Upcoming Events & Notices
LENTEN SERVICES: We will have quiet, contemplative Holy Communion services on
Wednesday evenings at 7:30 during Lent. Take a break from the busy days to reflect on our
Lenten journey and to give thanks for our faith. The services will be followed by an adult
education forum.
ADULT FORUM ON HOLY CURRENCIES: Six Blessings for Sustainable Missional Ministries is
the focus for our Lenten series. Written by The Rev. Eric Law, an Episcopal priest, the book
offers new insights into God's abundance by helping us explore the currencies of Relationship,
Truth, Wellness, Gracious Leadership, Time and Place, as well as Money. Kimberly Axtell and
Linda Taylor will lead our exploration. Reading the book is recommended but not required to
enjoy the forum. The class will be offered three times each week: Sundays at 8:30am and 12n
beginning Feb. 22, and Wednesday evenings at 8pm, beginning Feb. 25.
JV WORK DAY A few people have done a lot of work at the church during the past couple of
months. Now there is an opportunity (and a need) for a lot of people to pitch in and spruce
things up. There will be a Work Day on Saturday, March 14, starting at 8:30 AM. There
is a long list of jobs that need to be done, so please come and help!!
