 The  Tuesday Evening Life Group will be taking a break and starting up again on Tuesday, February 25th (the day before Ash Wednesday). At that time we'll be reading  Wondrous Encounters Scripture for Lent by Richard Rohr. This is a book of daily meditations for Lent. This would be a good time to join us if you're interested. We meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. We'll be meeting each Tuesday starting February 25 and ending March 31 or April 7. Easter is April 12th. 
Please contact Rod Allen at 360 609-7832 with any questions.

Do you need your own Name Tag?

 Roy Bishop and Tammie Kirkland have   negotiated for $3 name tags like the   ones they wear. If you and your family   want name tags, place your order with   Beverly Olson on Sundays, February 16   or 23. 
  Video Assistance: We are in need   of a couple more people who would   be willing to turn the video camera   on each Sunday. We have a few   people, but there are times that an   extra person or two would help   assure we get each Sunday recorded. It is definitely an EASY job. You don't need to be   tech savvy for this. Please let Sherry or Ron know if you are interested so you can be   shown what is needed.

               MEN'S SERVICE WEEKEND

 Set your calendar for  March 27 - 29  for the   second annual MEN'S SERVICE WEEKEND for   men of the  United Methodist Churches of Clark   County and the Pacific Northwest. It will be held at   Ocean Park  Retreat Center. 

 This will be a great opportunity to get to know men from fellow churches while   serving  a great cause.

 We will not only have outstanding fellowship, we will perform a variety of important   tasks to help your  camp prepare for the busy summer season. The projects were   chosen to allow various abilities and  capabilities so that all may participate. The   projects include, but are not limited to: updating exterior  lighting, maintaining the   ocean view from Sea Breeze Lodge, trail clearing, challenge course clearing,   and  interior painting. This is rain or shine. If the weather is too harsh for outside,   there is the painting and  repair work.

 During our first Men's Service Weekend in 2019, we not only cleared much of the way   for the new zip  line, split and stored firewood, and repaired tables and chairs.

 There is a $40 fee to cover the cost of meals for Saturday and Sunday morning. If   anyone has concerns  about the costs, please contact Brandon Scheer, camp director.   To register, go to opretreat.org/retreats.

 Our camp relies on volunteers in order to provide the important ministry that it   serves. Please plan to  come and meet new friends while enabling our Ocean Park   Retreat Center to thrive.

 If you have any questions, please contact Tom Musser by text or voice at 360-607-3472
