Friday April 12 from 6:30-9 p.m. and Saturday, April 13 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. The Art of Marriage Event is a video experience designed for church and community settings. The Art of Marriage Event consists of six video sessions typically held on a Friday night and Saturday. These videos combine dramatic stories, real-life testimonies, expert interviews, humorous vignettes and other teaching methods to lay out God’s design for marriage in a fresh, engaging way. Guests attending the event are each provided a manual with projects to help them apply the principles taught in each session, augmented by dozens of articles and additional content to help them dive deeper. Over 175,000 people have attended one of over 3000 events held since its launch in February 2011!

Philippians 2: 1-11: So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.
3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus,a]">[a]6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant,b]">[b] being born in the likeness of men.8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.
9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Getting tired of the long winter and need a men's weekend getaway? We're joining up with Harvest Church in Beaver Dam for a special men's retreat at the Green Lake Conference Center April 26-28. The $125 cost includes 2 nights of rooming, all meals, t-shirt, and most importantly--a great time with other guys. For information and sign-up, contact Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 346-2693.
Food Collection & Distribution
We are continuing to collect non-perishable food items. We have a barrel in the foyer to collect items to help those in our church and community who are "in-need" during this time of hardship and crisis across our county. This will be a church "Reach Out" to our own and to the community and is separate from the Waupun Food Pantry. Please bring any non-perishable food items you feel moved to donate. Consider donating items that can easily be combined to make complete meals (soups, stew, canned meats, microwaveable non-perishables). Toilet paper and personal items such as shampoo and soap are also welcome. This is NOT a one time collection. The barrel will be available for food donations untill the "need" is alleviated in our community. Distribution will begin as soon as enough food is collected to make bags up.
We are well into our "So All May Know" building and debt reduction campaign. We are trying to reduce our mortgage debt in Waupun so we can serve the church and our community better. We are also trying to raise funds to build a permanent worship facility for our North Fond du Lac campus. It is never too late to join us with a pledge. Contact a Welcome Center helper, staff member, or pastor for a pledge card or just put a gift into the offering with "building pledge" in the memo.
