Additionally, $130 was raised for the Heifer Fund.
Throughout the season of Lent, which begins with Ash Wednesday on February 14, we will be reflecting on what Jesus said to his followers and those seeking to understand his ministry. On Ash Wednesday, we will begin with what Jesus had to say about humility in the disciplines of our faith – fasting, giving to others, and prayer. The service is at 7:00 pm and will include the impostion of ashes. Join us as we begin our journey to Jerusalem.
We will be doing a study of 1st and 2nd Thessalonians and Colossians. Come for a lively discussion and good learning! What better New Year’s resolution than to learn more from scripture!
The New Horizons Band will be rehearsing in our sanctuary each Tuesday from 10:00 am til noon. This is a group of retired musicians who simply love to get together and play. Sometime in the course of their season, we hope to have them give a concert for us! Welcome to our new musical neighbors!
