Dear Friends,

Our Weekly Bible Study continues on Monday, February 13th. We gather in the Fellowship Hall on Monday at 10:00 a.m. for a brief "Prayer at Noon" from the Book of Common Prayer. Then we read and discuss the readings for the coming Sunday. All are welcome. Please join us if you are able.

The Collect for the Third Sunday in Lent

Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Many thanks to Judy Feick for the flowers used in our worship today, donated to the greater glory of God, and in honor of David Feick.

Our Outreach Project for March
Disaster Relief in Syria and Turkey
through Episcopal Relief and Development

Please let folks know that they can get credit for their donations to ERD relief for Turkey and Syria, if they mark their checks for that and put them in the regular offering plate, or the container in the back of the church. They can also give those checks to Jess or me directly. (But the offering plate and envelopes are just as easy!)
Many thanks to Betty Flanders for the calendar

The Collect for Saint Thomas the Apostle

Ever living God, who strengthened your Apostle, Thomas,
with firm and certain faith in your Son’s resurrection:
Grant us so perfectly, and without doubt, to believe
in Jesus Christ, our Lord and our God,
that our faith may never be found wanting in your sight;
through him who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
