Weekly Announcements, January 31

PLEASE JOIN US for brunch and our Annual Meeting today.

WORSHIP COMISSION meets this Wednesday at 6pm. Please join us if you have any worship ideas.

SOUPER BOWL SUNDAY On February 7 the Food Bank will be collecting canned soup for Souper Bowl Sunday. This is an annual event that really helps us fill the pantry. Any kind of soup is good. Thank you for all your support of the Food Bank.

A SHROVE TUESDAY PANCAKE SUPPER will be held from 5:00 – 6:30 on February 9. Pancakes, sausage, fruit, and beverages will be served. Proceeds from the free will offering will go to the Operating Fund. Please sign the poster in the narthex so we will know how much food to purchase. Join us and bring your friends!

ASH WEDNESDAY liturgies, with the imposition of ashes, will be held at Noon and at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday the 10th. The ashes are placed on our foreheads in the shape of a cross to remind us of the forgiveness granted us through the suffering and death of Christ and the gift of eternal life we have received. The Noon service is a said service and the 7:00 service is sung.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS are held at 6:00 p.m. each Friday evening 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, response and prayer is read.

ALTAR FLOWER AND SANCTUARY CANDLE CHARTS FOR 2016 are posted in the narthex. There are many open dates.

HELP IS NEEDED: The Fort Wayne Rescue Mission has asked for help one night a month for the next five months. It is concerning serving dinner. The serving time is from 4:30-5:30. No other preparations are necessary, just to be there. This is another wonderful opportunity for us (perhaps the men’s group) to reach out in our community. Please speak to or call Dave Krocker

WOMEN’S STUDY AND FELLOWSHIP will meet at 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month beginning in February, at the home of Marilyn Rafter. This group is open to any woman interested in sharing their love for Jesus through study and discussion. Twelve Apostolic Women, based on the woman in the lives of the Apostles will be our first book this year. Please call, Marilyn Rafter 437-6146 or Marilyn McClure 492-1724.

FORWARD DAY BY DAY devotional booklets for February through April are available in the narthex. Please take one for your personal or family devotion and another to give to a friend.
