Pastor Brenda On Vacation
Pastor Brenda will be on vacation March 23- March 26th. Pastor Richard Dowling will be on call for pastoral emergencies. You can contact him at 608-628-4230.
Holy Week & Easter
We are Christians because of the events of what we now call Holy Week. Jesus experienced highs and lows, the betrayal and judgment, death, and the power of God to resurrect him to new life. There is power for us is in realizing our lives mirror those realities. The more we engage in the services of Holy Week the more Easter will become a celebration of New Life.

Please join the Cambridge community churches on Good Friday at 12 noon, for the Community Cross Walk Worship Service.  We will begin at the Main Street side of Veterans’ Park, and continue to four other stations to hear the story of Jesus’ passion.  This is always a beautiful and meaningful service, and this is how EKLC remembers Holy Friday.  If you are not able to come to this service and would like to worship somewhere for Good Friday, please find a church nearby for a worship service. Pastor Brenda would be happy to help you find a place to worship as well.

Holy Communion Class 
On April 2, at 11:30, people of all ages are welcome to come explore the meaning of Holy Communion. We will learn about our Lutheran understanding of Communion, make bread for worship on Maundy Thursday, and have a great discussion on what it all means to receive the bread and wine - the body and blood of Jesus - as we sit at Christ’s table.  This class is really for anyone of any age.  If you’ve been receiving communion and would like to learn and discuss more, you are welcome.  If you haven’t been taking communion, and would like to start, you are welcome.  Adults can attend on their own, and please make sure a child is accompanied by an adult.  We will have lunch together, and you will go home with your own loaf of delicious bread!

EKLC’s CONNECT Team has been working together to discover new ways that God is leading our congre-
gation toward sharing and spreading God’s love in our community. Our Team has some really fun activities planned for EKLC, and you'll be introduced to them in worship on April 2! We hope to see lots of people there. You won’t want to miss this!

College Care Packages 
It’s that time of year again!  EKLC college students are preparing for end-of-semester finals. Please bring college-friendly goodies and treats to help these people know that we are praying for them and they are loved. Examples of care package goodies include: home baked cookies or brownies, ramen noodles, easy mac packets, oatmeal packets, microwave popcorn, candy, granola bars, pop tarts, gum, tea or coffee bags, or anything you can think of!  Non food items might include chapstick, pens or pencils, or little bottles of hand sanitizer. Let your imagination run wild - what might you like to use while you are studying? We will also need shoe boxes, newspaper and brown paper bags for packing/
shipping. We will collect items through Easter Sunday. There are 28 packages to pack this spring.  

Food, Fellowship, FunWe had our fourth Food, Fellowship and Fun luncheon and card party on Monday, March 6th. There were 20 in attendance. This has been a successful event and will continue to be on the agenda.

If you are interested in helping plan this event, please sign-up on the sheet provided in the Narthex
As we prepare to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Upper Church we are planning to have a commemorative service later this summer. We hope to expand our regular worship service with a bit of history, some special music, all to be followed by a reception. The community will be invited to join us on what we hope will be a day of great fellowship. Of course, this type of event will require many willing hands.
