TO ALL VISITORS ATTENDING WORSHIP THIS MORNING:  We are thankful that you are worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus with us.  Part of worshiping our Lord is bringing our financial gifts in the form of offerings to support the ministry of Christ’s church.  As our guest today, please do not feel obligated to give an offering.  We are just thankful that you are here and hope you will continue to worship with us. Want to give your offerings online? Go to www.copperluth.org/give.

 HOLY COMMUNION: In preparation to receive the Lord’s Supper, please ask yourself these questions: Have I confessed and repented of my sins? Do I believe that in this Sacrament I am receiving the actual body and blood of Christ, under the bread and wine, into my mouth, for the forgiveness of my sins? Do I share the confession and wish to participate in the unity of this congregation? Will I, with the Lord’s help, amend my sinful life? If you answer, “yes” to all of these questions, please join us for this blessed gift from God for our forgiveness.

If you need a gluten free wafer, please ask the pastor when you are kneeling at the rail.

The Next New Members Class: Pastor Aaron will be leading a new members class for 5 weeks beginning on Sunday, April 15th. The class will be held from 9:45am-10:45am at church. This class is the formal process for joining the membership of Saints Peter and Paul. There is no obligation to join after going through the class if you would like to sit in simply to learn more about the teaching and practice of our congregation. Sign up at copperluth.org/newmembers or on the sign-up table in the narthex.

SEEKING: Director of Hospitality: It takes a significant amount of people to create the hospitable environment we have at our church. In order to keep all these groups and volunteers organized, communicating well, etc, we need to have consistent leadership. Pastor Aaron has created a new volunteer position called the Director of Hospitality and is seeking a willing individual to serve. Please read the volunteer job description at copperluth.org/hospitality and if interested email pastorgehrke@copperluth.org.

Nursery Open but Unstaffed: This morning our nursery is unstaffed. If you would like to use the nursery, please supervise your children. The worship service will be on a TV in the room.
