 Upcoming Sunday Messages:

  • February 26th -- "What Me... Worry?" Isn’t it curious that Jesus would counsel us on worry.  Does he really know us that well?  Does he know how we toss and turn over worrisome things?  Certainly, our Lord doesn’t want us to stop caring and to act as if nothing matters?  But how then are we to live as persons who are both deeply committed to the things that matter, and yet not to worry? Scripture Texts:   Matthew 6:24-34; Psalm 131

Consider this as a supplement and support to the pastoral care that our Pastor provides. If you have a crisis, or compelling need, know that one of the deacons will be on call.

  • Preparing for the Spring Fling Rummage Sale Friday, March 31st and Saturday, April 1st are the dates for the annual Spring Fling Rummage Sale.  Start thinking about boxing up those clothes that are now too big after keeping your New Year’s resolution to lose those extra pounds.  If that didn’t work perhaps you just want a wardrobe change.  The stage will be ready to receive your donations on March 1st.  REMINDER: Clothing, shoes, accessories and linens only.  Save the other goodies for the yard sale.  ========================================================= Also be thinking about how you can help this year.  If you’ve never helped before, make this your first experience, and I’m sure you will enjoy the fun we have as we work the week ...
