We ask that you send prayers to Rev. Nancy’s Aunt Ida who is in the hospital following a heart attack.

Wednesday Lenten time together

Starting Wednesday, March 8th through Wednesday April 5th, please join your church family for a 5 week reflection time for all ages. We will start at 5:30 pm for those who would like to bring their own supper and eat with others. Then at 6:00 pm we will have a time for spiritual reflection together following “The Cup of Our Life, A Guide for Spiritual Growth” by Joyce Rupp. The only prerequisite and/or requirement is that you bring with you your favorite mug or cup – each family member should have their own. You will bring this cup every week.

Easter Morning Breakfast

We will be holding our annual Easter Breakfast at the church after the Sunrise Service at Skyline Farm. There is a sign up sheet on the Gathering Space table to let us know how many are coming from your family and what you would like to bring to share. If you would like to help with the breakfast please let Jeanne or Janine know. Ideas for sharing include fruit juice, cut up fruit, pastry, or anything that you would like. Donations will be taken during the breakfast with all proceeds going to Pilgrim Lodge Scholarships.
