The Day Care is selling Seroogy candy bars in order to raise money to help offset the cost of a portable sink that was needed to create a new infant room.  Seroogy candy is handmade right here in DePere, WI, and they have been making their chocolate for over 100 years.  The cost of a candy bar is $1.50 and the day care will make a 50% profit.  Look for someone selling them before/after services or on the counter in the church office.  If chocolate isn’t your thing, donations are appreciated too!  Thanks for your support.

STOVE UPDATE
New stoves are coming for the church kitchen.  Dorcas Society has graciously donated a large portion towards the cost.  If you would also care to contribute, please mark a special envelope for the “Stove Fund”.  Thank you for your help.        The Bd of Trustees       


PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

Everyone Can Be a Prayer Shawl Minister
Do you know someone who is going through a life crisis?  It may be illness, or a divorce, or loss of a family member.  You are encouraged to utilize our faithfully made prayer shawls as a quiet witness of your prayer and care for this person known to you.  Please check the prayer shawl display in the entry hall for more information.  Everyone can be a prayer shawl minister!
We hope to bring new life to this ministry and will most certainly welcome donations of newly made prayer shawls.  For more information on making and/or donating prayer shawls, please contact Marcia through the church office at 414-481-0520.

We know everyone probably has a Bible in their home...but do you have a
Concordia Study Bible?  It is a reference Bible that combines the popular New International Version with extensive same-page study notes that emphasize distinctive Lutheran teachings.  This bible normally costs $45-$50.  We have eight bibles on sale for only $25.  These Bibles are on the counter in the church office.

ELECTRONIC GIVING
During the Easter season, it is encouraging to see both new and familiar faces at our worship services.  Throughout the year, many of you already support the congregation with your time, talent and financial contributions but greater participation is always welcome.  We encourage you to look into our electronic giving program.  It takes just a few minutes to set up a recurring giving plan. You can give weekly, bimonthly or monthly.  Fill out a Joyful Response form found on the credenza near the church office or contact Anne in the Church Office (M-F, 9a-4p, at 414-481-0520) if you would like more information. Your contributions are used for everything from special projects to basic operating expenses -both support the ministry of the Word.  As the Lord blesses you, your giving is used to bless others.
