"Act like a man" what a bit of advice from David that is, huh? What does this mean? Well according to David it means: "being strong", walking in obedience to God, keeping his decrees and commands, etc. It means being a good Christian example as a husband and as a father. It means being a leader in faith!
I have seen a lot of men, especially in the last few years, shirk their responsibilities as fathers and husbands in being the SPIRITUAL leaders of their families and their congregations. Oh, they may work hard and they aren't bad guys, they even love their families, but when it comes to things like praying with their families, worship attendance, or Bible study and/or devotions, they are dropping the ball.
Guess what happens. Kids see that and they say to themselves and others, I can't wait till I don't have to go to Sunday school or confirmation class anymore. They see their parents not participating and they think that this is the way it should be.
MEN, Consider this a challenge today! Act like a man! Pray with your kids! Make sure they are in worship and Sunday school and make sure that YOU are too! This is your God given responsibility, and it will ensure that you have done everything to make sure your children are believers and are in heaven with you someday! ACT LIKE A MAN WHO LOVES JESUS!!
Prayer: Lord God, bless us as men as we fulfill our roles and husbands and fathers so that we ACT LIKE MEN! Amen.

JUST A FEW SPACES LEFT IN THE THREE YEAR OLD LITTLE LAMBS CLASS FOR NEXT YEAR!!
My name is Kelsey Overbeck and I will be your DCE intern this year from Concordia University Nebraska. I am from a little town called Pocahontas, Missouri
which is in the southeast part of the state with a population of 114 people. I live on a 70 acre farm where we raise angus cattle, a few chickens, a brittany spaniel named Brownie, and a boston terrier named Cooper. My parents are Pat and Doug Overbeck; my dad is a line technician for Proctor & Gamble and my mom is disabled with Multiple Sclerosis, I also have a 16 year old sister named Lindsey who is a sophomore at
Saxony Lutheran High School.
Jackson, Missouri. I have been involved in my church praise band for 8 years playing acoustic guitar and bass guitar. I was a member of the Missouri District LYF Team during high school where I helped plan and lead retreats in the state of Missouri and I continued to help with the Jr. High retreats in the fall and spring while in college. I love being at retreats and serving on missions trips. I have been to New Orleans six different times helping with hurricane Katrina relief, I have helped with the Joplin tornado relief two different times, and I have worked with UKANDU missions in inner city Chicago
teaching VBS to kids living in poverty.
Nebraska alongside DCE Rod Lane. At school I was involved in two different praise bands each year and was able to travel to different churches throughout the state of Nebraska on Sunday mornings; I have also had the opportunity to play at the NYG in San Antonio, Texas and at the LEA Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Also while at
Concordia I was the Bulldog mascot for a year. My passion is working with youth and helping them on their faith walk with Christ. I strive to be a positive role model to them as well. One of my biggest strengths that I
bring into youth ministry is a listening ear because a lot of times they just want someone to be there to listen and talk to. I am very excited to be a part of your church during my internship experience! I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me at St. John’s
In Him, For Him,

PASTOR NEEDS SPONSORS FOR HIS BIKE ACROSS KANSAS!!
I will be biking across part of Kansas, about 250 miles in all, on June 7-9 to raise money for Leadachild.org. Lead a Child is a LCMS recognized service organization that provides funding for kids to attend schools, many of them Christian schools, in third world countries. It has provided A LOT for ministries and missions to help kids who would otherwise have NO EDUCATION in places like Guatemala, Kenya, Uganda, Mexico, and many other places. Please consider supporting me so that we can continue to support children throughout the world! As of January 1, I am also on the board of directors for this organization.
