Holy Week & Easter
We are Christians because of the events of what we now call Holy Week. Jesus
experienced highs and lows, the betrayal and judgment, death, and the power
of God to resurrect him to new life. There is power for us is in realizing
our lives mirror those realities. The more we engage in the services of Holy
Week the more Easter will become a celebration of New Life.

"Shepherding a Child's Heart"
A 2 session Adult Forum will be held on March 8th and March 15th after the 9
a.m. worship service. John and Penny Graff (who led the Personality Plus
Adult Form in 2014) will be returning to lead the discussion on the book "
Shepherding a Child's Heart" by Tedd Tripp. The book guides parents
through defining goals and providing Scriptural methods for accomplishing
them. John and Penny will take it pass the "parenting" goals and delve
into how EKLC, as a congregation, can work together to "shepherd" our
youth's hearts and bring them up in God's guiding light. Whether you are a
parent, grandparent, Aunt or Uncle or you "know" a youth - this adult forum
is for you. Please join us for a fun and enlightening discussion. The
cost of the book is $13.95. Please contact Julie in the office and let her
know if you are attending so that we can order the books ahead of time and
give you time to read the book. Funds are available to assist in
purchasing the books for anyone if needed. Any questions - Please contact
any of the education committee members: Gloria Fruit, Barb Klemp or Ann

“Dessert and a Movie” With Gaza Filmmaker Fida Qishta
March 15, 1:00 pm
Milton United Methodist Church
241 Northside Drive, Milton, WI
Where Should the Birds Fly tells the story of Mona Al Samouni, a young girl
who survives a deadly rocket attack, and Fida Qishta, a videographer,
teacher, and human rights worker. Through the lens of Fida’s camera we see
the many sides of Gaza -- the border, the lives of farmers and fishermen
under siege, the devastation of military attack, and the effort to pick up
shattered lives. We are given an intimate look into the struggle of two
young women to maintain humanity, humor and hope, and to find some sense of
normality in a world that is anything but normal.
