We have scheduled our annual spring clean-up for 22 March. Please mark your calendars and come join us in sprucing up the church and getting it ready for the upcoming Easter holiday.
|Easter Egg Hunt|
All children of the congregation and guests are invited to a SPARK Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday, 20 April, between the 8:30am and 10:30am services. Children will gather in the Fellowship Hall at 9:40am for instructions and a great send off to hunt eggs. Children should bring their own baskets.
Donations from the congregation for plastic eggs (300 needed), individual wrapped candy (no chocolate or peanuts), or stickers can be deposited in the large Easter Basket in Underdahl Hall. Donations of your loose change would be welcome as we plan to fill some eggs with coins (pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters). Just drop your change in the jug near the large Easter Basket. Any extra change will be added to the Youth Support Fund.

|HIRING!!!! Nursery Attendants|
We are looking to hire 2 additional nursery attendants. The pay is $10 per hour. For more information please contact the St. Paul Office.
|Vacation Bible School (VBS)|
It is time to start planning for VBS. It has always been a popular outreach, great fun for participants and a good method of reinforcing all that our children have learned during the year at Sunday School. It is also a good opportunity for our youth to put in some community service hours and spend some time learning how to work with younger members. We have some adults who are ready to help; we have possible themes; and we have a congregation ready to support us. VBS is scheduled for June 9 - 13, 8:30am - 11:30am, ages 3-12.
|WOW - Women of The Word|
WOW will be watching a video about Dietrich Bonhoeffer, A German clergyman who actively opposed Hitler and the Nazis. His convictions cost him his life. Join us every Monday at 10am in the library in the month of February.

The Church Council meets on the 3rd Monday of the month at 7pm in the church library. Meetings are open to the congregation.
