Our dear brother in Christ, Al Rosebrock, was called to his eternal home yesterday. Even as we mourn, we rejoice in the promises God made to Al in his baptism, promises he firmly believed. His body, sanctified by the Holy Spirit, now rests until the last day. His soul, purchased by the blood of Christ, rejoices in the loving presence of his Father.
The funeral will take place at St. Paul's this Thursday, March 24th, at 12pm, with visitation from 10am. A luncheon will follow at the grade school. All members are welcome to gather around Christ's promises, receive comfort from God's Word, and to comfort the family. Friends are also welcome to visit with the family at the Wakeman Funeral Home, 1218 N. Michigan Ave., on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul:
he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
