The annual meeting of First Lutheran Church TODAY, after worship. The youth will be serving their baked potato bar so you won’t go hungry. We need all voting members to stay and help us pass a budget and elect some new council members. (P.S. If you are an adult or a confirmed youth, you are a voting member.)

Pat Erickson is having a 90th birthday party at Aegis Senior Inn of Edmonds, Feb 24th at 2pm. She would love it if any members of her family and friends at Ellensburg, First Lutheran Church could come or send cards. You may contact her daughter Shari at (360) 494-4020 or email her at sharfish47@gmail .com for more details. Thank you.

Souper Bowl Sunday : On Sunday, February 3rd — “Super Bowl Sunday,” First Lutheran has an opportunity to join thousands of other congregations in gathering and donating funds to fight hunger. Youth will stand outside the sanctuary doors collecting donations for the “Souper Bowl of Caring.” Please bring a few extra dollars or healthy food to donate. All offerings will be given to FISH Food Bank. As we watch the Superbowl, let us not forget those who cannot afford a bowl of soup.

Winter Youth Retreat: During Presidents’ Day Weekend, FLC Youth will travel to Lazy-F Camp for a couple nights away in the snow. It will be a time for play and worship, including running in the woods, tubing, skating, and avoiding snowballs. We will also sing and study as we set ourselves apart devoted to God and his people. There will be a $30/per person cost, due Sunday, February 3. (Scholarships are available.) Begins 4:00 Friday, February 15 until 9:45 Sunday morning, February 17.
