Noisy Offering This Sunday, February 8 – The wonderful monthly tradition of our children collecting coins during the worship service and making a noisy offering as they pour the coins into a metal pan will take place during this Sunday’s worship.  Please remember to bring your noisy change along with your regular offering.  The kids love being “junior ushers” and the funds go to important missions and ministries of our church.  Thanks!

Adult Bible Study, Wednesday, February 11 – Join us at the Parsonage, 75 La Rue Road, at 7:30 p.m. as we explore some of the very early Christian writings that were not included in our Bible.  These faith writings of early followers of Jesus still have much to teach us in the twenty first century.  We hope to see you there.

Ash WednesdayFebruary 18 – Please join us for an Ash Wednesday service in the Sanctuary beginning at 7:30 p.m. on February 18.  This service will start our Lenten forty days of spiritual preparation for Easter.  The service is designed to be reflective as we center ourselves in faith journeying with Jesus toward Calvary and resurrection on Easter morning.
