Reflection for the Christian Life

As we read of the baptism of Jesus in the waters of the Jordan, and his subsequent time in the wilderness resisting Satan, and his return to Galilee to begin his ministry, it is AMAZING to think that Pastor Matt is right there, right now, where it all happened. Be sure to pray for his safety as well as his enlightenment during this pilgrimmage to the Holy Lands, and pray for those who have generously provided this opportunity to him.

LENTEN SERIES
Feb 18-Mar 25

 Our annual Lenten Series begins today, on Sunday, February 18th, and continues on Sunday evenings through March 25th. As is tradition, we will hold a potluck dinner in the Fellowship Hall at 5:30 p.m. Then our program will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m.

This year we will be hosting a series of religious clergy to educate us on their specific lines of faith. Each week we will hear a talk about a different faith or church.

We will hear clergy from Islam, the Antiochian Catholic Church, Judaism, the Coptic Orthodox Church, the African Methodist Episcopal Church, and the Greek Orthodox Church.

Please consider coming to this great opportunity to learn about other faiths and churches. You may either bring a potluck meal to share or just come to hear our speaker for the evening. We would love to see you there, and please invite a friend!
