Our theme for Lent will be, "A Light in the Darkness," as we seek the light of God's love in the midst of the shadows of life.   
 
Bring your friends!

Two Times the Fun!

They are hardy for this climate and can be planted outside when they are finished blooming. The deadline for ordering is Sunday, March 29, in order to get your memorial in print.

Envelopes for the special memorials are located at both narthex entrance tables. The price per potted lily is $11.

Easter Music Memorials 
You may make a memorial donation to the St. Luke's music program (please write 'Music Memorial' on the memo line of your check).

The deadline for placing your memorial is Sunday, March 29, in order to get your memorial in print though you may make a donation at any time.

Envelopes for the special memorials are located at both narthex entrance tables.

St. Luke's Book Club 
YOU ARE INVITED to St Luke's Book Club on March 18 at 7:00. We will be discussing a book drawn on new documents and genealogical research by Kate Clifford Larson, Bound for the Promised Land, Harriett Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero. Larson gives Tubman the powerful, intimate, meticulously detailed biography she deserves.
 
NEXT MEETING INFO: Lyman House, March 18, THIRD (3rd) Wednesday monthly at 7:00 PM for 2+- hours of rousing conversations and introductions to books of almost every genre. At the end of each meeting, we discuss books for the next month's selection, so bring your suggestions with you.
We invite you to join us!

Confirmation / Inquirer's Classes 
On Sunday, April 5 th, at 11:45am, we will begin a series of Confirmation/Inquirer's classes for those who wish to be confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church.  This is also a great opportunity for people who'd like to learn more about the basics of our faith.  This initial gathering will be organizational in nature, because we'll be doing the classes a little differently. 
 
We've learned over the years that it can be hard to find a date and time that works well enough for everyone to participate regularly.  So we're developing a series of videos, which will be available online.  We'll offer a lesson every week with visual aids and other materials delivered directly to your email inbox.  Then we'll have monthly gatherings to discuss what we've learned.  These meetings will be on Sunday's at 11:45am in Board Hall: May 3rd, June 7th, and June 28th.  Topics will include, "The Basics of the Bible," "The Practice of Prayer," "Baptism, Confirmation, & Communion - Our Connection to God," "What Makes Episcopalians Different?" and much more. 
 
At present, we do not have a date for Bishop White's annual visitation.  As soon as we receive that, we'll share it with the entire congregation.  I hope you can join us on Sunday, April 5th, at 11:45am in Board Hall as we start this adventure of learning and growth together.
