The Focus of Our Worship
Jesus Glory Is Hidden Under a Blanket of Suffering and Humiliation.

Jesus replied, "The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. The man who loves his life will lose it, while the man who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.

John 12:23-25

Evangelism Thought for the Week:
We heard Jesus say, "But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." We think of the power of the cross and how it is the magnet for all those who wish to follow Christ. The cross is where all the sins of all people go. Tell people about Jesus and his cross, for there is salvation.

Thursday Morning Bible Class:
Our Bible Class on Acts continues on Thursday at 10 a.m. Come and learn how the Lord spread the good news about Jesus through the world.

Sunday Morning Bible Class:
Today we continue our study on the book of the Revelation. There is a lot of misunderstanding about this book. Come learn what the Lord tells us in the final book of Scripture.

Lenten Worship:
We continue our Wednesday Lent services this Wednesday. Our guest preacher is Pastor Ron Zindler from St. Paul's Hyde and Grace, Powers. Soup and Sandwiches will be served from 5:30 p.m. until 6:15 p.m. by the ladies. The free will offering will go to New Beginnings, a home to help unwed mothers and their children.

New Beginnings is a Christ-centered ministry for single mothers and their children operated by Christian Life Resources in Milwaukee, WI. The home has been serving residents since 1993. It is supported entirely be the generous support and prayers of those who are committed to sharing Christ and reflecting His sacrificial love.

Seminars for Christian Service:
On Saturday, March 28th there are seminars on all different topics for Christian service in the church at Fox Valley Lutheran High School in Appleton, WI. The time is from 9 a.m. Central until 3 p.m. There is a poster on the bulletin board in the hall or ask Pastor for more information, or if you plan on going. There are 12 different presentations plus the keynote presentation why Christian service is so important. Registration needs to be done by March 10th.

Audio Loop:
There is an audio loop installed with our new sound system. For all those who use hearing aids, please set them to the "T" setting for T-coil or telephone. This will help you focus on what is being said or read. If you don't have the T-coil setting, please speak to your Audiologist. All newer hearing aids have it, but some need a software upgrade.

Thanks to all those who have served for the fellowship after the 10:30 services. There are several Sundays available for serving in the next couple of months. Please sign up on the sheet in the narthex if you would like to host on a Sunday. If you would prefer to donate money for items to be purchased, you may do so.
