STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT:
Mark 9:6
“For he did not know what to say, for they were terrified.” Soon enough, the disciples’ terror turned into joy for when Jesus is with us, there is no need to fear. He loves us and cares for us and will never abandon us. That assurance is the basis of all generosity – for only those who are set free from worry can learn the joy of giving.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON THIS WEEK
The Sunday School students study the story of “Lydia” today. Just as God worked His miracle beside the river, clothing Lydia with Christ in Baptism, so God works His miracles in pulpits and fonts around the world today, destroying the work of Satan, ripping believers from the jaws of death, washing away sins in water tinged with Jesus’ blood, and clothing believers with His righteousness. Parents could ask, “How did God use water to save Lydia and us? Who does God use to reveal His Word to us today?”

ASH WEDNESDAY AND MIDWEEK LENTEN SERVICES
Wednesday, February 14th is Ash Wednesday. Worship service will start at 6:30 pm. There will be a Soup & Sandwich Supper gathering at 5:00 pm.
