Next week's Bible passages: (Sunday Service)
Genesis 3:1-21, Psalm 32:1-7, Romans 5:12-19, Matthew 4:1-11
(Celebrating - The 1st Sunday in Lent, series "A")
Theme for this Day– God revealed His majesty to Moses in flame, shrouded in a mysterious cloud, ultimately preparing Moses to receive the Law of God. Peter, James, and John also bear witness to Jesus' majesty on the Mount of Transfiguration; but of paramount importance is not just the glorious appearance of Jesus but the revelation of something more sure-His prophetic Word. This is the very Word that demands our listening, inspires our believing, and confirms our confessions.
Easter Schedule 2020- On the Web and a paper copy is in the back.
Bible Study, new course continues today - We are in the beginning of a study of the Liturgy (the worship of the Church and its people); please join us downstairs.
Church Voter's Meeting - March 1 after the service. If the meeting is quick, we will have Bible Study following.
Portals of Prayer- The latest edition is in the back. Please take a copy, share a copy or two…we have plenty. Would be nice to run out of them!
Join us for Midweek Lent if able - it is at noon. Now if you still want to attend a service in the evening (and if you all cry out for one, Faith will host - just let Pastor know); but St. John's Wheaton has Taize Service at 7 pm. I may stop in a few times…an interesting setting. They are always welcoming.
Service setting change for Lent - Not sure yet, but "may" use Divine Service 5 with some alterations…stay tuned. Remember, we tone it down (and even though the Sunday's are not counted in Lent), we still omit the "Gloria's" and the "Alleluia's".
>> Everything else you need to know at Faith
** Faith is Mission Minded **
Invitation - Word of mouth is still a great way spread the Good News. And please think about inviting a friend or family member to the Ash Wednesday service and potluck beforehand.
The Web Site - It is continually being updated, and has the Easter 2020 schedule published. Perhaps this is a good time to invite a friend.
Mission Table in the back - Take a publication, read it, share it…
Publications Table in Basement - There is a whole bunch of material you may take and share if you like. Take a look.
** Faith information (all else) **
Address Book for 2020 - Please take a copy…if we need to make changes, we shall do so.
Ash Wednesday Potluck- sign up in the back. If you like, tell us what dish you will bring, but at best, let us know if it is a starter, main course, or dessert.
Ushers - we always need greeters, and if you are interested, speak up.
Church Choir? - Interested for the Easter Season?? We can try some simple things; perhaps just lead the congregation in a harder hymn? A choir of 1 is a solo, a choir of 2 is a duet, on and on.
Budget Numbers, Church Statistics - grab an orange sheet in the back.
Guest Musicians - Once again, interested or if you know someone, have them stop by and chat with Miss Stolpe.
Open Positions for Council - President, Vice-president, Dir. of Stewardship, Dir. of Parish Fellowship, and Dir. of Evangelism…any interest, tell Pastor. We can use the help…and leadership.
