ANNOUNCEMENTs

Lent 2019

In just a few days, the Lenten Season will officially begin on Ash Wednesday.  You are encouraged to make it a priority to worship with us each Sunday as we embark on a new sermon series entitled “The Revolution”, in which we will investigate the Gospel of Luke along with Acts.

Also, please prayerfully consider adding one or more of the following Lenten traditions to your daily schedule:

  • Scripture Reading – Choose one of our Bible reading plans and spend time with God’s word each and every day. (NOTE – plans will be available Sunday, March 10)

  • Silence & Prayer – Set aside several minutes for prayer and silence with an emphasis on listening.  Focus upon what you have been reading & learning in Scripture.

  • Fasting – Intentionally lay aside a meal, specific food, object or habit.  Each time you desire or “hunger” for this item, pray that God would fill and fulfill you with His Spirit.

Annual elections conclude today - if you’re a member, please vote before or after the worship service. Election results will be announced at the annual meeting next Sunday, March 10 at 5:00pm.
