We encourage you to read next Sunday’s lessons ahead of time, they are:

Jonah 3:1-5, 10, Psalm 62, I Corinthians 7:29-31, Mark 1:14-20

 Greeter Training will be offered this morning from 9:45-10:15am in the chapel. Grab a cup of coffee in the narthex and come to find out how you can help provide hospitality to our members and friends and a warm welcome to our guests and visitors.

Mark your calendars for a preliminary presentation of the 2018 Mission and Ministry Budget on January 21st prior to our semi-annual meeting on January 28th. Both events will take place in the Parish Hall between services. It is vitally important that all voting members have an opportunity to ask questions and become informed prior to the vote. The annual meeting will also include updates on the Capital Campaign, Property Improvement Projects (completed and those still needing to be accomplished), and much more. Central Lutheran Foundation will also be convened on January 28th. Please plan to be here.

Ever-Young Seniors at Emmaus are ready to begin a new year and invite Central Seniors to be a part of it. Come on Friday, January 26, 11:45am to Elgaard Fellowship Hall at Emmaus and let’s have some fun!   We’ll begin with a potluck lunch and then Connie Stenger will have a large selection of games for us. You can pick your favorite or perhaps you’d like to learn a new one. What better way to spend a cold January afternoon! Bring a potluck dish to share, a friend (the more, the merrier) and be ready for some fun!! We look forward to seeing you!
