Today’s bulletin highlights for this First Sunday in Lent:
Our Christian sympathy to the family of Jeanne Heller who passed away Thursday. Her memorial service will be held at a later date.
The Women of the ELCA General Meeting will be held next Sunday after worship services.
A sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board for Lenten refreshments. Instead of assigning groups this year to serve refreshments after Lenten services, you can provide them for a date that is convenient for you!
The German Dinner is next Sunday following worship services!
Reading for the Prize – Sunday School students still have the opportunity to read a book from the church library or a portion of your Bible, attend Sunday school and tell your teacher and classmates about what you read! Then, choose a prize from the basket. This event will run from February 1-March 1.
Though the weather outside is frightful, the Y is so delightful! Sign up and go, sign up and go, sign up and go – to the Congregational Lick-Awa”Y” at the Southeastern Indiana YMCA in Batesville on February 28 from 5:15 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. We will swim, walk, play, eat, enjoy each other’s company, and forget about the frigid temperatures for a few hours. See the newsletter and the poster in the educational building or contact Teresa Lawrence for more information!
