With the Lord Ron Hillman was recently called to eternity.  At his request no funeral service was held.  May the Lord comfort those who mourn.  Jesus promises, “I am the resurrection and the life.  The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.”  (John 11:25)
 
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 26th.  Lent is a six-week season for us to closely consider the depth of Jesus’ suffering and his sacrificial death to pay for the sins of the world and save us.  The six Wednesdays provide an extra mid-week opportunity for us to ponder our Savior’s love and to worship him.  On Ash Wednesday and on March 18th, we will have a service at 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.  The remaining Wednesdays will have just one service at 6:00 pm.  Suppers will be served each week at 5:00 pm.  Please see the bulletin board for ways to be involved in these meals.
 
New Member Welcome Dinner Please join us on Sunday, February 23rd for our annual New Member Welcome Dinner.  This is an excellent way to meet the newest members of our St. Paul’s family and to fellowship with those we may have known for years.  We also want to extend our warmest welcome to our new members and show them what our church is all about and how they can become involved in our ministry.  We would love to have a full house!  Sign up list is on the board near your church mailboxes.  Please sign up to bring a dish to pass or dessert and give us an idea how many will be attending when you sign up.  This is really important so we can gauge how much food and drink is needed.  If you have any questions or would like to serve the Lord and your church family by helping organize this event, please contact Brian Nagler at 582-0796.

St. Paul’s Veteran’s Group The next St. Paul's Veterans' Group gathering will be held on Friday, February 28, at 9:30 am at the Perkins in Oshkosh.  All military veterans, those currently serving, and spouses are invited to attend for breakfast, fellowship and socializing.  Please RSVP on the sign-up sheet near the mailboxes.  See David Stone for any questions.
 
 
Lent by Candlelight The women of our congregation are invited to attend an afternoon of preparing our hearts for the Lenten season, by considering women who played a very significant part in the events of Jesus’ passion.  Lent by Candlelight will be at Trinity Lutheran Church (407 Oak Street, Neenah) on Saturday, February 29th from 2:00-4:00 pm.  Please RSVP by Sunday, February 23 by contacting the Trinity church office at 920-722-6712
 
 
March meeting of Ladies Aid will be Thursday, March 5th at 1:00 pm in the church basement.  Bible Study of Esther will be continued, and we will share an antique or a picture of one.  Hostesses will be Joni Schloesser and Darlene Kairis.  Guests are encouraged to attend.
 
 
WELS Herd Night - The Wisconsin Herd is hosting a WELS night for their basketball game on Thursday, February 27 at 7 pm.  Discounted tickets are available at www.herdgroups.com/wels.  Deadline is February 20 to order.
