We will learn about the "Two Natures of Christ", as He is both the "Son of God" and the "Son of Man". Jesus is God in human flesh. He is not half God and half man. He is fully Divine and fully man.

BE CAREFUL WHEN YOU CLIP – Many coupons are coming in each week and we thank those who are taking the time to clip them.

Unity – a not-for-profit organization that provides hospice, palliative and bereavement care to individuals in this area, invites you to share a piece of yourself by volunteering. There are many ways you can serve; however, we have a great need for individuals who are willing to provide companionship to patients and for others to help transport patients to medical appointments. It‘s about spending time with very spirit- filled people. We have several other ways for people to plug in as well…visit www.unityhospice.org and click on ―Join Our Team‖ or call and talk to a volunteer coordinator at 920-338-1111 or email us at volunteer@unityhospice.org.

Volunteering and training is very flexible and is based on your availability. Our patients truly appreciate a friendly face and comforting smile from a kind visitor! Please contact Rebecca Busch at (866) 631-3149 or by email at 4669office staff16@hcr-manorcare.com for info! LIFE QUOTE – ―Speak about adoption positively…as loving and sacrificial. Acknowledge that adoption is a loss and there is grief involved. Know that adoption is a tool used by God to solve family problems. Biblical models of adoption abound, Moses (Exodus 2); Eliezer (Genesis 15); Ephraim and Manasseh (Genesis 48); Samuel (1 Samuel 1); and of course Jesus adopted by Joseph. In unwanted pregnancy situations, adoption—not abortion—is a God-pleasing solution.‖ Diane E. Schroeder, president of Lutherans for Life This “Life Quote” is from Lutherans for Life - www.lutheransforlife.org LAST WEEK’S GIVING REPORT (Our current approved budget calls for $10,680.53 per week) Total gifts last week $9,562.86
