February 3rd Events
This Sunday, February 3rd, we will:

Celebrate the ministries of Christian Education. We
have great opportunities to grow in faith here at
BSLC for the whole family. From our weekly Sunday
morning Sunday School and Bible classes to our inhome BASIC groups, our assortment of weekday
Bible classes, and pre-confirmation and confirmation
classes we are blessed with many opportunities to
grow in God’s Word.

Hear the Stewardship Journey of Kyle Krull

Our Bible Study Lesson Today will be led by
Pastor Jim Bender of Topeka, KS, who is serving
as our Guest Leader during this emphasis.
CONSECRATION SUNDAY IS
NEXT SUNDAY
Every member is asked to make a special effort
to attend worship on Sunday, February 10th
and to make a reservation for a special
luncheon to be held at the Olathe American
Legion, 410 Dennis Avenue shortly following
the 10:45 service that day.
PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS
LENT POTLUCKS Looking for the perfect place to try
out that new recipe or share a family
favorite? Look no further. The Fellowship
Board is sponsoring potluck dinners during
Lent and will be providing the table
service, drinks, and set-up for the potlucks.
Each week will have a different theme, so
look for the sign-up sheets in the narthex. The potlucks are
downstairs in the education wing and run from 5:30 to 6:30
pm on each of the Wednesdays listed. Join us for food,
fellowship, and fun!
Consecration Sunday is a time when we
celebrate the gifts God has given us and
respond with a commitment of financial
stewardship. Commitments are made during
the worship service in a private and prayerful
way.
MIDWEEK LENT SERVICES begin Feb. 13 with the Ash
Wednesday service. There will be no confirmation or Preconfirmation that evening. Midweek Lent

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO JOIN BASIC! BASIC is a
fantastic way to study God’s Word and fellowship with other
members of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church. New BASIC
small groups have been formed and will begin meeting together
very soon. Did you miss the deadline to sign-up for a group?
Please contact Christy Stapf ([email protected]), and she
will make sure you are placed in a group that is just right for
you!
WOMEN’S MINISTRY
♪♪♪ DO YOU WANT TO KNOW A SECRET? ♫ ♫
♪♪♪ DO YOU PROMISE NOT TO TELL? ♫ ♫
Can you keep a secret for a whole year! We encourage you
to try! It’s once again time to sign up for the Secret Prayer
Sister’s Ministry. The Prayer Sister Ministry is a year-long
program designed to allow ladies within our congregation an
opportunity to pray for and get to know a fellow sister in
Christ. Names are drawn at random and matched up with
another member. There are many ways you can keep in
touch with your SECRET sister throughout the year: cards,
notes, small gifts, a flower, or just saying “Hello” to her on
Sunday mornings. WE WOULD
LOVE TO HAVE JOIN US! If you
have tried secret sisters before and have
not participated in a few years, we
encourage you to give it a try again this
year. Under the same token, if you are
new to Beautiful Savior we would encourage you to try us
out! We are planning our events for the year, and would like
to bring back some “Old Favorites” from past years. We are
hoping to have at least one event every quarter and include
some community service as well. Forms are available in the
narthex. Place completed forms in mailbox #176 by
February 24. Any questions, or if you have an idea for us,
we would love to hear from you. Coordinators are:
I am the face of BASIC – meet Mark and Nancy Chapin.
We were invited to join a BASIC group within the first few
weeks of visiting BSLC for the first time. The small group
setting was a good mixture of Bible Study and fellowship, and
was a significant factor in our decision to transfer our
membership to BSLC. BASIC allows us a chance to get to
know various members on a more intimate basis, and because
of that, our group is always so supportive of each other. So
now, we look forward to our monthly BASIC get-togethers, as
they offer the opportunity to forget about the daily stresses and
problems we encounter during the work week as we study
God’s Word in a less formal setting than on Sunday mornings.
PARISH EDUCATION
SUNDAY SCHOOL – Sunday School this week – The
children will start off with the third lesson in the
Consecrated Stewards program and then transition into
Luke 4:31-44 where they will learn about Jesus healing
many. The education hour offering is currently being
collected for Heifer International. Since 1944, Heifer
International has been working with people of all faiths to
provide farm animals that help families around the world
become self-reliant for food and income. For more
information on Heifer please visit www.heifer.org.
Sunday School classes throughout the building have voted
on animals that they would like to purchase for families.
Watch our progress as we meet these goals with the
animal display on the wall as you enter the education
wing or the Sunday School bulletin board by the nursery.
