No Women's Bible Study This Week

Due to a conflict in Mother Susan's schedule, there will be no Women's Bible Study this morning.  But all women are welcome to gather next Thursday at 10 AM when we continue our exploration of women of the Old Testament.  No previous knowledge of the Bible necessary and drop-ins are always welcome!
Evening Prayer & Potluck Supper

On Wednesdays at 6:00 pm in Lent (March 29, April 5) join us for a Potluck Supper. Bring a simple dish to share with members of our community. Afterwards, join us at at 7:00 pm for Evening Prayer in the Church. We will use a simple musical setting by Marty Haugen called the Holden Evening Prayer.
