Wednesday Night Fellowship
On Wednesday, March 7th, we welcome representatives from Lily Pad Haven to hear about how they are responding to the human trafficking crisis in Charlotte.  This program was originally scheduled in January and had to be rescheduled due to snow.  Menu:  meat loaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, fruit, salad and dessert.
The Journey Class
Come join the Journey Class and find connection, community, and the gift of journeying through scripture together.  Hunter Morrison will facilitate this biblical-based conversation class in which people from all walks of life are invited to find an uplifting and strengthening message in Scripture, beginning with N. T. Wright's Lent for Everyone. The class meets on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. in Room 201 of the Education Building.  If you would like to receive a scanned copy of some of N.T. Wright's book to catch up or if you have any questions, contact Hunter Morrison by email or by text 704-807-8799.
Lenten Devotion Group
In the season of Lent, join Rachel Vogado on Thursdays at noon to reflect on Mary Oliver and the Poetry of Lent.  Come each week and take time to be led by scripture and share in the Lenten disciplines of paying attention, devotion, and prayer.  We will meet in the Sunroom of the Fellowship House; please feel free to bring your lunch.  All are welcome!
One Worship Service on Sunday, March 11
We will have only  one worship service at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, March 11th  to celebrate the 4th Sunday in Lent.  A nursery will be provided during worship for infants through preschool age children.  Please note that Sunday School classes will not meet on Sunday, March 11th.
Rise Against Hunger Event
Thanks to everyone who came out and made Sunday afternoon's Rise Against Hunger event so successful. With great help from all ages, we broke our own record and packed 10,000 meals in just under one hour! Thanks to Lynne Keel, Merl Hamilton, and all the other deacons who helped organize this wonderful afternoon!
Unveiling of New Church Logo!
In connection with the development of our new church website, our graphic designers have helped us imagine a new logo for church correspondence, newsletters, social media, and other uses. After a few false starts that just did not seem to fit our congregation, Rachel Vogado happened to notice the distinctive pattern gracing the needlepoint cushions on the chancel bench in our sanctuary. These patterns, lovingly envisioned and stitched by faithful women of our congregation years ago, are a perfect symbol of both our strong history and our bright future. A more complete story of this signature image will be included when the new website goes public (which we hope will happen later this month!).
