Thank you, to John & Patty Akers and friends for cooking and serving the FISH Food Bank Dinner yesterday. We need volunteers for April.

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 Congregational Life Ministry. Please join us at 6:00 p.m. for a delicious meal at 6:40. Since 2017 is “Reformation 500” year we will view Lutheran travel host Rick Steve’s recent DVD on the Reformation. Later in Lent we’ll 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. The following ministries are hosting soup suppers:

Education and Youth—March 29th

Outreach—April 5th

Outreach News: The Dining Hall in Tumaini School in our companion synod, Ulanga Kilombero: Our Freising German companions have raised the money for creating a large computer room inside the Dining Hall! It will be dust free and good enough to educate the students in a much better environment than today and to keep the equipment in good order. We will keep you informed as the building of this room.
