Jesus came to reconnect us to God, but why are we here? We are here to connect to God, his Word, his world, and his people, but we are also here to connect to God’s work. That means involving every member in the body of Christ mission and ministry of our congregation and our church body—the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). That means involving every member of our congregation in service to others through the unique life callings that our God gives to us at home, church, and society. That means utilizing the gifts God has given each of us. That means using all our gifts to give thanks to our God who loves us so much that he sent his Son to be our Savior and who empowers us to live thankfully.
Quite a few of you know that I was to have a heart catheterization on Monday. That was due to the discovery of an anomaly on a recent stress test a couple weeks ago. My cardiologist fully expected that I would need a stent or even a bypass. Needless to say, it's been a nerve-wracking last couple weeks. I wrestled much with the fear of the unknown for myself, my family, and my flock, but the Lord was with us as, just he promised. Should I be surprised?
Divine Call Update - On Sunday, King of Kings called Harmon Krause to serve as our next Principal and Grades 6-8 teacher. Harmon served as principal and upper grades teacher at New Hope Lutheran Academy in West Melbourne from 2015-19. Harmon and his wife, Jessica, have a 2-year-old daughter. Please keep the Krause family in your prayers as they consider where best to serve our Lord in His Kingdom.
On Sunday, we were also informed that Phil and Staci Warnecke have accepted the Calls to serve at Risen Savior Lutheran School in Milwaukee, WI. They will depart for Wisconsin later this summer. In the meantime, we begin preparations to call teachers for grades K-5. Please keep Phil and Staci in your prayers as they begin preparing for the transition to serve their Lord in Milwaukee next school year, and keep King of Kings in your prayers as we prepare for a time of further transition of our own.
Martin Luther College Choir Concert - On Tuesday, March 3 @ 7 pm, King of Kings will be hosting the Martin Luther College Choir as part of their Spring Tour. Martin Luther College is our church body’s college of ministry where future pastors, teachers, and staff ministers are trained. This concert will take the place of our midweek Lenten service that week. We will have a special catered dinner in the Family Life Center @ 5:30 pm. Sign up in the church foyer if you plan to attend!
A Personal Note of Thanks - Quite a few of you know that I was to have a heart catheterization on Monday. That was due to the discovery of an anomaly on a recent stress test. My cardiologist fully expected that I would need a stent or even a bypass. However, the Lord was particularly gracious. No blockages, no narrowing, no obstructions were found--and I was given a clean bill of health. I was able to return home Monday evening. Our Lord is good and gracious as he demonstrates time and again in his Word. We appreciated your prayers on our behalf. Lisa and I appreciated the ministering of our circuit pastor - Pr. Dave Rosenau - on Monday.

An Encouraging Word: We also have the completely reliable prophetic word. You do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the Morning Star rises in your hearts, since we know this above all else: No prophecy of Scripture comes about from someone’s own interpretation. In fact, no prophecy ever came by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were being carried along by the Holy Spirit. (2 Peter 1:19-21)
