Midweek Lenten Worship
On Wednesdays at 7:00pm

Lent is a season of reflection and preparation leading us to the celebration of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, we remember Jesus Christ's withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.

Each Wednesday in Lent will include a soup supper at 6 followed by worship at 7. Sign-up on the Welcome Table to provide food for these simple meals. Plan to join us for this special time of worship, fellowship, and faith.



Two Lenten Devotionals
Available to You

Please pick up one or both. They are on the Welcome Table.

It's never too late to begin your Lenten devotions.



Book Club
Beginning Tuesday May 16th

Our next Book Club will include other Sandusky Lutheran congregations. The topic? How to challenge our teens to DO HARD THINGS. Things like sharing the gospel with someone who needs it, like guiding them in the often difficult path of faith. As adults we will pray for them first, and then learn to pray with them. It's what Jesus told us to do, go and make disciples of all nations, which includes our children, grandchildren, or someone else's teen. The book we will read is DO HARD THINGS, by Alex and Brett Harris. Be ready to grow in your own faith as you help teens in their faith walk. Together we can reach the world.

We start on Tuesday May 16th, and will meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 6pm. We will gather at the Shore House Tavern, 306 W. Water St, in downtown Sandusky.

Please let Pastor Stacy know by April 10th if you'd like to order a book. We are also looking into finding childcare.



Prayer Chain
 A New Ministry

If need for prayer arises for someone in our congregation, please call Pastor Stacy who will pass the information on to the next person on the prayer chain. Please help determine what information should be shared with those on the phone chain, and with those on the email list. If Pastor Stacy is not available because of vacation, please call Kerry Laird. If you would like to be involved in the phone or email prayer list, please let Pastor Stacy know.


Quilt Material Needed
This Month

Our quilters have completed 45 quilts so far but the quilting group is in need of some cotton material, preferably dark colors, if available.

If you have some to contribute, please mark the items for the quilting project and place them in front of the cabinets on the west wall of the kitchen. Thanks! ~Kathleen Rudiger

It doesn't happen often that inclement weather causes us to cancel Sunday worship, but it is wise for us to be prepared just in case. In the event the weather is frightful on a Sunday morning please check this website for the status of Sunday morning events. Status will be posted on the site by 8:00 am. Also, cancellations will be broadcast on 102.7 FM WCPZ and 96.1.

If there is a level 2 or 3 snow emergency for Erie County, all worship services and weekday church events will be cancelled. If you get the word about a worship cancellation, please help us pass the word by calling friends and relatives. The last thing we want is someone needlessly braving dangerous roads and then arriving to an icy parking lot and an empty sanctuary.
