Please continue to pray for Pastor Mike Meyer and his family as they seek God’s will for their lives after receiving a call to a congregation in Okeechobee, FL. Pray that God’s will for them will be made abundantly clear to the whole family, and that they would know God’s peace while they make their decision.
Join us tomorrow (February 13) for another Forever Family meal as we gather for our annual Souper Sunday lunch. Please bring a soup and a dessert to share. We’ll provide bowls, spoons, etc., along with lots of extension cords for your roasters and slow cookers. We’ll have some serving spoons, but if you have a ladle you can bring, that would be helpful. If you’re not able to bring something to share, please still plan to join us!
As she shared in church last Sunday, Michaela Twito (Micky) has paused her Masters degree studies and headed to Costa Rica for mission work with Mission for Christ Network. To help support her financially, please visit this link to make a donation.
Concordia University’s Guatemala Health and Medical Mission Team is collecting hygiene supplies to take on their March trip. They will be traveling to the same area that The Rock’s mission team worked at in Amatitlan, Guatemala. They will be hosting a health fair in two different villages where they will teach the villagers about a variety of health topics including dental hygiene, hand washing, parasite prevention, nutrition, and spiritual health. They need: bars of soap, new hand towels, toothbrushes, toothpaste. If you are able to purchase needed items or have any of these products laying around your house that you won’t use (perhaps you bought the wrong brand of something and won’t use it OR the toothbrush your dentist gave you isn’t the type you prefer OR you are an extreme couponer and have a stockpile in your basement OR you collect hotel soap), they’ll take it!! Please put donations in the basket marked “Concordia Guatemala Hygiene Collection” in the Rock Cafe by February 20. Thank you in advance for your support.
The Guatemala Mission team will be hosting a taco & nacho bar meal before our Ash Wednesday service. Join us starting at 5:30 for dinner (free will offering will be collected for the mission team) before the service starts at 6:30.
Instead of dropping off your children for Stepping Stones and FaithInk, please join them and attend the family friendly Ash Wednesday service (with the imposition of ashes) that evening. No childcare provided.
