Weekly Announcements, March 1

WORSHIP COMMISSION meets this Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.

A LENTEN STUDY focusing on the four Gospels and what each of them highlights continues on the four Wednesdays in March. Join us for worship at 6:30 p.m., followed by the study.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS are held at 6:00 p.m. each Friday during Lent. Walk with Jesus down the road to Calvary on The Way of the Cross, a powerful devotional liturgy that follows Jesus through His passion and death. At each station a meditation, versicle and response, and prayer is read

30 HOUR FAMINE Once again our youth will stand up for hunger around the world by participating in the World Vision 30 Hour Famine. World Vision has been working for over six decades to fight hunger. They are the largest global distribution partner of the United Nations’ World Food Program. In 2013 they reached over 7.5 million people in 33 countries with food assistance. On March 6 and 7 our youth will go 30 hours without food to learn what it is like for many young people around the world. They will also be raising money to send to Uganda, a country that has been stricken since their independence from the United Kingdom in 1962. The people of Uganda have faced political, economic and social challenges that have severely hindered development. Our youth have set a goal of $500.00 and appreciate your support in any amount to help us do our part. We will collect donations after the 8:00 service and before and after the 10:15 service from March 1 until March 29. Please make all checks payable to World Vision. If you would like to learn more or help in anyway please contact Cindy Spice at 348-7061.

A LENTEN RETREAT will be held on March 6 & 7 at Trinity Episcopal Church. See the poster on the bulletin board in the narthex for more information.
