Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
True or false: St. Patrick was Irish. The answer is: False. He was British. St. Patrick was taken captive around the age of 16 by pirates who brought him to Ireland. He would later escape Ireland only to return again and make it his life’s work to convert the wild Celts to Christianity. Patrick saw that their deepest need was Jesus!
Speaking of deepest needs. Check out Pastor Ben’s message from last week. And let Christ, like only Christ can, meet your deepest need!
I want to invite you to worship this Sunday as our series Like Us In Every Way. For a sneak peak into what we will be studying and learning about read John 9.
Koine – A big shout out to Koine for leading us in worship this past Wednesday evening! What an amazing time of multi-media worship as they touched our hearts and guided our footsteps step by step from the Mount of Transfiguration to the Mount of Calvary. Click here to learn more about Koine and their ministry. Thanks to all who brought cookies and other baked goodies and served in any way. Great job! Thank you so much!
Pastor Ben’s Call – Pastor Ben is very appreciative of all the feedback, encouragements, and prayers that you have shared with him. He plans to have a decision to announce by next weekend (March 26). Keep the Kuerth family, our congregation, and St. John’s, Two Rivers, in your prayers.
Easter for Kids is a one day event where kids will learn about Jesus’ resurrection in exciting and powerful ways. Kids will experience the gospel message through skits, interactive learning stations, crafts, games and snacks. It’s an experience they won’t soon forget! Join us on Saturday April 8th from 11am-3pm at Victory of the Lamb. This program is open to anyone ages 3-11 and is free of charge. Lunch is also provided. Kids are invited to join us on Palm Sunday, April 9th at 9am when the kids will sing their song in church. Click here for more information, to register, or to sign up to help.
Victory Kids – Our awesome Sunday morning kids’ program continues to grow! Please consider volunteering. A once a month commitment is all that is needed. Training is provided. There are many roles to fill besides being a teacher. Some with little are no prep required. What is required? Most of all a heart hat loves God and a willingness to show that love to others. Contact Liz to volunteer!
Host Team – Have you noticed how quickly the lobby fills with people on Sunday morning?! What a tremendous blessing! This also means that is more important than ever that our guests feel welcome and are able to find their way around. It can be intimidating to attend church for the first time. This is where the Host Team helps be creating great first impressions. Please consider helping out once a month. Contact Christie to volunteer.
