Reflections from My Rearview Mirror
An outstanding assortment of soups and chili for our coffee hour on the 12th. Only to be out done by the fellowship which we are blessed with when we have these opportunities.
Many Thanxs for your generous support of the Diaper Pantry. When we reopened after the holidays we were better supplied than I think we have ever been. As we have been blessed so can we extend that blessedness on to others who are in need.
So what will Be Happ’ning?? Stitchers will meet on Monday 3 February at 10am. We often continue our fellowship with a lunch out and about our community.
Wednesday discussion group will finish A People’s History of Christianity before Lent begins.
Sunday 9 February is LASAGNA Sunday. I can’t invite enough folks to the house to help me consume all the lasagna in my freezer. So please come hungry for Italian that day. We’ll add some salad and garlic bread and feast.
Ash Wednesday falls on 26 February this year. Our noon program is in the works with a speaker and a DVD. Our Special Lenten offering will stay local this year to benefit the needs of our Coldwater and greater Branch county folks. More information will follow so stay tuned into our bulletins and RoBo calls.
We will also host the ecumenical Maunday Thursday service on 9 April at 7pm.
We are at that time of year when many of our tall steeple family members travel to warmer areas of the country. We love you and will be praying for your safe return to us.
May God’s Peace and Love enfold you,
