NEWS AND NOTES

 

 

MARTIN LUTHER COLLEGE CHOIR CONCERT - Join us on Saturday, April 1 at 4 pm as the Martin Luther College Choir, under the direction of Dr. Kermit Moldenhauer, presents a choral concert titled, “My Hope is Built on Nothing Less”. The program will include "My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less" by Jeremy Bakken, "Praise Ye the Name of the Lord" by Rachmaninoff, "How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place" by Brahms, "Magnificat" and "Nunc Dimittis" by Philip Stopford, and many others. A free will offering will be gathered to help with choir expenses. Martin Luther College is part of the worker-training program of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. The college prepares teachers and staff ministers who are ready to accept positions in our congregations and it prepares men to enter Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to complete their training to serve as pastors. Come and meet some of our future workers and enjoy their proclamation of the Gospel in song.
 

CALL MEETING – On Sunday, April 2 after the 10:15am service we will be having a Call Meeting to extend a call to a graduating student from MLC to be St. Paul’s Early Education Director. 

WORSHIP ENCOURAGEMENT – The Board of Elders is seeking friendly members for a Worship Encouragement Committee.  It would consist of 8-20 members who would meet regularly and focus only on encouraging members who are not coming to worship.  A general goal would be to contact members who were not at worship for the month by email, text, phone call, letter, or a home visit.  The goal is to be encouragers for one another.  “Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another…”  (Hebrews 10:25) Please sign up on the list at the communication center or talk with pastor.

NEEDED: People to knit or crochet caps for children in (CAMM) Central African Medical Mission, in Zambia.  Caps are needed for children ages 1 - 5 years old. African children's heads are larger, so infant sizes are not needed. The caps will be mailed in May, which is the start of their winter.  Please contact Marilyn Nell at 487-2797 if you can help or need yarn. Thank you.
