SUNDAY BIBLE STUDY: After our fellowship time every Sunday, we have our Sunday Bible class. Currently we are studying “The Hard Sayings of Jesus”. You are invited to join us!

Wednesday Bible Study: Pastor DeGier is leading a weekly Bible study on the book of 1 Corinthians.  This book teaches us a great deal about the power and importance of the gospel, about what Christian love and unity should look like, about how to truly love a brother or sister in Christ who is endangered by their own sin, about how to use the freedom that God gives us as Christians, and so much more.  We meet on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 AM at Christ.  Please join us to be fed by God’s Word and grow in your faith. 

FELLOWSHIP TREAT SIGN-UP: A new fellowship sign-up sheet has been put out, and there are several dates to choose from to help out in this much needed service! We thank those who have volunteered their time and talents to make our fellowship time extra special each week! 

CWTAP UPDATE: The “Called Worker Tuition Assistance Program”, designed to financially assist those who are studying for the preaching or teaching ministries in the WELS, is in need of donations. Special envelopes for this are located to the right of the Board of Christian Education bulletin board.  Also, applications for financial assistance for the CWTAP are due by May 6. 

THE YOUTH GROUP CAR WASH is April 15. To allow youth an opportunity to participate, classes for youth in grades 7-12 will not be held.  Sixth graders may be excused from class. 

SCRIP SALES: Mrs. Kathy Schuch will be in the narthex every Sunday after the worship service to take subscriptions for the Scrip Program, a convenient, easy-to-use program which supports NLHS. Need the “program” explained to you? Kathy will be happy to tell you about it!

CHOIR PRACTICE: The Choir will resume practice at their regular time in April

TRINITY BOWLING: Trinity Lutheran Church in the Town of Berlin has invited us to their next Family Ministry Event.  It will take place on Sunday, April 29.  People will be meeting at Les & Jim’s Lincoln lanes at noon in the banquet hall.  Pizza will be served and after everyone is done eating, there will be a devotion designed to be understandable for young children and singing.  After the devotion is done, people will be bowling.  The cost for bowling is $8/person and includes shoe rental and 1 ½ hours of bowling.  Most likely the pizza will cost about $5/person or less.  If you plan on coming, please let Pastor DeGier know.
