A Church Worship Service Bulletin that gets weekly updates

Suddenly, with the past day or so, my OpenOffice 4.0.1 Writer on my office PC (Windows 7 OS) recognizes every word as misspelled when I want to spellcheck a document. I did not change any settings and it was working perfectly before this. I have the identical OpenOffice program on my home PC (also Windows 7 OS) and I have no problem. I am the only person who uses my office PC so it is not a matter of anyone having switched any options.

This not only happens with documents created a while ago that I update every week, but also with new documents.

I am attaching a document as an example: a church worship service bulletin that gets updated every week.

Thank you for any assistance you can give me.
