Celebrating New Covenant Partners
& A Baptism
This past Sunday in the traditional service we celebrated and welcomed a group of new covenant partners here at St. Giles.
From left to right they are: Pepper Spencer, David & Beth Vaugn, Lois Badey, Carol Gay, and Judy & Charles Clough.
We also are overjoyed to welcome Christopher Spencer into the family as a child of the covenant through his baptism.

Let us join together in praising God for new family!
Church Work Day - Saturday, March 18
Mark your calendars, Saturday March 18 from about 9:00-1:00 we will be having a church work day. Donuts and coffee will be available at 8:30 and we will join together in bringing some Spring cleaning and beautification to our wonderful church building and grounds. For questions, please contact Steve Partlow.

Maundy Thursday Art & Worship
Every Holy Week, we look forward to worshiping with our sister churches, Christ Presbyterian and Community West. For Holy Week this year, we are excited to collaborate with Make Studio to have a Maundy Thursday art experience followed by a brief Communion Service. 
The art experience will be a time of contemplative reflection aimed at entering into Holy Week. There will be live music, prayer, and creative opportunities. The featured artists for this event are Craig Jones and Brendan Rigdon.

The studio will be open from 5:00-6:45.
Communion service will be from 7:00-7:45.
This Sunday we will be having our monthly healing prayer services in both the traditional and contemporary services. These are not only one of the most significant rhythms we have as a body of Christ at St. Giles, but they are also excellent times to invite those we know who need prayer and the healing touch of Christ in their lives.
