Announcements for the week of March 4, 2012

Social Ministries will not meet this Wednesday because of our Lenten service. Instead we will have a short meeting after church next Sunday, March 11 in the Ladies’ Lounge. New members are welcome!

Lenten Devotionals are available on the glass case in the chapel.

Our special mission envelopes for March & April have been designated to help the Magdalene Project of Niagara Falls. This Christian organization, headquartered at St. George’s Church on Falls Street, reaches out to the homeless and poor. Although they serve all who contact them in need, their special focus is on the homeless and abused women in our city who have resorted to a life of prostitution to support themselves or their children. They offer food, clothing, and the word of our Lord as they drive through our streets at night, searching out those in need. They have also started an after school program where young children can feel safe while they learn about Jesus through Bible lessons, crafts, and games. The Magdalene Project is funded through donations and support of the church.

LOOSE CHANGE SUNDAY Our Penny War is in full swing, and will continue until Palm Sunday. We are working toward the purchase of ducks for rice farmers in the Philippines, and have set a goal of providing 15 ducks, which cost $45 each. These ducks protect the rice from weeds and bugs, and provide natural fertilizer. Their eggs can be used to raise more ducks, or eaten or sold at the market. NEXT SUNDAY will be our “loose change Sunday”. We encourage you to “lose” the change out of your pockets or purses onto the pews, where our Sunday School students will search for it after the service. Your help with our project is greatly appreciated!

Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary Students Association would like to invite you to a men’s (Father/Son) breakfast. Pastor Kevin Fast and his son from Cobourg, On., will be the guest speakers.
