Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series - Stories. We all have them. We have all heard them. We all learn from them. This Sunday we will continue our preaching series, Life Lessons from the Prophets, as we look to the stories of these prophets who walked by faith and not by sight. This week we will look to Elijah to see how to continue to follow God, even when those around us do not. Bring a friend and come join us, as we all learn together!

2. Bible Study - We are continuing our Bible Study entitled, Delving Deeper: A Journey Through Phillipians. This is a study written by local author and pastor, Charissa Jaeger-Sanders. We are using journaling, sketching, and doodling as a means of connecting with this piece of Scripture as we go verse-by-verse. I encourage you to come and join us in this study that will stretch you, educate you, and enlighten you. All the details and the form to register can be found by clicking here. It is never to late to join and we would love to have you! Invite a friend and I hope to see you all there!

3. DeNease Hicks - Tomorrow, February 11th, at 11 A.M. we will all gather in the Sanctuary to celebrate the life of DeNease Hicks. There will be reception following the service in Fellowship Hall. As you are available, I encourage you to come and support this family as we celebrate and remember this dear woman who influenced so many.

4. Scout Sunday - This Sunday, February 12th, we will celebrate and honor those young people that are involved in the Scouting Troops we sponsor here at Druid Hills UMC. In this service we will get to hear their oaths, be lead by their service, and have the opportunity to express to them, and their leaders, how much we value them and how proud we are of them. Come and join us as we pay tribute to the dedication and loyalty of these fine young people. I hope to see you there!

5. Ash Wednesday - February 22nd is Ash Wednesday. This year you will have several opportunities to mark this time of remembrance. On that day, from 7 A. M. - 8 A. M. and from 12 P. M. - 1 P. M., the Sanctuary will be open for you to come and silently pray. Pastor Daryl will also be there to offer you an imposition of ashes on your forehead. There will also be a formal service at 6 P. M. in the Sanctuary that evening. Please mark your calendars to take advantage of this opportunity.

Have a great weekend and see you Sunday!
