STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT:
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
“You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” God owns everything, including our very selves. We were made to serve Him and glorify Him and will never truly be happy or find our fulfillment until we learn that lesson. Jesus has redeemed us and brought us back into the Kingdom of the Father – and that has set us free to serve Him in joy, generosity, liberty, and faith.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON THIS WEEK
In Sunday School, the children will learn the story of Peter and Cornelius (Acts 10) and how the Good News comes to us as it did to them. Talk about how in church we receive the Good News that, although we are judged unrighteous and deserving of death, God mercifully declares us holy, righteous, and innocent because of Christ. “What does this mean for our daily lives?” is a good question to discuss as a family.

PICKUP
Please arrange to pick up your poinsettias and Church Offering envelopes as soon as possible.

SPECIAL VOTERS’ ASSEMBLY MEETING
Please mark Sunday, January 21, 2018, at 11:30 a.m. for a special voter’s meeting for Nominating/Appointing a Pastoral Delegate, Lay Delegates and an Alternate Lay Delegate to the Circuit Convocation for the upcoming Minnesota South District Convention.

 

NOMINATIONS FOR CIRCUIT CONVOCATION AND MINNESOTA SOUTH DISTRICT CONVENTION

Concordia Lutheran Church is seeking nominations for a lay delegate to the Circuit Convocation on Sunday, February 11, 2018. Also, we are seeking nominations for a lay delegate and an alternate lay delegate to the district convention on Thursday, June 21, to Saturday, June 23, 2018, at Concordia University in St. Paul.  The delegates to the Circuit Convocation and district conference can be the same.

All nominations can be placed in the ballot box in the narthex or you can bring your nominations to the voters’ meeting.

At the Special Voters’ Assembly meeting on Sunday, January 21, 2018, we will need to nominate and appoint Pastor Keller as our pastoral delegate and appoint our lay delegates. This process must be completed by February 1, 2018, and submitted to the Minnesota South District.

Hope to see you all there!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
We are asking that you prayerfully consider volunteering your time as an Offering Counter. We are currently looking for two teams of two people each that can help with counting the offerings and bringing them to the bank. Call the office or see Tami Gooch. Thank you!

FELLOWSHIP DINNER
The Community Activities Board will be hosting another Fellowship Dinner Tuesday, January 23th, 6:00 pm at Angelo’s Italian Restaurant. There is a sign-up sheet posted in the Narthex. This is a great way to add some fellowship to your long dreary winter.
