Did you know each worship service is recorded and sent to our homebound members and posted on the web site? This is an important ministry, and we need help! Many hands make light work. If you are interested and gifted in using recording technology, please talk to Karen Hayes or Pastor Brenda.

News from the Stewardship Committee
The stewardship lesson for this month is Luke 15:11-32, the parable of the prodigal son.  This lesson is a reminder to us that we can repent our sins and God will forgive us.  We can always return to God. January is a time to reset and renew.  It is a time to look forward and set goals for the upcoming year.  In what ways can you return to God in 2017?  . . . In 2017 return to God each day something that he has given you.  Make his presence felt in all of the world. 31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’” Click here to read this article; page 8 of the January 2017 Newsletter.

December CONNECT Team Update
God’s mission for our CONNECT Team is to grow our church spiritually and emotionally by connecting God’s love and our work.  Our CONNECT Team is up and running!  The above statement is our mission statement. We have been working together to explore our strengths and find ways to build upon them.  The current CONNECT Team includes Jenna Christensen, Gloria Fruit, Cindy Georgeson, Ryan Terland, and Pastor Brenda Lovick.  We are looking to find 2-3 more people to join us on this journey toward growing our congregation and discovering positive momentum for our entire congregation to do God’s ministry together.  If you would be interested in participating in this process, please talk to one of the people on our team.

Sign Up for Pastor Brenda to Visit You! Would you like Pastor Brenda to visit you at home or at work? Signup on the clipboard in the Narthex. She will contact you to arrange a visit. Thank you!

Assist with serving Ice Cream on Thursday, January 19, at 1:30pm. Assist some of us with our bingo cards on Wednesday afternoons at 1:30pm, in the Main Dining Room.

The Upper Church Anniversary: 2017
One of the aspects of the Upper Church that is most noted by members of our congregation and visitors alike is the extraordinary cross that boldly supports the church. The eye is immediately drawn upward as you enter the church. It is an unusual feature that is rarely seen and that makes the building particularly notable. Another special feature is the altar. The design of an altar in which the pastor actually enters into the space is patterned after one that is located in Norway. Our church is thought to be one of only two of this type found in the United States. As you attend services that are held at the Upper Church, please take the time to appreciate these unique features.

East Koshkonong Lutheran Church Cemetery Perpetual Care
We are blessed with dedicated cemetery board members as well as a hardworking grounds keeper. However, there is more that is needed to keep our historic cemetery in good condition. The care of our cemetery is a ministry that needs continuous financial assistance. Please consider making a special donation to help in the care of the Church Cemetery property. Donations should be labeled "EKLC Cemetery Perpetual Care". They can be put in with your Sunday Offering or mailed to the church office at East Koshkonong Lutheran Church, Attn: Cemetery, 454 East Church Rd, Cambridge, WI 53523
