Updates for February 24, 2012

Sunday School observes the beginning of Lent with a One Room Church School focusing on the story of Noah’s Ark.

Observing Lent: Lent began February 22, and leads us on a six-week journey to Easter on April 8. The Christian Education program offers a number of ways for families to enter into the season. Download this Lenten Calendar to help kids mark the 6 weeks and 6 Sundays of Lent. Use the spaces on the calendar to mark off the days, or write in prayers or good deeds done. Also available, the pamphlet Lenten Disciplines for Family Life which has many suggestions for observing Lent.

On Wednesdays throughout Lent, the Sanctuary will be open and the Labyrinth set up for a time of prayer and reflection from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Following this, Heidi Ward will be leading an Adult Education program, “Spiritual Practices” from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Reception Room.

The More Than Words Book Drive continues. Donations may be left in the boxes in the side chapel.
