June 16 – Holy Trinity/Father’s Day – The best fathers guide their children to find their voice instead of stifling it. Even the youngest among us—unborn ones, too!—have a sacred privilege and vocation to take part in testifying of the goodness of our Maker and Savior (Psalm 8:2). Their Gospel-motivated voices may speak without grown-up words, but they strengthen us as evidence of how precious we are to our Heavenly Father even though we are helpless.

We extend our Christian sympathy to the family Charles Christian Kolterman, 75, of Onaga, Kansas, who died Wednesday, June 12, 2018, at the Nemaha Valley Community Hospital in Seneca. He was a life-long resident of the area.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30 am, Wednesday, June 19, 2019, at St. Pauls Lutheran Church in Duluth, Kansas. Reverend Terry DeGiovanni will be officiating. Burial will follow in Home Cemetery. Charlie will lie-in-state, on Tuesday, at the church, beginning at 4:00 pm. The family will greet friends from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm and a Prayer Service will be held at 7:00 pm. They suggest memorial contributions to the American Diabetes Association or the American Heart Association, and those may be sent in care of Campanella-Kufahl Funeral Home.

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.” Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.
