FIRST LUTHERAN MIDWEEK LENTEN SERVICES
Beginning Wednesday, March 9, First Lutheran will host a light supper at 6:00 pm followed by worship at 7 pm. The Lenten Supper sign-up sheet is posted on the bulletin board in the Fireside Room to volunteer for preparing and serving meals. Our mid-week and “Noisy” offering this year will go to the Circle of Freedom out of Corydon. This ministry helps lead women struggling with life-controlling addictions to freedom in Jesus. Donations help build a secure foundation of sustainability for this ministry.

LUTHERAN LAKESIDE CAMP WANTS YOU!!
It’s that time of year again! There are brochures in the Fireside Room at First Lutheran that will tell you all about the different types of camps, dates, and the cost. The council has agreed to help with the cost of sending your child(ren) to camp. The parents of the child(ren) will pay the non-refundable registration fee of $100 and then First Lutheran will pay the balance. What an opportunity!! Please let the church office know if you would like help registering you child(ren) for camp!!
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.
MARCH IS KITCHEN SINK MONTH for the Ministry Center. Examples would be dish soap, comet, scouring pads, Lysol, wipes, toilet bowl cleaner, etc. They are currently in need of boxed mac and cheese, hamburger helper, pancake mix & syrup, laundry detergent, ½ gallon milk jugs, canned beans, mayonnaise, ketchup and mustard. Thank you!
