FROM THE PASTOR
Gentle reader,

What image do you think of when you think of Jesus? Perhaps it's our Crucified Savior on the cross in the midst of our pain and turmoil, perhaps it's the good shepherd watching over his sheep and holding one of the lambs, or maybe it's the king triumphant after his resurrection raining over us all. But have you ever thought of Jesus as a mother hen? He did. And even up to this day, he longs to gather us under his wings. This Sunday, come and gather with us, Saint Patrick, and all God's children under the fluffy wings of Christ! It's warmth and care for you and me! It may just change your life!

Looking forward to seeing you at worship!

PACKING OF BLESSING BAGS

Help pack the Blessing Bags with the SPLASH kids. Everyone is invited to bring items by the 17th and help pack the bags after church on March 17th.   Ideas for Blessing Bags
This year's Lenten offerings will be used to 
help  "Raise the Roof" at the Mtera School
Mtera School is in the process of building a multipurpose hall to be used for studying, worshiping, gathering for school assemblies, graduations and exams. Students have been collecting rocks for cement and the floor. The walls are up and the next phase would be to add a roof. Since it rains in Mtera nearly every day between January and April, they would like to complete this phase in June. SPLC currently has four students attending there from Mtera and Migoli  parishes and since it was through Mtera school that our congregation first became involved with Bega Kwa Bega and Tanzanian missions, SPLC has a special connection to the school.

We can help "Raise the Roof". The BKB Education Committee is asking congregations to help 
to raise $16,500 for the iron sheets to complete the roof. The iron sheets for the building cost $15 each which includes rivets and labor.   Click here  to learn more about  the Mtera "Raise the Roof" program.
We are looking for volunteers to help with this great community outreach opportunity and for blood donors.

Sign-up for blood donors will be coming soon. If you would like to volunteer on April 6, please contact  Zella Oswald at 612-889-0963 or  zelbill@visi.com
