The first meeting of the Women’s Auxiliary will be Saturday, February 1st at 10:00AM.  The Women’s Auxiliary is a combined group of the former Mary-Martha Society, the Altar Guild and LWML.   The group will still do all of the great things we’ve done in the past, but we’ll be doing it all together with less meetings to attend.  Won’t you join us please?

ENCOURAGEMENT FOR THE WEEK

Life Quote -  “As the Church, we are created to stand against evil. We are created to speak truth ... and forgiveness. The truth is that abortion ends the life of a human being, and we should be unwavering in our opposition to it. But that is not the end of the story. We have been given the gift of Christ, and the power of Christ can wash our sins away.” Rev. Troy Tysdal, Church of the Lutheran Brethren 

Epiphany II – Did God really say, “Called me from the womb” (Isaiah 49:1)? Did God really say, “A light for the nations” (Isaiah 49:6) – all ages, appearances, and abilities? He is a God Who speaks, and His every Word gives human lives worth and purpose. Has He not also made our mouths like sharp swords (Isaiah 49:2), proclaiming the glad news of the Lamb whose sacrifice delivers (Psalm 40:9) from any surrender to death?

We Witness – John 1:29-42a:  John simply said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!”  What would the world stop and take notice of today?  The word, “Behold,” means to stop everything you’re doing and take notice of something.  For John, and for each of us, this Jesus would serve as the Lamb who would give His life as the perfect sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin and the gift of eternal life.  Who or what is worthy of you stopping everything in your life and pointing out that this ONE person or thing is worthy of all your praise and the one for whom you have life?  If it is anyone other than Jesus Christ, then they cannot give forgiveness and life that lasts for eternity.  That’s why John said, “Behold,” and pointed everyone to Jesus.  And that’s why we live our lives in faith every day, because true life is found only in the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.  The world around us needs to hear us proclaim, “Behold,” with our thoughts, words and deeds and needs us to point to Jesus.

Feel free to contact Pastor about assistance in witnessing to individuals.
