The church council has scheduled a special voters' meeting for TODAY, January 7, 2018, immediately following the service (since we will be on our new schedule-- one service at 9:00 a.m.-- it will start at approximately 10:15). The purpose of the meeting is to review our financial standing and to consider a stewardship program and potential budget measures that might need to be taken to address the situation. It is important that everyone join us for this meeting. Your input is very important as we set the direction for our congregation.
We are now on our new service schedule: only one service per Sunday at 9:00 a.m. with Sunday School/Bible Study immediately following. We know that it is an uncomfortable change for a number of people. It is our hope that the benefits of experiencing a sanctuary that is more full and seeing other members who would ordinarily be at another service will more than make up for the inconvenience.

Our Thursday morning Women's Bible Study is about to begin a new study on the book, "Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply: Receive God's Overflowing Gifts" by Deb Burma. It's about taking a break from the daily grind. Even if coffee isn’t your beverage of choice, you look forward to downtime, especially if it is spent with a friend who wants your company. Jesus is such a friend. The Lord wants our company. He invites us to meet with Him in His Word. Just imagine what He has in store for us as we meet Him with our “cup”—our self—a vessel created and chosen by God, redeemed in Christ, and ready to be filled for His purpose. Time spent in Bible study will fill you to the brim and beyond with God’s Good News. Sip, savor, and drink deeply from His Word. Receive the outpouring of His grace, His joy, and His peace!

The Lutheran Laymen’s League is hosting a new Bible Study starting in February based on the book “Man Up!” by Pastor Jeff Hemmer. Don’t worry— this is not your wife’s book club. We’ll be using some interesting activities (nothing embarrassing, I promise!) to illustrate some of the main points from the book. Men in all stages of life will appreciate this refreshing perspective—whether you're searching for footing in this crazy culture, seeking a godly relationship with your wife, or looking for guidance on raising children.
