Flowers for today are provided by Pat Loetterle in memory of her daughter Barbara.

Nursery Help Needed: High School Students, do you need community service hours? Sign up to help in the nursery, and we will sign off on your hours.

See the sign up next to the youth bulletin board in the fellowship hall and choose a Sunday. Thank you!

The Wednesday Soup and Bread Supper will be hosted this week by members of the Outreach Ministry. Please join us at 6:00 p.m. for a delicious meal. At 6:40 since 2017 is “Reformation 500” year we will do some review of Luther’s teachings on the 10 Commandments, Baptism, Lord’s Supper, Apostles’ Creed, and Lord’s Prayer in his small catechism. Then at 7:10 pm we’ll move into the sanctuary for a 20 minute Holden Evening Prayer service. Come as you are to these fun and informal evenings of good food, fellowship, Bible study and worship.

Reformation 500 Bookstore —payment is due today! Today is the last Sunday to order books from Augsburg located on the display table in the Fellowship Hall. To all who have signed up to make a purchase...if you haven’t submitted payment yet, please write a check in the amount due to First Lutheran and write “books” on the memo line. Payment is due today! The books will be ordered tomorrow, April 3. Please give your check to Carla Bergman at the table after the service or place it on the counter in the church office. All orders will be available for pickup within the next few weeks. Thank you!
