Come One! Come All!
Join us for a Mardi Gras Dinner and stay for Worship
Wednesday February 19th
Dinner at 5:15 pm
Worship at 6:00 pm
Wear your beads!
Ash Wednesday is February 26, 2020.
We will have worship with imposition of ashes and Holy Communion at 11:00 am & 6:30 pm.
God loves us more than anything.
This is the truth, the grace upon grace of the Incarnation, the cross, the resurrection of our Savior.
Can we practice this love?
Once every day -- and it will be easier if it’s the same time each day -- look in the mirror and say the following:
“I am God’s child, deserving of love and respect, and God will use me to change the world.”
May the wonder and tremendous mystery of the Incarnation fill your hearts this day, and always.
May the unwavering light of the Incarnation be your hope.
May you believe God has marvelous things in store for you.
Our Sunday School is starting a mission project called PICKLED NICKELS. The nickels collected will go to help people in need; the group to receive the donations is being voted on by our Sunday School families. As of this printing, it's a close race between Merrill's hungry and our homeless. We'll keep you posted. To help, just deposit your spare nickels in the big pickle jar in the narthex. (We hope to fill many jars!) We truly appreciate your 5-cent's worth!
Confirmation classes will restart on Wednesday, January 8, 2020. Please note that on the first & third Wednesdays of the month a meal is provided, beginning at 5:15 p.m, followed by worship at 6:00. We hope to see you there!
Coffee Hour Fellowship
Plan to stay after service on Sunday morning to visit in the lounge. Each week we will have a team or individual host the snacks and coffee. If you are interesting in hosting, sign up on the bulletin board.
