WE WELCOME EVERYONE who has worshipped with us this morning. We hope you will be able to worship with us again soon.

OUR READER for this morning is Larry Krohn, and next Sunday and Ash Wednesday our reader will be Ed Brummels. Helping with communion this morning are Paul Koehler and Ross Stelling.

CANDLELIGHTERS for this morning are Connor von Rentzell and Tucker von Rentzell. Next Sunday they will be Owen Severson and Caden Wingert. On Ash Wednesday they will be Kaden Polt and Riley Wagner.

COVID PRECAUTIONS AT SUNDAY WORSHIP: At the present time the Board of Elders have decided to maintain health caution at worship services. This means masks are encouraged but not required, handshaking is avoided, and communion distribution moved to the conclusion of the service. These changes are temporary to minimize COVID. The Lord’s Supper, a treasure of the Lord’s presence, is normally celebrated at the altar with blessing for each table. We treasure that intimate reception of the Body and Blood at the altar. While receiving the Sacrament at the conclusion of the service, walking out, doesn’t seem as reverent, it remains the holy Sacrament of the Lord. Pray that, through God’s blessing, all segments of our lives, at home, work, school, community and church will get back to a full normal.

ADULT BIBLE CLASS will be studying Exodus chapter 32 this morning. Chapter 32 covers Israel’s apostasy of worshipping the Golden Calf when Moses delayed coming down Mt. Sinai with the 10 Commandments. Chapter 32, hands down, contains the funniest verse of the entire Bible. Why not join Bible class today, find out the funniest Bible verse, but more, learn the value of following God.

DONATIONS FOR NEW STOCKING HATS, SCARVES AND BALL CAPS are being accepted to give to cancer patients taking chemo at Brian Health as a project for the senior nursing class of which Maggie Kruse is a member. A box is set up in the west entrance for donations. Donations being accepted through February 28th.
