LENTEN SERIES (3-1-17)
The Lent 2017 program is titled, “When Christians Get It Wrong.” This is a six-session, video-based program that explores why and how churches often estrange young adults and turn them away from the faith. This program will begin after a pot-luck supper on Ash Wednesday, and then these topics on six successive Sunday evenings (March 5, 12, 19, 26, April 2, 9).
NEW BULLETIN COVERS (3-1-17)
Beginning in March we will be printing the covers of our Sunday bulletins on site. We are asking all members to look through your photographs for some of those beautiful landscape pictures. Perhaps you are a little more creative and have a few sketches, or paintings just waiting to make a debut on our bulletin cover. All work will be printed in grey tones. We may add a scripture verse or a few words of praise to your work. Please join the fun! All ages are welcome to submit and please feel free to submit as often as you want and as many works. This will keep the costs of our bulletins down. You may submit your work in the Communication Center in a container or hand it directly to Pastor Matt or Nancy Ehrhart. Please place your name on it so we know who to return it to. Thanks to all of you in advance.
