Ash Wednesday - February 26th



Ash Wednesday is a day that the church gathers to confess individual and corporate sin. We signify this repentance by placing the sign of the cross with ashes that were rendered from Palm Sunday palms. There will be three opportunities for the congregation to receive ashes to reminf us from dust we were made and dust we shall return but nothing can separate us from the love of God !

Preschool Chapel at 8:45 a, and 12:45 pm (congregation is invited to attend) Ash Wenesday service at New Market, 7 pm.

Sunday Lenton Study Starts March 1st at 9:30 am in schoolhouse



All are invited to join the adult Sunday school class at the schoolhouse as we begin a seven week Lenten Study, called On the Road Again – A Faith Journey by James W. Moore. 

“Each year as we move toward Easter, we make a road trip. We join Jesus on the road as he moves to and through the cross. It is interesting to note that some of Jesus’ most powerful and poignant experiences happened on the road. In a real sense, we could say that Jesus spent his whole life on the road. He was born on a road trip. He died on a road trip. And one of his most dramatic post-Resurrection appearances occurred on the road to Emmaus. In this Lenten study, we will explore the significance of Jesus’ experiences on the road, and we will take a closer look at some of the people he met along the way.”

The class will start at 9:30 a.m. starting, Sunday March 1st in the schoolhouse. 

Wednesday Lenton Study starts March 4th


 A small group of us experimented with participating in an Advent study at the schoolhouse this last advent season and we enjoyed it so much, we have decided to meet again for a Lenten study.  The decision has been made on the Lenten study, it is called Give Up Something Bad for Lent by James W. Moore.  The study will start on Wednesday, March 4th and go to Wednesday April 8th.  We begin at 10:00 a.m. and have a light luncheon after. Between the study and fellowship the meeting usually lasts about 2 hours.  We are still discerning on which curriculum to study, but wanted to get the dates and times out to those who would be interested in an effort to have the study material ordered and ready to begin on the 4th.  There could me a slight fee for the books we purchase of $10 to $15, or they could be free depending on the study, those details will be communicated in the next few weeks.   It is a very enjoyable mid-week get together and we hope you will join us.  A sign-up sheet will be posted in the sanctuary or if you forget to sign-up, feel free to contact Patty Robinson and she will note your request to attend.

Senior Saint Potluck



When: Sunday, March 15th after the 11:00 a.m, service

Location:  Schoolhouse 

This annual potluck is to honor all the Senior Saints in our church.  Our friend is dancing above because this means anyone 65 or older just comes and enjoys the dinner. 

On the other hand, it means anyone 64 or younger has to pick up the slack and create a wonderful potluck dinner.  There will be a signup sheet in the back of the church.  Three columns one for folks who are planning on attending and one for folks who will bring the food --- we would need those volunteers to bring two covered dishes.  Also, there will be a column for those who want to help decorate the schoolhouse, probably on Saturday, specific time will be announced. 

This is one of the most enjoyable potluck we host, so please come for great food and wonderful fellowship

Cooming Soon !! VBS 2020 - July 27th to July 21st
