1. Sunday Worship - Lent is a season of introspection and self evaluation. It is a time for us to take a hard, honest look at our faith journeys and make the changes necessary to remove any barrier between us and God. As a means of help in those inspections, this Lenten season we will turn our focus to the person of Jesus Christ as we seek to understand the depth of his ministry, the focus of his teachings, and what lessons we can learn as we seek to model those ideals in our lives today. Come and join us as we look to the person and nature of the man we call Messiah as we take our journey of introspection and self awareness. For the sermon schedule, please click here. Invite a friend and I hope to see you all there!
2. Lenten Study - Jesus didn’t come to start a religion. The rebel Jesus came with a renegade gospel to start a revolution. You and I are invited to be a part. In Renegade Gospel, pastor and author Mike Slaughter presents Jesus and his challenging message to inspire us during Lent, Easter, and through the year. Come and join us as we seek to understand who Jesus is and what his ministry means for us today as Disciples of Jesus Christ.
We will meet Thursdays at 10am and again during FAD Night, you can pick either session that best fits your schedule. This class will run for the next three weeks, ending on March 26th. There is a book available for $11, if you wish to purchase it. I hope to see you all there!
3. Easter Tableau- Our Annual Easter Tableau, our gift to this community, is right around the corner. On Thursday, April 2nd and Friday, April 3rd, we will give the people of Ocala the opportunity to witness and relive for themselves the last week of Christ's life here on Earth. In order to make this a reality, we need your help. There are sign-up sheets on the Connection Station for you to volunteer in a myriad of ways. You can volunteer for things such as portraying a character in one of the scenes, to scene set-up, costumes, make-up, sound, or lighting. We still have many places for willing hands and we need yours! Please also be in prayer for a successful 2015 Easter Tableau. If you have any questions, please contact Linda Hughes or Terri Silvola-Finch. Thank You!
4. Talent Show - S.O.S. (Sisters of Soul) is hosting a birthday celebration and talent show on Saturday, March 14th at 7:00pm. That's right! We're going to celebrate YOUR birthday and entertain (well.....hopefully entertain!) you all in the same evening! Sign up sheets are available at the Connection Station where you will sign for your birthday month. One person from each month needs to volunteer to bring a birthday cake to share that evening while we enjoy the talent and someone else may want to decorate their table! AND whether you read some poetry, sing, tell us a joke or do a little jig, please sign up on the sheet labeled TALENT so we can get with you to organize the evening. Questions????? Ask any member of S.O.S.
5. Spaghetti Dinner - We are once again hosting a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for the church this month. It will consist of spaghetti with meatballs, salad, bread, dessert and beverage. This fundraiser will help us continue to care for our campus and fund the ministries of this congregation. The date will be Friday, February 28th from 4:30 to 7 pm. The cost is $7 for adults, $4 for children. To-go orders are also available. You can purchase tickets in advance or at the door. This is sure to be a great time of fun, fellowship, and food. I hope you all can make it!
Have a great weekend and I will see you Sunday!
