Thanks so much to all who've signed up to provide ingredients for the February chili lunch at Faith Kitchen. Still needed are: 15 pounds of ground beef, 10 large (28 ounce) cans of crushed tomatoes, 14 (15 ounce) cans of black, white or kidney beans, and fresh fruit (apples, bananas, and/or oranges). Your offerings are needed in the Parish Hall kitchen by Sunday, February 17.


If you're thinking longingly of summer, now is a great time to make plans to prepare and serve the Homeless Solutions dinner on Friday, July 26 or Friday, August 23. If you think this might be a ministry for you, Maureen Budd will be happy to let you know what's involved.

Sign-up sheets for Faith Kitchen and Homeless Solutions are posted in the narthex.

February is 'Try Something New' Month!

Shake off the cold mid winter and try something new!
