Ash Wednesday Services

There will be two Ash Wednesday services TODAY. 12 noon – Imposition of Ashes and 6:00 pm- Pancake supper and intergenerational Family Service.

Help with Pancake supper TONIGHT

We are looking for helpers to help set up for the pancake supper which starts at 6. We would need you here at 5:30pm (tables, chairs, etc.) Everyone will be helping to clean up. Jeanne and hopefully a helper will be making the pancakes.

WE ARE WORKING BUILDING CHICKEN PIES!

WE HAVE MADE THE DOUGH, TURNED THE DOUGH INTO DOUGH BALLS, ROASTED AND PICKED THE CHICKENS, AND THE GRAVY IS ON THE WAY….

HERE IS WHAT IS UP NEXT:

– February 11, Thursday: roll pie bottoms at 8:30 am

– February 12, Friday: roll pie tops at 8:30 am and assemble those yummy chicken pies to be boxed and sold from 2:00-5:30 pm.

The February 12th CHICKEN PIE SALE is a significant fund-raiser for our church, which helps us, in turn, be able to give back to the community at large…it’s a win-win! We have many enthusiastic patrons who have already ordered our delicious chicken pies and incomparable gravy.

Now we need enthusiastic volunteers who would like to be part of a fun-loving team to create 430+ chicken pies! Bring a friend along, too.

Also during that week, we’re looking for volunteers to perform other tasks, such as building the pie boxes and cutting up frozen chicken from Sysco.

Thank you in advance for blocking out the week of February 8-12. We sincerely appreciate any and all help you can give. Just the aromas in the kitchen will be enough to cheer you up during this bleak time of year…to say nothing of the fellowship we’ll all enjoy!

Presidents’ Day

The office will be closed on Monday, February 15 for Presidents’ Day

From W/F Tuesday Gals

Would anyone like to do one or both Bucilla 10 x 11Santa wall decoration wall kits. These would be for the church fair.

Possibly a needle would be needed. The closed kit seems to have everything else.
