Dear Members and Friends of Zion,

Jesus calls a woman a dog! The crazy part is she doesn’t argue! Rather, she clings to Jesus in faith, knowing that even crumbs from His table would be enough to save her and her daughter who is demon-possessed. I want to learn to believe and pray like her! Hear how the Lord gives us such a faith that trusts in Him even as He once again smacks down the devil. We’re celebrating the Second Sunday in Lent this weekend.

Please join us for our YOUTH GROUP FUNDRAISER AT CULVER’S this MONDAY between 4 and 9 pm. 15% of all the sales will go toward our Youth Group which will use the funds toward our Wisconsin Higher Things trip this summer.

Would you take some EASTER EGGS to stuff for our Easter Egg Hunt? We have bags of 100 (under the tables and 50 (under the coat rack). Just buy some wrapped candies to fill the eggs with and bring them back by March 31. The Easter Egg Hunt is Saturday, April 13 at 10am and we have 4000+ eggs to fill! Thank you!

Also, if you’re wondering about those yearly CHOCOLATE BUNNIES and CANDY ALMONDS from World’s Finest, you can order this this weekend only! You can order in the narthex or let the Office know.

Remember that every WEDNESDAY in Lent we have LENTEN FAMILY DINNERS at 6pm and EVENING PRAYER WITH COMMUNION at 7pm. Take time out during Lent to hear and meditate upon all that Jesus has done for us.

Coming up next SUNDAY, MARCH 24: TWO VOTERS MEETINGS to hear proposed Bylaw Changes (first meeting) and to vote on those changes (second meeting). The meetings will take place immediately following worship (there will be NO Learning the Faith that Sunday). These are important changes that will help streamline the way we do things around Zion. They better reflect how we actually work together as a congregation. Please make sure to attend!

What would you do if Jesus called you a dog? What if I called you a dog? I hope that you’d hear that as it is meant, to draw from you a great confession of faith that hangs on to Jesus!

See you in the Divine Service this weekend!

In Christ, Pastor Buetow
