Jesus Christ is our Great High Priest is the theme for our Lenten Series this year.  It is based on readings from the book of Hebrews. There will be a Lenten meal before each Wednesday service.  The meal starts at 6:00 p.m. and the service is at 7:00 p.m.  There is a sign-up sheet in the cry room to bring food for the meals.

Evening Circle will be meeting again, starting on Monday, March 12 at 1:30 p.m. in the church basement.  The pastor will lead us in a Bible study, followed by a short meeting and fellowship with dessert.  Hope to see you there!

Food Drive: The successful food drive for Advent has moved the Council to have another one for Lent.  Boxes for the donated food are in the back of church until Easter.
