Crossroads Meeting Saturday
There will be a meeting on Saturday from 8:45 to 12:30 to continue our discussion and planning.
Help plan our future with God`s blessing!For over a year we have been working with Crossroads Ministry to help us plan for the fu-ture of Resurrection. After holding many seminars and gathering much input we are ready to share and develop specific plans to guide us over the next decade. The ten year target has been shared.
Your input is sought on our ministry plans.
The April event was snowed out, yep APRIL snowed out. This is proof the god has a sense of humor!
Please mark your calendars for May 12, 6:00 p.m. at the Verona Campus. We will be delving into the biblical principle of boundaries. Do you say yes when you really don`t want to? Does someone make you feel "guilty"? Are you unable to tell someone that they are pushing their viewpoints on you? Believe it or not this is a principle that God talks about in his word in the topic of boundaries.
Please come and learn more about how you can tell people without feeling guilty, where your boundaries lie and why!
So that we can plan for attendance, please RSVP to either Kerri Brunk, Diane Sippel, or Ruth Pudlo. This invitation is for any woman, no need to be WELS affiliated.

Sunday Morning Bible Study in Monroe We
all worship something or someone every day. In doing so, we make these
objects our gods. Although many people think of idolatry as a primitive
practice of third-world tribes, its as big an issue in today`s Western
world as it has ever been. In fact one could argue that the idolatry we
practice in the United States is more shameful and dangerous than bowing
down to carved images because we don`t even realize we`re guilty of it.
In this study participants will identify many present-day idols and be
equipped by God`s Word to avoid falsely worshiping them. Please join us
on Sundays at 9:00am at our Monroe Campus.

Anyone who has an email address listed in the directory (under their family details) will be able to request access to download and sync the directory on their device. Each member will receive a password per device, which cannot be shared with other members. Any member that is set to Inactive will not be able to procure a password.

Sorry for the delay. I had a funeral last week and it`s been ironically stressful for January. Happy to give a short update.
2018 marks the third year at another RLC - Redeemer Lutheran Church - in Ann Arbor, MI. Megan and I got married in June 2016 in California and continue to enjoy life with all the activity of a university city.
Ben, Molly, and Emma
We do not have all that much new to add. I am currently starting my last semester at WLS and God-willing I will be receiving my call in May. We hope to see some of you then!

Tim Rosenow (July 2012- June 2013)
Hey all! Pastor Tim, like Vicar Tim, is still single, but the count of my niblings (nieces and nephews) has now increased to 7 with an eighth arriving in February! I`m blessed to have many of them quite close so I can visit and spend plenty of time being the favorite uncle.
David and Katie
Here`s a succinct summary for RLC. To be sure, I can provide any other interesting details or members can ask, but this is probably what you`re looking for.
Regarding our family, Katie and I are blessed with Hezekiah James Sigrist, 4 years old, a creative, social little guy who is getting ready to start kindergarten this fall, and Samuel Levi Sigrist, almost 4 months old, who loves seeing new faces. We still and will always remember our daughter Hadassah Noel Sigrist who was born August 21 2016, baptized in the hospital room, and passed away the next day due to expected health conditions.
Caleb & Kristin Free
If our family was at all musically talented, our band name would be, Kristin and her July Boys. My birthday is July 13, three year old Clay`s is July 4, and brand new Aaron`s is July 15 (Kristin`s is April 14). Funny story about Aaron`s birth...he came three weeks early, and he also came on the same day I was officiating a wedding. Fortunately, I was able to see him born, quick perform the wedding, head back to the hospital to hold Aaron, all in about 2 hours. Everyone is doing well, and I can`t thank God enough for my beautiful family.

One hundred years is a long time. Think of all that has happened. The world has been at war. New countries have formed, while others collapsed. New technologies have developed. (Can you remember what it was like before the microwave oven and the air conditioner?) The synod has changed as well. We`ve grown, reaching out in countries around the world as well as throughout the United States. We`ve also used technology to spread the gospel even further, allowing the Holy Spirit to work in the hearts of more people.
The year 2014 marks a momentous occasion for the small church publication Forward in Christ. The magazine has been sharing the gospel message for one hundred years...

We are working to improve communications at RLC. Part of this effort is introducing new validation processes, which will require us to set earlier deadlines for announcements. If you would like an announcement in the bulletin, it will need to be submitted one week before our earliest service. Example: An announcement for Sunday 3/18 (includes Thursday 3/15 and Mon-day 3/19) will need to be submitted by Wednesday, 3/7.
Likewise, any announcement to be included in the monthly newsletter will need to be sub-mitted one month in advance. Example: An announcement for the May newsletter will need to be sub-mitted by March 31.
Please submit all announcements to firstname.lastname@example.org with heading and text exactly as you would like it to appear. Please note that limited printing space does not allow for all announcements to be in printed format. However, all announcements will be included electronically in the RLC Notes email.
When you submit an announcement, an electronic copy (i.e. pdf file format of either bulletin or newsletter) will be emailed to you for validation. If you need to make a correction to your announcement, you will need to reply to the email with the correction within 3 days.
Thank you for your help in improving our communications here at RLC!

Ken Notes: If you miss a deadline or have an item just for RLCNotes I may be able to accommodate last minute requests (I send RLCNotes Thursday or Friday). BUT my email can be a mess (100`s per week), so a call to 608.334.2174 will help. Emails must contain the text rlcnotes or rlc in the subject or body because I search for this from emails sent to Ken@KenHarwood.com. I also except bribes in the form of cookies, cake, or personal visits (bring a hammer).
