Today we welcome Bishop Doug Sparks.  Bishop Sparks will be the preacher and celebrant at both services today.  He will also confirm Ani Fazzaro, Claire Irvine, Andrea Pink, and Kenny White.  Amanda Fazzaro will be received, and AltaLee Stellhorn and Lewis “Smoky” Stellhorn will reaffirm their faith.  Please keep Ani, Claire, Andrea, Kenny, Amanda, AltaLee, and Smoky in your prayers.  A reception will be held after the 10:15 service.  A special offering will be taken for the Bishop’s Discretionary Fund, used to assist with emergency needs in and outside of our diocese.

CARRY-IN LUNCHEON on Sunday, Feb 24 after 10:15 service for Father Dan’s last day with St. Alban’s.  Don’t forget to sign the roster on the bulletin board if you plan to attend.

 

In January we received over $8,900 in donations but despite savings from a lower than expected gas bill and savings from prudently delaying other expenses our net income was still $700 below plan!

How much is your gas bill? St. Alban’s gas bill was still over $430! Remember to keep up with your donations because they help keep us all warm on these frigid winter days.  We also honor everyone’s dedication to St. Alban’s in giving their time and talent especially Barb Jackson for her 27 years of dedicated service leading the Altar Guild!  Thank you.  David Birchfield
