Ash Wednesday – February 18 TONIGHT – Please join us for an Ash Wednesday service in the Sanctuary beginning at 7:30 p.m. tonight. 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.

Scholarship Opportunities from the Church – Here at the UMC at Newfoundland, we have a wonderful scholarship for a graduating senior who’s an active member of our church and plans to be a full-time student next year. And there are a number of United Methodist scholarships and loans available through the Greater New Jersey Annual Conference and the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry. These funds are for both traditional 18 to 21 year-old students and those who are beginning their higher education later in life or working on a second degree. Rich can give you more information, and the websites also have all the information you’ll need, as well as application requirements and forms. Check them out – the conference website is www.gnjumc.org and the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry website is www.gbhem.org. Due dates for many applications are in March, for the Newfoundland scholarship in May.
