Lenten Soup Suppers: Ash Wednesday is on February 26th, which means Lent is just around the corner. Ash Wednesday begins our tradition of sharing a meal with our fellow worshipers before each Lenten service. Please volunteer to bring a soup, bread or dessert each week by signing your name on the sign up sheet in the Narthex.  We also ask that someone volunteer to be the host or hostess for each meal. This means making surethere are vessels and utensils available as well as ensuring beverages are provided and that the kitchenette is cleaned up after each service or meal.

Book Club: Book club will be meeting on March 9th at 1:30 pm at the home of Barb Author.  We will be reading A book of our own choice
Coffee Talk Signups: There are still dates available to host Coffee Talk! Three is a sign up sheet in the Narthex. We look forward to getting together for fellowship, goodies, and good hot Lutheran Coffee.

Flowers & Bulletins:  You can sign up for flowers ($10 a vase) and bulletins ($20 a month) on the chart in the Narthex.

Our Parish Nurses will continue to make hospital visits.  However, we need to know of any hospitalizations.  Because of the confidentiality rules the hospital does not let the church know of your admission unless you ask them to notify us.  You can also personally call the church office or Carol Warring.

Second Mile Giving: Second Mile Giving donations colleced in February will go to the Manteno Veteran's Home. Please find it in your hearts this month to donate to this worthy cause with your Second Mile Giving Envelope.

Rummage and Bake Sale: A rummage sale and bake sale will be held May 1st and 2nd. Please check your closet, garage, basement, attic, and cupboards for items you no longer want or need.   You may bring items immediately and put them in the library.  Last year many hours were spend cleaning dirty donations, washing glassware, and freshening wrinkled clothing stuffed in bags.. PLEASE make sure the items you bring are clean, in good repair, and free of pet hair.  We are not accepting any old electronics or computer components. If you bring linens such as sheets or curtains please indicate the size on them.  Call Gloria Granger if you have any questions, to volunteer your time and talents, or if you need assistance bringing any items to the church.  For help getting into the building outside of office hours call the church office 815-932-1848 to arrange a time to drop off your items. Thank you for your time and generosity as we prepare for this year's sale!

Rummage Sale Word Day: All women in the congregation are invited to help prepare for the rummage sale at 9 am on February 25th before the Women's Group meeting.  Feel free to contact Gloria Granger with any questions.

Calling all Women: the women's group will meet Tuesday February 25th at 1pm. Please join us for fellowship and a dessert treat. We would love to have your input and hear your ideas for new and ongoing projects. Please call Carrie Petry if you have any questions. Carrie will lead the devotion and Judy Beach is the hostess.

WITT Group: The WITT group will attend "Bring Meets Pasta Night" on Friday February 28th from 5-7 pm at the Bourbonnais Recreation Station.  The cost is $12.  Register at the Perry Farm office.  For further information call Phyllis Reeder or Carol Warring.

Lutheran World Relief: It is a new yeawr and we will once again start collecting items for Lutheran World Relief. We hope to collect enough ites to complete 75 personal care kits and 75 school kits. There will be a focus on a particular item each month and the full list will be included in the June newsletter. In February we are seeing donations of bath towels for the personal care kits. The light or medium weight bath towels should be 20"x40" to 27"x52" and dark colors are recommended.
