On February 13, Messiah’s congregation voted to call former Vicar Trevor Mankin as its Assistant Pastor. The congregation also voted to make former Vicar Matthew Zickler its second choice in the event that Trevor Mankin declines the call. Call documents have been submitted to the seminary and it will likely be April or May before we know the results. As soon as we hear from the seminary, we will let you know. I want to personally thank the hard working members of Messiah’s leadership, both the Council and the Elders for their dedication during this process. I also want to thank the members of the congregation who came to every meeting and participated in the process. It is with fervent prayer that Messiah enters this new phase in its history. May God grant success to this new ministry through His blessing. Neil Strege, Messiah President

Today in Sunday School: From Matthew 6:25-34, we heard another portion of Jesus’ sermon on the Mount. The theme? Do not worry! Talk with your children about how God has provided for them physically by using Luther’s explanation to the First Article of the Apostles’ Creed. Ask your children to list the blessings God gives your family in this life. Talk about how we were enemies of God and how through Jesus God has made us His friends.
