February is the shortest month of the year and for 2020, it is a “leap” year where we have an additional day of February 29th in the calendar year. For me, February is a birthday month with birthdays of some of my closest family and friends. Every family seems to have a month like this. In February, me, my wife, my mom, my grandmother, and my closest childhood friend all have birthdays in February.
So, let’s leap into the new year with our annual meeting on February 2nd. The council welcomes all your ideas and ways in which we continue the experience that makes our church so great while continuing to improve to make it even better.
In order to do that, we need a full church council. Of the 5 coordinator positions we still need volunteer(s) for Secretary and also for Citywide Outreach. I am happy to announce the following roles and new council coordinators:
I am happy they volunteered and I look forward to working with all of them. With the remaining open council positions, two people can serve on one council role to help break up the coordination even more. The church council role is one of coordination and organizing to have others carry out the responsibilities. If you want to learn more about these areas or volunteer yourself or someone else, please see Lisa Olson or Anita Marlin.
Jess Peterson is our new office assistant going forward. The council has approved up to 10 hours a week for the office assistant role. So, please share with her your announcements, coordination needs, and updates via the church email of firstname.lastname@example.org
Please mark your calendars for the following Lenten activities:
President, Church Council
As part of our annual calendar year, the Annual Meeting of the Congregation is an important opportunity for the church council to share both their recaps of the previous year, but also to lay out plans for the upcoming year, including the proposed congregational budget.
The 2020 Annual Meeting will take place following worship service on Sunday, February 2nd at approx. 10:45 am. We'll adjourn from our service, grab a cup of coffee and return to the Sanctuary for the meeting. As in previous years, advance distribution of documents will make the meeting move quickly, culminating in approvals of the budget and the addition of new council members.
Member participation is so important at these meetings and we hope you will be able to attend.
The 40 days of Lent take Biblical inspiration from Jesus’ 40 days of wandering in the wilderness following His baptism, battling temptations. Lent is the great retreat of the church year, a time of conversion emphasized through prayer, fasting and preparation for the joyous celebration of Easter.
At Resurrection we will commemorate the solemn journey of Lent through:
Healthy Sunday Snacks during Lent: Please sign up to provide a healthy snack to follow Sunday worship during the Lenten season: Feb. 26 through April 5. Some ideas to inspire your creativity: a bag of easy-to-peel “cutie” oranges, apple slices, dried fruit, nuts, etc.
Resurrection’s Annual Tradition of “Fat Sunday” Pot Luck Continues!
On Sunday, Feb. 23rd, please plan to join your Resurrection family for Fat Sunday, a pot luck luncheon immediately following worship. A sign-up sheet is posted on the kiosk in the narthex – main dish, salad, side dish or dessert. Consider this your last chance to “stuff your face” with abandon, prior to the Lenten season kicking off with Ash Wednesday on February 26, 2020.
Any questions, call or text Brenda Skelton (414) 380-4828 or Debbie Kainz (414) 828-6238.
One of the ways we are reaching out locally is to provide support to LSS in Hales Corners.
We have been working with their administration to come up with ways we can help the teachers and students – anything from assisting in the classroom, decorating bulletin boards, making copies, preparing materials for class, etc. We have agreed to provide support on a monthly basis, and agreed on the third Thursday of each month from 1 p.m.-3 p.m.
If anyone is interested in helping, please let me know so we have a general idea of how many folks will be there. You should meet in the school office a little before 1 p.m.
The address is 5425 S. 111th Street in Hales Corners.
Future Thursday dates are:
Any questions, talk with Sue Koloske 414-699-3033.
