Saturday Morning Lenten Devotions 2024
Once again this year, as we have done for numerous years, we will share in Saturday morning breakfast and devotions during Lent. This will start February 17 and run for six weeks ending March 23, Palm Sunday weekend. We will start at 8:00am and be done by about 9:00am.
We will meet in Fellowship Hall for the first gathering. This will be a continental type breakfast consisting of pastries or baked goods, fruit, yogurt, coffee or tea. There will be no cost to attend but an offering to offset costs will be taken.
Lent is a time for self-reflection and deepening one’s relationship with God. One of the ways we can do that is through reading and meditating on God’s word. The devotions will provide one such opportunity.
We will use “The Third Day – Living the Resurrection” by Tom Berlin. Berlin offers insights into how the resurrection changed the lives of the first disciples who followed Jesus. They were blown off course by the crucifixion. The experience of the resurrection is what put them back on course. The experience can change our lives as well. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Church Council Town Hall Meeting
Church Council is always interested in feedback from the congregation. To provide another opportunity for that to happen, Council will hold an informal informational meeting with the congregation on Sunday, February 18 at 7:30pm in the lounge. Snow date will be February 25. We will review the work of Council in 2023 and answer any questions or concerns the congregation may have. All are welcome to attend.
