Announcements for the week of February 4, 2018


ASH WEDNESDAY is this Wednesday.  The Ash Wednesday Service is a Holy Communion Service that begins at 7:00pm.  Imposition of Ashes is offered between the public confession and absolution.  “From dust we came and to dust we will return” (Genesis 3:19) in anticipation of the Absolution in Christ.

JOEL’S ELDER GROUP - WOULD YOU LIKE PASTOR TO VISIT? Please let me or Joel know.  For those not in Joel’s elder group, I am still available to meet with you, too.  My hope with a faster rotation is that visits and the care of your souls outside Sunday mornings will be a little more deliberate.  I have explained this more in the February Newsletter  Also, feel free to stop in during scheduled Office Hours as well, which are Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:00 - 6:00pm.  Thank you and God bless you.  Pastor Pautz

LWML will be serving the ASH WEDNESDAY LENTEN MEAL of various casseroles, salads, vegetables and desserts beginning at 5:30 pm on Wed. The freewill offering will given to the Domestic Violence Center of Muscatine.

DIRECT OFFERING Some of you have asked again what are the ways in which you may give your offerings.  The offering envelope given during the offering in the church service.  Some mail in envelopes.  Some stop in during the week to give an offering or ask me to put it in the offering plate during visits.  Also, you may give a single or ongoing offering through Direct Offering.

THE FEBRUARY LWML MEETING will be this Thursday, February 15th at 7:00 pm.  Judy Yates, from the Domestic Violence Center will be our guest speaker.  All ladies of the Congregation are invited to attend.  Our hostess and bible study leader is Becky Ernst and Wendi Ingram provided our February bulletin display.
