If you are interested in attending, please sign up on the glass case. This is a free dinner showcasing the work of Young Life.

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO DONATE to our FEBRUARY SPECIAL MISSION ENVELOPES, designated to support Rev. Duane Meissner, a Lutheran pastor serving as a long-term missionary in Belize, where he lives with his wife and four young children (3 adopted). Belize is a Central American country on the southern border of Mexico. Pastor Meissner is a former vicar of Pastor Bahr. When he began his missionary work in Belize, there were no Lutheran churches in the country. He has established one congregation and is now working to establish a second. There is much work left to do in Belize, since most still follow a religion loosely based in Catholicism, but including the worship of deceased ancestors and the frequent sacrifice of animals.
PEW CONVENIENCE ENVELOPES: If you are using the donation envelopes located in the pews and wish for your donation to go to a particular project, such as the monthly special mission, please be sure to mark this information clearly on the envelope.
REMINDER: Social Ministries is scheduled to meet after worship next Sunday. A light lunch will be served, and new members are always welcome!
