This Wednesday, Feb. 17, is Ash Wednesday. From 5:30-6:30, all are welcome to drive under the portico at the Gathering Area doors to receive the imposition of ashes. Covid-19 safety protocols will be in place, and you won't have to leave the comfort of your vehicle. At 7:00, our Ash Wednesday service will be livestreamed. I will email a link that takes you right to our YouTube channel where you will be able to watch the service live. The video will then stay on our channel, so it may be watched at anytime.
Throughout Lent, all are invited to participate in "Praying Our Way to Easter." Pastor Mike has developed a weekly schedule that focuses on one Psalm each day. That way, we will all be reading the same Psalms each week. These daily Psalms will be posted on our website, Facebook, and Instagram. If you would like a hard copy of the schedule mailed to you, please let me know. Together, we will pray our way to Easter.
Next Friday, 7:00, is our Virtual Women's Game Night. If you would like to participate, please contact the office or Kaylene Holderman. It is going to be a lot of fun.
Don't forget to keep spreading the love, through our "Love Connection." This is going on throughout February, so keep "connecting" with each other. I know the weather hasn't been conducive to getting out, but hopefully some of this snow will melt and we can decorate a friend's door soon. If you need hearts, there are some in the office.
We continue to collect items for CAMO's "Give a Bucket of Care." Items needed: top (flat) twin or full sheets, bath towels, combs, reusable plates and cups, frying pans (10" or 12"), metal spatulas. Gently used, undamaged items are acceptable. We have 20 buckets to fill!! Items can be dropped off in the office.
