            "The Dimensions of our Discontent"

            Do you find yourself often discontented with life and with the world? Is your discontent necessarily a bad thing for people of faith? We keep searching for something to content us. We keep searching for some "it" that will make all of life fit together sensibly and peacefully.  We will explore that in our mid-week Lenten worship. We will use Marty Haugen and Susan Briehl's service, "Unfailing Light" for worship.

            Signs of Your Gracious Love

            For the next several months we will put an emphasis on stewardship; the use of all our gifts in service of God and one another through our time, our vocations, and our money. The theme is "Signs of Your Gracious Love". The theme comes from an old offertory prayer in a liturgy formerly used by Lutherans. Stewardship is responding to all that God has given us. Stewardship is a recognition that all we have is a gift from God. Stewardship reminds us that we, through our use and sharing of God's gifts ourselves become a sign of God's gracious love. 

            We will have monthly Temple Talks prior to announcements by various members and students regarding their personal motivation for sharing their gifts in our faith community. 

            Simply Giving
            For those who wish to have offerings transferred electronically to their church's account.

            It's SAFE AND SECURE
