Training Disciples – Lenten Series will be every Wednesday at 6pm: March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29. We’ll be gathering for a meal and then a time of prayerful, reflective bible study, following author Kate Bowler’s curriculum “Bless the Lent We Actually Have.” Visit our Christian Ed page for more info (and to view previous weeks!).
Note: These evenings will be live-streamed! So please check our facebook page if you’d like to participate online (live-stream will start around 6:30, or whenever we finish eating).

Meals for Our members: Please be an angel and share your kindness with JoEllen and Brooke. JoEllen will have shoulder surgery and we can help her by providing meals. Please sign-up on the calendar in the fellowship hall and bring them something to eat.

  • They have no food allergies
  • All meals should be already prepared and in disposable containers
  • Your meal should be tender and easy for Brooke to cut up.

Meals will start on March 21st with one evening meal each week day and two meals on Saturday and Sunday.

Blessing of the Seeds: God has heard our prayers for moisture this winter! Now it is time to turn our prayers to planting as spring draws closer. All farmers and gardeners are invited to bring a few seeds, or a handful, to worship on Sunday, March 26, as we ask for God’s blessing on another year of growing.
