Lenten Dinners- Volunteers Needed:  Ash Wednesday is March 6th, which marks the beginning of our Wednesday Lenten Services and pre-service dinners.  If your group would like to cook and serve a dinner (for free-will offering) this Lenten season, please sign up on the sheet posted on the Fellowship Hall bulletin board.  Thanks!

Hosts Needed! Would you be able to host a pair of students overnight on Monday, March 4?  You’d be asked to bring them to your home that night after the concert is over, provide them with a place to sleep, feed them some sort of breakfast in the morning, and have them back to Divine Grace by 7 a.m. sharp.  There are 13 pairs of women and 12 pairs of men, so we need all the help that we can get!  If you’re willing to serve in this way, please indicate so on the sign-up sheet on the credenza in the church entryway.

Choir Concert – March 4:  The concert choir of Martin Luther College, under the direction of Prof. Adrian Smith, will be giving a sacred concert here at Divine Grace at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 4.  Let’s all be sure to get busy inviting as many people as we can to this concert; it truly is going to be an inspiring concert courtesy of some very talented voices praising the Lord!
