LENT BEGINS TODAY The chief purpose of Lent is preparation for the celebrations of Easter, the greatest festival of the Christian Church. Therefore the focus of the Lenten season is on the suffering and sacrifice of Christ.
The Lunch Bunch meets this Tuesday, March 12th at The Green Frog Inn, 820 Spring Street. The time is 12 Noon. (Wear your green,
if you so desire!) A flyer is on the bulletin board in the narthex where you can sign up and indicate whether you would like to carpool or drive directly to the restaurant. We especially invite new people to join us, too! Please see Anita Grams at church with any questions, or you may call her at 449-9682.
THERE IS A FINANCE MEETING scheduled at 6:00 p.m. this Wednesday.
FRIDAY EVENINGS IN LENT: Stations of the Cross will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Friday 3/15, 3/22 and 3/29, 4/5 and 4/12. 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.
