Annual Congregational Meeting Sunday, January 28 10:15 am Please plan to attend.

STORIES OF the call to discipleship continue as the Time after Epiphany plays out the implications of our baptismal calling to show Christ to the world. Jesus begins proclaiming the good news and calling people to repentance right after John the Baptist is arrested for preaching in a similar way. Knowing that John was later executed, we see at the very outset the cost of discipleship. Still, the two sets of fisherman brothers leave everything they have known and worked for all their lives to follow Jesus and fish for people.

PLEASE HAVE information for February’s LOL LifeLine on the Secretary’s desk (or e-mail) by NOON TOMORROW, January 22. Thanks!

AREA MINISTRY Palooza!: this afternoon, 3:00 – 6:00 pm, the congregation is invited to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 5409 72 St., KSMO, to learn about discipleship, teaching and encouraging others, and to explore Finley’s 3-fold process of emptying ourselves, serving others, and seeking God’s will. We will create a discipleship plan for ourselves & our congregation. Oh, and there will be fun, as well – it is, after all, a Palooza! Speak with Pr. Meggan if you are interested, then register at: http://www.css-elca.org/area-ministry-gatherings
