1. Preaching Series - We are continuing our Lenten preaching series entitled, The Drama. Our focus each week will be upon some of the people who interacted with Jesus in those last days; government and religious officials, disciples, and general followers. We began this series on Ash Wednesday reflecting upon our role in this drama, for we are not without a part to play. Over the last two weeks we have looked at the roles of Pontius Pilate and of Simon Peter. This week our attention will turn to the onlookers, those gathered at the foot of the cross. Bring a friend and come join us, as we all learn together!
2. Ordination Insight - The time has come! This Thursday, March 15th, I will give a one session talk about my Ordination Interview Process. I will give you some insight about the necessity of this process, share with you the paperwork requirements, insights and emotions felt during the process itself, and answer any questions you might have. I will offer this talk twice on March 15th, at 10am and 7pm. There is no need to register, just show up in the Fellowship Hall. Invite a friend and I hope to see you all there!
3. Time Change - Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday, March 11th. Do not forget to set your clocks ahead one hour this Saturday night before you retire for the night. Otherwise, you might miss church!
4. UMCOR Assistance - Many of you have heard about the devastating tornadoes that have hit parts of 12 different states including, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. As United Methodists we have an arm of our denomination devoted to helping those in this type of need. It is called UMCOR. UMCOR (United Methodist Committee On Relief), first and foremost, requests prayers for all who have been affected by these tornadoes and storms. If you would like to donate to this cause please mark your offering US Disaster Response, UMCOR Advance #901670, and we will forward it on. Thank you in advance for your faithfulness.
Have a great weekend and see you Sunday!
