Holy Communion Class
On March 6 at 11:30, Pastor Brenda will lead a class about what 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.

Calling All College Students & Parents

Landscape Plants Needed!
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
