LIFE THOUGHTS IN THE CHURCH. Many who take part in violence against life feel like prodigals (Luke 15:13). Our Lord never ceases to see Himself as Father even to these (Luke 15:22-24). He breaks His heart open as much for them as for their victims. He keeps reaching out in reconcilia-tion with the relief, healing, and cheer they seek. We know the way to our generous God because He has guided us on that way Himself.  (Lent IV)

LIFE QUOTES  God is the ultimate Designer. He designed the greatest good the world has ever seen to come from the most heinous evil mankind has ever produced. You are never too stained for God to love. When you are feeling weak and foolish, give thanks to God for that, because that’s exactly the kind of person that God likes to use.” Rev. Dan Larsen, pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church, Wabasso, Minnesota, and Trinity Lutheran Church, Sanborn, Minnesota –If you wish to support this group, you may do so through their website:

HISPANIC MINISTRY needs your help! Want to make a difference in your community?  We do that.  Every Monday and Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8:00 we offer both a beginning and an intermediate English as a Second Language class for free to anyone who wants to come.  We make friends for life and help to improve our friends' lives by teaching them English and loving them.  We have 13 students this semester and need your help ! Please contact Peggy Jones at 479-633-2050 if you have an hour or so to spare each week.  We can put you right to work!!

 RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE DINNER After a long day at the hospital, there’s nothing more appreciated than a home-cooked meal.  Let’s get together and prepare a comforting meal for families utilizing the Ronald McDonald house area at Mercy Hospital in Rogers.  The Outreach Ministry team has committed our church to serve dinner on Saturday, April 6th.  Please use the sign-up sheet in the Narthex to provide part of the meal.  Items are due at church by 4:00pm on that Saturday.  We won’t know how many people we will be serving until the day before – plan on 8 to 20 people.  As soon as we find out, we will call, text, or email you with the headcount – so please be sure to list a phone number or email when you sign up.  THANK YOU!!

GREETER NEEDED  We still need a greeter for the early service (7:00 am) on Easter Sunday.  Maxine Reihman has graciously said she would serve, but this is EASTER SUNDAY, she will need help.  Hope one of you will say yes.  Let the office know.

 FEED MY SHEEP  Next week is Feed My Sheep Sunday.  Please remember your less fortunate brothers and sisters.  Place your donation in the wagon in the Narthex.  It is greatly appreciated.

 PINOCHLE CARDS  March winds, April showers and pinochle cards on Friday,

April 5th in the fellowship hall starting at 5:30 pm.  Come on out all you

regulars and new comers for fellowship & refreshments.  We will set-up at 5 pm & begin play at 5:30.  Don't forget your treat, um!  um!

 LOST AND FOUND  A jar of soup labels was found in the church.  Please call the office to claim.

LENT – AN EARLY START TO SPRING CLEANING  Although Lent often starts before Spring, it is an appropriate time for spring cleaning.  The Word “Lent” comes from old German and English words for “Spring.”  So while it may be too soon to open windows or hang clothes on a line, this is an ideal time for spiritual spring cleaning.  Lent calls us to examine our beliefs, confess and dispose of old grudges and selfish habits, dust off our Bibles for a new routine of study and prayer, air out our hearts and brighten our attitudes.  “Lent Cleaning” lets the Holy Spirit freshen our faith – and it is never to early for that.
