Our annual Penny War begins today and will run through Palm Sunday. This year we are raising money to buy “rice ducks” for poor Philippine farmers. These are ducks that increase crop yields by eating bugs and weeds and fertilizing the crops. Their eggs can be used for food or to sell at market. These feathered gifts cost $45 each and we have set a goal of buying 15 ducks. If you want to donate change to this project, give it to a Sunday School student or place it in the jar on the book nook. Our total will be announced on Easter Sunday.

Special Mission envelopes for January and February are designated to help Heart, Love and Soul Food Pantry of Niagara Falls. This mission runs both a soup kitchen and food pantry. The need during the winter months is especially great, and your donations will help feed our neighbors in need.

Due to popular demand Camp Pioneer is holding another Reconciler Training March 16-17, 2012. The Coaching Practicum prepares leaders- pastors, elders, teachers, administrators, and parents to guide other people in their conflicts through coaching one-on-one. Almost everyone can benefit from this training, since most of us give advice to others on responding to conflict. More information and registration forms are located on the glass case in the chapel.

People who want to hear and speak Plattdeutsch again will meet in the Wheatfield Community Center, Church Street, St. Johnsburg, on Wednesday, Feb. 29.

If you only want to gab, go to the left meeting room at 12:15 p.m..
