 Wandering, Worn and Weary

Wandering Toward Shelter

Join us Wednesday, March 7 for Lenten midweek service as we

explore the issue of refugees around the globe.


                                        The Forty Days of Giving

Not sure what to give up for Lent? How about giving out instead? Join us this Lenten season as we give a small portion of our income each day to help others. One hundred percent of collected funds will go to Lutheran Disaster Relief to assist those struggling to find a safe haven from disasters, political strife, homelessness, and hunger. For a few dollars a day, you can do a lot of good! We will accept donations each Sunday and midweek service, or you can donate directly to Lutheran Disaster Relief.


 Lenten Midweek Schedule

Please join us on Wednesdays, February 21st-March 21st:

6:00 pm—Soup supper, Fellowship Hall

7:00 pm—Lenten Mid-week Worship, Sanctuary


 Adult Education for Lent 2018

What does your dying have to say about your living? In the season of Lent, we start out with ashes. We hear these words, “Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.” The truth is that coming to grips with death and dying allows you to more freely live. In this 5-week session, we will discuss such things as; the questions we have about death, what God’s word has to say about death, funeral planning and how this can be a gift for your family, and how we are then freed to really live. This session begins on Sunday, February 25th and will meet every Sunday through March 25th. Each conversation will begin at 5:00 PM and conclude by 6:15 PM. Please let Debbie or Pastor Ted know if you are planning to attend. Please sign up by Thursday, February 22nd. There is no cost for this 5-week session and the necessary materials will be provided.


Lenten Devotionals

During the season of Lent, February 14 -March 31, we encourage everyone to spend some time in reflection and prayer. For children there is Journey Round Jerusalem with booklet, poster and sticker sheet. For adults, we have the booklet You are the Way: Devotions for Lent 2018; “in the Gospel of John, Jesus describes himself with a series of “I am” statements: “I am the light of the world,” “I am the good shepherd,” “I AM,” and so on. This beautiful, full-color devotional explores one or more “I am” sayings of Jesus during each week in Lent.” Look for both devotionals on a table in the entryway.



Hello from Green Pastures Preschool!

Are you wondering what you can do to help the students in your life be successful at school? Reading has been proven to help little ones start off on the right track when they enter school.  It is also great for older students learning vocabulary and context.  Scholastic Reading Club is a great way to add to your library for a very reasonable price.  

When purchasing books, please consider Scholastic Book Club. Our school code is MF7LP. Use this code when ordering online to ensure quick, free delivery to school. I will let you know when they arrive and deliver them to you at church, if needed.

Code:  MF7LP

Also, if you are interested in sharing any of your special talents with the preschool, please let me know. We love when we can include the congregation and other community members in our curriculum. Let me know if you have any questions or are willing to be an expert for us this year!

Thank you!

Jessica Welchhans, Director
