LENT IS HERE. This year the NALC congregations in the area will again be doing a Lenten round robin of the pastors. The theme for the Lenten round robin will be: Citizenship Has Its Privileges, and will look at some of the saints and martyrs of the Bible. Plan to come and worship the Lord as we hear about His faithfulness to keep His people in His care, even through persecution and death. This week Rev. James Lehmann will speak about Peter. The Lord is faithful, come and worship Him! Lenten light suppers are planned for each Wednesday at 5:45 pm. The Lenten services will be at 7:00pm each Wednesday evening. The Wednesday Lenten offerings have been designated to the C-U at Home Homeless Shelter and Water Missions.
SOCIAL OUTREACH COMMITTEE Looking for Social outreach committee members- if you are interested in helping with planning the Candlewood summer lunches, the Walk for Water, Helping Hands or Sunday’s Movie and Lunch dates then join us on the Social Outreach Committee! We are looking for a “few good men and women” that would like to work on these projects. If interested contact Cheryl Heinold or Marilyn Feigl.
EASTER BREAKFAST We are planning to come together for an Easter breakfast, no April fools! East is on April 1, 2018. Even though it’s April Fools Day, there will be many varieties of breakfast foods available at 8am. Hopefully we can get our high school youth involved making pancakes and our women to make some egg casseroles. There will be plenty for our men to do with table set up and tear down. This is no joke or hoax, the donations will go to the “missions” at our church. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead on March 11, 2018 for Daylight savings time. Then you will have an opportunity to think about the wonderful menu item you would like to contribute. For questions, you can call Richey Vanderspool at 217-649-9893.
ATTENDANCE for Sunday, March 4th was 76.
