Legacy and Endowment Scholarships for 2013 Each spring, our Legacy & Endowment Team is charged with the task of selecting and awarding at least one scholarship to a graduating high school senior or a currently enrolled college student studying for an undergraduate degree. The team has started to accept applications now and will continue until April 20th 2013. Please call the church office at 303-791-0803 or go online to www.clchr.org to get an application. The student must have a 3.0 grade point average to be considered for the scholarship.

CLC Scrip Gift Cards

Do you have a birthday celebration coming up? Or maybe a spring home improvement project? Please don’t forget that Scrip gift cards are always available for order here at CLC. Our order form includes a large selection of restaurants and stores, and many more are available by checking out www.glscrip.com. We also keep a complete list of available merchants, along with order forms, in the basket by the information wall in the narthex. I’d like to highlight our program through King Soopers. All of the King Soopers gift cards purchased from CLC are reloadable. When we reach $5,000 in reloads in one month, King Soopers sends us a check for 5% of the total reloaded amount. We had over $6,000 in reloads the past 2 months, which translates into $600+ to CLC. You may either reload your card at the Customer Service Center, or simply hand it to the cashier prior to checking out with your groceries. You may put as much, or as little, on the card as you wish, and then swipe the card to pay for the groceries. We currently have approximately 20 families using this program and I’d love to see this number doubled or tripled! Please contact Sallie Burns at sburns@clchr.org if you have any questions about our Scrip gift card program. Thanks so much for your support!

It’s That Time Again!

“You make known to me the path of life; You will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.”

Psalm 16:11

What preoccupies your time? Attention? Thoughts? As I write it is snowing another few inches on top of last Sunday’s snow storm of at least 12 inches. It is hard to believe that spring is just around the corner! Or should I say, just below the surface? Every year I marvel at the power of nature when life seems to have gone away but again, it is merely sleeping just below what we see. This image of nature and life also reminds me that just beyond nature is the Creator. If we marvel at nature and life, how much more so may we marvel at the Creator of it all? The white blanket of snow covering the landscape is unseeingly watering the roots of grass, trees and flowers. The moisture it brings to the ground also brings life giving water to insects and actually keeps warm those creatures that have dug into the protection of the earth. These are the ways of the Creator that sustains life from season to season, year to year, out in the open and beyond our sight. Soon it will be Easter! Which will be symbolized in flowers and butterflies! Young animals and eggs, all emphasizing life, new life, resurrected life! To a young child this is a surprising joy! A mature faith will tell us we still have a lot of winter left and like spring to get to Easter at the other end we will have to pass through all of Lent and Holy Week. The cross of Christ leads us to Easter Resurrection; we must go through Jesus’ passion in order to get to the Joy of Easter!

An even more mature faith also understands that that Joy of Easter is everywhere and at all times. It is the joy to be found in nearly every aspect of life, the four seasons and the seasons of life. In a recent devotion for our staff meeting we heard about the joy of the simplest things, the joy of a child in a dance of delight, and then asked the question about “what keeps us from such joy?” Don’t let your preoccupations prevent you from missing the Joy of Easter on March 31st and throughout each day and each year! Palm Sunday: March 24th Maundy Thursday: March 28th 7 p.m. Good Friday: March 29th noon and 7p.m. Easter Saturday Celebration March 30th 5 p.m. Easter Sunday Celebration March 31st 6:30, 8, 9:30 & 11a.m.


Dynamite: Exploding for Christ! We loved sharing our February meeting with members of the OWLS group. The kids shared devotion time on the 10 Commandments and then had a friendly competition of Bible Blitz! Everyone had fun playing games and talking with each other. A special thanks to the parents who stayed and cleaned up after dinner! Our next meeting will be March 10 from 5-7pm. A few members of Chicks with Sticks will attend and we will work on completing Peace Pal dolls. These knitted dolls will make their way around the world and will be held in the arms of a child. What an amazing way to share God’s love. Questions: please contact Gary Knutson or Erika Alpern at eajteach@yahoo.com

Volunteer Spotlight: Jill Staub I volunteer my time to keep myself busy. I've sewn dresses for Uganda, which kept me busy for quite a while as I made 80 dresses, and loved doing it. I also help Gary with set up for confirmation on Wednesdays, and help with the youth group and Lenten dinners to make money for the mission trips. I have been on two and will be going to help again this year. I also like to help out with the Harrington Christmas gifts and at the spring carnival.

MARCH PRESCHOOL NEWS: They often say that March comes in like a lamb and out like a lion... hmmm. We know that this means the weather, and in Colorado one never knows. However, here in the preschool we just look at how blessed we are to have so many lambs in our presence and a lion here and there just adds to the mystery and fun we share every day! We first want to thank everyone who helped us make our Book Fair goal in February. We came in at $2500.00. Given there was a blizzard in the mix we are so glad for those that ventured out. We are so very thankful for the support from our parents and our congregation. In March we will be getting things organized for Easter and be on Spring break the last week of the month. We wish everyone a very happy Easter season and when reflecting on this period of time, remember to keep things simple and enjoy those moments that you will treasure always. Many blessings, Deb and Blair

Pastor DJ’s Message Sometimes you do things just because someone else tells you to. In my case, my calendar is pretty much my unquestionable boss. Every now and then it pops in my head that I have no idea why I am doing something and it just so happened that this year I looked at March 17th and thought, “Why on earth do I celebrate leprechauns and beer and the color green?” Perhaps more importantly, I thought, “Who on earth is Saint Patrick?” First, it’s helpful to note that March 17th is the day that St. Patrick died, which is why the commemoration is held on that day. This is pretty common for the saints and martyrs of the church. Their birth dates are not memorialized but rather the date they “entered the church triumphant” as we say, is the date we remember. It should come as no shock that St. Patrick comes from Ireland sometime in the late fourth century. Around the turn of the fifth century he was captured and made a slave to herd and tend sheep. After about five years he escaped to Britain because of a vision he received from God in his sleep. Soon, he received another dream which called him back to Ireland to serve as a priest and bishop. He spent most of his time as a traveling evangelist until his death in the 460s. He is to this day the patron saint of Ireland because he brought Christianity there. He was a prolific author and had many miracle stories attributed to him as well, most of them having to do with resurrections. There were 33 such stories that surround St. Patrick including bringing a horse back to life as well as a resurrection of his own step-father. Perhaps the most significant thing that St. Patrick was known for, however, was his ability to stand in the midst of pagans who sought to do him harm and come away with the group of people as newly converted Christians. Turning the other cheek proved to be a quite persuasive Gospel message. While medieval celebrations on March 17th celebrated the saint, more modern celebrations have become a celebration of Irish culture (think Oktoberfest except everything is green). You most likely won’t need to head to work on March 17th of this year, but that’s only because it falls on a Sunday. It is helpful to borrow some of the symbols of St. Patrick’s Day when discussing our faith life. For instance, St. Patrick used the clover (the three leaf variety, obviously) to teach the doctrine of the Trinity. So while it has lost some of its religious significance, it can become an opportunity to reflect on God in a few different ways: the Trinity itself, the connection of all peoples into one group (Everyone’s Irish, but we would say everyone is a child of God), or the need for common things to be able to relay the good news to people. Hope you have a happy St. Patrick’s Day, Pastor DJ

Please join us on March 11th at 10:00am to help stuff the eggs. Then, grab a bag of eggs from the Narthex on the weekend of March 16th & 17th and take them with you to toss. This is great fun especially for the kids.

Easter Shuttle

Please don’t forget to ride the shuttle for Easter Sunday. At a time when we worship over 2000 people on a weekend this will insure that our guests have a place to park. The shuttle will run back and forth from the southeast corner of the AMC parking lot across from Outback from 7:10 to 12:30 am Easter Sunday March 31st. This is a fun way to meet others on your way to worship.

Sunday School Happenings

Help us spread some smiles! CLC Sunday School will be holding a game board drive from Feb 10th-March 31st for Project Sanctuary. (Just a few examples: Spot It, Uno, Monopoly, etc). Doesn’t necessarily need to be a board game.

3 year olds Teacher for April & May, Helper for April & May

Faith Talk at Home: What is Faith Talk at home? After Sunday School be sure to check our facebook page for continuing questions on our Sunday School Lessons. Martin Luther believed that faith is not just for church but also living and learning beginning at home through discussion which will often spur ideas in which to show God’s Love for us. Books of the Bible and Cup Stacking: Our 2nd-6th graders are learning the books of the bible to songs. After we work on this for awhile we will learn CUP STACKING! How cool to go from learning the books of the bible to cup stacking! A special thanks to Jordan Green for assisting in this fun project!
