Prayer of the Day
Compassionate God, you gather the whole universe into your radiant presence and continually reveal your Son as our Savior. Bring wholeness to all that is broken and speak truth to us in our confusion, that all creation will see and know your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

Social Ministry - Menomonee Falls Area Food Pantry: We are having a food drive for Falls Area Food Pantry through February. Canned pears and mandarin oranges, pork and beans, tomatoes, low salt vegetables and soups, and toothpaste are items most needed at this time. Did You Know that the Food Pantry in Menomonee Falls holds a fundraiser the 1st Saturday of every month? This is a hot dog sale ($1 with chips and drink) from 10 am--2 pm at the Piggly Wiggly grocery store on Appleton Avenue. Consider volunteering at one of these sales or give support by buying lunch there.
Adult Bible Study Opportunity in February - Dr. Jack Beck’s latest Bible Study for adults and high school youth will take place on February 1, 8, and 15 at 8:00 a.m. The topic will be Wilderness and the Word. Here’s a quick look at the themes for this study: The events of the Bible unfold across a great variety of landscapes including that which the biblical authors call “wilderness.” This session will explore the nature of the wilderness and see the roles it plays in Bible communication. As time permits, we will explore the role of wilderness in the disqualification of Moses (Numbers 20:1-12), the temptation of Jesus (Matthew 4:1-3), and the poetry of Psalm 23.
Women’s Ministry for February - The women’s gathering will be held on February 17th from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. We will continue to study Dr. Beck’s “Understanding Your Bible.” Our hope is to finish Chapter 2 and start Chapter 3. There is always plenty of coffee and snacks to enjoy. We hope to see you there.
Lenten Worship and Meals Schedule - Wednesdays in Lent worship services will be held each Wednesday from Ash Wednesday, February 18 through Wednesday, March 25. Beginning on Wednesday, February 25, a meal will be served at 6:00 p.m., and all services begin at 7:00 p.m., including the Ash Wednesday service (however, no meal will be served on Ash Wednesday). If you would like to help be a part of one of the meals, please see the sign-up sheet in the back of the church or contact Pastor Spies.
Have a blessed weekend!
