Blanket Sunday

Sunday, February 24

10:00 a.m.


For many years, our church has been helping to keep our neighbors warm by providing blankets to families here in the United States and around the world. What difference can a blanket make? A blanket can provide warmth to a victim of a flood or fire or serve as bedding to a guest in a homeless shelter or be a gift of welcome to a newly arrived refugee or migrant worker. 


Today our church has an opportunity to provide hope to many families. Our church is taking a special offering to help provide blankets and other emergency items to families all around the world. 


For only 10 dollars, you can give a blanket that can provide warmth and shelter, comfort and privacy, and healing and hope wherever God’s people may need care.

Lent Begins Ash Wednesday, March 6


Ash Wednesday

6:00 p.m. Soup Supper in the Parlor

7:00 p.m. Ash Wednesday Worship in the Sanctuary


Cultivating and Letting Go. We spend a lit of time and money on discovering ways to let go of things we don't need or use, in fact a whole industry is built around helping people de-clutter. We also deeply desire to live authentically by cultivating the best within us and in the world.


Would it surprise you that the church and the Christian faith have valued these same things? Why not make the forty days of Lent a truly spiritual experinece by joining us for worship, study, and prayer?


Sunday Worship is 10:00 a.m.

Thursday Evening Taizé Style Worship begins March 14 at 7:30 p.m.
