Lenten Series Highlights Christ’s Compassion vs. Human Anger:  (Feb 26 – Apr 1)
Although we may become angry at something or someone who violates the Word of God, we often express that anger in unhelpful and even harmful ways. In our 2020 Lenten series, “Deliverance from Danger Human anger meets Christ’s compassion in the Passion,” we will explore the destructive nature of supposed “righteous” anger in human. In response to all this misplaced, misinformed and misguided human anger, Jesus responds with grace and mercy, compassionately dispensing God’s gifts.
                      Lenten Midweek Service Schedule:
         Ash Wednesday, Feb 26: The danger of human anger – Matt. 5:21-2
         Wednesday, Mar 4: Peter draws the sword – Luke 22:47-53
         Wednesday, Mar 11: Caiaphas proclaims judgment – Matt. 25:57-67
         Wednesday, Mar 18:
Judas takes his own life – Matt. 27:3-10
         Wednesday, Mar 25: Herod’s delight crashes to contempt – Luke 23:1-12
         Wednesday, Apr 1: Mob mentality takes over – Matt. 27:15-26
Fellowship and Quilting:  (Feb 27)
Next quilting date is Thursday, Feb 27 from 10 am to 3 pm (you do not have to stay the whole time).    This is open to all women of the church.  Bring a friend or two if you want!  Being a quilter is NOT a requirement as much conversation and fellowship is involved.  Come help cut squares or tie the quilts.  We donate quilts to local organizations and sell them to members.  If there is a silent auction we can donate a quilt for, we are happy to do so.  If you have any questions, please contact Donna at 232-2464.

ND District 1-1-1 Mission Giving:  (Going on Now)
The ND District has adopted a new voluntary model for funding the missions of the District.  Every baptized member of the Body of Christ in your congregation, from the baptized baby to the oldest member is involved. This funding model is based on the belief that “there is power and strength in many giving a little.”  Loving our neighbor includes caring for their spiritual well-being. The need exists for God’s people to come together in support of missions that are bearing kingdom fruit. In addition to each congregation’s regular giving to the District, the 1-1-1 funds stay in the District and support District missions. God’s generosity is not lacking! Where the Word of God is taught, and the Sacraments are administered according to their institution by Christ, there are ample resources to do this ministry. A special collection box and brochure with more information is located in the narthex.
Bible Study (of a slightly different kind):   (Sunday afternoons @ St. Andrew)
“THE REASON I BELIEVE: The Basics of Christian Apologetics”
Have you ever heard somebody question the miracles of the Bible, including the miracle of the resurrection?  Or have you had someone say that the Bible is just a collection of made-up stories, myths and traditions passed down over the years?  How about the objection of “How can a good God allow all the evil in our world?” or “Science proves evolution?”  Finally the question: “How can you know that God even exists?”  These are common questions and objections of skeptics!  And, unfortunately, an increasing number of these skeptics are in our own Christian families and among our friends.
We will be studying this book in a small group Bible study which will be held on 9 Sunday afternoons from Feb 9 thru April 5 from 3:30- 4:45 pm at St. Andrew Lutheran Church, West Fargo.  You don’t have to attend every Sunday ~ Come as you are able.  Invite others – everyone is welcome – even skeptics!  The cost for the book is $13.  Make checks payable to “St. Andrew Office Account”.  To register and/or questions, please call St. Andrew’s church office at (701) 282-4195 or Ken Koehler at (701) 429-3092.  Thank you!

Restore His House Capital Campaign:  (going on now)
The “Restore His House” 3 year capital campaign is underway and off to a good start, but has a long way to go.  As was reported at the June 2018 voters’ meeting, our building is in need of a number of repairs and updates that are a normal part of taking care of a property as it ages.  Our goal for these projects is $300,000 over the next three years to meet these building needs.  In addition, we will donate 10% to Grace Lutheran School during that same time frame for a total campaign goal of $330,000.  
    A mailing was sent out in October 2018 with details about the Restore His House Capital Campaign, giving you the opportunity to make your commitment to the Campaign.  If you did not make a commitment yet, it if not too late.  You can pick up a commitment card in the church office.  Or you may make donations to the campaign anytime by writing “Capital Campaign” on the memo line of your check.
   We ask that you prayerfully consider how God has blessed you and what you may be able to commit to this campaign over the next 3 years.
   You can see a complete list of projects and also watch the progress of the campaign on the display in the Narthex.
