LOOKING AHEAD TO LENT
The Lenten season in 2018 begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14. There will again be two opportunities to worship on each of the six Wednesdays of Lent – 9:00 a.m. & 7:00 p.m. Please plan to join us!

A REMINDER ABOUT SUNDAY SCHOOL ATTENDANCE
Sunday School is held each Sunday at St. Paul’s School from 9:10 – 9:50 a.m. It is assumed that parents who do not send their children to our Lutheran Elementary School will surely want to provide their children with this weekly opportunity to learn the ABC’s of Bible History and Doctrine. Sunday School attendance is required for those in Public School Confirmation Class. All children are invited!

AGENDA ITEMS
In addition to the various year-end reports to be presented at the Annual Voters Meeting which will be subsequently published for the entire congregation in the Annual Report, items on the agenda will include:
Annual election of church officers
Updates on ongoing research regarding new school
Discussion of whether to continue publishing financial figures weekly
in the bulletin, or in a more detailed insert to the bulletin quarterly.
