Big Changes for This Year's Men's NetWork WORK DAYOur hope is that all is well for you, your family, and friends during this difficult and trying time. Right now the presence and spread of COVID-19 is changing the way we do things on a grand scale. For years the Men's NetWork WORK DAY has been a nationwide service event where individuals and groups of people have benefitted by the compassionate and Christ-centered work of men's groups and other interested participants around the country.

Making Our Way to the Cross—and the Empty TombIn less than two weeks, we will solemnly reflect on our Savior's crucifixion and glory in His Easter morning resurrection. Take time, if you haven't already, to fix your heart and mind on the events that will soon transpire. This year's Lenten devotions from Lutheran Hour Ministries can help you do just that.
Three New Booklets Give Parents Solid Information for Fostering Their Child's FaithA trio of booklets from Mary Oldfield, a retired children's ministry director, give parents (and others) a wealth of fresh and practical material for raising their children in a godly fashion. Helping Your Child Have a Relationship with God, Helping Your Child Grow Through Faith Conversations, and Helping Your Child Welcome Others will prove to be important assets to any family's parenting library. Each booklet is filled with relevant Scriptures that give readers important points to consider in their journey with their children. Throughout each booklet, Oldfield brings her experience to bear as she offers nuggets of wisdom and moments of humor in sharing her message.
ServingYou hear a lot about service these days. Kids have service projects at school, in the Scouts, or through some community youth program. People volunteer for food pantries or soup kitchens over the holidays. Social media has posts about "giving back" or "paying it forward."
