The Our Shepherd quilting group will be meeting on March 2nd and March 16th at 1 PM. Our quilters gather together to make quilts for the poor and needy. No experience is necessary to join in this worthy cause. If you have any questions please speak to Sandy Runholt.

Please note that with the New Year, we do not have our Thursday evening worship services. These services will resume again after Easter. Until such time, we are only offering our Sunday morning worship services until the beginning of Lent. At that time, we will have Wednesday evening Lenten services.
           
Retired? Have days free? Looking for some fellowship?  Join us here at the church on the second Friday of each month for a time of fellowship and getting to know one another. It will be a time for games, devotions, prayers and other activities that help pass the time and encourage one another. The church will be open at 12:30 PM on these days. It is also a good time to bring a friend to help them meet our members and learn more about God’s grace. 

Just a reminder that the season of Lent will soon be upon us.
In devotion to our Lord's suffering and death in which he took our place upon the cross, we have special Lenten services. Every Wednesday evening during the season of Lent you have a service that focuses on the work of Christ as the only payment for our sins. This year’s Lenten services will have a Reformation based theme in remembrance of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. The services will begin on March 1 at 7 PM. Prior to the service we will have a Soup and Bread supper, and all are invited to join us. There is a sign-up sheet in the entryway for those who would like to bring items for the suppers.
