If you choose to donate cash, take a red envelope next to the tree and use it for that purpose. We will shop for you.

 

LENTEN STUDY

Did you know that when we hope for the impossible, it involves more than praying for God’s transcendent power? There are two components to every miracle: divine action and human responsibility. Each of us has been given specific talents and abilities. For a real miracle to take place, God expects us to apply these talents and abilities—acting with God to perform divine work. By examining biblical examples of how to use your God-given gifts for God’s glory, author and Pastor Mike Slaughter helps you discover that you, too, were Made for a Miracle.

We will have two time options for you to choose from for the Lenten study this year. Thursday mornings at 10:30am starting Feb. 15th and Sunday evenings at 6pm starting Feb. 18th. Childcare will be available, Sunday evenings only.

 

Turkey Supper 

The Annual Turkey Supper will be held Saturday, February 17th. We will serve from 4:30 to 7:00pm. Proceeds from this year’s supper will go to the Sr. High Youth for their Youth Mission trip to Racine, WI in June. We will be selling tickets at the door.  Cost of the tickets will be Adults tickets (13 and older) $10; children (4-12 year olds) $5 and 3 and under will be free. Don’t forget to mark your calendars and plan to join us for some wonderful food and fellowship. Questions call Nancy Hetherington (661-3983), Kristi Palecek (760-2171) or Chrissie Wieseler (660-4741).

 

Directories There are a few updated 2018 directories available on the welcome table. If your information has changed, please let Lisa in the office know.

 

A Lenten Retreat, “Befriending Silence, Tending the Heart” will be offered 9:30 to noon on Feb. 17th at the Benedictine Peace Center, Sacred Heart Monastery, in Yankton. This morning of reflection, presented by the Peace Center staff, will give you the opportunity to experience silence and consider how you can make it a part of your life, as well as a Lenten discipline.  The suggested donation is $20.  Registration requested by Feb. 14th by calling 605-668-6292 or e-mail BenedictinePeaceCtr@mtmc.edu.
