As a faithful congregation of the Oklahoma District of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod we joyfully hold to the teachings of the Scriptures as they are confessed in the Small Catechism of Martin Luther, the Augsburg Confession and the entire Book of Concord of 1580.  
So do not fear, for I am with  you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand . Isaiah 41:10
As we look at our Sunday bulletin and see our ever lengthening list of people who are ill or in need and also as we look at the concerns for our community and country, we see an ever increasing need for prayer. Therefore, we ask each of you to increase your prayers in this time of need. 
Have you ever noticed the beautiful flower arrangements on the altar during our services? These are just another example of God’s beauty and love. Each month, these are provided by congregation members in honor or in memory of loved ones. If this is something you would be interested in, look for the flower signup sheet in the Narthex or contact any altar committee member for details. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and helping to make our services even more beautiful. 
Thank you,   The Altar Committee

The prophet Joel says, Come back to me with all your heart.   
Come back to the Lord your God because he is kind and shows mercy.  He doesn’t become angry quickly and he has great love.  Who knows?  He may leave behind a blessing.  Bring everybody together — the older leaders, the kids, the babies, the newlyweds, the pastors, and they should say, “Lord, have mercy on your people.” Joel 2:13-17 
This is a picture of Lent.  Jesus is a picture of Lent.  In the middle of our sin stands the cross on which the King of Kings died.  The soul laid bare can take comfort in the Cross.  Whether you give up something for Lent, or not, take comfort in the Cross because in that we have life, now and in the New Creation.  May God bless our Lenten season as we look at the love of God for his people! 
We’ll be moving into the Lenten season by the time you read this.  Many folks give something up for Lent as some sort of spiritual discipline or change in lifestyle; kind of like a New Year’s resolution.  That’s all well and good.  But Lent is more about a spiritual adjustment to re-order where you are going in your faith life.  It’s a time to get back on course.  It’s a time to come back to the Lord your God because he is kind and shows mercy. 
Are you thinking about giving up something for Lent?  Consider the following:  Feelings of Unworthiness — You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). Guilt — We are loved by Jesus and he has forgiven our sins.  Entitlement - The world does not owe me anything.  God does not owe me anything.  Live in grace and humility.  Negativity — I will put the best construction on everything when it comes to other people.  Destructive Speech — Encourage one another and all the more as you see the day approaching (Hebrews 10:25).  Small View of God — Don’t tell God how big your problem is, tell your problem how big God is. (GSNJ) And, of course, there’s always Facebook??! 
Blessings on your Journey!
