Announcements for the week of April 10, 2011

You can have your blood pressure checked for free in the chapel after today’s service. Trish Andrews, a nurse practitioner will be available to take your blood pressure today. This is a service offered four times a year by our Board of Social Ministries. Stop by the chapel after church and look for Trish and her helper, Doreen Herbst (also a nurse).

We are excited to announce that we are going to create a new pictorial directory of our church family. The directory will help us connect names with faces. The scheduled dates for photography are April 27 & 28 and May 18. There are sign up sheets for sitting times in both the chapel and the narthex or you can call the church office during the week at 283-1843.

PENNY WAR: Next Sunday is Palm Sunday, and the LAST Sunday to donate to the Sunday School Penny War. Winners will be announced in Sunday School on Easter Sunday. We hope to raise $530 which will provide 200 Lutheran World Relief health kits for refugees around the world. ALL forms of change (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters) can be used to gain points for each team!!

Cookies made from mud to stop their hungry children from crying, dirty water to drink, cardboard boxes for housing–these are just a few of the hardships endured on a daily basis in the countries served by “Food for the Poor”. This agency is our Special Mission Envelope project for March and April. They dig fresh water wells, provide food, build houses, care for

orphans, and provide medical care in the poorest countries of the world. Please keep this agency in your thoughts and prayers, and consider a donation in your Special Mission envelopes to help them in their efforts. Your generosity is appreciated.

Please join us on Wednesday at 6:00pm for a Simple Supper before the 7:00pm Lenten Worship Service.

Next Sunday is the last week to bring in your wrapped bars of soap for LWML collection for Lutheran World Relief.

A Spring Cleanup is planned for church this Saturday, April 16 from 8am to 1pm. We will work inside and out (weather permitting). Please plan on joining us getting the church ready for Easter.

A May Fest is planned for May 7. It will be similar to the Oktoberfest we had a few years ago. There is a sign up sheet on the glass case in the chapel. Flyers and tickets are available in the church office.

Through LCEF Joyful Response program our church can receive electronic payments directly from personal bank accounts of LCEF Steward Accounts. It’s simple, safe, convenient, and makes it easy to be a faithful servant when you are sick or the weather is bad. Interested? Talk to Jon Lehning.

The flowers on the altar today are given to the Glory of God in honor of their 25th Wedding Anniversary yesterday, by Randy and Linda Broeker.
