For the week of February 23, 2020

THIS WEEK WE CELEBRATE ASH WEDNESDAY Join us for worship at 7:00 PM Wednesday February 26.

IT'S TIME FOR OUR LANDSCAPING BAKE SALE. It will be Sunday, March 15th after both services. This year we'll purchase plants for the south side of the education wing. Thank you in advance to our bakers, buyers and rib smokers. Joan Linderman.

CHOIR will start meeting again for practice March 4 after the 7:00 PM Lenten Service. All are welcome. No tryouts! 😊

CELEBRATE OUR HISTORY! There are plates commemorating our 50th anniversary on a table in the Narthex.  They are free to a good home.

RIBS! Joan Linderman’s bake sale is coming up in March. If you would like to help Pastor Birner smoke a bunch of ribs for the sale, please let him know. It will involve building the Homecoming pig cooker, preparing the meat and tending to it over the course of one long day.

TAPROOT TICKETS - PLAN AHEAD Come see “See How They Run”, a farcical comedy on Wednesday June 3rd at 10:30 AM at Taproot Theater.

Meet at the church to carpool.  Last day to order tickets is February 29th. Please call Joan Linderman

THE FOOD BANK is running low on grocery bags. If you have any extra paper or plastic bags at home that you don’t need, the Food bank would be grateful for the donation. 

AROMA NEUTRAL/SCENT FREE: This is one of the comments from one of our members regarding fragrances and scents, “Pastor, when I smell certain things, my nasal and bronchial passages constrict and I have to leave. If it gets bad, I have to use an emergency inhaler or maybe even go to the emergency room.” Thank you for being considerate of the needs of others and working towards a more aroma neutral/scent free worship environment.

MATTHEW 17:8 – “And when they lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only.” Jesus is enough. Moses and Elijah point to Jesus and are happy to fade into the background. With our eyes focused on Him – and Him alone – the rest of our lives come into focus. He is primary; all else is secondary. When that order is right in our lives, things truly fall into place.
