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.

The First Lesson
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.
The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Psalm 146
BCP 803
The Gospel
John 3:14-21
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."
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Christ.

The Communion of the People
If you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are welcome to share in the Bread and Wine of
Communion, regardless of your denominational background. 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

SUNDAY FORUM: God’s Acts of Salvation: Holy Week and the Passion
Next Week: God’s Acts of Salvation: The OT with Jeff Cooley
LENT = RITE I - In Lent our response to “The Lord be with you” will continue to
be “And also with you”. 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.
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. Contact Pastor Odie or Laurie Ascani immediately if interested. Andy and
Rainey Palmer had an outstanding time when they went last month with rave reviews
about the resort!
ADOPT-A-CHILD FOR EASTER BASKETS: Once again the Outreach Committee is
sponsoring this program for parishioners to supply Easter Baskets to the needy
children in residence at the Front Door Agency. The “Basket” with the names of
kids to adopt will be available on Sunday March 15th. Instructions will be provided
with the name of the specific child you adopt.
INQUIRERS’ CLASS: Saturday, March 21st 9:00AM – 12:00 Noon
Deepen your knowledge of your faith, religion and the Episcopal Church by
attending the Inquirers’ Class. There will be two sessions taught by the Pastor Odie.
The class is considered adequate preparation for anyone desiring to be confirmed or
received in the Episcopal Church when the Bishop comes to Southern Convocation
for Confirmation in April.
This fantastic event includes great food and auction items galore. Tickets are $100
per person but are available at $85 per person from Pastor Odie.
