CHURCH TALENT SHOW! WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27 –7:00 p.m.
Our annual church wide rummage sale will be held April 5 from 8:00-2:00 and April 6th from 9:001:00. A huge thank you goes to Donna Malone who is organizing this event. If you have any donations, or would like to help out in any way, please contact her or leave a message at the church office. NOTE: We are accepting furniture (except couches, mattresses and TVs), all manner of household items, clothing, books and kids stuff. All proceeds benefit the Deacon and Deaconess Fund of the church.
Our annual Easter Celebration for kids and families will be held on Saturday, April 13th. We’ll have crafts, songs, treats, and stories designed to teach the kids the meaning of Easter, along with our popular Easter basket give-away and, of course, plenty of candy to go around! If you’d like to help with the event, please speak with Holly McIntosh. We will also be collecting donations of candy and miscellaneous items for the baskets. Watch the church bulletin in coming weeks for more details.
The season of Lent begins Wednesday, March 6, Ash Wednesday. It is a time of reflection and soul searching when we remember what our Savior Jesus Christ endured before His death on the cross. Our joy is complete on Resurrection Sunday or Easter when we rejoice in His rising and victory over death but we must take the time at least once a year to focus on the journey before that glorious day.
This year each Sunday of Lent we will unlight candles, an opposite ceremony from Advent when we add lights each week. We start with all seven candles lit and following a time of readings we will extinguish a candle. Each week we start with one less candle lit until on Maundy Thursday only the white Christ candle is lit and then it too is extinguished at the end of the service. The songs the Choir will be singing every Sunday bring some of Christ’s attributes to us through music. Love, light and loneliness will be some of the attributes.
We will have a talent show on March 27 at 7:00 p.m.. Start thinking and practicing your act for this event and let me know what talent you will be presenting! I have begun a music study program with the kids on Wednesday evening before their Bible study. My hope is for them to see how important and joyful music is in our praise to God. Make a joyful noise!
