Weekly Announcements
Week of June 17, 2019
SIXTY DAY JOURNEY: Responding to a request from the Lutheran World Federation Council which acknowledged the pervasive incidence of violence around the world, the ELCA has produced A 60 Day Journey Toward Justice in a Culture of Gun Violence. This is a daily prayer resource which begins on June 16. Copies of this resource are available for your review in both the upper and lower gathering areas. If you would like a copy for your own use, please contact Christina in the church office.
HOUSE OF COMPASSION: Last Sunday during the joint worship with Our Savior Church all loose offerings that were received were donated to the House of Compassion. $176.91 was collected and donated.
THANK YOU: to everyone who made last Sunday’s Pentecost celebration with Our Savior such a great success! Special thanks to the Outreach and Fellowship Committees, and all who worked beforehand cleaning up the church building, enabling us to “put our best foot forward.”
RADIO MINISTRY: It is that time again to think about Elim’s 2020 Radio Ministry! There are so many that appreciate our program each Sunday and we would like to continue this ministry to our shut-ins and the community. We ask that you think about sponsoring a week or two. The 2020 sign-up sheet is on the table in the narthex. The cost is $75 per week. Thank you!
COMMEMORATIONS: June 21: Onesimus Nesib, translator and evangelist (died 1931)
MARSHALLTOWN MEN’S CHORUS: The Marshalltown Men’s Chorus will join our Sunday worship at 9:00 am on Sunday, June 23.  Members of the chorus wish to thank Elim for allowing the group to use the Fellowship Hall each week for rehearsal.  We do appreciate your support!  
SUPPORT ELIM WHILE YOU SHOP! Did you know that you can support Elim just by shopping! When you shop at AmazonSmile Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase, on eligible orders, to Elim. Just go to Smile.Amazon.Com, choose Elim Lutheran Church; Marshalltown, IA, and start shopping to support Elim!
ELIM ACTIVE RETIREES: Thursday, June 20 join us as lunch is served at 11:30am with a program by Joann Neven on calendar art following lunch. Every retiree of the congregation and friends interested are welcomed each third Thursday for fellowship, information and inspiration as well as some good food. To ensure adequate preparation, a signup sheet is in the narthex of the church. A free-will donation will be collected to cover the cost of food. Any balance left over will be given to the Emergency Food Box. Come enjoy an afternoon of fun!

OASIS DEADLINE: Please send in any announcements or articles to the church office by Monday, June 24 to be included in the July Oasis.
THANK YOU: to everyone who participated in the Elim Clean-up last weekend. Many hands made for lighter work, to keep our household of faith looking good and functioning well.
WELCOME: This weekend we welcomed Karen Weltzin as a new member of our congregation. Please introduce yourselves and welcome her to all that is ours here in Jesus Christ. Welcome Karen! 
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY: Our Savior’s has asked us to provide salads and desserts to feed 12 Habitat for Humanity workers at Our Saviors on the evening of Wednesday, June 26. If you can assist with this, please let the church office know at your earliest convenience.
Have a great week!
