    THE LENTEN LABYRINTH

    In the Sanctuary or in the Parking Lot

    Please feel free to walk the maze/labyrinth at the front of the Sanctuary! Pick up a stone from the basket to represent the burden you carry today. It can be your pain, your fear, your guilt, your need. Carry it with you as you follow through the maze. Keep the Green tape to your right as you walk. When you finish your walk, leave your burden at the altar in a glass container. There is also an outdoor labyrinth by the lighted marquee sign in the parking lot. Contact: Kathy Glass and the Worship Ministry Team.


    PEACE LILIES FOR THE CHANCEL

    Orders due Palm Sunday, April 14, 2019

    Help beautify our Sanctuary on Easter Sunday by ordering Peace Lilies now. The cost is $10 per plant. Please place your order by filling in this form and placing it, along with your payment, in the offering plate or mailing it to the church. Orders are due Palm Sunday, April 14, 2019.

    LENTEN BOOK STUDY GROUPS

    "Why?" by Adam Hamilton

    The Book we have chosen to use to help us reflect in our Lenten journey this year is “Why?” by Adam Hamilton. This book is a chance to talk about some of the big questions we all have. We will have studies between Ash Wednesday and Holy Week. While this is a small book, it holds great promise for all our spiritual development.

    Sign up sheets are on the bulletin board in the Narthex. All groups will meet in the Church Library. Group times and facilitators are:

  • Sundays after worship at 11:30 am beginning March 10 with Rosanne Stephenson facilitating
  • Tuesday mornings at 10 am beginning March 12 with Sharon Jackson facilitating
  • Thursday afternoons at 1 pm beginning March 14 with Gloria Phinney and Terri Himes facilitating
  • Books may be picked up on Sunday mornings. We ask for a $10 donation to cover the cost of the book. Questions? Contact Kathy Glass, kreativekathyg@aol.com
