 CALLS ISSUED

Kindergarten – The congregation voted to extend a call on February 10 to Mrs. Laura Ozminkowski to be our Kindergarten teacher for next year.

3rd – The congregation voted to extend a call on February 10 to Mrs. Megan Proeber to be our 3rd grade teacher for next year. Her call would also include help in the athletics department.

6th – The congregation voted on February 10 to enter the Principal Training Program. This program would give us a graduate teacher that MLC has selected to be a good candidate for a future principal in one of our schools. He would be mentored by Mr. Gartner for three years. At the end of the third year he would go back to the assignment committee for a principal call.

Please keep these teachers in your prayers as they deliberate where the Lord would like to have them serve next year.

 ASH WEDNESDAY IS MARCH 6TH  Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, our 40-day journey with Christ to his cross and to the empty tomb on Easter. As the name implies, Ash Wednesday historically has included ashes. We're planning to include the imposition of ashes in our Ash Wednesday services this year. If you have any questions, our pastors would be happy to talk with you. 

 LENTEN SUPPERS The season of Lent will soon be here.  Ash Wednesday is March 6. A light supper will be served between services.  Mission Society will be serving Sloppy Joes on Ash Wednesday, Altar Guild will be serving Chili on March 13, Church Council will be serving Pizza March 20, Praise Singers will be serving on March 27, Youth Group on April 3.  If your group would like to serve April 10, please call the office, 920-648-2918.

 LUTHER PREP Watertown will hold their spring concert on Sunday, March 10 at 2 PM.

 GREETERS A new Greeters Schedule will be put together shortly.  If you haven’t noticed, there are usually two congregation members in the lobby entrance when you come to church.  This couple serves as greeters not only to members, but to those who are visiting.  We want to make everyone feel welcome as they come to worship.  If this is something you think you might be able to volunteer for, contact Kris Schneider by March 29 at 920-988-6987 or email trykrs@hotmail.com.

 BLOOD PRESSURE SCREENING is offered between the Sunday services in the office.  We thank our medical members for providing this service.
