Church Notes for the week of  February 18th, 2018                    

        • Prayer of the Day:    Lord God, in Christ, You have built a bridge to reconcile us to Yourself.  Grace us also to be bridge builders, that we may live in peace.  Amen.Bible Verse of the Week:   “God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”   II Corinthians 5:21Prayer Concerns:
          • For God’s peace, pardon, as we pursue our “reconciliation process”.
          • For our ILS Girls and Boys teams in the State Basketball Tourney next weekend.
          • For Doug Stein, recovering from surgery last Wednesday.

         

        Welcome to our Worship:  Welcome to worship, where the Lord feeds us with His Word and shelters us in His love. Visitors please sign our guest register and come back again very soon. Children, please help yourself to a Bible busy bag and a Children’s Worship Bulletin. 

        The Lord’s Supper is a special celebration of the Gospel of God’s love, forgiveness, and salvation. This sacred meal is for those who repent of their sins, believe in Jesus as their Savior, and who hunger and thirst for God’s righteousness. Communion is also a holy union of God with His people and His people with each other. VISITORS who are members of LCMS congregations are welcome to commune with us. Other visitors please check with Pastor before communing with us, or consult with purple folder in the pew Bibles for more information.
