 ‘And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the LORD,
and not unto men!’  [Colossians 3:23]

Right in tune! ~ Obedience flows freely from a heart of love.

This week’s Word… ~ Proverbs 27:17  “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another!”

Join us this Friday evening… ~ …for a Bisque Bash sponsored
by the OWLS in the Fellowship Hall: 6:30-8:30 PM.  Like the time before, here’s the opportunity to choose some extra-special
design(s) and paint ‘em up for your home or for gift-giving!

Speaking of LENT! ~ Our series this year is titled: Three Words
of TRUTH!  Each service will focus on a poignant three-word phrase from the record of Jesus’ passion and resurrection.

Upcoming congregational meetings… ~ We plan to discuss the growing need to call a 4th teacher for our school  by gathering together at the following meetings and the possibility of extending such a Call:
SUNDAY 24 February – Open Forum @ 10:50 AM
SUNDAY 03 March – Voters’ Meeting @ 11 AM


LWMS … ~ there are registration forms on the back table in the narthex for any women of the congregation for the Grand Canyon Circuit-East Spring Rally in Tucson, AZ on April 6, 2019.

Something to look forward to… ~ Branches Band will be
here for our second mid-week Lenten Service on WEDNESDAY 13 March, blending their musical talents in with our worship!

Looking ahead… ~ The time for our evening services beginning
with Ash Wednesday on 06 MARCH has been bumped from 7 PM to 6:30 PM.  The Church Council prays this change will make it more convenient to gather for worship.  ALSO: at present there is only one scheduled soup/supper on Ash Wednesday.  Anyone with an interest in organizing or co-ordinating others is
encouraged to speak up.

We’re looking into hosting a one-evening-a-week for three weeks VBS this summer culminating with a possible get-together at LUTHERHAVEN.  Watch for details

A group of Lutheran pastors and professors known as The Wartburg Project [headed by WELS Pastor John Brug/OT editor and WELS Pastor Brian Keller/NT editor] is completing a new translation of the Bible called the Evangelical Heritage Translation (EHV).  The complete EHV will be available through our Northwestern Publishing House beginning in July 2019.  Today, it is available for you to preorder.  Discounts will apply for every certain amount ordered.  Watch for more details soon.


An encouraging word… ~ We have Monday Evening Worship at 7 PM each week to afford those who are away on the weekend, busy with work or other family engagements the opportunity to sing our Savior’s praises, hear His saving Word and celebrate the Sacrament (on the first and third Mondays).  Once again, let this be your invitation to worship with us when you can.  Remember these
words from the Psalmist: Come, let us worship and bow
down, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
[Psalm 95:6]  See YOU in Church!
