Lutheran Christians believe around Holy
Communion. This class is an opportunity to
discuss and learn together what Holy Communion
means for us. All people of all ages are
welcome, and especially children and parents
preparing for taking communion for the first
time. In the tradition of Martin Luther,
children may begin any time after they are
baptized at a time that is determined through
mutual conversation including the pastor, the
child, and parents or sponsors involved. We will
recognize those who have prepared for communion
on Maundy Thursday, March 24. The class will
include lunch and making bread! We will be
finished by 3:00 pm.

Please consider donating a division of a perennial flowering plant or two
from your garden to add to the landscaping of our churches next spring. We
especially need plants that tolerate full sun, high heat and drought, since
many of the church's flower beds receive full sun all day long. If you are
willing to donate a plant, please contact Hilary Terland. If you need help
digging, please contact Hilary Terland. Now is the time to mark any plants
that you would be willing to donate. This is the most cost effective way to
enhance the beauty of our churches to which we're so proud to belong. Thank
you in advance! Hilary Terland
