Spring Cleaning?? Twice Is Nice in Jefferson will accept donations of clothing, household items, toys, books, dishes, etc. All these donations help to benefit Lakeside Lutheran High School. You may bring these items to the church office. Volunteers take them to the store.

Lenten Midweek Services “Three Words of Truth” is the theme of our midweek worship for the 2019 Lenten Season. Each service focuses on important three-word phrases from the record of Jesus’ passion and resurrection: “Is it I?” “Love One Another.” “Watch and Pray.” “I Am He.”  “What Is Truth?” “Take Him Away!”  Our pastors will be preaching in rotation with the pastors of St. John’s in Juneau and Good Shepherd in Beaver Dam. Worship services will be at 1:30 and 6:30pm.

LENTEN SUPPERS!  Once again this year there will be a light supper in our church basement before our 6:30 services provided by some of our church organizations. This week our Explorers group will be hosting a ham sandwich supper.  Serving time will run from 5:15-6:00 pm.

We hope that this will make it easier for our busy families to come for these special worship services as well as give many of us another opportunity to enjoy Christian fellowship with one another.
