COFFEE HOUR SIGN UPS
Thank you for those who have signed up to donate Coffee Hour. However we still have the following dates open: February 19, February 26; March 5, March 19 and March 26. We all enjoy the treats and this is a wonderful ministry to our visitors but we need more participants bringing food. Frequently two people sign up for the same date, in order to share the preparation and clean up.

THE RED WAGON PANTRY
Donation needs for February are canned goods. For example: hearty soups, tuna, salmon, ham and cookies. Low salt and sugar-free food donations would also be appreciated. If you are in need of assistance, please talk to Father Hines.

DIOCESE OF THE SOUTHWESTERN STATES SYNOD: JUNE 13-15, TULSA, OK
The theme for this year’s Synod will be “The Family of Christ” taken from the Gospel according to Mark, Chapter 3, and he (Jesus) looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother (Mark 3:34, 35).”

NEED A MICROWAVE? LAST TIME OF ASKING.
An LG “Orbit” table model microwave is available. It is on display on the counter in the kitchen. If anyone is interested, please speak with Father Hines.
