Our Congregation’s Annual Meetings Is Set for… Sunday, April 8 at 1:30 pm. Please have your reports for the Annual Report handed into Laurie by February 25.
An Alien Intrusion… is coming to Simcoe, Saturday, April 7 at 11:00am. Be prepared, very prepared (we are not afraid!).
Creation Ministries International is hosting the Movie “Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception” at the Strand Theatre in Simcoe, on April 7 at 11:00. Tickets must be bought in advance by going to alienintrusion.com/tickets.
After the movie anyone who wants to talk about the movie is invited back to St. Peter’s. This is a great opportunity to invite a person who has questions about space aliens or demons to a documentary which seeks to answer the question of what is behind the alleged sightings of creatures from another dimension.
“Caring, Not Killing: Fostering a Culture of Caring”… Alex Schadenberg will be the keynote speaker on Thursday, April 12 at 7:00pm at St. Peter’s. Alex is Executive Director of Euthanasia Prevention Coalition (EPC). He writes daily about many issues related to euthanasia and assisted suicide on his blog. EPC is made up of many well informed individuals and groups working together to foster a culture that cares for the most vulnerable in society. Invite a friend to come and hear Alex on April 12.
Providing Better Spiritual Care of Our Members… The Elders and Pastor Dan want to provide better care of our members and to that end need to recruit a few dozen people to help them.
- Data Collectors – we need 3or 5 people who can track down the addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of those members for whom we don’t have that info.
- People Who Will Prayer for Our Members (a.k.a “Prayers”) – we need about 20 people who will be “Prayers.” Prayers will be asked to pray for about 2 or 3 members by name each day. A small book of sample prayers will be handout to the Prayers to help them with this ministry.
Everyone who volunteers for one of these position will receive training by Pastor Dan. Please see the sign-up sheet in the front foyer. Ideally, we would love to hold the training session shortly after Easter, so we are ready to “go out” come Pentecost.
Lutheran Piety Simply Consists Of… godly habits like listening to God’s Word, the daily prayers, reception of the Lord’s Supper, Confession and Absolution, sacrificial giving, confessing Christ, good works and remembering death and judgment day. Rev. Will Weedon, author of the new book Thank, Praise, Serve and Obey: Recover the Joys of Piety, has just finished recording a series of interviews with Issues Etc on the topic of Lutheran Piety. Listen to the entire series at http://issuesetc.org/piety/
