Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the season of Lent. In an effort to gain a greater understanding of Christ’s work for our forgiveness we have special Lenten services on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM beginning February 10. Prior to these services, we have a soup supper for all of our friends and members. If you would like to sign up for soup the sign-up sheet is available in the entryway.

Do you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure? Have members of your family suffered from these ailments? Do you have a poor diet? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, you may want to consider being screened for your risk of stroke through the services of Life Line Screening. Life Line Screening uses ultrasound technology to view the plaque build-up in your carotid arteries, the main arteries that carry blood to the brain. Blockages in these arteries are a leading cause of stroke. We are pleased to host this Life Line Screening event 2/5/2016 at Our Shepherd Evangelical Lutheran Church . Register for a Wellness Package with Heart Rhythm for $149. All screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete. Your Health is in Your Hands, so call 1-888-653-6441 or go towww.lifelinescreening.com/community-partners for more information or to pre-register.
