Friends in Faith,
This Sunday, February 14th, is the first Sunday of Lent – the season of reflection and preparation – as we journey with Jesus toward the crucifixion and the resurrection. We’ll focus on the challenging encounter in Mark 10:17-31 between the rich young man – seeking what to do to enter God’s Kingdom – and Jesus… and try to come to grips with the radical response that Jesus gives. Here’s a video teaser to help you prepare. In addition to our chancel choir, the bell choir will share music with us during the service. And, we have a special Valentine’s Day themed coffee hour after worship.
But, before coffee hour, we hope you will join us for a Special Congregational Meeting after worship to discuss same-sex marriage. The Session is tasked with discerning whether same-sex marriages should take place in our sanctuary, and they are eager for your feedback. To learn more – and to access our questionnaire for your feedback – please visit the same-sex marriage resources on our webpage. We hope you will offer your perspective as we seek to move forward faithfully.
Mark your calendars for Feb 27th, 5-8pm for our Family Fellowship Night. The Outreach and Hospitality team would like to invite families and friends of the church to join us for dinner and a movie. This is a chance for us to get together and enjoy each other’s company. There will be warm comfort food served, and we will be watching a film perfect for all ages. We look forward to seeing you there!
