Weekly Highlights
We ask your help in putting together a Lenten devotional. We invite everyone to write a short meditation on one (or more) of the gospel lessons appointed during Lent.

You can access the readings for each day of Lent by going to:  www.lectionarypage.net

Click on any of the days in Lent (February 27 to April 10) and chose a gospel lesson that speaks to you and has meaning for you, and about which you would like to write a short meditation.

Once you have chosen a gospel lesson you want to write about, sign up for that lesson and corresponding day on the signup sheet in the back of the church.

When writing your meditation speak from the heart. We suggest a piece of somewhere between 50 to 250 words. You can email this text to Carol or Tami or give them a handwritten or typed note by Monday, February 24th.

We will compile the meditations in a booklet, and publish it on Ash Wednesday, February 26 th  for distribution to the congregation.
 
One other suggestion for Lent: don’t give something up, take something on. Make it your Lenten discipline to attend church every Sunday during Lent, and perhaps even the midweek service each Wednesday at 7:30 pm. You might find this to be a powerful and important formation tool as it observes the season.
 
If you have any questions, please contact either  Carol  or  Tami .

It will be a simple overnight, beginning at 9:00 am Saturday April 25th and ending Sunday April 26th just before lunch. We will leave from St. Thomas early on Saturday (about 7:00 am) and return around 1:00 pm on Sunday. As in past years we will carpool, something made easier by beginning on Saturday.

The cost of the retreat is 180.00 for a double occupancy room and 240.00 dollars for a single occupancy room. This includes the cost of two breakfasts, lunch, and dinner as well as helping to defray the cost of a retreat facilitator. Please RSVP to Tami or Carol.  
In March 2020 Census self-response packets are mailed to residences. We encourage you to take the census, and to ask your friends and neighbors to do so as well. Fair representation and vital community resources we all need to build a thriving community are dependent on an accurate count.
