A big thank you to Skip Walker.  He put together a video of our WELS Night at the Lake last July.  The video is 21 minutes long.  It is posted on our Facebook page.  We will also be showing it on the big screen after our Manchester service today if anyone would like to stay and watch.  Thanks, and thank you for your support that made this day possible!

Our Lenten Services continue this Wednesday with a 7:00 p.m. service in Marquette.  This week we see Misconceptions when we witness God on Trial.  We hope you will be able to worship with us! 

The Manchester congregation will have a fellowship after every Lent service.  The freewill offering from each fellowship will go to the group that is serving the refreshments.  The choir is grateful for an offering of $100 last week.  The Marquette church will have a fellowship after their service on March 20th.

Our congregations will be holding a Pre-Call Meeting next Sunday, at 3:00 p.m., in Manchester.  The purpose of the meeting is informative and to gather information and opinions from our congregations before issuing a call for a new pastor in April.  The meeting will be led by our circuit pastor, Mike Sheppard.  Anyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.  No vote will be taken.  Questions or comments can be directed to Jason Drews by calling, texting, or emailing: (920) 763-2005 or jason.drews@hotmail.com.  Thanks!

Hey, Youth Group, we are planning a trip to Pizza Ranch next Sunday, February 25th.  We’ll be leaving church at 5:30 p.m.  We hope you can join us.  Please let Cody know if you’re interested.  Thanks!

We have a limited number of printed Manchester picture directories available in the entry.  These are especially for folks who don’t have a computer.  We are also showing the family pictures on the screen before church.  Just a reminder, if you’re not in the directory, this would be a great time to enter your info.

We have a fresh supply of puzzles in the Manchester church office.  Why not take a look as you’re leaving church today?

Ladies Aid members:  we will be collecting LWMS mission money at our meetings this week and in March.  Just a reminder that anyone is welcome to contribute to the missions of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society.  There is a little LWMS bag in the back of the Manchester church.

The Manchester Church Council will once again be serving Easter breakfast immediately following the 7:00 a.m. service.  There is a sign-up sheet in the entry for those who are planning to attend and for those who would like to bring food to share.  Set-Up for the breakfast for the Church Council and the Youth Group will be on Saturday, March 30th.  Thanks. 

St. Paul’s in Brownsville will be hosting the Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary Chorus at its worship service next Sunday at 10:00 a.m.  All are invited, and there will be a meal after the service.

Make a Joyful Noise is the theme of a one-day women’s retreat hosted by St. Lucas in Kewaskum.  The retreat is scheduled for March 9th.  It features the Branches Band and Jeremy Bakken, who is the Director of Music at Northwestern Publishing House.  The cost is $30.  Pam Plagenz has more information.  You can also register online at stlucasretreat.eventbrite.com.

Information/invitation postcards from St. John’s Lutheran School in Fox Lake are available in the entry.  The school is pleased to announce that starting with the 2024-2025 school year, they’re throwing open the door to all WELS families by offering the same tuition rate offered to St. John’s members - $800/year.  The school also offers 5-day 4K, 2-day and 3-day 3K, and before and after school care.  If interested call 928-3296 or email info@stjohnsfoxlake.org.

Watching the Church Services

You may have noticed that when you click on the service that you want to watch (on the "Sermons and Videos" page), the service will play on YouTube.  Hopefully the service will play better for you this way.  It also enables us to keep more videos on our website longer.  You can also still find our services on Facebook.

How to watch the sermon video?

Hey everyone,
I have had many questions about how to watch the sermon videos and questions on why does the video pause several times while watching. The reason is your computer is playing the video faster than your computer can load it. So, to watch the entire video without a pause allow your computer to load the video and how to do that is just keep the video on pause. The line under neath the video with  a white dot will become darkened. When the entire line has become dark that means the video is loaded. Depending on how fast your internet connection is will determine how long the video will take to load. If you have any other questions please contact Pastor or Cody McLean and we will be glad to help you.


Hope everyone has a great day!
