WE ARE SUPPORTING “Christ’s Care For Children” in Kenya during the first quarter of 2019. Christ’s Care for Children: Kenya is a child sponsorship program, initiated by the LCMS Office of International Mission. It is directly linked to the Project 24 sites in Kenya. It is through care and compassion for these children that they receive safe housing, food, education and spiritual care. Each site is strategically located near an Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya church and school so that the children can receive academic as well as spiritual teaching and care.
THE BOARD OF YOUTH is sponsoring a congregation sledding outing on Sunday, March 3 at 1:30 PM. We will gather at Tom O’Leary snow hill and then return to the church for refreshments.
ASH WEDNESDAY is March 6 as we begin the season of Lent. The Board of Elders will serve a soup and sandwich supper beginning a 6:00 PM followed by the Ash Wednesday service at 7:00 PM. The theme for our mid-week Lenten services will be “Behold The Man.”
THE STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE has planned a movie (“I Can Only Imagine”) for a family fun night event at the church on Friday, March 15th at 7:00pm. Please join us! Bring a snack to share (optional).
