Congratulations to Derek and Paula Warden on the birth of their daughter, Jeanie Rose Lynn Warden! Birthday greetings are in order for: Micah Rincker (February 1); Lorraine Haake (February 3) and Debra (Michael) Holle on February 4. Happy Birthday!
The “Not Quite Super” Bowl will be played again this year on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5, game time being 12:30 in the outfield of the Trinity school baseball diamond. Anyone is welcome to play. Please contact Ben Boehne if you have any questions (618-780-7315).
Check out the ad in this week’s Nashville News for PTL Trinity Lutheran School’s Beer Wine Tasting event. It is this Saturday, February 4 from 6-9pm at the Hoyleton Community Building. This event serves the greater purpose in generating support of their school technology fund.
Next Sunday, February 5 is the Fifth Sunday after Epiphany. Zion UCC will celebrate Communion at their 10:00 am. Worship Service. The 2017 Church Council will also be installed during Worship. Scripture readings are from ISAIAH 58:1-9a and MATTHEW 5:13-20. Pastor Bill’s Sermon is titled “YOU ARE SALT AND LIGHT”. Jesus spends little time telling us what we could do, if we only put our minds to it. He alerts us instead, that we are already God’s image in the world. The time to live as a disciple is now. The place is here. Children’s Sunday School will be at 9:00 am. Yes, next Sunday is also the football Super Bowl – but we will honor that day as the Souper Bowl of Sharing by bringing boxes or bags of cereal for the Irvington UCC Food Pantry. Our Noisy Offering Will be for DuBois Center. Remember to bring your coins and cereal to church with you!
