THERE ARE LENTEN DEVOTIONALS for both adults and young people in the narthex at First Lutheran and in the basement at Christ the Servant Lutheran.  This year’s devotional is entitled “in view of GOD’S MERCY”  by David Boyd.

Silver Cord hours are available for all students in High School!!  There are many opportunities at First Lutheran Church for our High School youth who wish to obtain silver cord hours.  Besides the usual lector, greeter, intercessor, acolyte, Sunday school teacher positions we also have special meals you can help prepare and serve, mow the lawn, pull weeds, paint, help the decorating committee etc.  Please let the church office know if you want to be considered for anything at church.  We can certainly find something for you!

THE COLLECTING OF STAMPS WILL CONTINUE!!! The Southeastern Iowa Synodical Women’s Organization of the Women of the ELCA is continuing its collection of canceled postage stamps as a fundraiser to help Lutheran World Relief pay for shipping quilts and kits to where they’re needed.  So our unit is resuming collection in our congregations; we’d sure appreciate your participation; what an easy way to donate to LWR!
The canceled stamps are sold to collectors by an organization in Texas.
Updated information has come to us on which stamps are valued by collectors and which common ones are not.  U.S. flag stamps and Christmas stamps have little value so you need not save those; stamps that are ordered online or have a barcode have no value to collectors.  But save everything else.
Commemorative stamps are especially VALUABLE so watch for any of those on your mail.
You do not need to save the postmark.  Be sure to leave a quarter inch of the envelope all around the stamps when you cut.
A container for the stamps is on the desk in the Fireside Room.

FEBRUARY IS PASTA MONTH for the Ministry Center.  Examples would be pasta, processed cheese, boxed macaroni & cheese, sauces, boxed pasta salads, etc. Thank you!u!

THE SNOW REMOVAL SIGN-UP SHEET is posted on the bulletin board in the Fireside Room at FLC. Please check your schedule to see when you may be able to help with this ministry!
