JOIN US FOR OUR LENTEN STUDY: JOURNEY TO TRANSFORMATION
Throughout the season of Lent, we will be using a new book from the bishop of the Virginia Conference, Bishop Sharma D. Lewis, to guide us through this important season of the church year. Sharing her individual journey, Bishop Lewis invites readers to observe Lent by introspection, repentance, forgiveness, renewal, prayer, fasting, and Bible study. Journey to Transformation is divided into four sections: Lenten Devotional, Prayer, Reflection, and My Action. Since Lent is a time for self-examination and renewal, Bishop Lewis offers a “My Action” section each day to allow readers to continue to put into practice what they have read and reflected upon, and as an opportunity to transform someone’s life. This book encourages daily, individual devotional time, as well as weekly, group study. Pick up a book, and sign up today in the Narthex. Plan to join us for five consecutive Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the Small Fellowship Hall, beginning March 4.
SUNDAY MISSION LUNCHEONS
We will be having our 3rd Sunday Mission Lunch in March on the 15th. Irene Mullins will treat us to a variety of her Polish specialties. Her stuffed peppers are especially excellent! Join us after second service for this awesome meal. Lunch is by donation and recall that all proceeds will go to pay our missional apportionments. This program has been a successful opportunity of fellowship and a successful part of our apportionment plan.
Our 5th Sunday Mission Lunch is on March 29th, following the single worship service. Sunday School will be at 9:30am and Worship at 10:30am. Lunch is by donation, and all proceeds will go to support our Rise Against Hunger event in April. Please join us for lunch after worship!
We are planning our first Brunswick Stew for this year on March 20th, with pick-up at the church on March 21st. This is, again, a joint effort with our Scout Troop 178. Be sure to reserve your stew, as some folks were turned away when we sold out early. You can reserve your stew by calling the church office at 526-1350, signing up in the church Narthex, or with any member of the Finance Committee. The sign-up sheet for workers to help prepare, cook, and stir the stew can be found in the Narthex. All are welcome and appreciated.
Food Pantry: Cereal, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Spaghetti 1 lb boxes, Canned Pasta Sauce, Syrup, Pancake Mix, Rice, Shampoo, Conditioner, Soap, Hamburger Helper, Sugar, Canned Tuna, Pudding and Fruit Cups are needed. Please bring your donations and leave them in the food pantry bucket located in the Narthex. Specifically, we request easy things for children to fix for themselves.
Our Daily Bread Food Pantry is looking for volunteers to help with distributing food or picking up items from the grocery store. If you can help or would like more information, please contact Bernadette Gilmore, 804-914-0293.
