Ash Wednesday, February 26
Service Times To Be Announced

Lent is a period of forty days which extend from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday, omitting Sundays. All Christians are invited "to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy Word" (BCP, p. 265 - Ash Wednesday liturgy). 
Adult Classroom Help Wanted!
We need YOU to join the Kids Club and Jr. Youth rooms!

A new year brings a renewal of our commitment to our kids. When kids are baptized we promise, as a church, to assist in raising them in the faith. Safe Church policies also require two adults to be present with children of the church. 

Kids Club and Jr. Youth each need a second adult to assist in the classroom each week. Jean Arnold and Natalee Hill have lessons plans in hand, but another active helper each week with Kids Club, and another person to be with the Jr. Youth are much needed. We are happy to create a rotation list. The kids are full of energy, excitement, curiosity, and unexpected insight. You'll love being a part of our team!

Please contact Natalee Hill for more information.
