Friday Fives

1. Preaching Series - Stories. We all have them. We have all heard them. We all learn from them. This Sunday we will conclude our preaching series, Life Lessons from the Prophets, as we have looked to the stories of these prophets who walked by faith and not by sight. This week we will look to Haggai to see what we can learn from this bold prophet that spoke out for people to consider how they were conducting themselves. 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. 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.

4. Boy Scout Chicken Dinner - Next Saturday, February 25th, from noon until 6 P.M. our Boy Scout Troop will be selling chicken dinners in our parking lot. The dinner includes a 1/2 chicken, 2 sides, and a roll for $7. Tickets can be purchased in advance or on that day.  The money raised will help send these young men to Boy Scout summer camp. I hope to see you there!

5. Biographies - We are in the midst of completing a book about the family members here at Druid Hills UMC. So often we know of each other, but do not know that much about each other. This book will help all of us get to know each other a bit better. We are asking that each person of the congregation fill out a biography form and return it to the office by February 26th. This book will not be complete without you!

Have a great weekend and see you Sunday!
