir for a special Broadway in Worship service on June 30. See details regarding rehearsals in our Dei Worker at church, or get more information here.
 
–This Sunday we all have opportunity to give blood, as each day about 100 pints of blood are needed within our local Sioux Falls and surrounding area. Stop by the table in the Gathering Area to register and then head to the Blood Mobile in our parking lot on Sunday to donate.
 
And finally, as we continue in our preaching series on the post-resurrection appearances of Jesus, we find Jesus on the beach preparing breakfast for some of his disciples. Please read John 21:1-19 in preparation for worship.
 
Have a beautiful weekend and I’ll see you in worship.
