IPOD DRIVE: One of our parishioners, Sarah Heimberg, is collecting used iPods for her Girl Scout Silver Award project, “Project Grace Notes: Music Therapy for Senior Citizens.” Sarah is working with a senior living community in Bedford. The residents in the community all have memory loss problems, because music is proven to boost memory, she is collecting iPods for the residents to upload their music to listen on. The iPods can be used, the more basic iPods, like the Shuffle, are preferred, and they do not need to have their original battery life. Please drop off all iPods to the CGS office or to one of the Clergy. The deadline for the Drive is March 29.

BCP 323 Hymnal S 91 BCP 167 THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD The First Lesson sitting Ephesians 2:1-10 You were dead through the trespasses and sins in which you once lived, following the course of this world, following the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work among those who are disobedient. All of us once lived among them in the passions of our flesh, following the desires of flesh and senses, and we were by nature children of wrath, like everyone else. God, who is rich in mercy, out of the great love with which he loved us even when we were dead through our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ-- by grace you have been saved-- and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God-- not the result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life. Reader: People: The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. Psalm 146 BCP 803 The Gospel Gospeller: People: John 3:14-21 standing The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. John Glory to you, Lord Christ. Jesus said to Nicodemus, "Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. "Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Those who believe in him are not condemned; but those who do not believe are condemned already, because they have not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and people loved darkness rather than light because their deeds were evil. For all who do evil hate the light and do not come to the light, so that their deeds may not be exposed. But those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that their deeds have been done in God." Gospeller: People: The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, Lord Christ.

Come to the rail at the direction of the ushers. Stand or kneel at the rail and receive the bread (a wafer) in the palm of your hand. Receive the wine either by drinking from the cup (guiding it to your lips) or by touching the wafer, which you have retained, lightly to the wine, being careful not to touch your fingers to the wine. If you decide not to receive the Bread and/or the Wine and would prefer to receive a blessing, simply cross your arms over your chest. If you are in need of a Glutenfree wafer instead of the regular bread wafer, please indicate this to the clergy at the time you are receiving communion.

Therefore ignore the response in the Prayer Book! In Lent we use Rite I for all celebrations of the Holy Eucharist. Rite I helps us experience the penitential nature of the season with its emphasis on our need for God’s forgiveness and mercy - our “vertical” relationship with God. Beginning with Easter, we return to Rite II, which emphasizes more the themes of joy, praise and the “horizontal” nature of our relationship with God. MAUNDY THURSDAY CORRECTION: In the middle of Maundy Thursday Eucharist, we always share the Lamb Dinner as we try to re-enact Jesus’s actions in the Upper Room when he shared the Passover Meal with the Apostles and then instituted taking the Bread and Wine “In remembrance of me.” This year the Vestry and clergy have decided that there will be NO CHARGE for the Lamb Dinner that is part of the liturgy. Since we only have room for 150 people for this service you will still be asked to make reservations by getting a ticket for the liturgy so that we can have an accurate count in preparing enough lamb. Please take note that the Lamb Dinner is part of the entire liturgy – it is not appropriate to come and go for only that part of the service. SOUP AND SEMINARS DINNER AT 6:00 PM, SEMINAR FROM 6:30 – 7:30 PM. For four (4) Wednesdays in Lent our topic of discussion will be Redemption in the Midst of Brokenness: Scripture, Family Systems Theory and You. The series will explore Scripture using the lens of Murray Bowen’s Family Systems Theory as a way to reflect on our own life experience and spiritual journeys. After enjoying good soup we will be engaged in a presentation and discussion. Led by Pastor Alanna. Two remaining Wednesdays March 18, 2015: Joseph and His Brothers: Influences of Sibling Position March 25, 2015: Disciples in Jerusalem: Family Systems & Anxiety ALTAR GUILD: needs coffee cans for our flower delivery ministry. The regular 1 lb. size and they can be either metal or plastic. Leave them Sundays in the sacristy or in the office during the week. ARUBA: CGS’s Timeshare is available to be reserved for any week in March of 2016. Cost to reserve your week vacation is $300 with the remaining $1,200 due in January.
