Events

Friday Lunch

Ash Wednesday Gathering – for everyone!
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of lent and it is on March 6th this year. Please plan to bring a dish to share at 5:30pm on Wednesday March 6 and stay for an interactive worship time from 6 to 6:45 pm. We will be making nail crosses and considering what Jesus meant when he said, “take up your cross and follow me”. We will prepare the sanctuary for the six weeks of lent by changing the paraments to purple (cloths on pulpit and communion table). We will also make ashes from last year’s palm branches and then receive ashes as we close our worship time together. Please plan to be there for this wonderful family/inter-generational time together!

Grief Support Group
Starting March 7th, we will met on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month at 1 pm for tea and conversation. This will be an informal time together to share how we are doing and whatever is on our hearts as we support one another in our grief. Depending on the size of the group we will either meet in my office or the Fellowship Hall. If this sounds like something for you, I hope you will come.

Opportunities to Serve

Coffee Hour
Please consider hosting this wonderful time together for one week or
more in the coming year. It is up to you what you bring to share. You
may put on a pot of coffee or use the single serve machine (especially
nice now that we have reusable coffee pods) There will be a sign up
sheet in the Gathering Space.
