This Sunday: Economic & Community Health
We began our 6-week Lenten journey on Sunday by treasuring our physical health. We had record attendance (56 in-person and over 34 devices online!) with special thanks to the Scout Troops 88 and 888, and our Missions Team Soup Sale. Join us this Sunday to learn how we can safeguard our community and protect our economic health. You may still click this link to download a weekly guide for your personal reflection. We hope to worship with you soon!

Charge Conference You are invited to a Special Charge Conference on Tuesday, March 16th at 7:00PM to discuss a change in our organizational structure. A single-Board governance model would increase efficiency, flexibility, and collaboration, trading time spent in meetings for time spent in active ministry and service. Email Leadership Council Chair Perry Cogburn with questions or concerns. More details coming soon.
Hey Youth! We know it's been a while since the Walnut Street Youth Group met, but we have not forgotten you! This coming Saturday, all 6th-12th graders are invited to join a Youth Worship Night at Bethel Lutheran Church. Please wear a mask and invite a friend. Soon we'll be asking you about a possible VBS program this summer, so please email Pastor Emily if you would like to help.
Lenten home altars We hope you recently received a gift bag on your porch with a daily devotional and items to create a sacred space in your home. We'd love to see your photos on our Facebook page. If you did not receive a gift, please contact the church office and we will gladly bring out to you!
Missing Roaster The church is missing a new electric roasting pan. If you borrowed it and forgot to return it, or if you know where it might be, please call or email the church office. It would be much appreciated. Thank you!
Food Donations Continues to Pile Up Thank you to those that have continued to donate food and toiletry supplies for the Windsor Food Pantry! With your generosity, struggling families continue to have resources during the cold winter and uncertain times. If you have any non-perishable items to donate, you can drop off in the church lobby in the wagon during work hours. You may leave new winter clothes for the Cold Weather Shelter at the same time.
