 Soup providers are needed for Together Tuesdays during Lent.  Please sign up in the narthex to bring soup or bread to share.

 Interested in membership at Central Lutheran? If so, plan to attend the “Nurturing Faithful Living” classes with Pastor Laurie on Together Tuesdays during Lent (March 28 and April 4). For those who desire, new members will be received by Baptism and Affirmation of Baptism at the Easter Vigil on April 15. Be sure to fill out one of the “Visitor Information” cards in the pew rack, then hand it to an usher or place it in the offering plate.

 The CLC Book Club will meet on Monday, April 10, 2017, at 7:00 P.M. in the CLCW Room to discuss Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. A story of survival, resilience and redemption, it tracks the life of Louis Zamperini, an incorrigible delinquent who was channeled into running in high school and made the Olympics in Hitler’s 1936 Berlin. As an airman on the Pacific, the book tracks Louis from his plane crash, his 47-day float on a life raft and through years in the Japanese prison camps. He demonstrated remarkable resolve, hope and rebellion as a prisoner. A postwar miracle transforms him before he totally self-destructs. Arlene Dietz will lead the discussion. Come join us!

 Special thanks to Central’s First Place volunteers – Between March 13 and 20 Central hosted First Place families (24 people).  The families stayed overnight in our Gathering Room, and were served breakfast and dinner by Central volunteers.  I want to express my thanks to all the individuals and families from Central who fed and helped the First Place homeless: Ron & Sylvia Kaufman; Bill & Dee Dewey; Dal & Gaye Haverland; Dan Buckwalter; Carol Shepherd; Merrily Sutton and the Central Bell Choir; the Women’s Bible Study; Ben Brown; Laurie Inglish; Sue Mathisen and Honora; Michelle & Rich Bremer and Jan; John Rowell; Gary Wolfe; Wendy Waananen; Mason & Lorraine Davis; Annetta Forrer; Whitney, Sean, Sophie and Cole Wagoner; Norma Vettrus and Together Tuesday helpers; Ginger Bopp; and Pastor Laurie.  Special thanks to the Christensen and Wagoner families for loaning and donating books, coloring books, crayons, and DVD’s to the many First Place children. – Bernie Bopp, Outreach Team leader
