Upcoming Events and Announcements
GIFT-Wednesday, March 12th, at 6:00 PM in Fellowship Hall: plan to join your church family for dinner! GIFT is an intergenerational potluck for our church friends and families. No RSVP is necessary, but plan to bring a dish to share. For information, contact Julie Boden.
The Lenten book study began and continues through Wednesday of Holy Week, April 16th. No single event in human history has received more attention than the suffering and crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. In his book, 24 Hours That Changed the World, author Adam Hamilton guides us through the last twenty-four hours of Jesus' life. Each chapter is designed to help the reader experience and understand the significance of Jesus' suffering and death in a way you have never done before. Questions are posed that invite self-reflection, penitence, confession and a deeper understanding of one's self in relationship to Jesus Christ. Join a study group to retrace the last 24 hours of Jesus' life with us. The cost of the book is $12.00 and may be purchased in the Fellowship Hall following worship or in the church office. Small groups will meet:
- Thursday night, 7pm, at the home of Glenn & Robin Stevens with Rev. Denise Weaver facilitating.
- Sunday morning, 9:30 am, in the Upper Room with Amber Baer facilitating.
- Sunday morning, 11:40 am, in the Chapel with Rev. Joe Hookey facilitating.
- Wednesday, 12noon, in the Fellowship Hall with Harry and Barbara Bradbury facilitating.
- Wednesday night, 7pm, in Room 109 with Carol Bussey facilitating.
