LENTEN WORSHIP and SUPPERS – began Ash Wednesday and continue throughout Lent (Feb 21 / 28 / Mar 7 / 14 / 21). Each Wednesday we have supper from 5:15 to 6:15 followed by Worship at 6:45 p.m.  Suppers are served by various groups as fundraisers.  Please join us for these times of worship, fellowship, and good food!

LENTEN SOUP LUNCHES for BIRCHWOOD APARTMENT RESIDENTS – Peace Lutheran Church will again be providing weekly Lenten soup lunches for residents of the Birchwood Apartments in Baldwin.  The total served each week is approximately 30 people (this includes the volunteers who help serve and visit).  We are looking for volunteers who would be interested in providing “homemade” soup, bread, bars and/or also come to serve and visit with the residents each Wednesday during Lent.  We serve lunch but more importantly we take time to eat and visit with them.  The time required is very brief (approx. 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.).  If you are interested in being involved in this ministry, watch for the sign-up sheet in the narthex area.  If you have any specific questions, please contact Sharon Hauschild at 715-307-2531.  Thank you.

NEW MEMBER CLASSES – If you are interested in joining Peace or just wondering what it means to be a member, join us for New Member classes STARTING TODAY and continuing Feb. 25 & Mar. 4.  They start at 9:30 a.m. in the sanctuary.  If you have any questions, please let us know (715-684-2770).

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER - All God's Creation Is Very Good!  1:30 p.m., March 2, at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Baldwin.  All are welcome! Please join us afterward for fellowship and treats which will be provided by the ladies of Gethsemane.  (Snow Date is March 9).

MARCH SCRIP ORDERS - The March deadline for ordering Scrip is Sunday, March 4. Order will be ready for pick up on the following Sunday, March 11.  Debit/credit cards may be used to pay for scrip orders.  Use the card terminal in the narthex of church (directions are located next to the unit).  To place an order, simply complete your order form (blank forms at the Scrip station in the narthex and on the website) and place it in an envelope along with your cash, check or debit/credit card slip.  Place your envelope in the wooden Scrip box located in the middle church office or in either of the drop boxes.  If you have any questions regarding the Scrip program and how to use it, please contact Sharon Hauschild 715-307-2531 (cell).  Thank you! 

BULLETINS & ANNOUNCEMENTS – We are keeping the bulletins and announcements separate so people can take only what they need/want and then feel free to keep the announcements and take them home. (2/11)

THANK YOU - On behalf of Hats and Mittens.org and myself, THANK YOU very, very much for your generous support to help raise 52,000 pair of mittens and hats. Peace rose to the occasion and we delivered a total of 601 items and $262.  Hats and Mittens.org has been around for about 20 years and they provide hats and mittens to those who cannot afford to buy them.  THANK YOU!!  Gloria  (2/11)

THANK YOU – to anyone who helped in any way with the Alliance Stamp Ministry in 2017.  Over 13,000 stamps were collected, cut, and packed. They are processed by volunteers at the ASM of Fort Myers, Fl.  These stamps are sold, and the income goes to support the preparation, publication, and distribution of Spanish Sunday School materials in nine countries. Please remember - we collect stamps all year - save 1/3 to 1/2 of the envelope so the stamps get full value, and then put your envelopes in the basket by the food pantry box. - Barb Ramberg, Stamp Ministry Chairperson (715-684-2853)  (2/11)
